Long Reach Long Riders

This weekend I will join the tail end of the Long Reach Long Riders 2018 Gap and Notch Tour: A Ramble through New England.  Every year since 2004 they have toured different segments of the country seeking good motorcycle roads and to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Behind the Scenes (helping entertainment technology workers who are seriously ill or injured).  If you go to their website http://www.lrlr.org you can donate to these fine charities (you get the tax credit but you can peg it to me to give me some motorcyclists street cred).

I have met only one of the Riders (who taught me to ride in the first place) and so will get to meet a whole cadre of terrific motorcyclists on the trip.

I had a confidential source supply what is purported to be a photo of the group in advance (to maintain his anonymity I will only reveal his initials are DJT).  As he says:  “Many people have told me that this photo is of the gang you plan to ride with.  I don’t know them personally, but they look like scooter trash to me.  But some, I assume, are nice people.  Who knows?  We’ll see!”

I’ll let you know if they are as nice as the picture indicates and bring back some pictures of the real folks!
