I'm in SHerbrooke, QUebec, about 45 minutes from the border and NewPort... So not really far from you.

I was thinking on taking a day trip to Kancamagus highway sometime soon. Love that place even by car so...

Luc, glad to see you ! The Kancamangus Highway is probably my favorite ride, my bike's practically steer there on their own LOL. Have you ever ridden up around Bethel or towards Camden/Rockland ? Usually good but can get crowded in mid-summer...

No I haven't yet but thanks for the cue! I've never really toured on a motorcycle. This is my first "real" one. And in this part of the USA, my usual travel ways are directly to Cape Cod on the highway, so I was missing out on a lot of nice stuff. Have to fix this now :)

I just got back from North Conway run, took Rt. 25 and 153. Roads took it hard this winter. They were paving the Kanc last summer, wonder what kind of shape it's in this spring ?

Got all excited that there was a post in the NE section thinking that I might have some KTM'ers to ride with. Y'all are like 10 hours away! Ha! Aw well.

Shot at local beach, 10 minutes from my house.
Hey Pete, nice shot to start, and second, looks like you have the KTM touring screen mounted. How do you like it? I have one on order for those longer trips.

Hey there Lowcruzr, time to get excited again. I have the same black Duke 390, today is its two week anniversary and I live just west of Syracuse in the burbs :D
Going for my first service next Friday in Ithaca, cannot wait to rev past 7500

So definitely a lot closer :)

Coastal living has it's upside, glad you like the pic. I like the screen a lot, it does move some air away at higher speeds. I like the smaller screens personally, more the mic to the bike. Good price also a plus !

Hello! I just came back from Duroy today for my first service!

Sadly, the mechanic was not in today (sick), but the garage dispatcher did the oil change and checked the list for me. The only thing he missed was to reset the service counter AND he didn't check the valve gaps. It would have taken too long anyways. I will look into doing it myself later on.

Have you already ordered yours from Duroy? Don't think they have any left?

Take care!

I have a close friend with a camp in Cleveland, NY right on Oneida. I'll be taking it there for certain this summer.
