“Tail of the Possum” NJ
« on: May 23, 2021, 01:05:25 PM »
100 miles, 2 curves.  Took the Ambo today.  Beautiful weather, if not a little too hot.  Started at a famous hot dog stand in Chatsworth, NJ. - “Hot Diggity Dog”.

‘71 Ambo with all the police bits.  Hard to imagine the motor cops chasing anybody down on those things back in the day!

 They would turn into 650 Triumphs when more speed was necessary  :shocked:

Win Big! Ride that beauty to the National, Cam.

BTW: Is there enough amber on that Ambo? Are you making enough power to ride at night? Ride a parade?

Looking forward to the big deal in Keene, NH, w/Taylor Pork Roll.  Good fortune,  R3~

Taking the V85 to the National Bud, that’s my pack mule. And it has brakes.   The Ambo has the alternator upgrade and LED head and tail lights.  Plenty of juice.

"Tail of the Possum?!??"

Andy is NOT impressed.  He says if you have found his tail, he wants it back....

Possum could be way ahead of other pets if their tails didn't look like entrails.   R3~

"Pork Roll"?

Oh, you mean "Taylor Ham", as in "Taylor ham, egg and cheese, SPK please."

We got my now 14 year old black lab puppy from a lady on Main st. in Chatsworth. Tail of the possum, eh? There's some sort of decent uncrowded roads in that area, but all too short--

Yes Dan, that’s the place.  Lots of cranberry bogs nearby.  There’s a big “Cranberry Festival” in Chatsworth every October. 

Tail of the Possum is pretty much the opposite of the famed Tail of the Dragon.  Still, a nice part of south Jersey.  Thousands of acres of Pine Barrens.  Ocean, rivers and lakes.

Cool, my wife is from  Millville NJ and familiar with the area. She says thanks for posting and reminding her how much she missed home sometime. I don’t know why when she can live in the south with me😂😂😂😂
