    just wanted to say hello to the forum. I'm a "newbie" to this site, but far from a "newbie" when it comes to riding. I have been riding for over 30 years. ridden from Granby, Montreal, Canada to West Palm Beach, Fla. my current bike was new 3 years ago, and now has almost 38,000 miles. mostly all day trips.
      I am a tech for a Suzuki/Kawasaki/Polaris dealership. I currently ride a 2008 Suzuki B-King (only year you can get in the states)
    my hard drive that has all my pictures is temp. down, but I do video many of my rides. videos can be found on Youtube.com under user name: SOCBandit600.

    Well, welcome to the fourm from a transplanted Jersey Girl. I lived right there in the Atco raceway area. Wharton State Park and down through Batso was anyway some of the best riding around, unless of course ya got up to High Point park area. Have a great one "T"

    Tumbles...I do take the bike to Atco for bikenights. I live in central Jersey, just north of Trenton. I ride up to High Point almost everytime I'm out. not many back roads between home and there I haven't been on

    UfnTool27,
    Only someone from Jersey would say Trenton is in central Jersey, where it really is, everyone else things that Northern Jersey.
    Highpoint is a really nice place, I grew up in North West Sussex County right off the AT.
    Definately not what people think of when they picture NJ.
    Welcome.

    Ah then you get to ride along 32 and 611 alot then. Years ago it was such a great route to ride I don't know if it still is or not but I know about 7 years ago sometimes it just felt like a parade. So, They still do the bike nights and such at Atco? Awesome, I remember seeing Big Daddy Don Garletts, and Shirley, Connie the bounty Hunter all racing at Atco as it was known as the fastest track on the east coast., I think that was the hay day of the drag strips. Man Jackson Road would be backed up all the way to route 73 or 206 as folks poured in to see the races. However all throughout the Pinelands, North Jersey and Soutern Jersey where the farms are is fantastic riding too. Thanks for the memories. have a great one "T"

    I tend to stay on my side of the river. 32 and 611 can be a zoo, and alot of rocks and pebbles to worry about. if you want a taste of home, check out some of my videos on youtube, username:SOCbandit600. I never leave the house without it

    Yeah, River Road (32) and 611 can be a zoo, especially on weekends. Too damn many yuppie cagers. Not too bad weekdays. Jersey 94 was good a few years ago but I haven't been on it for a few years.
