I like that route. I work right off of 66/17 in portland now. I took some of those roads to go to RI to pick up my tranny...nice ride.

here is another one more localized towards Uconn. Bumbfuck area, but decent roads.

The only thing is there arent great places to take pics at either gillettes or devils hopyard. If we swing over the bridge like you guys did last time tho there are some areas around the ferry where we can get along the coast I think.

go to my parents house? HAHA. there are actually a lot of good places down in saybrook to take pics I think. Id love to swing down into the golf course and take pics but that might **** people off.

Where do you guys want to start anyway?

Yeah I think that's the place, you can sit outside right next to the water. The earlier we meet the better that way I don't have to rush to go home to go to work

Its a long route. We dont have to stop at the castle, or even stop in otter cove in Old Saybrook. I figure we can grab food somewhere on rt 1... probably jonny ads

I am fine with starting somewhere else too.

Ignore the small blip on rt 154 that goes to 148...There is construction there still i think.

Sounds good to me, What time do you guys want to meet up? Personally I would prefer later but if I can't make it out there when you start I can figure something out. I'll be taking pics if we stop for em or not, rolling shots ftw!
