Dunno, never been to one....but since the Warwick one is gonna end up at Murphy's Tavern in GWL, you best bet there'll prolly be a few hundred ! Expect a few outlaws as well.
If y'all wanna come, we can meet up at my house and ride over together (8mi from here). Good time to gas up too. Lemme know.

Was ok today...met up with MattMan (member here) from Tuxedo with his VN750, and Id say there was around 100 bikes. Escorted the whole way by 2 Warwick bike cops and a few patrol cars at critical intersections. My only gripe was that it was a lil disorganized (first year though), and there were some obviously new riders in the middle of the pack which caused gaps (not a good thing when a group is riding thru intersections). They shouldda been at the rear. Other than that, was cool, and I made it back to my house on reserve with the needle barely reading ! Lol. (didnt start with a full tank).

I planned on going, but got suckered into working on the in-laws house.
but today is a gorgeous day! I am looking to ride....just need a destination...lol

I may wind up in Tuxedo NY again just admiring the scenery and enjoying the mountain roads today. I tend to just drive and wind up wherever the road takes me.

This is what Daniel Meyer calls "holistic navigation".

Well the first post had some good advice but I guess you forgot to take it into consideration yourself. You lucked out. The last place you want to run out of gas is while you are riding in a large pack. I think it is mandatory for each and everyone to get on your case even just a little. I'm glad you made it back home safe.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

And sounds like something Neil Cassidy would do !

And V2000...yeah, would have topped off, but only had 20 cents left to my name. Lil over a half a tank, so figured I was ok.
Whats nice too, is that the sponsoring club, The Shamrocks MC, always have a tender truck following the group "in case"...

Was a great time, and wish more of you locals couldda made it. Mebbe next year.
