Hey, just joined chopcult after a recommendation from a friend. I live in southern Vermont, near Brattleboro. Been building a KZ1000 chopper for way too long now. Riding season is winding down up here but I've got a heated garage and a bike to finish; just looking to meet some like minded people to hang and ride with. Thanks.

Hey thanks for the welcome, madriver. I saw a post you put in another thread; do you have a bike shop? If so, where? Take it easy.

Hey there, I'm in Addison County by lake champlain. I run a small shop. Welding, machine tools, towing and hauling. I'm known to most as Mac. I've been on CC for just a little while myself, nice to meet you fellas. Over the internet anyways.

Jesus...

You woodchucks should stop by - well, you should have stopped by - now that route 100 through the gulf is gone...maybe not so much - - but I got to get you guys out riding with the rest of the New England reprobates...

They're should be a pack of VTers leaving for the Herding Cats party in August (http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?p=516280#post516280) - you should definitely hit that up (Sunderland is like 20 minutes from Brattleboro) - we do spring and fall runs out of our farm in Granville - always a good time, just underrepresented by the VT folks (and would probably have a shop up and operational were it not for that **** Irene) ...

Hyde802
07-08-2013, 8:43 AM
I thought about going to that, but its the same weekend as my Off road club is hosting a pretty large meeting for the rest of the New England Assoc of 4wd clubs...

Stuff like this-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHDNawajgD4

This one is my video --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7591_BMdB8o

Some other time for sure though.. I did about 250 miles this weekend went through Grotton state forest, through danville, morrisville, then back down 12 to East Montp. (abouts where I live) and then took 110 down to Royalton on sunday then back up 14 through randolph and the like, was sure nice to have it not be raining.

I put 350 miles on sat. Through Vt and upstate Ny. I live in White river and took Rt 4 to Rt 7 up to Rt 2 to the Canada boarder, Then over to 9 and 22 in Ny to Crown point back to Vt then 125 through the green mountains back to 4 in killington back to white river. That was a great ride worth doing if you get the chance.

No. Bike is still in the basement. Waiting on some pipes and a couple other small things. I will never get them on if I take it out. It sure has been beautiful out though. I just grumble everytime I see someone ride past my house. I'm riding to the Smokeout in NC in June so I'll make up for lost miles.

I hate the idea of it, but in September I might have to cage it up so I can bring the wife, otherwise I won't be able to go at all. With the Gypsy Run 2 weeks prior and only getting ever other weekend off, she won't be happy if I straight up ditch her for the dudes again.

Hey guys, I'm in the Bennington/Albany area and was wondering if any of you know of any guys/shops in the area who can rebuild a shovelhead top end. Even within a couple hours would be fine. Any help would be appreciated

Whatup fellow Vermonters.....wish I would have been on chopcult the past few years! Would have been cool to meet up and hit up some gaps. I am out of Underhill VT but just moved west for the winter a few months ago. Not sure what my springtime plans will be, might land back in Burlington. That being said I need to get my scoot ready regardless. Sold a few of my finished projects to afford this FXR, which turned out to be a lemon. In search of an EVO (cases or cheap motor) if anyone knows of anything. FML

Hey all. If any of you are interested a couple buddies and I will be going around Maine May 30th till June 3rd then we are planning on hitting up L.A.M.B and finishing the week out with that group. Hit me up if you want to punish your body for 8/9 days. To be honest this is very fly by the seat of your pants, no real plans other then route and very budget minded. Looking to spend maybe one night at a campground in Bar Harbor other then that its prob gonna be find a trail and camp. What better way to kick off the summer then a trip around Maine and then L.A.M.B?

I pushed to "finish" my FXLR by yesterday to ride over to the Keene swap meet. I rode solo as my friend Morgan cut off two finger tips with the circular saw.A couple of miles away I hit a huge stop and go (mostly stop) traffic jam that reminded me of Laconia Bike Week. Didn't feel like frying my clutch and burnin up my new oil change so turned around and headed back to Brat for sushi/beer. Just an awesome day and ride. It's been a long winter. I feel re-newed.

What you got planned for August 1st?

HXC IV is the 1st and 2nd of August...

There should be a few kats rolling out of White River (we'll see who Travis ropes in and what Adam's plans are)

Friday the 31st, there's a party on the North Shore of Mass...

Got a pool and a place to camp at my place (in Mass) for you if need be...

Come on down and we'll talk Gypsy plans...

I know they'll be a group flowing out of VT down 7

Ace is weeks away from dropping my baby girl, so I may not make the Gypsy this year

So you're headed pretty far North.
I should be around to meet up but would know better the day before if we can talk then.
From my neck of the woods you could pick up RT.100 N which you probably have done before, it's pretty nice.
Been a bit wet round here lately so I hope it dries up for you.

@MRMCO - Warren Falls in Warren VT.

If you are currently have motorcycle license, registered, insured, inspection sticker, DOT helmet, eye protection - you are good to go.

You are a little short on the catching sarcasm part. I swim at Warren Falls almost every fucking day. It's literally a 15 minute jam up the Gulf. Sometimes, I doubt the sanity of some of you. I couldn't have kids at The Warren School and NOT know where Warren Falls is.
