Rode up to Peekskill with some nice local guys and a couple of ladies as well. Thought this group would appreciate.

Looks like a lovely time was had, K!

My club (Jersey Shore Chaos Crew) had a ride Saturday, but since Melody is still "on vacay" at my dealer until later this week (I hope), I had to miss it. Still want to explore the roads up your way: I've ridden shotgun by car along many of them, and know just how nice they can be.

I had originally intended to go for that ride, but the commute to the starting point was well over an hour from me. -Too far to travel to "start" the trip. It was the right decision considering the crazy heat, but I do love the beauty of Monmouth County. -Some other time.

It's not bad up by me! Will we see you in Gotham one of these days? There was talk of a ride to Cold Spring, NY in a couple of weeks... Stay tuned!

Yes, you shall. When I'm back in the saddle at week's end–fingers crossed–I'll be making the rounds twice-weekly for my tech gigs. And, as mentioned before, I want to sneak in a day-trip upstate: it might be a bit of a stretch, but there are some roads just South (and a bit North) of Troy I'd love to get zippy on. No promises on that front, though.

From March: Manhattan's UWS, filling up at the gas station I knew as a kid.

Yes! Hugging the Henry Hudson Parkway…which is a lot rougher than I remember it.

After the Fill-up: Melody-on-the-Hudson (NY side), just before the ride to the other side.

I was on this ride with my 63 Lambretta. Good time, with a pretty impressive turnout.

Hey, nice ride indeed. Did you go over Bear Mountain Bridge?

On the way home, we went our separate ways. I took the Bear Mountain Bridge then, but not on the way up.

Brendan, I was sorry to miss an up close viewing of your Lambretta! Such beautiful machines. Maybe I'll catch you at the next one?
