Started yesterday and based on the sudden cold and rainy weather we are experiencing I'm glad I wasn't there. But I am heading up with a couple friends (Harley and an r1200rt) tomorrow/Wednesday for the rest of the week and the weather is supposed to be stellar, mid to high 70's till Saturday. Anyone else from this web-board going to be in attendance?
I have to chase a possible electrical problem when I get home so not sure if I'd bring my r60 or another bike. Trailering from downstate NY to Lake George.

Yes, will be going next year

It was an incredible 5 days of riding, vendor visiting, demo'ing, eating, cigars and cocktails. Because of a potential electrical problem on my r60/2 I brought my '07 Patrol instead. And its a good thing I did. I rode with a group of 9 big twin Harley's and one r1200rt. The Ural performed at the very highest level that it and I could and kept up with the crowd. The r60 never could have.
There were a lot of BMW's but did not see even one vintage model which I thought odd.

My buddy riding the r1200 had one of those Garmin Sports cameras on the front of his bike. We put my GpPro on the back. Now we had a bonfide camera vehicle. Here's a short video of us traveling along Great Lake Sacandaga on our way to Lake George on Thursday or Friday. It is not speeded-up. First time editing camera-to-camera. Its a 4 minute video. See if you can pick me out (Hint: I'm the only one riding a Russian Sidecar rig).

This coming Friday & Saturday is the Rhinebeck Grand National at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. Plenty of old iron and not far from anyone in Mass, CT, NY & NJ. That will be a nice ride up the Taconic Parkway. On the r60/2.
