    Riding 05-28-06 Berkshires

    The ride today was awsome! A few members of ODFU, and Man God and myself joined in. Kitt (the guy organizing the poker run) was there, very nice, friendly guy. Bokey, Speedzilla (nice seeing you again!!), GTI337, and can't remember the names of the guys on the beautiful white Hayabusa and the others (sorry guys...bad memory for names here) We met at the Basketball Hall of Fame off Interstate 91, and headed on route 57 towards Southwick, Granville, Tolland, etc. at the end of route 57, right where those tight curves are and it's going downhill, we had one of the guys crash his bike, there was a lot of sand, almost all the way in the middle of the road. The guy I think got pretty lucky given he was not wearing gear, he left on an ambulance, got road rash on his arms...there was a party going on RIGHT THERE in the curve, at a house where all cops, fire mens and EMT's were gathering, so I can tell you, didn't take long to get medical response. The fire marshall who owned the building/garage offered to put the bike in his garage to avoid towing it away. We went on route 66, this stretch of road was AWSOME. We stopped at a little restaurant on route 66 for lunch, right along a beautiful river with rapids. Here's a few pics:

    The bike has extensive cosmetic damages, not sure about the frame, mechanic and everything else...

    This is Nate's bike...

    Bokey, Kitt, Stephan, (the guy against the tree, sorry can't remember his name!), GTI337 (Nate) and SpeedZilla (Ken) - Hope I got it all correct? lol
