I live in Fairfield county ct. My friends and I have just finished up our builds and want to do a run. Camping, beers, whatever just trying to get some miles on these things and meet some other people willing to ride. I'm thinking late July a ride from lower ct area up to vt. If anyone has any interest I'll actually try and organize something. Cheers!

Thanks man! It's going to RULE in '15! We're already in the planning stages and have some awesome ideas. And the Live Free and Ride Run will be fucking insane. Planning a private location so we can party as we please, and the best part, HELMET FREE RIDING! Northern New England hasn't seen anything like what we're planning.

Let's get back to doing shit in New England that's fun...

Spring plans...

Early run in the offing...

North Shore is on that...let you know how that shakes out

Annual Late Spring Run (WPR2/1812/RLAT style)

HXC4 is in August and in PVD (urban music and motorcycle festival? maybe...)

Then the Sept. there's the bigguns (Gypsy/BRKLYN/TROG)

the answer after this whole summer of riding is yes... there is plenty of shit to do in new england, I had a hard time trying to find the time to make most events. next years top picks will be Strang Days, Herding Cats, Gypsy and the fucking time of my life was TROG.

Medic - what's the make/model/ year ?

Hows it going. My bike is a 92 HD EVO with edlebrock performer heads on a soft tail chopper frame. I picked the bike up for a song from a guy who never road it and I scooped it up pretty quick on the real cheap. Yes it is a fat tire bike but I love it and it has been my lil brother for the last couple of years. If you look at some of my other bikes this is a departure but a sweet one. It started out as Big Dog roller. I scrapped the electrical the bars, wheels, controls, starter and other stuff. I like having an air ride so I need to make a relay switch for it. My old chop ran on points with only four wires for the whole bike but this one needs a bit more. Also been tracking down a leak behind my primary that has been little to no problem. I figured since its on the lift I should replace all the gaskets and o-rings and that seal. I usually just hang around and do what I can when I can. The shop is tough to heat right now but I got a remedy for that. Plus the bars in that room.

Pretty sure we got a completely different spring/summer itinerary. Keene is May 4th. That's a not to miss swap. There's the MRMC annual spring run up in VT end of June. Strange Days ain't New England but it ain't really a journey to get their either. If you like British bikes, the Larz Anderson European Bike show shouldn't be missed...HXC4 is in Providence this year...should be more details on that shortly...Rice-O-Rama is rad as fuck...

My goal is to have my FXR ready by the Keene NH swap meet weekend, with (at least) two of us riding over.
Fingers crossed that mud season will be over by then and I can make it out to the tarmac.

My FXR story up to now.
(AIA for the lousy pics)

I traded a (unbuildable) half acre of inherited land in Gilmanton NH for a '78 Chrysler Cordoba w/400ci and T-tops.

I traded the car for this '90 H-D FXLR (24Kmi.) w/Mikuni42, AndrewsEV27 Cam and unknown brand straight pipes.

Not really my style and I was unsure of my direction until I removed the front fender and changed bars.

Now I'm putting on a bobtail w/sissy bar and some sidecovers from Outlaw Cycle Products and a different headlight (stock). Fender is being painted now. It's starting to take shape.

Hey all. If any of you are interested a couple buddies and I will be leaving White River Jct V.t and going around Maine May 30th till June 3rd then we are planning on hitting up L.A.M.B and finishing the week out with that group. Hit me up if you want to punish your body for 8/9 days. To be honest this is very fly by the seat of your pants, no real plans other then route and very budget minded. Looking to spend maybe one night at a campground in Bar Harbor other then that its prob gonna be find a trail and camp. What better way to kick off the summer then a trip around Maine and then L.A.M.B?

This coming Friday some friends and I will be leaving CT for The Race Of Gentlemen. If you have not been, your really missing out on probably the coolest thing within driving distance this area has to offer in one of the shittiest towns this place has to offer. Around 10 am Friday were heading out and there is no good way to get to wildwood, nj. So the ride will be around 65-75 mph on some pretty shitty roads. But its all worth it for the fake palm trees and pre world war cars and bikes racing on the beach. There will be a chase truck. message me if you want to join.

I ride a '80 FXWG shovel...... in fact it's pretty fucking nice right now and snow is not too far around the corner so I think I'm going to get off my phone and go for a spin. Catch y'all later!

Yeah I rode the 120mi round trip from Easton to get some miles on my new belt primary. Stayed for 10mins, got my fill of black t-shirts and ear lobe expanders, grabbed a t-shirt from my bro's booth (Lanesplitter) then hit the road.

The BBQBIKER rides hard, fast, far and free...I can't be standing around a hot parking lot staring at shit...the road is calling...they shoulda just given me the can of shitty PBR for best bike as as soon as I pulled in...but thats just me being humble.

I do hit Carls Diner in Oxford for an ultimate breakfast cholesterol jam-down it's a nice 60 mile ride for me...then hit the nice roads in that area..Rt 56/31/12 are nice...I usually ride alone because no one can keep up with me...both speed and distance..but again, thats just me being modest. Tattoo will be along to say it's because I'm a monumental pompous braggart ass.......again he's not the best judge of character...you know..he likes to tip the bottle if ya know what I mean.....

I know there is google but what is a "Deadbeat Retreat" ? Sounds like summer camp for people behind on their child support.

The BBQBIKER is always down for a 300 mile ride for a beer..........or one of my favorites is to hit all 6 New England states in a single day.........a big 15 hour 600 mile circle.........now thats a good day of riding.......emphasis on RIDING

Deadbeat retreat is a party/camp out in Acton Maine put on by Deadbeat Customs and some other people. Iron Tails saloon across the street from the campgrounds puts on an all day party and a bonfire at night. Its like $30, should be fun, lets hope I get my bike put back together in time.
