Somerset reservoir is on my list for both riding and kayaking.
Ha ha.. Back in the early '00s I would do an annual ride around the state with some older friends who were all ex racers and trained riders but well into their 50's . Mostly on big Beemers but a few had sport bikes. After leaf season but before snow the trips were great , but we (they) rode like A-holes. No speed limit ,or passing zone was honored. But Man was it fun, and riding behind trained riders really ups your game.Watch for speed traps on approach to the Champlain bridge! Last time thru I got warned by headlight flashes- boy the state popo were there and waiting.
I'm going to shoot for this ride with my Dad this year.
There are actually 2 distinctly different "Puppy Dog " Rides ..the classic and the current .. They run close to a few state parks and 100's of stealth camping..ALSO the MABRdiscovery route runs thru VT.. BUT didnt do that .. The puppy dog.. I did on my 2005 1200 GS and then my 2018 GSA ..98% great one or 2 spots where it was up on the pegs and Don't let off on the throttle.. BUT LOTS OF FUN.. took us 3 days and if memory is still there 360 + - miles go to the site and download the rides and see which one works for you and DadI'm going to shoot for this ride with my Dad this year.
edit, to follow up there a lot of options for camping? stealth or campground?
