Enter on Mt Easter Rd off W Cornwall Rd or go up Swaller Hill Rd off Rt 7

The roads up there are nice. I've never been on any of the snowmobile trails...

The Mini and the BMW car dealerships there are factory owned stores.

There used to be a small family business in Thornwood that sold BMW bikes and vintage Triumph parts. BMW pushed them to expand, the owner told them the market wasn't there. So they pulled his franchise and built a huge factory store in White Plains. First at the BMW car dealership, then a huge freestanding shop across the street. It failed, miserably.

I guess they're going to try it again.

Love those Germans - "The Stalingrad Mentality" is what we non-Krauts called it at BMW N.A.

sorry we didn't get there in time to see you race Mr. K61. Looks like you had excellent (if dusty) conditions. I have to imagine if that course is wet its a lot more work.

I wanted to take the SE on a loop after the race was over but they weren't too keen on the idea...
