Planning a Trip to Western Connecticut

Labor Day weekend is coming! I’m going to visit my long lost best friend from college who lives in the Danbury area. In addition to catching up on old times with my bud I’m doing some preride recon for our HOG Fall 2008 peeper trip. I hope everyone knows what a peeper is. I know Joker, Ann, Big D, Crusty, Rippin Kitten and Doorman will all know.

In addition to the AAA map and my trusty HOG Touring Handbook I am using the following resources:

Moto Maps Connecticut & Rhode Island: If you have been reading my blog for awhile you know I like these little handy dandy maps of scenic day rides published by the New Hampshire based Moto Maps. There is a 129 mile 4 hour loop covering western Connecticut that will provide the basis for the scenic portion of my HOG Fall Peeper trip in October. Youcan purchase Moto-maps through my online store at or Click here for more information on this Moto Map.

Motorcycle Journeys Through New England: Whitehorse Press publishes a series of motorcycle touring books. Obviously this is the New England book. It has three loops in the Berkshires. I think I will combine the Southern Berkshire loop with the Moto Map route. Click here for more information on this book.
