    I think I met that guy in Sundown on Peekamoose at one of the trail heads this summer. He was wearing the same pants. Different bike though.

    Hey, some of us in that photo are still around, if not very actively posting here. The blond and the brunette to be specific. We'll see you there, again. I've lost count. Maybe 10 times?

    2009 it was 19 degrees, and the roads were just getting cleared of the snow. The Isle of Manhattan went off like clockwork!

    Us Citibeemers will be there with our yellow vests!

    Waffles! Ha!

    We plan on arriving around 10:15am and hope to ride at 11, with Skull if he's there.

    Please join us!

    I'll be leaving the BMWs at home and riding my Honda Grom. I just hope those BMWs will wait for me on the West Side Highway.

    That's why I only ride in the early morning hours around NYC.
    And New Year’s day, of course.
    Not much traffic, early, even on a holiday:

    I was going to try to make this with one of my scooters, but I'm snowed in.
