New England meet-ups

Post by mtrdrms » Fri Jan 12, 2018 11:44 am

Hey everyone. If anyone else would be interested, I think it would be cool to meet up once a month or so at different locations around New England. I'm in CT and I know there must be some other riders within riding distance to a cool place to eat on a Saturday or Sunday morning!
I would suggest toymakers cafe in falls village CT. I'm willing to travel for sure and wouls like a good excuse to visit your neck of the woods. Maybe, say, the first weekend of every month? As many or as few can make it? Whaddyathink?

Andy, seems like a good idea not sure how feasible on Urals. :? New England bigger than outsiders think, the center's in Maine :)
The ME/NH crew have regular rides/campouts. :moto:

The Ural's made Maine a much bigger state.

I hear that. What if we make the meet ups in different areas so at least local uralistas can ride together? I dont mind traveling and I'm thinking with the dealerships popping up around, there may be more willing participants. I love Maine! Have some family in millinocket and there is some killer riding up there as you know....

I am in MA about 22 miles south of Boston and 115 miles east of you in CT. It is a big area but have a trailer and willing to travel. Started getting more comfortable with my riding by the end of last fall and really looking forward to this riding season. My wife also has a niece not far from Hartford that we owe a visit to. If you guys set something up, please be sure to post.

I'm game at the chance to meet some people in my area of central NH. Only time I see any others is at UralNE event and an occasional one or two during Bike Week.

I'm in Springfield, MA. Getting my feet wet on riding so it will be great to meet up when it's not arctic cold. Heading to West Springfield next weekend to the Motorcycle show. Ural of NE says they will be there.

I'm sure there is, I been through there many times with my car, and it's not that far if I make a camping trip out of it once the weather gets a little warmer.

Great. Ft Dummer state park is a nice place to camp. No hookups if I remember right but hot showers. We will certainly plan something when the weather warms up!

I seen that video, it helped me when I was trying to decide if I wanted to get one of these unique bikes. Surprised I didn't go looking for that road last summer since it is pretty much in my backyard. I'm still pretty new to the Ural world and don't know where all the cool rides are yet.
