Roar to the Shore Wildwood, NJ 9/6 - 9/9

The Roar to the Shore bike rally is coming up in Wildwood, New Jersey very soon. It is one of the larger gatherings in the Northeast. It runs from Thursday, Sept. 6 to Sunday, Sept. 9. Several members have expressed interest in being there at least for one day if not all. If anyone is interested in getting together while down there for a ride or whatever let me know and we can exchange some information and make some loose plans for now. There should be a large number of vendors and events the entire time and for anyone that has never gone to a rally of this size it is a great experience within minimal riding distance for many. I believe the four or five day ride to Sturgis or a trip to Daytona may hold some people back from attending those bigger events. See the website: www.roartotheshoreonline.com for more information about the daily events. Last year was my first time attending this one and I had a great time. I hope we can get some more riders there and enjoy some riding time and good times.

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.

I'm going to try my best to go but won't make any guarantees. I get back from a week in Paris that Friday, 7-Sept. I'm just not sure a 3 hour ride and crazy jet lag is a safe combination. It sucks too because I have a place down there right in North Wildwood...

I understand as I spent time in France last year and actually enjoyed it beyond what I am willing to admit to the wife and my daughter. I just got back from Costa Rica last week and that was a good time although they are about to go into their rainy season starting in September. We had rain but still had time to do plenty of things like sea kayaking, zip lining, eco tour with a monkey or a sloth in every other tree. In between the lizards and iguanas were running around so you always had to be looking down and up where ever you were walking plus the huge spiders were about eye level so that added to the whole thing. I even found a scorpion running around at our condo. With all of that it was still a fantastic time.

You have my cell number so give me a call when the time comes and let me know if you can make it or not. It would be fun to some forum members together for a group ride on the main street of Wildwood as most other groups do. We'll get a picture of that to post it here too.

Give me a shout when you are back from France.

My trailer fits 2, but its loaded with crap right now..... Sept 6th is so far away for me to be thinking about, I just got done with the bathroom, now I moved to outside work, fire wood and yard work - backhoe digging etc... I got my new windshield and the bike is about to become flat black but I have to make time for that.

If you all go - have a blast - I just can't commit.... seems I am more busy then I thought.

Well years ago New Jersey was finally able to get New York to stop dumping their garbage off of the barges at Staten Island and the Arthur Kill so there is minimal medical waste now. I agree that it took too long to correct that problem but the reality is that New York did not want to do anything about what they were allowing to go into the water and it took some real convincing for them to see the light. I guess they were just used to things being a mess like in parts of NYC and could not see the problem.
