Sounds great. Right now and I assume we are talking about weekend(s) I can do:
Sat. Feb. 16
Sun. Feb. 17 ---- but I'm not sure if they are open on Sundays??? I'll call and find out.
Sat. Feb. 23
Sun. feb. 24--- again not sure if they are open?

Mike, did you have to bring your bike all the way to Boston, the selling dealer? It doesn't have to be a Ural ride if they are going to hold on to the bike for awhile. I'd love to see your KTM.

BMW and KTM are in storage at Andy's. (And, the KTM is mostly for the dirt. It’s a literal PITA on longer road rides.

Waiting for parts to arrive at the dealer...it’ll be later in February before I can trailer it up for repairs.

Don’t wait for me! I’ll catch you all some other time!

Ironically I have my K75S up at MAX in Brookfield for service. They just called and said the bike is ready. I really didn't feel like riding from there or dragging the Kendon out of the garage to pick it up so they are delivering it for free on Friday.
Andy, if I knew you were storing motorcycles for the Winter I would have had it delivered to your address. Ha.

Rockville-Vernon where the New England Motorcycle Museum is located is 96 miles away from me so I'd imagine when Mike S. get his 2018 back on the road we'll probably meet-up at the same I-95 location. Then pick you up Andy someplace on the way (and anyone else). So any of those Sat & Sun dates should work for all.

Mike, I hope whatever parts you are waiting for your 2018 come in soon. You'd think they'd be off-the-shelf since you rig is so new?
You are welcome to use my trailer to bring your rig to the dealer if you want. Just PM to let me know.

Stagewex- lets shoot for the 23/24 if thats still ok with you. This should give Mike enough time (hopefully) to get his bike back.

Who else wants to go?? :D

Yep, I'm still good for both those days Andy. Weather permitting I'm ready to go.

Surprised no one else seems to be riding this Winter in our area. After all, these are made in Siberia.
If we don't get more Urals I might invite some 2-wheelers if you guys don't mind. Kaplan Cycles and the New England Motorcycle Museum have been a destination ride for more than few of my buddies. They can leave us in the dust on the way home.

Mike (Camel Jockey), did you get your rig up to the dealer for repair yet?

The website says that the museum is open 10-3:30 Sat/Sun. It looks like a cool place. I'm in if not too cold.
