Last minute Port Jervis ride

All, Just throwing this out there - My buddy called me and said he wanted to take his bike out one more time before he shuts her down for the winter.

I suggested Erie Hotel Port Jervis NY - lunch - for a nice ride through warwick etc.

Meeting by me sunday Nov 25th @ 10am, the Erie does not open kitchen until 11:30 So maybe BS here for a half an hour then head up there, should take about an hour to get to Erie Hotel.

I will check this thread this evening - if we get a few riders good - if not - ok.... the place has good food and I like the atmosphere - going to be cool, maybe ill wear my heat.

Kenny

Welp, I can cover your gas and lunch if ya want to come, just hope 14cents makes it to my house....

We will be going over the mountain past the drive in to 94, then to CR1 i think it is, maybe part of 6 i know it by heart but dont know the road #'s or names.

Like I said if you come here i can fill your bike up with some gas I just bought and ill cover your lunch.... your call.

We meet at 10:00am here.

Oh and if you REALLY feel like you need to pay me back, then you can work the splitter next weekend while I shove logs on to it.

Hope you change your mind.

They had an American IPA too, but after what amounted to like 2 glasses of wine with the 18% one I decided to have a coke haha.

I didn't see this until now but couldn't have made it anyway. I was out ridin dirty on Sunday though. I don't know why I still convince myself that "I'm just going out to start the bike, get the oil hot and keep the battery charged." There hasn't been a single time I've done that and NOT gone for a ride. I went around the loop (up on the highway, off the first exit, and back into the back of my condo development), put the kick stand down, put gloves on, and went back out for an hour and a half. LOL!!! It was a little chilly but that's what gear is for.

Glad you had a good ride man, easy on the 18 percenters huh? LOL!!

Hey, speaking of IPAs, how has no one started a beer thread yet - especially in Autumn/Winter?
