The Obligatory Early Season First Ride to Bear Mountain

This is the ride we all take about this time of year and always hope it will be warmer but it never is...

The weather is looking good! Maybe just a touch on the cool side

This has become the biggest turnout we've ever had in any single meetup so far. Just get to State Line safely. We should assess if it is safe to travel as one large group or divide up into a few subgroups based on bikes and riding styles. We may need a few group leaders and sweeps. We'll figure it out over coffee at State Line.  See you all Saturday!   :o)

    Great Ride Dave, I broke off on the way to Rockwell. My right hand started to lose feeling due to the cold. I guess your right about the Cold, 60 sounds a lot warmer. It was nice meeting new guys and old friends.

    Hey folks, I'm new to the group. Any idea how long the ride will last? I'd really like to go on the first one of the season, but I have some commitments in the city later in the day.

    The bad news: sorry to report I'm going to have to pull out of this ride. The good news: it's because I'll be riding around Palm Springs on a rented motorcycle. (The other bad news: I asked for a Triumph Bonneville but will probably end up on a Harley. The good news: a Harley is still a motorcycle!)

    April 8, 2013

  • Roy L.

    anyone leaving from manhattan that wants to meet up?

    February 19, 2013

    • Noah F.

    Dave, I'm not sure if you thought about lunch, but Rhodes wouldn't be a bad idea if we wanted to grab some food. It wouldn't be a bad ride from Bear Mountain. Just a thought.

    April 4, 2013

    • Christopher B.

      Dave, I'm up for anything. I usually eat on the heathy side, so that's fine with me.

      April 6, 2013

  • Christopher B.

    The countdown is on fellas, one week to go. Lets hope for weather just as good or better.

    April 6, 2013

  • Christopher B.

    I'm looking forward to this, I'm hoping for some decent weather. I'm leaning towards taking the Speed Triple.

    March 31, 2013

    ok, almost finished my rebuild (new Frame is all), the engine worked beautifully when removed from the old frame, recent rebuild etc... but now she wont run, i did get her started but only 1 cyclinder running, anyone near City Island fancy a lobster dinner if they can help me get her going again, can't be much, as i said she was recently rebuild and all i've done is swap out the frame ?
