    CT United Ride 2015

    On Sunday August 30, 2015 I am riding with members of the America's Guardian at the CT United Ride. The Ride is a benefit for the Connecticut Fire Departments. I am told there will be about 2,500 motorcycles riding with full police escort over about a 60 Mile ride through Connecticut. I will be riding my 2001 BMW R1100RL in it so I guess that I will not be able to hear my engine over all the Harley Davidson's. Another interesting thing is the America's Guardian were asked to ride with the Blue Knights as VIP members up front of the ride. The Ride will begin in Norwalk CT. and end In Bridgeport Ct and cover a lot of beautiful roads from looking at the ride Itinerary. I will let you know more about it when I am done with the ride. This is my first ride with this many bikes at once. Before this I did a benefit ride with about 1,000 bikes over a 14 mile route. This should be fun.

    Cool CT United Ride 2015

    Today I rode in the 2015 CT United Ride to benefit the Firemen of 911. I was told by a large number of people that this year was the largest they have ever seen there. In theory there were at least 3,000 bikes attending the ride. It was certainly the largest ride I have ever done. I rode today on my 2001 BMW R1100RL with no passenger. We covered about 50 miles from Norwalk CT to Bridgeport CT wrapping through many towns. Our Riding speed varied a great deal from standing still for a couple of seconds to 50MPH. It is hard when most people can't hold a steady speed. My Beemer handled the ride perfectly at all speeds, especially when it got down below 10MPH. Rock solid on line. The only accident I passed by was a Japanese Sport bike with the rider lying on a stretcher with a neck brace on. I did not see what happened but I know if you lost your concentration just for a second things will go wrong real quick. It was a great cause and a fun ride for a Sunday afternoon. Still went for a normal ride myself after I was done with the traffic jam. I went out to ride some nice twisty roads to get frozen yogurt. Life could be worse.
