2013 Classic Triples Rally
My Legend has gone into winter storage, the New York City motorcycle show is two months away, and I am desperate for a motorcycle fix of some kind, so how about we start thinking about next summer's classic triples rally? Usually, we suggest some new locations as the first step, and that would be fine, but I propose we add a second option this year, based entirely upon our experiences in West Virginia last summer. Specifically, I have never seen riding as good as it was in West Virginia, with curvy roads with good surface conditions, no law enforcement that we saw, and superb lodging that was cheaper than camping. Okay, the food wasn't great, but this time we could cook our own breakfasts together at the cabin each morning, and then maybe do a bit more research for better eats. The place we stopped the day we flew east on the new interstate was great food, but I can't remember the name. The ride back on the old highway was unforgettable, however! That was some great technical stuff! (Mufasa rode like he had a hornet under his saddle!)
If you want some new territory, Mufasa and I rode some great roads south of the finger lakes on our way down to West Virginia, and we have also done lots of Catskill mountain roads. Lots of quiet and beautiful country there, but the road conditions are not even close to the perfect tarmac in West Virginia. Still, it would be a good place for a rally, although scenic riding would be the priority over spirited technical stuff.
Okay, time to start chewing this over.
