Sunday, July 7....9am at Wolfies in Greenwood Lake (PM for directions). Orange County NY backroads to Sam's Point Preserve by Ellenville, then Sullivan County backroads to Rts 42 and 97 and the infamous Hawks Nest. Lunch in Port Jervis, NY....possible swimming in Stokes State Forest (bring trunks or skinny dip), or a ride up to Sunrise Mountain....then ending the ride at Gyps Tavern on Rt 206 in Branchville, NJ (Dinner, or whatever)....

Folks can "peel off" anytime they need to if they have plans......

Glad to hear you will be making it on Sunday. So far I am in also and my buddy with the turbo charged diesel powered trike is coming along. We have "maybe's" from a few other friends we ride with on Sunday mornings. I hope some more forum members see the posted ride and join such as Liberty Pilot, Mike DeAngelo, Ole Dirty Doc and those from the Clinton meet up.

I am meeting my trike buddy at 7:00 AM and then we are heading to KC's to arrive by 8:00 AM. After a short chill there we will head north to meet up with the main portion of the group at 9:00 AM in NY and hit the road for a nice relaxing ride. I figure another 250 mile day or there about. I am almost ready. I have to put a few water bottles in the freezer and get the mini cooler out. Should be an extra hot one and now I wish I had bought that mesh jacket when it was on sale. No way I will be wearing the leather even with the vents open.

I am glad that Mercury has his ride all settled and is joining us and KC is back from his family time. I'll see everyone in the morning.

Will be hot, yes...but once we get up to Sullivan will be almost 10 deg cooler...less humid tomorrow too....and if it gets REALLY hot, we're gonna be following springfed streams most of the way....I know one spot that the water never gets over 45-50......Im bringin my swimmin trunks...I still need to find my mini tripod for group pics....

That didnt sound right, did it ?...sounds like the skinny dippin scene from that "Wild Hogs" movie, lol....(oh please god, dont let John Travolta be there !)....

And I cant wait to see that trike !!!!

Sounds all very gay to me!!!
Not really but your comment about it being gay sure sounds like jealousy. Have you been watching a certain scene from Deliverance once too many times? lol

We had a little 'drag', just for fun, I have no idea what the dance was at the end, it was what I felt like doing at the time.

Don't mind the go pro noise clicks and pops, it does that when adjusting camera or going over rocks etc.

Thanks all who came, I had a great day, I think we all did!

thanks for posting Merc.....it was a great ride and I had a lot of fun.

Thanks to Tom and Bill for coming along. We left my house at 8am. For me it was a 13 hour day on the bike and I logged just over 200 miles with 2 downpours in the mix...ending with driving home in a thunderstorm at 9pm....but it was a great day and I really enjoyed it!

I really wish others would join us next time....I guarantee you will have fun and make new friends and memories!
