Your Ride Reports / Re: Hogback Mountain
« on: October 21, 2017, 08:25:57 AM »

I took a break from work yesterday and looked for Fall colors and some interesting roads.  Got a little bit of each.  My ride went across Massachusetts along HWY 2 with a nice ride along the Quabbin Reservoir and a few brief stops.  I then rode farther west through the Pioneer Valley to the town of Erving for a nice lunch at an antique shop named the Freight Station that also had a lunch counter.  Pushed further west after lunch until HWY 112 and rode that north to Vermont and connected to HWY 9 and looped back east with another stop at the grand lookout of Hogback Mountain.  Quite a few people enjoying the view.  Speaking of views, here are a few photos from the trip.

Thought I had the rest stop to myself and then some dude in red pick-up truck rolls into the parking lot and ruins my photo.

I got a new iPhone and have been playing around with the panorama feature.  This is looking east over the Quabbin Reservoir.  I know you can't see the water in this photo, it would be off to the right or south from this vantage point.

Lunch at the Freight Station antique shop.  This tuna salad sandwich has more calories than their burger.  It was good.

The antique shop was huge and in one corner they had a bunch of guitars.

The view from Hogback Mountain overlooking the forest to the southeast.

The guardrail along the overlook is cluttered with stickers and graffiti.

Days are getting shorter and the sun was getting a bit low in the sky so I hustled myself home along HWY 2.  About a two and a half hour ride from Hogback mountain back to home.

Hope I get some more days to ride this year... it's always hit and miss with the weather and available time.

I know exactly where those first 2 shots were taken at on Route 202N side.

What is wrong with these bugs.  Had a great ride to the TX coast this week.  A sure sign of a good ride is a filthy bike at rides end.

What this at night or during the day?

I like it a lot.  Bought it new in May 2015.  Had to drive 5 hours to pick it up in Northern Maine.

Happy New Year NHF members.  Hope everyone had a great 2016 and will have an even better 2017.  I think all of us that are fortunate enough to own and ride a motorcycle are tremendously blessed.  Posting my mileage at the end of '16 for posterity.
Got in close to 7K miles this year.  No big trips, just stress reliever rides after work and weekend getaways.  Just installed a new rear tire(which I am reviewing in tire thread) and new chain and sprockets.  Had a good 100 mile ride yesterday that reminded me of how much I enjoy my NH.  Hope to go well over 100K on my 750 and then use it as a parts bike for a replacement 750.  Happy riding.

Well done Hog Dog.  I actually rode less last year.  No particular reason.. :sleep:

I picked up a low profile rolling rack at Harbor Freight during their Black Friday sale. Seems to work really well and is very sturdy.

Does it try roll around when you are putting the bike on it?

Hello everyone, I'm new here and new to motorcycles period. I have always wanted to learn although the wife hates the idea completely.  Just bought this 93' NH from a friend who has had it for awhile but doesn't use it at all, he is a mechanic and got it running smooth again, looks great to me, but I did have a question? I noticed the stems in the mirrors have pitting on them, is there a place to get these brand new? It is an old bike but I guess I would ask, thanks. Here is pic of the new baby, looks almost new to me, very happy

That bike looks it great shape....

Original seat was suffering from 20 years of sun, dirt and air.  Decided to recover it last night.  Pretty easy project, took about an hour.

That turned out pretty good..
