NJ, Saturday, 5/4, Mixed Surface Ride

Going to Hermy's Open House. Good sale prices and that thing that's said you can't get-- a free lunch

Kickstands up at 10:30 from the Citgo gas station at the intersection of Frenchtown Road (aka 519) and Bridge Street in Milford

Was a spectacular tasting "supper" of 4 hours of incredible Pa twisties and dirt. Great job, Walter, and great job everyone who was on the ride, for making it relatively painless to keep the group together.

Here are a couple of photos:

The NY Metro Dirt drop site:


The open house at Hermy's:


And the best part....FREE LUNCH (pulled pork and fantastic baked beans!)

Apart from some sweet roads and spring vistas about the best looking thing I saw all day was this Charger when we stopped for gas. Anyone else gawk at it?

Great ride today folks

The weather was sure nice. No complaints except that my pants cuffs got a little dusty

We had 8 riders and 7 bikes to start, 2 BMWs, 1 KLR, 4 KTMS.



Left Milford on the cyan route to hook up to the green route (which I did from Belvidere a couple years ago). Returned via the magenta.




Brian had to head back to try to find his phone (any luck?) which he lost along the route.

As Barry mentioned, we stopped en route to drop a duck



Lunch was good, and we were soon back on the road. But first-- the latest in high quality tank protection worthy to be used on such a fine piece of German engineering. Obviously only the finest Corinthian leather will do, as well as high quality Scotch brand painters tape

Forgot to mention that the 4 hours of endless twisties and dirt had some VERY interesting sections of fresh, deep gravel, which is always fun, and some very interesting downhill, descending radius dirt and gravel turns that definitely got your attention. And little traffic. And 70 degree weather. And did I mention "Free Lunch"?

Walter, you won't believe this, but your ride yesterday was More Fun then Tagging!!!!!

Looking at your route going out to Hermy's once you went up over Smith Gap road on down into Palmerton you went right past my house.

The wife said she had seen a couple Big KTM's along with a couple other bikes go past the house. Now we know the rest of the story.
