yeah a little late but never-the-less. So, being a Triumph guy up until last year (well, I am still a triumph guy, but I have a Guzzi now too), I have been on some rides with Triumph folks, and I have done a bit of m/c camping as well (Nova Scotia) but I have never actually been to a "rally". Sad, I know. so anyway, the opportunity came up, and seeing as my g/f lives in western NY, how could I not go? It sounded at first like there would be a big group from New England going, so I thought that'd be cool, but it just didn't work out. I got the Norge all packed up and hit the Pike to cover some ground west. Turned south at the Taconic Parkway and stopped for a drink of water and a look around cruised through the Catskills (sorry no pics I was having too much fun) and made it to the Microtel in Bath, NY. In the meantime Michelle was getting ready to head to Bath from Elma. route plan to Westfield ready to roll rolling down the highway hmm.. somewhat lost the route setting up drinking heavily! breakfast the next day, bacon butties & coffee the scene all in all a very cool time. the people were super nice, with Joe & Michelle (Joe's Michelle) making everyone feel at home. I met John from Ohio with a silver Norge, and Phil from Ontario with a Quota, and a bunch of other cool folks. We plan on hitting the rally again next year for sure!
