Great time in the City!
NEW YORK – A beautiful sunny day set the tone for the New York City HOG ride on April 12 to celebrate with our dealer at the Harley-Davidson of NYC store in Manhattan.
Harley-Davidson of NYC is unique because it has TWO stores under in the dealership. The main store in Long Island City, Queens — and the new location in Manhattan.
NYC HOG members rode out to attend the first open house for the store in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood.
The two-story showroom features a dynamic Glass Bike Lift suspended from the ceiling and much more, including some of the sexiest bikes built today.
NYC HOG was happy to explore the new showroom and celebrate spring with Harley lovers of all ages!
Yes, we start them really young around here…
Treat them well…
And keep them for life!
A big thanks to Harley-Davidson of NYC for the hospitality, food, and giveaways!
Wishing everyone great success with the new venture.
And thanks to all the NYC HOG members who turned out!

If you want to ride over together, meet us in Manhattan at 12:30 at 14th Street and Avenue C near the ConEd plant. KSU at 1pm sharp for the ride to the Harley-Davidson of NYC dealership in Tribeca.
Enough of this!
More than 56 inches of snow fell in New York City this winter. That’s more than four feet, eight inches of frozen white stuff that keep me and many New Yorkers bundled up inside. Hopefully your bike was well protected from the cold and all that horrible, corrosive salt used to melt the snow.
So as most of us prepare for what looks to be another great riding season, it’s good to make sure your bike is as ready for the road as you are. And yes, I know many of you hardy NYC HOG members have been riding for weeks already!
Here’s a springtime checklist:
As you know, gasoline is combustible. That’s the whole point of using it. Hopefully you added a stabilizer to your fuel if you were not riding. After a winter of sitting many of the combustible elements may have evaporated. Also check for moisture in your tank or signs of rust. Refill your tank with premium gasoline before you start it.
If your bike has not been on a trickle charger and you haven’t been riding much of the winter, your battery may need immediate attention. Before trying to charge it, clean any corrosion off of the terminals with a wire brush. If you don’t have a solid-state lithium battery, you’ll need to top off the cells with distilled water. Then if it won’t take a charge, it’s likely dead and you need to buy a new one.
These are the small (normally) bits of rubber that your life depends on. Check your tires to see if any flat spots have developed from sitting for a long time. No doubt your tires will need air after the winter months. Then give them a good look over to see how much tread is left. You definitely don’t want to skimp on tires or make them last “just a bit longer.”
Make sure your chain and sprockets are still in good condition and your chain tightened to the right tension.
5. Oil & Filter
This may be a good time to change your oil and filter if you didn’t before storing your bike for the winer.
6. Brake Fluid
If you can’t flush your brakes yourself, at least top off fluids in the master cylinder. Be sure to use the same type of brake fluid as before. No mixing different types!
Make sure your cables are connected; your hand and foot controls functioning.
Do you have coolant? The only thing my vintage 1974 Sportster knows about coolant is a strong wind rushing by. But if you have coolant, you may want to flush that too and refill.
Check your bulbs and headlamp. Are they working and is your headlamp in line? My ’74 Sportster’s lamp always ends up out of line after hitting a few potholes around here.
It’s a good time to check your helmet and make sure it has no cracks and the straps are not worn or frayed.
11. Spit Shine
I believe a clean bike runs better. Maybe I just feel better on a clean bike, but I like to think my Harley loves being clean.
12. Idle Before You Go
Start your bike and let it idle a bit before revving the engine.
And in this modern technology world – there are more items to check. Is your GPS working? How about your headset and mike? Do you have your favorite tunes ready to rock? Is your smartphone charged? Yes? Ok, sounds as if you’re ready to roll. Wait, speaking of sound…
If you ride in NYC you will need one! Make sure it’s working. Ride safe. See you soon!
Ciao for now!

Hello NYC HOG
With all the rain today its hard to believe that yesterday about 16 of us pulled out of the diner parking lot on a picture perfect day, no humidity, comfortable
I was a nice leisurely hundred mile ride to the Rhinebeck air show, we
stopped half way there for a drink and some gas. The last couple of miles were on a
packed dirt road but it took us right there. They were very nice to us because there
were so many of us they even gave us five dollars off the admission price, only fifteen
dollars to get in.
There were lots of antique planes there to see, starting from the Wright Bros. type plane up to World War II small planes. there also were antique cars and
motorcycles. then at 2pm the air and ground show started, it was very interesting to see these
old planes and cars in action. the oldest plane was from 1911 it actually got off the
ground. the show lasted till about 4pm, some left a little early, the rest of us saddled up at 4.
We had another leisurely hundred mile ride home stopped for gas and a drink.
It was a great day and the best no traffic.
The next email I forward will be some great pictures taken by Ed Metro of
I had a great day I hope everyone else did.
