Actually the day after Sunday Four of us my nephew Peter and my next door neighbor John on their Harleys and I on my 1100CC Star Custom. Headed east on route three to south China where we meet with Peters friend Scott on his Harley. We continued east on 3 until we and reached the intersection of Rt. 1 and 3 where we took a short break to stretch and we decided to go south on one to Lincolnville where you had your lunch. We watch the ocean for a few minutes and checked each other’s rides. Peter’s HD Night train is very nice and has just the right amount of chrome to offset the black. John’s and Scotts bikes are customized just enough set them apart from the crowd. My Star custom has some added chrome and grips and mirrors.
While we were there a young Asian man who rode up on a mountain bike and started taking pictures of the bikes. As he moved up the bikes he zeroed in on Peters Night train and asked if he could have his picture taken on the bike. Peter let him set on the bike and took a picture and then one with his hands on the handle bars. He got back on his bike and paddled off into the sunset.
From there we went to Camden, It took almost an hour to get through there. Then on south to Rockland and Duncan Donuts and took a break. It was such a nice ride we decided to continue on RT 1 S to Thomaston until we got to the turnoff to Bar Harbor where we ran into traffic again until we reached Wiscasset and took a break after crossing the bridge. Inching along our pipes got warm and so did our legs. We broke for about twenty minutes talked and waited for traffic to lighten up then we headed out of town and picked up Rt 27 north to Randolph then RT 9 north to Augusta and home.
Yes a great day and ride.
