Northeast Motorcycle Expo in Boston.
It was cold and windy... but we had 14 members that

the Boston Bike show. Lot's to look at and a lot of fun!

Pot-luck and sledding Hayride party.
What a great time - and a big crowd! We had 28 members
and friends attend and the weather cooperated for our Hayrde too. We spent
about an hour with two new friends - Bo and Luke our draft horses - that
took us around the woods and fields of Ashby. Then it was back to the
farm for food and to look at the ride schedule for 2007.

Spring Business Meeting (and dinner).
A stress-free day awaited us at the
