    Camping or motel? On the fence, seems like a baggers & pirates (HD) scene; or more ADV? You've done it?
    Thanks,

    This year the overnight will be at Pine Lake, NY. This is about 20 miles from the closest area with major Ho/Motel's. Camping will be the more convenient choice this year.

    It's a self guided route, lots of hd and cruisers but a lot sport touring guys as well. You can ride it at whatever pace you and your particular group wishes, the routes are always very good and pretty well laid out, this is a must do for all of you paved riders though don't be surprised if you stumble on a dirt road or two.

    Ive been twice. Good time & well organized! Mostly baggers but plenty of Adv and S-T types, too. Gonna try for a threepeat this year. Highly recommended.

    I'm pretty familiar with the overnight area but can't figure out the overnight location.

    I bet the ride north will be well worth it!

    RedPower told me about this ride tonight and I'd like to go but it looks like the only way to register is to mail a check in?:huh
    I don't think I OWN any checks....
    Is there any online registration at all? I checked their website but didn't turn up much.

    or you can pay $48 in person on the day of the ride.

    Ramapo MC is very much Old School. so checks sent via snail mail or cash in person it is. They are a great group but it would greatly benefit them to join us all in this century. Paypal works wonders....
