Ride to Putney Vt. and Curtis BBQ

A nice ride up north for a visit to Curtis BBQ in Putney Vermont. I've driven by it many a time, but never had the opportunity to stop. A nice ride up there with only a short ride on Rt. 2 for highway. For those who want to slab it home, I-91 is right there.

    What to thank everyone for making the new "kids" feel so welcome. It was a pleasure to ride and spend the day with you all. Looking forward to doing it again in the not so distant future.

    I wasn't on this ride but was happy to run into you guys at the BBQ. Many thanks to Dr. Corman for reviving the patient from the BSR group whose Kawasaki had flat-lined while he was eating lunch.

    Chuck...are there any meetup places along the route? Was thining about heading out 119 and getting on 12

    July 23, 2013

    • Dave F

      John I will call you...

      July 26, 2013

    • Dave F

      Renee...sounds like a plan...we can meet at Gourmet Donuts? - my cell is[masked] Give me a call tonight and we can pick a time

      July 26, 2013

  • Chuck C.

    Sharon, aka, Miss Daisy has told me about another BBQ place very close to Curtis. Top of the Hill BBQ in Brattleboro looks like another place to consider. I think we'll have a vote at KSU time on where to try!! Google both places and let me know your thoughts. Right now I think the Top of the Hill looks better for a group with both deck and outside seating.

    July 20, 2013

    • Sharon M

      Hmm, that won't leave much room for ice cream.

      July 22, 2013

    Something came up and I have to miss the ride. Have to wait to try the CB.

    July 25, 2013

  • Annielikeslyrics

    Hey, is anyone up for taking along a passenger? My girlfriend Kim would like to come along with us and Mike's bike is not really passenger friendly and I definitely don't have enough experience to have someone on the back. Let me know.

    July 24, 2013

    • Annielikeslyrics

      Thanks Chuck - I knew Miss Daisy was taking your backseat so I'm hoping someone else would be up for it. Kim is an experienced back seat sitter if that makes a difference to anyone.

      July 25, 2013

    • Chuck C.

      OK.... I got Kim a back seat for the ride on Saturday. Does she have her own helmet? She gets to ride on the Trike.

    Hi Chuck, Sandra and I are hoping to catch you guys on 12. Do you have a ksu so we can be early for an intercept.

    July 24, 2013

    • Chuck C.

      We will be leaving Ashland between 9-9:15. Should hit the 12/140 connection about 10:30ish. Call me on my cell and I can tell you where we are along the route. Add a little more time if 119/12 in Fitzwilliam. [masked]

  • Chris D.

    i am wondering if any of you communicate via FRS, CB, etc. while on the bikes? My bike is rigged for comm so it would be good to know beforehand .. thx

    July 24, 2013

    • Chuck C.

      We always use Chan 4 on the CB for communication and safety on all the rides.

      July 24, 2013

    • Chris D.

      Good to know! I will bring mine and monitor Chan 4. Thx!

      July 24, 2013

    My first ride with this meetup, finally! Looking forward to it!

    hopefully I will have a headset by then.

      Where would the fun be in that? Stick and I have the Sena RH10s, they are awesome!

      July 23, 2013

    • Chuck C.

      Linda will find out what we're really like during these rides when she figures out how to use her new headset....

      July 23, 2013

  • Linda

    Got my headset just have to figure out how it works.

    Also, passenger only members should post that they would like to join us on the specific rides.

    July 21, 2013

  • Chuck C.

    We have quite a few passenger only members that would love to go on some of our rides. If you have an open back seat and would like a passenger, please post that on the rides you sign up for. You will meet some great people as I have offering your back seat.

    I did this ride 2 weeks ago. We took Rt119 to 63 in Brattleboro to Rt 9 and 5 going there. It was a great ride out and not a lot of traffic. Coming home we found that its actually faster to take rt 9 into Keene and South on Rt 12/140 to Rt 2 than take I-91 to Rt 2. It is also more direct. Took us about 3.5 hours going out with 1 stop and 2 hours coming home.
