Here is the date for the fun ride in Manhattan this Fall. Hopefully it is not too cold, but even it is we should not have any problem warming up on those trails and I will heat up the shop to warm up in between.

Please post if you are planning on attending as we will have some food for all to eat so that we have more time to play.

This ride is for everybody but especially for the younger kids that want to have a safe environment to learn. There is different level of difficulties on the trails so everybody should find something at his/her level.

If you want to see what it is all about, here are the links to the previous ones:

I'd like to attend but I will be in southern Italy on a rented Ducati Scrambler touring (all pavement -- drat!) on Oct. 7th. I'm over 75 so I cannot rent a car in Europe anymore. However, the bureaucrats that make these rules forgot about motorcycles so a bike it is!

It will be next time Stu! Maybe just bring over your new 500 before you go and I make sure I'll break it in for you ;-)

Now the only question is...will my old 1999 KTM 300EXC be ready to ride by then?! It is currently going through a metamorphosis at an undisclosed location. :-o 8-)

...and Luc? Is your little girl riding already?! Holy smokes!

I plan to come, and bringing my daughter with her Honda 110. A friend has offered to let us borrow his Yamaha 110. I will bring it if someone speaks up to say they would use it.

Awesome,

so here is who we have so far, speak up if you are not listed below so we can have enough to eat:

Savage & Family -- 4
Troy & Rachel -- 2
Mann cubs & 2 family -- 14?
Safiri, friend & Lars -- 3

This will be fun, the flood cleared up some of the trails and made others more challenging :-)
