    Looking for some long island riders on this forum. Recently bought a 2004 r1150rs from north carolina. I took a bus down and rode the bike back up. 1st day about 200 miles on interstate and another 125 on the blue ridge parkway (didn't wanna pass that road without riding at least some of it). 2nd day 500 miles on interstates, LIE etc and rode thru holland and midtown tunnels. I would like to meet up with some members here and possible do an overnighter to new hampshire and back. I don't know how things are done here but just throwing it out there. I would like to go out east on LI and take a ferry out of greenport than find a few really good roads, visit my brother in law, cruise around and back whichever way. What is a good way to map out really good motorcycle roads? By the way 1st bike for me and lovin it.:D Thanks Jeff

    Welcome from a fellow long islander! My wife & I ride with a few other couples, usually Sat Or Sun mornings 75-100 mile rides as we are still getting the women used to it. I like a little dual sport ride in the woods also & always looking for any one interested to check out some new trails. Do you ride by your self ? We are looking at doing some overnight trips into Ct & up to the Catskills, alot of nice roads there. I will let you know what we have planned as we come to some decisions.

    Keep me posted I may be interested. It all varies. The more notice the better. I believe I will be needing new tires pretty soon. Just getting my feet wet so to speak.I'm located in suffolk county. Jeff
