Northern NJ, tri-state area

Fall has arrived and the scenery will soon be ripe for riding and taking photos.
I am in the Morris/Passaic area and am curious if there are any other Vulcan riders in the area. I think it would be nice to set up a weekend ride and share the scenery with others in northern NJ.

I would love to hear from anyone interested.

I'm about an hour from you over in Clinton. Looks like New Providence is about equidistant. Ever ride in that direction or do you head East to the water?

@Liberty Pilot......I usually take local rides in the Morris county area, mostly because I can never seem to get any of my friends together at the same time
This time of year I head north or west mostly for the mountain roads and scenery. I was hoping to find a group of people to set up a Sunday ride with.

I'm in. I was out for a ride this Saturday. It was only about an hour but I was out none-the-less. Another member here, Ron and I have been trying to get a ride together for a while. It might be easier when the weather relaxes it's grip a bit. If you're headed out, hit me up. My home e-mail is [email protected] but it comes directly to my phone so I'll get it. Maybe you me and Ron can take a ride sometime.

I know it has been a while....but it's that time of year again and looking to ride. Just had a POOGS issue and bike was getting harder to start when hot. I cleaned out the gas vent and set the gap on the stator, so ready to give it a whirl and see if the bike will behave now. Anyone know of any good places to ride for a day trip this fall?

We have had a NJ Group get together and ride from Clinton area to Hot Dog Johnny's and back around Round Valley earlier this year. I am down by Princeton and looking for a Sunday ride most weekends. Give a PM shout or just post here a few days in advance.

Morris plains rider

Sunday riding buddies are what I need too! I am in Morris Plains and cant really get out of my driveway without a GPS so just letting you know I wont be great at knowing where to ride but will say I am always willing to go.

hey Wolfie....how did you make out with the bike? are you up and running yet?

I did some mods and overdue maintenance on my bike and am ready to ride whenever you all are......

Of coarse trying to get a group together is always a challenge, so let's hear from everyone on suggestions for dates for an upcoming possible get together.
