Bike Run with United Bikers of Maine

The wife and I haven't gotten much riding in this year because of the rain.   Earlier this month we went on a two hundred mile run with The United Bikers of Maine - Franklin County.   The weather was bright and cool; perfect for a bike run.  Our route took us through the western Maine mountains and over the height of land overlooking the Rangeley Lakes, finally ending at the Moose Alley in Rangeley.

A little bit of sore biker ass when we got home, but a great ride.

A spider: seeing more and more of these with old folks.

Black one in the middle: my bike.   Pretty lady with the white hair: my wife.

Great looking Honda

If I could have one more bike - this would be it: Honda Valkyrie.

Rest stop

Height of land. great view

This was called a poker run.  Twelve dollars a rider.
 Five stops, at each stop you draw a card
At the destination the best hand wins 50% of pot.
Other half goes to Christmas baskets for needy in the county.

Final destination.  Chow down.
Everyone splits up
 and then seventy miles back to the house.  

The Ol'Buzzard


  1. That Spider one...looks like my cup of arthritic, old man tea. No way I could handle anything else.

  2. This looks like so much fun. Sadly, I can't handle riding any more. Our last trip we went from Ft. Lauderdale down to Key West and I thought I was going to die. Of course the weather was steamin' and that didn't help any.

  3. looks like fun, not my kind of fun, but fun nether the less. I prefer having steel wrapped around me and unable to see the ground ..

  4. That spider thing looks like something I could handle. Otherwise no bikes for me as I have no sense of balance.
