New England Motorcycle Tour

COG National in Mt. Snow VT
We had a great trip to VT for the 2011 COG National Rally at Mt. Snow VT 
COG Rally Banquet

After a great week at the Rally we headed to Burlington to see our old friends Ross and Kathy who spend the summer at the campground there.

Leaving Burlington for ME.  Rained All Day

Leaving Burlington we traveled to ME to visit my radio friend Norm KB1OV in Bridgton ME.
Another Norm also traveled down from Norway ME and we also met K1NAJ.


When it stopped raining we took off for the mid-coast of ME and stayed at a nice inn in Belfast.  It was not too far and we had some time to sightsee in town and go to a state park in the afternoon.  We had dinner and breakfast at the Inn and took off for home.

Belfast Harbor
We stayed at the Penobscot Bay Inn and I would recommend it if you want a nice place to stay.  The food was good and the rooms were great for sleeping.

We stopped once more in Stockbridge MA and headed home on the NJT.  This was a full two week trip and we had a great time but were glad to be back home with our dog Jack.
