The NER web site provided some inspirations for some of the NERDS VT routes, but they are not identical. Of course, come August folks should feel free to ride whatever route they want to.


Everyone in NER voted their favorite roads/eats/hotels/scenic views and they landed on the NER "best of New England" (aka BONE) site. No you don't smoke this BONE! :cigar:

The BONE routes are pre-storm damage so I'm looking forward to tested routes in VT being posted up on the NERD (Not to be confused with NER) site.

Petey and I will be riding up from the Southsweat. Looking forward to riding on the COOL VT mountains.


Oh, great. Just f'n great.

Now I'm gonna have to constantly be looking over my shoulder.

Otherwise Petey will sneak up on me again, all ninja-style and shit. :assassin:

Hey Geek, it'll be my pleasure to sneak up to you and say, HI, good to see ya... :clapping: :yahoo:

Any thoughts on what maintenance items may be covered for the Tech Day? Depending on what time I roll in I might be interested in a TBS.

I do recall somebody doing a valve check Scott, so I think a TBS should be doable ;)

Heck, Ed might even let ya wash yer bike too! But it's a few miles of gravel to get there and it will just get dirty on the way back to the Hotel...:lol:

Yes, Ed has an excellent home-made 4 channel manometer (TBS tool). We can even do the full completely unauthorized version with you, if you've never done that before.

Personally, I would not want to do a valve check during the Tech Day, only because you don't want to do anything quite that invasive the day before you want to ride. Just in case there are any problems... ;)

I discovered a new (to me) beverage this weekend: Heady Topper Double IPA. Delicious!!

Brewed in Waterbury Vermont; conveniently on the way to NERDS. Yippee!

Attention all NERDS! :clapping:

Website Update... Website Update...

I added a "Click here to see more details" button just above the Guest list on the right side of the NERDS Website pages. If you click it, you'll see a more detailed list of the registered attendees that shows who said they were planning to do what. It also shows the total counts in the various categories so you can get an idea of how many bikes/people are planning to be there.

If you see your name on the list and your choices are not correct or you want to change them, just resubmit the registration form with your new choices and the list will automatically be updated.

Stay tuned for more website updates in the coming weeks. The NERDS Treasure Hunt committee has a Super-Secret (shhh... don't tell anybody) planning session scheduled in March. Hopefully, soon after that we'll be able to provide more details about how it's going to work.

Ed.

NERDS is a fantastic ride and excellently run event. Sure wish I could be there again this year.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Why not? That "new" engine will need a nice long break-in.

LOVE the cow design, Fred! Sooze and I will be loading up for sure.

Maybe for next year we should call this "NERDStock" for the hippies.
