RATS in upstate

Well I used to be in Plattsburgh, NY, how's that for upstate? I was actually the one who started a RAT Pack in Maine in 2001, I then moved to Plattsburgh, and worked with the Dealer (Franks) in Essex, VT to form a RAT pack up there in 2003. The RAT Pack out of Franks is very good and very active. They have plans to ride almost every weekend. The Pack leader is Mark Bock. He has done a great job in growing the pack. I have since moved back to Maine and am now back in the Street Cycles RAT Pack (Dirigo RAT Pack). And working with Maine European Motorcycle Enthusiasts.

One of you guys chimed in and said Destiny RAT Pack was the closest. I think thats right. For you guys over in the middle part of NY. But at Franks Rat pack we had folks as far south as the Lake George and we also had folks in the very southern part of VT. They are out there.

Come on up to the 8th MeMe event at Sunday River next weekend.

Destiny

Well, last time i went into Destiny out of Syracuse, i heard it's RAT kinda fell apart or at least hasnt been active for a while... not confirmed... But I work crazy shifts and it hard to plan way ahead, but if any wants to meet up i am up for it. I went and setup auto -email for this forum so i will get a quick response. Any ideas just post here and we should all be able to see.

I'm in Syracuse area.

Let's do an Adirondack trip. (Any trip is great) other ideas?

Meet at a location good for all interested and plan a ride.

I'm in... and would be willing to help a couple other guys with planning.

I got my bike at Destiny, a potential meeting spot? Maybe we can get this thing organized, would be fun.

Watertown area roads

NewOldSkool in Watertown,

I'll be riding my Speed Triple from Charlotte, NC in mid-July to the Worth/Lorraine area to visit my family. Any roads in the area I should be sure to ride on? Any twisties to speak of? I should know since I grew up there but I never rode a motorcycle there?

It sounds like there is no active pack in the area but do you see a lot of Triumphs there?

Bob
