Ladies and Gents,
New Year's eve here with about 6 inches of new snow. What better time to start planning the 3rd Annual Ride of the Beemer Biker Dudes?
Jerome, Fred, here's hoping we can get you back into the fold in 09.
Spiros, you are way over due to join this ride. Barney and Wilma (Fred still doesn't know), we sure hope to see you again. There's a bunch of "2-timers" I hope will make it in 09; you folks know who you are.
Last year we targeted early June. So let's throw June 5,6,7 out there and see what kind of feedback we get.
Newcomers, welcome! The tradtion of the "Beemer Biker Dudes" will be explained in time, but Ride Vermont is a guided ride of some of the nicest motorcycle roads Vermont has to offer. I seek out new pavement, the sweetest sweepers, and time tested twisties for a spirited, throttle up, ride through the hills and valleys. To steal a phase, "Scenery... what scenery?".
Last year's ride was based at the Gray Ghost Inn in Dover, Vermont and was well represented by two-up riders on LTs. Other brands are welcome, (who'd of known that a sweet Texas lady from Maine could keep the pace on a HD?), but this is primarily a BMW ride. Spinedr, you still piloting a GT?
(The only folks not welcome are the loud pipe crowd, we think you are rude.)
So, please let the dialogue begin. Gray Ghost is okay? First weekend in June okay? Hey, you've got six months to get your priorities in order.
Happy New Year, ya'll.
("Ya'll".... that's southern talk from the Deep South of Vermont.)
