Well, since I was up in Maine anyway (see my post in General Discussion, 2014 NHMS), I stopped in to see an old Coast Guard buddy I was stationed with in the early 70's. He's a biker, too - used to ride a Ducati single, and had a couple of Norton Commandos way back then. Now, he's updated to a 1990 FJ1200:


He's always been interested in all things mechanical, seemed pretty impressed with the sidecar, particularly that trick front suspension and steering.

From there, I headed to Houlton, ME, the eastern end of the eastern part of US Rt2:

Then I just started following signs for Rt 2 West. Riding along Rt2 in Maine, I saw Mt Katadhin in the distance,

and the White Mountains in NH,

and kept going til I got to Rouse's Point, NY, the western end of the eastern part of US Rt2:


Back home now, but in a couple of weeks, plan to head for St Ignace, Michigan, where Rt2 starts up again and follow it to Everett, Washington, all on my way to Summit Point next month Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
