Smile Passing through

Jack, I believe I recall dining and then riding with you and Jackpiner57 in June 2007.

I am on the same motorcycle, and it has carried me a long long way.

I expect to be in New England in late April, but not for scenery or visits.
I have chosen a very eastern route to reach Ontario Canada,
avoiding Manhattan but using a ferry to reach Rhode Island.

I did meet Barry a few years ago, and had a wonderful time on MDI.

So yeah, some of us are still getting around.
Best wishes for an early spring!
Keith

hello everyone. I was driving thru Shagticoke the other day and went by John Sassitellis home ( unsure if he still lives there? ) Anyway got thinking about some of the rides we all went on. My life got busy and I kinda lost track of everyone but Tom Davies..
So now I'm spending the winter prepping my 2014 1K and wishing for warmer weather...

I'm okay, jack, down 145 pounds since weight loss surgery almost two years ago. I have a total knee replacement in about 6 weeks, it kept me off the bike except for 200 miles last year. I've got a 2012 DL650, it needs a lot more miles put on it!

Think I rode with you guys in 08 when we camped in the Adirondacks. It was a rainy weekend and I remember we moved out the picnic tables and camped in the pavilion at the campground. I was a Strom noob then, having had my Wee for 2 months, and it was a great learning experience!

still here, not riding at the moment as much as I would like to get some snowstorm riding in, charging system is broken yet again, also need new "winter tires" 4 seasons on my front studded knobby and 3 full years on my darkside winter rear, both while still have legal tread depth are not adequate for winter conditions anymore
