Ride Report:

Was myself, Merc and KC...the usual suspects, lol. Left my house just before 10am, and rode up thru Chester to Rt94 (freshly paved !), then up to Washingtonville. From there we hit Rt 208 and went up to 17k. Rode the 17k dragstrip to Montgomery to Mikey Teutel's Wolfgang Gallery. Well, Mikey was away working on a project, but we were greeted by his lovely and pleasant assistant. Checked out the paintings for awhile (was some nice stuff there), then headed back east again on 17k, only to find it closed. Hopped on I-84 for a spell and opened em up...gotta clean out the carbon sometimes. ya know...got off the very next exit, crossed 17k and stopped at PJD's...
...big sign...deliveries ONLY...windows all blacked out...so, we parked in front of the logo on the bldg and took pics anyway...I can hear Paulie now..."I bet my father sent them guys to spy on us"...lol...
So, a bit bummed out, we headed just down 17k a lil more to OCC...were lots of bikes outside. But man, inside ?...every show bike that was "donated", Sr must have bought back...maybe not all, and mebbe they made doubles of some, but the Dave Mann bike was there. Cant easily make a double of that. I thought that was given to Daves widow. But again, could be Sr just donated to her fav charity in lieu of the bike. Which is fine too. But really, that bike should be in Ted's Museum. Best custom paint Ive ever seen
And know how on the show Sr pushes the guys all the time..figure some wouldda been working Sat, least half a day...nope...shop was dark...only one bike on the lift, and that looked like a mod or repair...all that was left to see was $60 tee shirts...they even had OCC doggie jackets, lol.
So, we took some pics out front, and went on to Gully's. Now, for those who dont know the area, Gullys is a bar/restaurant at the end of Broadway in Newburgh. Right on the Hudson. Literally, ON THE HUDSON. It was an old river barge that was converted yrs ago. Last time I was there was 20-25 yrs ago, so its been there a long time. There's something to be said about longevity. Had a nice meal not 10 ft from the water (VERY reasonable prices too)...tried to get the waitress to sit on my lap to read me the menu (lost my glasses during the ride) but she wouldnt have nuthin to do with it, lol.
Left there and headed south to Cornwall, Rt 218. Told cameraman Merc to "roll em"...we headed up the mountain...lotta twisties with steep cliffs on one side, 200-300 ft dropoffs on the other...pulled into West Point, hooked onto 9w south and headed to Bear Mtn. Got onto Perkins Memorial, and snaked and spiraled our way up. Was full of tourists up on top (natch, a Sat), but we hung out for awhile, took a lotta pics, then headed back down...took some of the back twisties thru Harriman Park, and came back to my place.
Got a few cold frosties, and I made Wolfieburgers and a cuke salad...hung around a bit and shot the shat, then all headed to their respective dens.
Was exactly a 100 mile loop, nice day (sun was a lil scorching), and a good time was had by all. Merc took at least one vid, and around 200 pics, lol...they'll be up for viewing shortly.

I enjoyed the ride brother!! Thanks to brother Wolfie for yet another grand riding tour!!

there was lots of great scenery...as usual, and interesting places to visit. It was a beautiful day....if you like hot muggy sunshiny days...lol I got a good tan on my arms, and had a great day with Wolfie and Merc.....I suggest that next time Wolfie posts a ride, that you NY, NJ and close NORTHEAST guys join in. No BS, just good riding with great friends! And the Wolfieburgers were awesome!

Thanks Merc for taking photos and vids!....can't wait to see them :smiley_th

Great day guys, thanks for leading Wolfie. Pictures through the go pro are poor (scratched windshield), STILL uploading. ends up i have over 2gigs of pictures (I think I over did it)

will post links here and in the original ride post.

What the hell is in those wolfie burgers? I got home, pounded two waters, and cleaned my basement, mind you I have not even began to tackle the basement since the bathroom project ended (about a week ago) and I am already down to mopping stage (already put things away, vacuumed the throw carpet and swept the whole floor with sweeping compound) there is something in those things im tellin ya!

Great ride Guys, KC how did you like the other side of the lake? Where it got shady (east shore road) is where I like to crack it open and throw sparks from the floor boards, but decided against that for this evening.

Ken...That side of the lake is so much more open and almost no traffic! I could see myself taking that road and enjoying the longer route....thanks for showing me that way!

Please note that album has a sub album for the go pro camera.... from now on with the go pro i need to make it take less pictures or i need to do just a few highlight videos, It took so many pictures....

And here are some vids...

(after leaving Wolfies and we all were headed home, KC and I took the other side of the lake to get out...)
