Festival

I would like to know more about the Maine Lobster festival. We will try to make it next year. If you don't mind I would like the name of the town and date so I could get some info to plan a trip. We seem to always find out about activites after they are over. Thanks Bill D.

Hey, Joe--
In addition to hearing more about the festival, I'd love to know some of the 2-lanes you used between Virginia and Maine. I've made several runs from NC to NY using 2-lanes almost exclusively--much more pleasant for me than Interstate riding. I'm also considering a ride to Maine. If you'd share any of the roads you liked, I'd appreciate it!
Thanks--
OB

Several months ago I done got myself retired (as in no workie workie and not new tires), and playfully told co-workers that if I felt the need for a bowl of fresh clam chowder, I'd hop on the scooter and head northeast to Main and satisfy that craving. The last week or so, there have been numerous articles about fresh seafood in Maine.

Is this a sign?

Anyone else from AZ want to go get a bowl? Perhaps some freshly baked crab/lobster on the beach?

I headed out through Flagstaff on Friday, 8/12/11. then up into Colorado for a couple days, then on to Wisconsin to get some cookies! And see my new grandson, then on up to get some Maine lobsta.
Just mounted my Bridgestone Turanza 195/65/16 on my 99 GL1500 today. Have @ 1/8" to drive shaft side of swingarm @ 41lbs. Have to repair my alternator before I head out, leaking oil from seal behind the drive flange :eek:4: and change the oil. Have to go p/u a darkside front tire tomorrow and mount it. Where do I get them COOKIES? & number/decal?????:excited:

Every year we ride from WV to Rhode Isl. for the weekend to eat all you can eat lobster at the Nordic Lodge. I would also be interested in hearing about this festival.
