    Newbie from coastal Maine

    Hello everyone. Just joined the club. Having recently moved to Maine from Pennsylvania I bought a new R1200RT here this spring and spent all of my free time this summer checking out as many nooks and crannies along the coastline that I could. What a combination...a beemer and the Maine coastline!!!

    Welcome aboard! I am jealous, my Maine coast time is maxed at a week in August, if I'm really lucky add a couple days at Christmas

    Okay, so define coastal Maine -- it's something like 4,000 miles long!

    And to Ted, I get there 6 or 8 times a year. This was Thursday morning, about an hour after sunrise, the light was fantastic!

    Must be nice to be 3 hours away For me, from DC it is almost exactly 12 hours with stops at the Colony Diner for a 2am breakfast and then another great breakfast at the Miss Brunswick. Leave at 8pm, arrive at the ferry at 7:30 am just in time for the 8am ferry - longest 23 minutes of the trip!

    It looks like you already have a pretty good understanding and appreciation for the coast of Maine. Glad you posted your picture...now I don't have to use poetry in a vain attempt to describe it...ha-ha.

    Welcome...

    ralwhite.... You win! New RT & nearby the Maine coast. Priceless!

    Since others are revealing proximity; I'm only 1,077.7 miles from the
    north "outskirts" of Freeport. I've ridden every road along the coast
    with redlight's from there to Canada! But I've also turned down the path,
    not-less traveled there. So I know how lucky you are.
    And that character tommcgee does indeed have a pic or two;
    of the whole shoot'in match from Maine rock #1 to Meat Cove NS... all
    via the bike ride. Glad to have you aboard the club, ride well.
