Short notice Shades of Death ride

A little late with this post, but…

Sunday before last looked like it might be one of the few good motorcycle days left in 2018. Plus, Halloween had been just 4 days prior, so S# and I made a split second decision to grant ourselves kitchen passes and go for a 2-hour ride on a road made famous by Weird NJ magazine. We set our GPSs to… Shades of Death Road:


It’s actually not spooky at all. Just a very nice curvy road through gentleman farmer country.

We ruined our familial reliability by stopping at a vintage electronics shop in… Hackettstown? to look at old Yamaha amps and pinball machines. This caused our two hour ride to stretch into three hours. Luckily, our wives are understanding and forgiving people!
