    The Yankee Beemers 20th Annual Damn Yankees Rally is happening August 7th thru 9th at the Heath Fairgrounds in Heath Mass.

    This year we are running a "Yankee Ingenuity" Magical Mystery Tour event, with the bonus locations being made available on July 19th at our monthly ride to eat breakfast meeting, and on our website there after. Ride the best roads in Vermont and the Berkshires, camp with us, enjoy a chicken BBW on Saturday night. Live music by Dana Lewis and Andy The Music Man.

    This is a great location with lots of off road and twisty pavement. Our mystery tour will have you taking pics of your bike in scenic mountains, eating at great little unknown restaurants, and seeing some of the coolest historic and modern marvels in the northeast.

    This being the 20th anniversary of the Damn Yankees Rally makes it extra special and there will be a lot of stuff to do and see. Our kitchen will have food, beverages and desserts for sale, the YB Store is there, bonfire, campfire jam sessions, and all the trappings of an old school bike rally.

    All bikes welcome, well behaved pets allowed, bring your guitar or harmonica or your spoons and come rock the silo with us!


    More info at http://www.YankeeBeemers.org

    The camping area is soft and grassy, there are hot showers, you can set your tent up in one of the animal pavillions (no sheep !) or out under the stars.

    Church lady pies while they last... RIDE FOR PIE


    Held at the Heath Fairgrounds, Heath Mass

    And let's not forget the Lime Rockz Rally at Lime Rocks Park in Lakeville, CT, Friday August 14th to Sunday August 16.
    There is nothing quite like camping on a bucolic race course. During the day there is a ton of action with sports car clubs, skid pad antics, access to pits and the wonderful sounds of internal combustion engines. If you prefer to ride the area, including New York is filled with great twisty fast roads and wonderful scenery. Ah, but the evenings are just the opposite where the camping is on fine grass with new bathrooms nearby, the park is surrounded by hills and you may be serenaded to sleep by the sound of coyotes...

    August 14-16, 2015 The Lime Rockz Rally, Lime Rock CT


    Ride, Camp, Eat and Kick tires with the YB's at Lime Rock Raceway -- ride the track!
    John Shields and Jack Phelps host the 4th annual YB Lime Rockz Rally!

    Camp out under a canopy of trees overlooking one of the most beautiful race courses in the East and arise to the hum of the Skip Barber Race Series Formula cars on the track.

Explore beautiful ribbons of asphalt in North Western Connecticut and across the border into New York state and the Catskills. Visit the new Motorcyclepedia museum in Newburgh, NY.
