Fall Foliage #2, not on a Ural, Nov. 5, 2020

No organized Fall Foliage tours or runs scheduled because of COVID. Took down an old route sheet that’s been hanging on my garage wall for years. From a 2016 Spring Dice Run put together by the Ramapo Motorcycle Club. Met a couple of friends at Rhodes North Tavern, typical launch or termination spot for many rides in the beautiful mountains and countryside of the area. We had a nice 200+ mile fast paced day in the almost 75 degree weather (in November no less).

Black and purple bunting was tucked around the Taverns sign. We found out that the owner & proprietor Cornelius Tyler Rhodes had passed on a few days before.
Tyler was a huge supporter of motorcycling and welcomed anyone with 2 or 3 wheels to great food and drink at the Tavern. I’ve met and started numerous Ural rides from Rhodes over the years.

On Saturdays & Sundays his main parking lot was reserved for motorcycle parking only during the daytime and he would often be seen directing folks to a good spot to park their bikes. He’d also slow down and sometimes stop traffic on fast paced Rt. 17 to make sure you could get safely back on the road.
He will be missed.
Appreciate this 2nd time around route sheet by the RMC and dedicate the video to Tyler Rhodes:

Yep, that's exactly what it means.
Serious motorcycling in that area but no gang colors. Not that type of place.

Nice video! My ole’stompin’ grounds! I rode around allot of that area on my XS650C. Thanks for sharing this! By the way, “Bike gangs” Isn’t correct terminology, it’s, ”Bike clubs” When describing 1% clubs. Peace...

Yeah Marty, knew you would recognize a lot of the area/region. I'll do the same hard-copy route again with the Ural sometime now that I've transferred the info to GPX files on my Garmin. Just a little bit slower which is not a bad thing, haha.
Hey, stay safe, healthy and enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday.
