I'll pm you about stopping by to grab the chair. I work close by.

Doing good here. On the generator for just over 24 hours before power was restored. No damage other than a few branches down.

yeah its basically a nightmare in the city, cable/internet has been restored today, i have limited power via generator but no heat. blackouts everywhere, gas lines in Yonkers and the rest of westchester. the Bronx didnt get hit to bad compared to the other boroughs which are a total nightmare. NJ is a complete disaster. im doing fine though, my home is still standing and my fam is fine.

Kev kept right up and passed you if you hesitated. Did you see his old school swept back handlebars? They look more like street cruiser bars than dirtbike bars. Years of practice will make up for any bike shortcomings, thats for sure. He said the carb was all messed up too. I think he will want another go at it before long.

Next year I'm goig to make separate threads for each CnR event, just so ya know. People need to see the info on post 1. In other words, stay tuned for the next one. Last weekend of the year, weather permitting. Try to reserve the dates. You won't regret bearing the elements for a great time. My rule of thumb is that the temps must get to about 40s daytime high or I won't do it.

I had a great time meeting and riding with you all! Thank you Rob for putting this all together! Having more people to ride with will make my stay on the east coast a lot more enjoyable! Coming from Utah, it has been a bit of an adjustment with how different the terrain is, how much less of it there is, and how regulated it is.

Our lil ride to get the cider from Clyde's was fun! I'm also very new to road riding, that was the longest I've ever ridden on Tarmac. Damn, I LOVED the winding corners and the grip, oh my goodness, the grip.

I'm now coming to terms with the fact that the road to trail ratio here is like 90% road and 10% trail, where Utah is 90% trail 10% road. Soooooo In order to take advantage of all that sweet grippy Tarmac I'm in the market for more street worthy machines!
