Day 2

Forgot to charge the camera batteries, so this will be short...

Check in station:


Note the red GS for later reference:









8888 miles


Emergency vehicles that responded to take care of an injured rider (the red GS):







Puddle nap that bent brake pedal all the way back to the peg:


Second nap due to my dumba$$ failure to fully deploy kickstand - but it gave better access to bend the brake pedal back to a working condition:

Attention to the Red 650GS

Ok, I will admit it, I am the rider of the red G650GS as well as the one that required all the emergency vehicles. I didn't realize they sent that many people ! And, I was that close to the end of the "rough road"?!!? The bike is fine, just a few new tattoos and I survived with minimal damage. As the Dr. said "good news is nothing is broken, bad news is you are going to hurt like hell for the next few days" I hate people who point out the obvious with glee!Ok the worst is they cut off the wonderfully neon coat. Oh well, just received the new one so, back to Wolvern I go to conquer! Thank you to everyone who asked about my "crash". Also, thank you to Wayne County Motorcycle for making sure my bike got home and put on such a great ride. Look for me in the Fall (not "falling", the season!)

AdventureRN - I'm glad to hear you are okay. I spoke to you breifly before the ride - complemented your beautiful red GS. Too bad about the jacket - I was admiring that too! It was still on and in one piece when the emergency responders waived us past. I have a photo of you next to your bike before the ride. PM me if you want a copy.

I'm on the far right in this photo:

Good pictures. Thanks for posting them up. The wife and I took the Gear Up out in the area yesterday and found some rougher trails.

Just found your post. Thanks for the pics of the Bultaco Matador - that made my day! I'm really glad to see one still around and being ridden. Looks like a great, all-inclusive ride. Thanks.

Sounds like fun! The Gear Up is an awesome rig - it must be a blast on the trails, and it probably doesn't fall over in puddles as easily as my ride. You are lucky to be where you are - the area is great for riding. It's hard to believe there are so many miles of unpaved roads and trails in upstate NY.

Thanks! The ride is a blast because it is all-inclusive - especially the variety of bikes, new and vintage. It is really cool seeing the vintage bikes being ridden the way they were meant to be ridden...
