I've been meaning to say that this looks like the TW200 of sailboats.
I bet it will be a blast to sail.
Enjoy!!!!

saw two TW200's rolling through Woodland Park today, husband and wife. Not nearly as distinguished as the Tripps however. Finally got to see the inside of the house today.. the renters were a bit tough on it.. but their security deposit will take care of most of the damage. I am still a month away from being able to ride,, leg feels OK, but I wouldnt want to plant it in the ground anytime soon. Hope all is well back in RI.. I actually miss the place

You old retired guys need to take it easy....you just don't heal up as fast as us working stiffs.
And the next time you start missing Rhode Island, you should shut the bathroom door, run the shower, and point a hair dryer at your face.
A few minutes of that will bring you back to your senses.

CAMP AND RIDE GUYS,

COME AND HELP US HAVE AN A #1 EVENT!

We are all set with the banquet hall afterwards... din din with 100+ of your dirt bike buddies.. with a bar!
Tell the wife you'll be eating after the event! Sweet barbacued chicken, potato salad and salad... I ordered enough for 150 so no shortages this year!

Had a good time on the big bike ride last year. But I think you're kidding about the chicken....

Our first attempt with a roll chart was not a resounding success...Interesting ride though...we liked the gas line and found some quite challenging routes off of Pole Bridge Rd.
We should have had a warning when we got lost driving there this morning, and missed everyone else at the start.

Thanks motogo1 for putting it together!


Awesome, for hanging in there on a couple TW200s!! I saw you make a wrong turn at the country store, but wasn't sure what you had planned. I can't believe you rode the whole thing!! A REAL adventure on those bikes..

Devils Hopyard, CT camp-n-ride next weekend is potentially still an option but I'm leaning away from it currently..

With Somers being the same weekend and the limited interest in a Devils Hopyard CnR (LIlolita and now Mr. Hazard) I'd rather hold off and plan something later in the summer/fall when there wasn't a scheduling conflict and I didn't wait till the last minute to make actual plans..

Even if there's not a Devils Hopyard C-n-R it's rather unlikely I'll make it up to Somers so I should be up for some local to me riding the Sunday of Brit Jam if that's something you'd be interested in.. Perhaps a few hours riding from 9-10am until 1-2pm when we arrive at Brit Jam and hang there for a few hours?

Yeah sorry 'bout the chicken last year.. I ordered for 115 riders and we had 130 plus the club workers. I bumped it up to 150 so everybody can get their bellies full for the ride home.

I THINK WE'LL START THE DINNER AT 2PM, THATS 5 HOURS OF SEAT TIME FOR BOTH IF YOU GET OFF AT A REASONABLE TIME AND GET'R DONE...
