Have a good spin tomorrow guys, I've got a full weekend ahead so cannot attend. I would second a Hampton beach ride at some point. There is an epic shop in York Maine just up the road and I have friends there as well.
Last night's forecast was sooo good .I'm still going unless it's a downpour on the way up.
CYA at Bishop's

At what time did you guys get home last night?
Rat Rodding, is, if anything, the passionate act of creating something functional from an ostensible pile of rubble.
ya, that really was an epic ride. I had to peel myself away. I could'a stayed out all night.
The northern contingent showed up from NH (Brian, Dan and Dave):
then Matt showed up from Pittsfield and our first stop was The Old Watering Hole:
Which is also a beer can museum:
here's the excited bar keeper posing for a picture with us. She was not as impressed with Brian's chopper as the next bar tender would be:
so we decided to roll out to the bike trail. Brian on his springer chopper:
there's Dave on his cool Schwinn muscle bike with mags:
Matt muscling the Sixty Four (good thing I brought two bikes. His car broke down so he rode his motorcycle to this event and borrowed this bike):
Dan, Brian, Steve, Dave:
yes, the tallest (and happiest) man you'll probably ever find riding a 20" muscle bike:
Brian's better side: (wait, what?)
Steve Schwing-ing his way toward Easthampton, MA:
good shot of Dave and his hot rod Schwinn:
stopped at a skate park along the way:
Steve showing the youngsters how to Schwing around the pool and being filmed along the way by a boarder:
there's a couple of these cool bridges on the path:
epic photo - (l to r) Matt, Ian, Steve, Dan, Dave, Brian:
even more epic photo:
photo voted "Most in Need of a Caption" :
About three or four miles into the trail ride we started getting thirsty and hungry, so we asked a local 'bent rider "how much longer to Easthampton?"
He informed us there is a cool biker bar about 3 miles ahead. So we forged on:
all too common site here in New England:
in my head this photo was going to be more epic:
oddly the big lug looks more cramped on a 26" bike than he does on a 20" bike:
we made it to Easthampton!!! Whiskerz biker bar:
Brian the attention beep and his chopper. Ya whatever Brian, you're - so - great - blah, blah, blah... (I'm so building a chopper)
hey someone get Matt a Snickers, will you? He's not himself when he's hungry.
how about an Italian restaurant Matt?
no pictures of the 6 mile ride back to Noho because it was dark, but here we are at my fave bar in town - Tunnel Bar:
this just in from Matt's iphone.... yours truly, the day's official photographer:
cheers guys! great day/night. looking forward to next one.
As usual I am now kicking myself in the beep for missing out!
Great pics Ian
EPIC photos of Brians bike IN the bar!
Next time for sure!
CMAN "There is no such thing as spending time irresponsibly when it comes to bikes. "Honey will you take the garbage out?" (Sure that gives me at least 10-15 minutes in the garage with and excuse)
This night was just awesome. The weather was so sweet, I probably could have pulled an all nighter and slept on my trailer like a hobo. great times guys. Look forward to the next ride without a doubt.
Thanks Ian for all the pics and good luck to you my friend on you marriage...in just a few short days!!!
Great pics Ian! That was a blast. Too bad so many guys couldn't make it. Here are the few pics I took with my phone:
Here is Ian doing something. He complained nobody was taking his photo:
Just a few from the trail:
And these from the "How to Blackmale Brian" series:
And a parting shot before packing up:
