    New England, short tour.

    Took Friday off, met up with five friends and took a quick ride NE. Chilly mornings and late afternoons, but was OK with the right gear. Boston restaurants were hopping, and there was a ~fifty person line to get into Mike's Pastries.

    About 70/30 Biden/Trump signs. Lots of Black Lives Matter signs - but ironically, after Bridgeport, I didn't see a person of any color other than white for three days in those quaint, liberal New England towns. Made me think......

    I didn't see a single gun shop either.

    This wasn't the exact route - took mostly back roads, thanks to motorcycle-specific GPS routing. Probably about 750 miles, got back last night. Good ride, good friends.

    It's nice having a weekend off once in a while!

    You didn't happen to pick up Jack Nicholson hitchhiking by any chance?

            For gun shops visit Trader John's in Swanzey, NH and the Alstead Gun Shop in Alstead.

              You passed at least 8 gun shops from Nashua heading southwest.

                    No...I actually didn't. That's why I wrote that I didn't see a single gun shop - and was looking when we slowed in some towns.

                      Nice! i rode my bicycle from here to Boston (rode out to orient point to the new london ferry and then up through the shore of Rhode Island. Then i kept on going and circled Nova Scotia. But that was almost 50 years ago. Now, making it over the long beach bridge is an accomplishment

                        Are you suffering from withdrawal?

                          Imagine getting a good deal on a full size Mosin Nagant and having to ride with it sling across your back all the way home.
                          I would attach the bayonet and use it as a flag holder. Would a Trump or Biden flag attract less attention?
