It was a perfect day for a Dream Ride from our dealer, Harley-Davidson of NYC, to Connecticut to support the Special Olympics through the 14th annual Dream Ride.
About 20 NYC HOG members and 6 guests left Harley-Davidson of NYC at 9 a.m. to ride up to Danbury Harley-Davidson in Connecticut. We had to ride 70 miles in 90 minutes, so it was a little bit of a race to be there on time. It was a beautiful day for a ride with sunshine and temperatures in the 70s and we arrived at the mid-point for the ride, Harley-Davidson of Danbury.

NYC Ladies of Harley are on the road again.
On August 9 a group of women NYC HOG members and a guest headed out to Bear Mountain. The re-emergence of Ladies of Harley in NYC was welcomed by Autumn, Rose, Cheryl and Kim.
Cruising up the scenic Palisades Parkway to a favorite destination the women enjoyed a great ride and a picnic at the top of Perkins Drive on Bear Mt.
Enjoying the sights and cooling our heels.
Autumn at the overlook.
Connecticut River Ride
Head Road Captain Hans led 18 bikes for a great ride through scenic Connecticut on August 10.
NYC HOG members and their guests rode out from our breakfast meeting place, The Buccaneer Diner, celebrating the perfect weather for a long, leisurely day.
Dipping down into the cool tree-covered roads that wind around the lumbering Housatonic River on US Route 7, the group logged 250 miles.
Midway was the a great time for a delicious lunch break at The Cookhouse in New Milford, Connecticut for some lip-smacking barbecue.
Thanks for the great ride! See you next Sunday.

NYC HOG’s ride to Rhinebeck
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.
We had a good time checking out the British cars, a few antique bikes and antique cars.
There were antique planes in the hangers and of course the planes that put on a show for us.
It was a really nice day with good friends and just hanging out.
Thanks to Carlos for tail-gunning for me and all the photos he took.
