Thanks everyone!

Another great Christmas Party at the Apple Hill Farm!


The President led us down another dirt road! A stop at the Cider Day Festival in New Salem while on our Polar Bear Ride.
It's nearly Halloween - so it must be time for a ride to Salem!

Thank you to the hospitality of the Salem Fire Department, their Chief David Cody, and their on-duty staff for assisting us with parking during our visit.

Making ourselves at home at SFD before venturing out to the historic city.

This town crier was searching for one of the accused witches as he had a warrant for her arrest. "Have you seen her, she is wearing a red bodice?"

One of the play actors turned to a RKMC member, wearing her red vest, and asked if she was one of them!

Picture perfect weather for this year's Apple Pie Festival in Dummerston,VT.

20 bikes from Mass-2 made the ride!

Up on a bridge at the Davis Farm Maze...
It took some help on the bridges and a little over two hours for us to find our way out! PHEW!

A stop for fresh seafood with a beautiful harbor view...

...and ice cream at Kimball's to round out the day!

A day with the Worcester Tornadoes...

Fantastic weather...

...and a great game with superb seats!

Thanks to our Road Captain, guide, and host as we enjoyed the route, the food, the fun, and the game!

  Off to Wells, Maine for a weekend with Marty and Cliff. It rained a little... (it rained a lot over night)
But we still had a lot of fun and got some riding in too.
There was time for the bikes...

Time for all sorts of excitement
(since it could have been any of the guys we'll keep his identity secret)

Time for food

And a lot of time for fun.


One of the arcades even had a Harley Ride

...faster Deb, FAASTER!

Our Saturday ride was up to Old Orchard before the rains started.

It was West Boylston, not Bermuda, but the Bermuda shorts were the fashion! I guess they are better than if it was a kilt!


Take a look at the pictures from the 2006 Americade!



A visit to the Higgins Armory in Worcester was a lot of fun. We got to see what the best-dressed Knights wore 500 years ago, as well as today, and had the opportunity to joust via a chess board. It was a fun museum, with lots of information.


On Armed Forces Day, May 20, we had the opportunity to stop at the Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in Green Hill Park in Worcester. If you have not stopped here - please do. It is a beautiful tribute to the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam War.



On our way over the Bourne Bridge for our annual weekend get-away on Cape Cod... and what a great weekend it was!


A stop at Mattapoiset Light before heading across the canal


Our stay was in Eastham ...

A stop at Provincetown

Lunch at the Bookstore Restaurant in Welfleet



Sunday we had a ride back up the Cape with a stop in Chatham

We do draw attention to ourselves! We befriended Officer Little, a Motorcycle Cop in Chatham when we stopped by Chatham Light.


Whose Florida license plate is that??

Yes, Mass-2 has our own snowbirds now!

...of course the weekend had our traditional mini-golf challenge.

A stop at Marconi Station on the Cape Cod National Sea Shore caught Cliff on the wrong side of the fence looking at the cliffs!


No one truly appreciated our president's colorful shirt... I bet he wears it at Americade too!

At our Friday lunch stop at Turks, before we came across the bridge, we met this wonderful lady who was celebrating her 102 birthday. She asked to have her picture taken on the bike and hopped right up without any help!


The feast begins at the Medieval Manor in Boston


April 2006 -- 6 weeks to go before Americade.
Lake George looks a little different now than the first week in June. There is little traffic, plenty of parking -- PLUS Stoney Creek has not open for the season yet!

Oh no! A late April fire on Canada Street in Lake George
destroyed a block of buildings.

A good way to start the new year is with a winter pot-luck get-together. Although there was not any snow for sledding at the farm this year there was plenty of food and friendship on hand!


This year's NE Motorcycle Expo at the World Trade Center - Boston


Kevin and Shakey had to ask for special assistance in reading their menu's!
