    Ed - I expect you'll like it up here in the Northeast. There are plenty of mountains, roads with many curves, and good places to eat which can be a short ride away. There are active BMW MOA Chapters in Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont. You'll like it a lot, I'm sure.

    Please tell us where you'll be living, and what you ride. You'll receive lots of interesting advice, I'm sure.

    See you on the road! - JG

    NH bound

    Welcome to New England. Check out the Yankee Beemers, by far the largest and most active club in the area. Why would anybody not want to be a part of a club whose operating motto is "YB Normal?"

    Welcome to NH!

    Wilmot is a great spot as a base. A good loop is 4 west, 118 north, 112 west, 302 west, 110 VT south, 14 west, 107 west, 12 south through Barnard and Hartland into NH, then back home.

    Another is go east on 112 at the 118 split (The Kancamagus Hwy), north on Bear Notch Hwy to Bartlett, 302 east (or West Side Rd) into N. Conway, find Hurricane Mountain Rd east out of Intervale, then you have options to go south and back west to home, or go north to 113 through Evans Notch, and back west to home.

    Enjoy!

    Rode a lot of that a few weeks ago and had a great time. Go to the top of Mt Washington if you get the chance too.

    Maines a lot of fun

    It's easy to cut over from New Hampshire to Maine. While New Hampshire doesn't have a lot of coast line, Maine's coastline is incredible. If you have the chance to ride up on Rte.1 North, be sure to stop off at Bentley's Saloon. It's a great biker bar, lots of fun and always a good band playing.
