A few months in to that summer of '72 flood clean up Mom and Dad asked my brother and me if we'd rather replace our games and toys OR "go get a couple of minibikes?" The rest as they say is history. I'm looking forward to making new friends here at MOA.
    Since 99.5% of the NY land mass is "Upstate" could you guys be a bit more definitive. Since you mentioned Agnes, I assume you're near the North Branch of the Susquehanna. Is that so?

    Otherwise, welcome to the cranky, semi anti-social world of the BMWMOA forums. We do bipolar better than most

    Grew up just outside of Painted Post not too far from Corning where the Tioga river meets the Chemung. Now live just east of Rochester near our local BMW dealer Country Rode Motowerks.

    Welcome to the Forum and the MOA Club, Max and RD.

    Living in NY and being so close to us in Ontario, you might wish to check out our Club's ABC Rally being held from May 17-21 this spring.

    Welcome to the site.
    In 1974/1975 I went to New York State Ranger School, which is located on Cranberry Lake.
    You're right, that part of the state has great scenery.

    Was fun reading this thread. Grew up in the Elmira area. Now in O-HI-O in the Air Force. Great riding in that part of the country. I envie you guys/gals. It's rather flat out here - until you get in the southeast portion of the state. May have to come out that way this summer -- do the Finger Lakes tour.

    Cheers!

    I live directly south of Painted Post / Corning near Penn State University. Most of my riding is in the twin tiers of PA/NY
