Any LT riders near Cornwall NY?

Hello. I am the proud owner of a new LT and I have been reading the forums here and have found them to be unbelievably useful! Thanks to all who take the time to share your knowledge.

My wife and I have been riding the new bike for about two months and have found it to be just great. I am curious if there are any LT riders near Cornwall NY. There are alot of great mountain roads around here and West Point and it would be fun to have a few buddies to go riding with from time to time.

Cheers and ride safe!

You might want to put a copy of this post in the Northeast section, there are a couple guys "around" the area who I'm sure you can catch up with. There's always a lot of interest in the Western edge of CT/MA/VT with a lot of guys going up Rt. 22.
WELCOME ABOARD!

I am up in the Albany Area. If you head up this way, let me know. I ride year round - anything above 35 degrees and no snow.

Thanks for the responses. Don't know how many more times I'm going to get the big guy on the road again this season, but when I do I will give you a heads up and maybe we can get together. My set point seems to be around 45 degrees. Lower than that and I miss shift too often from my legs shaking!

Ride safe!

My break-point is at about 40, although I just brought a new (for me) 'LT from down South, via Carolinas, Virginia and PA at mid-thirties. Too bundled up for comfort, though (8 layers including electric vest and suit liner); I hate to be so restricted.

The real break-point is, however, all the salt on the road. And we already have that, the guys in Passaic and Rockland are eager beavers.

So, see you next year.

Too bad, I just missed you. I lived in Tomkins Cove up until September. Great country up there.

If you ride in the winter, be careful of one thing. They spray some kind of liquid on the steep sections of mountain roads the day before a snowstorm is expected. Evidently it keeps the snow from sticking. It can also cause you to spin out in a turn. Don't ask me how I know.

Regards,

Hi and welcome. I'm relatively new to the LT also (this summer). I'm in northern NJ and I enjoy riding in your area to get away from the craziness around here. About 45 deg. is also my lower comfort limit since I don't own electric gear. I can sometimes tolerate colder, but even when its 40, (or even higher I'm told) those mountain roads can still hide some ice in the parts that are always in the shade, and that would ruin my day! I'm also not a big fan of road salt. I'd suggest you post a wake-up call to us in the spring and see if we can get a group ride out. I'd also not mind if you send me a private email. Maybe we should use the "northeast" section for our ride info.

Ride safe

Just checking in on the board. Sure am getting spring fever. Can't wait to fire up the big guy as soon as the weather cooperates. As soon as it does, I'll give you all a post and maybe we can get together. Stay warm and keep the rubber to the road!

I reside in South Jersey and just purchased my 06 LT in November of last year. Can't wait to use up some vacation days soon for 3 day weekends. My wife and I plan on some NY trips and maybe you can show us the sights of the area.

Hey now!


I could not stay out of this thread. I ride above 32F but I have been known to be out on 17F. Central Jersey here, so I am looking forward to take the bike out on a long ride soon.

Planning ride to Maine July 4-8, 2007

My wife and I are planning to take off to the Maine area from Cornwall, NY probably leaving July 4th, but may wait til the 5th. This will be our first overnight. Anyone with suggestions on routes or want to join us somewhere, please post it here or email me at [email protected] and let me know. Sorry for the late notice!

I would also like to arrange a day tour of the Cornwall area (Bear Mountain) with a group from this area. The weekend of July 21 would be cool for me. Anyone interested?

Hi Profesor and wife!

You may wish to try it too before your trip.
Where are you planning to go?
