finally a decent saturday to ride
« on: April 14, 2018, 06:47:18 AM »

Got the bike home from winter storage so time to get her on the road for a good shake down.

looking to head out for a good breakfast, probably try the Blue Highway Cafe (around 9am-ish) up on RT 81 for a start then just head up the river to Haadam.

Hope everyone has a good and safe riding day.

Sure was a nice day yesterday. Went out for a photo tag, a hot dog and then kick tires at the Guzzi dealer before blasting home.

Iíve always loved the look of the guzzi and have lusted for one but....with just one dealer now at the opposite end of the state and one in Rhode Island, makes no sense to own one....at least in my mind.

Mark,

Did you go to the dealer in Bethel or the one in Rhode Island?

We had previous plans for yesterday so I did not get the chance to ride.

Good time!

Up to Colebrook, NH Sat.  Thru Dixville Notch.  Saw my first Moose, f@*#in' HUGE and too close!  Then 16 south, 110A & 110 west before the Kanc.  Great weather.

I went to Upstate NY this past Sat.  In the car with the wife...

But I did go to the Flat track races at Weedsport Speedway.
My first live motorcycle race and a great time it was.

They'll be in PA in Sept. & NJ in Oct. if you're interested.

If the weather is good Sat July 28, Skiman and I are considering a day ride.  Destination not yet set, but food will be involved.

That's really cool. Even I remember the days when I went for a long ride with my fiance and he proposed to me on a mountain for marriage.
However, it is the time of my kids and I gifted my elder son a motorbike on his 18th birthday and looking for insurance quotes here (LINK REMOVED) However, the rise in the prices of fuel and with the family coverage, it becomes hard to enjoy such activities these days.

I saw more Guzzis than any other non-bmw. A bunch of V7s!  Spoke to a guy who rode 2-up from Ontario. Stelvios & Californiaís, too.
