Boston is not my kind of fun but a great place to say youíve been there.We found the sign by our hotel and I wanted to run the bikes up on the sidewalk and take a photo but the Executive committee vetoed the idea and won so we talked a passing native into taking our photo.
    Great stuff - thanks for all your posts - glad you and your wife made it safe and sound - good luck on your trip back!

    Yes, I enjoyed it as well, I wanted to see how the RTs performed and apparently they both did a really good job, especially the one pulling the camper. Well done....

    Consider getting the Annual Senior's Pass for the National Park System. I recall $80 for the year and it gets access for the bike and both passengers. Unlimited across USA, and unlimited in numbers of time you may want to ride any particular Park. A fabulous discount for Seniors.

    The senior pass costs $80 but is good for the rest of your life. It dosent expire after a yr. Iv had mine 3 yrs an its still good. If your under 62 years old you can buy a pass thats good for 1 yr for $80. At 62 years old you buy the senior pass thats good for life.
    yes I bought mine for $10 dollars right before the price hike to $80

    Default Coast to Coast and Vermont

    We have been living large in Vermont thanks to the great hospitality from Mike Long. He has led us on some fantastic rides and even to the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire . We hate to leave the great weather but itís time to head to Wisconsin. We will remember Vermont thanks to Mike.

    As I posted in another Thread - they just left Vt. and are headed to Buffalo / Niagara Falls, Dave was thinking three days to get there …. Their plan was to go into Canada and take the Mackinaw bridge across the Lake..... His cell phone should work now that they are out of Vt., so I'm sure He will see your post and add info …. you could leave Him a PM also …… Mike

    We left Vermont and headed west to New York, crossed over the Champlain bridge and up over the Adirondacks which are beautiful. We ended up in Middleville where Ellie could check out the Herkimer diamonds and buy some souvenirs.

    Default Coast to Coast New Youk

    We made it Corning after riding in the rain all day and when we stopped for a room it stopped raining, we were close to the Corning Glass Museum so we walked, I had been there before but I really wanted Ellie to see it. They have glass that goes back 4,000 years.

    Made it to Niagara Falls then stopped for the night in Saint Catharines, we may lay over a day and check out the wine country. We did manage to find some pretty good Poutine.

    How about that top of Mt Washington! Big chains holding down the house up there. Recorded 256 mph winds. Highest ever on earth, I think. Was there on Spyder 2 yrs ago.

    Default Coast to Coast, Michigan and Fathers Day

    We rode in the rain all across Ontario and spent the night in Sarnia. We headed north along Lake Huron then turned West to Cadillac MI. We hope to ride the tunnel of trees tomorrow. I thought about my dad a lot today as it was his stories of traveling the states on his Harley in the 30s that inspired this trip.

    After crossing Michigan we headed north to Petosky where we rode north through the tunnel of trees and it is as beautiful as the trip guides say. We had lunch at an old Inn named Legs Inn that a Polish emigrant built with salvaged material in 1920 , it has great polish food. We camped in Mackinaw City and crossed the Mackinaw Bridge over to Michigan’s UP and stayed in Mystique , we hop to make Green Bay tomorrow.
