Come kick off the riding season with fellow riders. Meet other riders, talk motorcycles, and have some quality hot dogs.

There is plenty of pavement parking and some dirt parking as well so bring a kick stand plate just in case. We will have indoor seating for 50+ and if its nice you can sit outside.

We look forward to seeing you.

Beautiful day!

Many thanks for the tip, epconde! It was a beautiful day to be out riding. I met two other Wee owners (one '09, one '12), and I counted two or three others. Great roads, great ice cream.

I'm so glad that you were able to make it. As far as I'm concerned, Stroms are the best bang for the buck in motorcycling. Come see us again: http://www.newenglandriders.org/

Great to see the big Strom turnout. We had 150 riders in all.

The Ice Cream Ride was a smashing success. 75 bikes were divided up into many groups by pace. As a result, it seemed like a small ride with a few friend - until all the groups arrived at the end for ice cream and all the bikes were parked together!

Thanks to all who stopped by. It seems that the secret of our friendly group is out after being featured in RIDER Magazine.

I had a blast!

Admittedly, I was fully expecting a s-l-o-w ride through the countryside so, hedging my bets, I signed up for the quick group and was rewarded with being second in line behind Ed on his ST. I had SO much fun trailing Ed and a younger fellow on his Ninja that I'm still grinning. S-l-o-w? NOT! Fun, fun, FUN! YES! And I thought I knew all the great roads in central Mass. Ed has educated me!

A great group of folks on all sort of different bikes. Only wish it could've lasted longer. Made a few connections and looking for more.

Hobbyist - Were you riding the orange-ish gold Wee? Regret that I didn't meet you.

No, I was the black Wee in group 2. There was a copper Wee riding sweep in our group, though I'm too awful with names to remember.

I see the link to the August Adirondack rally in your sig, so it looks like we'll have another chance to meet this year. I'll have to make a point of watching for MA plates.
