Heres what we're looking at so far:
8:30am: Meet at Rhodes Tavern, Sloatsburg, NY
9:30am: Start off on the Seven Lakes Drive through Bear Mountain State Park (will inevitably be stop-and-go - great scenary - lots of pull off points)
10:00am: Pass through Fahnstock State Park
10:15am: Head up Taconic State Parkway to Route 55
10:45am: Take route 55 through Poughkeepsie, across Hudson River, through New Paltz, and land at the Shawangunk Mountain Overlook.
11:30am: Depart Shawangunk Mountain and head west on 55 - passing the Roundout Reservoir
12:15pm: Get off 55 and head east on Route 17 and twist the wick!
1:00pm: Arrive at intersection of I-84 and Route 17 (Middletown, NY). Can depart ways from here.
Total time: ~4 hours (probably a little longer)
Total Distance: 155 miles of beautiful country (picture is attached below)
(There are tolls involved - if you have an E-Zpass, figure out how to mount it to your windshield. Best "mod" I ever did.)
Anyone who is interested, reply on the thread. I've traveled all of these roads before - beautiful time of year to travel em.
RAIN DELAY DATE will be the 9th.
Looking forward -
PS. Just installed Oxford Heaterz heated sport grips. If you've got an extra $80 laying around - get em. Just beware of stripping your bar end screws. Kawasaki didn't skimp on the Loc-tite.
