Adirondack Rally II

#1 Unread post by BRUMBEAR » Sun Jan 20, 2013 8:59 pm

Due to an overwhelmingly positive response to last year's event, We will be organizing a shindig for this spring as well! It seemed that everyone had a excellent time and was happy with the overall format last year, so we're not going to be changing hardly anything. The only real notable change is that we'll be sure to post up where the dinner meet up will be for both Friday and Saturday night - we felt bad that some people showed up Saturday evening last year and were unable to find anyone because we hadn't posted up the plans anywhere.

Also, a few people had discussed possibly extending the event into the week leading up (something like a Wed-Sun thing), and spending the first couple days in Northern VT before heading down to the Lake George region for Friday evening. Brumbear nor I will be involved in any of the planning for that as it's unlikely that either of us will be able to attend, but I will post any info on that here and on my website so that anyone who wishes to attend that portion can easily find that info.

Be sure to bookmark my webpage as I'll be keeping all of the pertinent info there: http://www.allseasonrider.com/adk-buell-rally.html

Most people, including myself, will be staying at the Fort William Henry. It's a little more expensive, but it's the easiest. http://www.fortwilliamhenry.com/

This was a great event last year and I hope to see a lot of those who came to make the trip again, as well some new faces. Here's the link to last years thread for anyone that's interested: http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/37/ 666388.html?1357328980

This is some stuff to do if your with the family and not on your machine or the family is in need of something to do while you are!!!
The Rally is family friendly folks you will enjoy the area I can almost guaranty it we can't control the weather but it's usually fair this time of year up there. Nights are cool and bonfires are somewhat frowned upon in the local establishments.

Good news I called Frost Valley YMCA on the clarryville road he said the road is open all the way from 55 to 28 although the sign says it is closed, He did say the road was washed out in a couple spots but passable I am in for it worse comes to worse I'll build a bridge Seriously though he said the road is passable so we will get a little of the off road feel at the very least.

Where to begin, first off the guys that made the trip were all really great this year, the group was not as big as last year but a great time was to be had!!!!
The trip up actually saw a combined 9 machines, with 2 being Anthony and Nick and 2 guys from advrider good fella's those 4 rode up to hunter and turned for home. We picked up Froggy and Baf in Hunter and shot out 23A to 23 and up 30 to Lake Sacandaga and across to Lake George an epic ride truly beautiful. we then got up Sat. and made 2 groups and headed out we had a problem at the end of lake George Froggy blew the belt on his CR Mike got pics of the whole thing!!! Baf then went and got his car and drove Froggy to albany to get a new belt COOL DEAL BAF!!! Froggy had the CR towed back to Hotel. We then went on to lake placid I blew a turn and we actually passed right by the other group but VTpeg had a route and took the lead and we hit the best raod I ever seen NO "poo poo"!!!!! We all met on 73 by whiteface rode up together still some snow on the mountain and stickered everything in sight ;) On the way back from Whiteface to placid I fell short of a gas station by 1/4 mile and had to push it Thanks for the help Shane from XBboard and some kid named Cody who jumped out of a car and helped me push well they kinda went so fast I couldn't even keep up!!! Fueled and ready after a minor hissy fit we rode back down to the Northway and shot down where Mark and the guys took route 8 back. My head was pounding I dehydrated a little I guess so I ran straight back to FWH with big Dave. When we got back Froggy and Baf already had his CR ready to go!!! Sat night was real fun the guys were great and made Patrick feel like one of the crew we had fireworks and more stickers were attacked by Indians no shyt!!! oops the attack was Friday night.
Sun morn brought departure and everyone kinda split up and made there own way back. Mike and I ran a gorgeous but wet route back across to rt 30 and down to Margrettville, then east on 28 to the big Indian and over the clouds and down to 209 where we split up @ Wurtsboro I fell asleep last night @ about 8 completely exhausted and as happy as a kid on summer VACA!!!!!!!
Thanks to all for making this a weekend to remember forever
