NYC HOG’s ride to Rhinebeck

DSC_5576


Sunday was a comfortable day as ten bikes pulled out of the Buccaneer Diner parking lot. Cool to warm temperatures with just enough clouds to block the sun from beating down on us. We headed up to Rhinebeck, NY to the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome a nice leisurely ride up the Taconic State Parkway, with a break each way in the middle for a drink and gas.

So come to the Buccaneer Diner on Astoria Blvd and 94th Street at 8am with a full tank of gas and your E-ZPass have a good breakfast the we will ride.

Project LiveWire Arrives!

harley-davidson-electric

Time_magazine_logoWill this battery-powered hog help the famed cyclemaker grow beyond aging boomers?

 @bilsap
… The electric Harley sitting on a small test track behind the company’s development center in Wauwatosa, outside Milwaukee, isn’t going to be confused with some of the putt-putt electrics on the market today. The design of LiveWire is gnarly enough to be Harley: it’s angular and agile, with a cast-aluminum exoskeleton sitting on a short wheelbase with 18-in. tires. The tires are a little bigger than normal and the seat a little higher, so the cycle can more easily jump curbs and handle the potholes of New Delhi or New York City. The turn signals and rear lamp are glowing LEDs, like those found on high-end Audis. What’s missing is the steroidal engine sitting under the rider–replaced by a lithium-ion-battery-powered motor.  Read more

Be sure to join us June 22nd for a good ride to the Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh, NY. It’s a cool place. Plan for it..

The owner of Motorcyclepedia has collected one Indian from every year they were produced, starting with 1901. There’s so much it’s hard to see everything in one day.
