'17 eastern Long Island rides

Figured I'd do a new thread for '17 for our participants.............

my first of the season, a solo trip, planning for Wednesday. Just may do Montauk Point... with Astro Pizza in Amagansett for lunch on the return. Early spring runs out there are nice, traffic sparse prior to the summer onslaught.
If anyone interested and able to join, get in contact.

Stoked.....hopefully we'll all get out on a weekend very soon.

Today's rain is a good thing--wash off whatever left over salt there is on the road. Weekend's looking decent as well! ::fingers crossed::

Lol I think I'm okay. Just fell in love with snowboarding lol

AFA break in goes I'm just under 900 miles. Last time I rode was in January I think. I'm hoping to be ready by the end of next week.

I picked up another sony camera and set it up (on top of my helmet) so I can motovlog but not sure if I will. Will at least get better audio (less to no wind noise) I hope.
Have to figure out some nice angles to mount the other one.

How you been? All set with your gopro?

very busy here, for a retired bum

I'll dope my way through the GoPro intricacies, screw up again and again and learn it eventually. Have yet to mount it to my Bell helmet.

Actual warm weather upcoming in weather forecasts! Ducati is ready, I'm still screwin' around with the VFR.

We'll get out there soon!
