    My wife and I are thinking of coming, depending on how much seat time she gets on her rebel prior to the rally.

    Update from our fearless leader on the NS450:

    This weekend Vince, my neighbor Randy and myself did our 'after-winter' test run of the New Sweden 450, all I can say is "Winner, winner, chicken dinner"!

    Saturday's ride went through some incredibly beautiful areas, loads of nice sweepers, miles after miles with absolutely no stops, red lights or yields. Saturday's ride ends with a 'bang', last 13 miles are twistys.... which makes for a nice warmup for Sunday's ride!

    We also recommend that for lunch you stop at the Elias Cole restaurant (on the route) which our good friends at Backroads Magazine recommended. We stopped there and talked to the owner, they're gonna put up a welcome sign for NS450 riders, food was delicious. Homemade bread, I had a grilled chicken sandwich served with their homemade pesto aioli and macaroni salad.

    Our campground this year is a awesome, a huge covered outdoor patio area where the grilling and buffet will be served, indoor dining room to sit in and eat if you'd like, a nice big bar area w large screen tv's and a free pool table.

    We stayed in the Hancock House Hotel in Hancock NY this weekend and I highly recommend it for those that don't wanna camp. (And it's pretty close) Those that do want to stay at the campground , we are staying right on the east branch of the Delaware River where it's superior fishing. So good in fact, there was a fly fishing tournament held there this past weekend.

    If you haven't signed up, do it now; And get others, it'll be a great weekend on your bike. Tons of swag too. :-)!

    Your loyal servant,

    Phil
    President NSBMWR
