Kim (Skiman) and I rode up to the NER meet and Greet in West Boylston.  80 degrees and sunny there, a good day for a ride.  We got there just about as Glenn(Mossyrocks) was leaving.

I took the VFR up there with no sidecases mounted for the first time, bike did give me better than 60 mpg for a relatively slow ride on secondary roads.

Funny, but we did take turns in the lead, and made as good a pace as we could with traffic that was heavier than expected.  We also had some fun on stretches that we did have to ourselves.

Actually, Barry pointed out all the wrong turns that someone made during a test route to the meet and greet :moon: ;)

Bring your bike and your appetite to the Twisted Throttle Factory Store on Thursday, June 25, 5-8 pm, for free hot dogs and a chance to test your skills. Beat our service guru, John Ryan, in our King of the Hill Slow Race, and you'll win a Free Oil Change in our service center. Make it into the top five competitors, and you'll win a free t-shirt.

To speed things up, we're holding a Hot Dog Eating Contest, too. Each participant will get five dogs, and whoever eats them the fastest - and holds them down - takes the prize: a Kryptonite Disc Lock! All participants will get a Twisted Throttle hat just for playing.

You got the right bike for it!  How's the Guzzi treating you?  Got any new pics?  Is that a V7 II?

Guzzi treating me just fine.  Currently in winter storage up at Hamlin Cycles.

She's a 2015 V7 Stone that has been highy modified into a "Guzzi ST".  I choose the 2015 V7 vs the V7II as I loved the 2015 Red vs the V7II Red
