Same reason people smoke, have unprotected sex eat whatever they want, watch TV all day...

Because it feels good now and they're adults who make their own decisions!

That duck has had more rides in tow trucks the some harleys. Must be some bad ju-ju in the air for you nick. Kill any babies in your previous life? Pull your plate too many times?

Hey guys, left to Newport, RI on Saturday morning, left NYC at 7:30am got to the Ferry at 9:20am in Orient Point, took the 10am ferry (first time) to New London, CT and and then rode to RI on US1. It was great, we had a blast in Newport, RI (fck Harley riders) but Newport was beautiful (first time). We had no issues and loved it. We didn't want to take 95 or deal with traffic leaving the city and this trip was as stress free as it ever could be.



The SV1000 did great, and I'm glad I bought the Corbin seat for my woman, she loved it. Anyway I hope you guys enjoyed the long weekend.

Now I need some hard cases...

If you didn't hit traffic on the island, that's a great way to go.

Thanks Rob, we left Newport at 4:30pm, got to the ferry by 5:30 (flew on 95 this time) and left at 6, we were back in the city by 10pm.

It won't be the last time we head over there, I will definitely be encouraging my riding buddies for a ride up there again before winter. Ill def check out that BBQ place.

We left early on Saturday so the traffic out was not bad, and once we hit Exit 39 everyone cleared out and it was just an open road. It was busy in Newport due to the holiday, but I just lane split the whole time and watched out for cops. We were planning on spending another day but decided to just head back and relax today.
