On Saturday I rode the Skyride in Highland, NY. It involved using the Walkway over the Hudson.

https://walkway.org/

It's a refurbished Railway crossing over the Hudson River between Highland and Poughkeepsie. It's the first time motorcycles were allowed to do it and it attracted a huge crowd of around 1500 bikes. It proceeded from Poughkeepsie to the Motorcyclepedia museum in Newburgh. It was only a 75 mile day ride on the scooter but it was energizing. In the first video that's my scooter at the beginning. In the second video I show up at 30:28. It was an epic day.

I don't know. It took them ten years to finally get the permits and approvals. It was billed as a "Once in a lifetime event" so it might never happen again. Everyone is hoping it happens again.
