It’s taken 105 days but I finally made it to corner #4 in Madawaska Maine! I had started Friday the 26th early( 0400) with “Mr Twisted”Erik Stephens,the founder and CEO of Twisted Throttle as we headed up Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park to be the first in the US to watch the sunrise.Unfortunately it was cloudy but it was a perfect time to try out our LED’s. Erik was on his Twisted Throttle LED demo R-1200GS with every light Twisted Throttle makes, while I have Cyclops LED headlights and 3000 lumen light bar. We didn’t have any issues getting there 😉
After our goodbyes , Erik headed back to Rhode Island while I got back on US 1 to Fort Kent Maine. It’s the start ( or end depending on your POV) of US highway 1. If you remember back on July 24th, I was in Key West Florida at mile marker zero of US 1. Well now I’m at the other end. I crossed it a few times on my way north, I’ll have to admit the last few hundred miles in Maine are a lot more scenic then the first few in Florida, a LOT cooler also 😉
I also looked down at my odometer while in Ft Kent and saw that I had just reached 60,000 miles on my 2012 Super Tenere!
After my stop was well documented 😉 I headed the 20 miles north to Madawaska and the reason I was there in the 1st place. There is a really cool park dedicated to the riders that make the journey. It’s called “Four Corners Park”
I think that dirty smile shows it all……
