Today\'s Ride Thru Upstate New York

Hit up some twisties around the Albany, NY area...made it as far as Oneonta, and thru a bunch of other small towns...

Snapped just a few pics of some of the nice scenery that we came across..regret not stopping more often to take some more pics, but it was a fast paced ride with many high speed sweepers and a fair amount of tight twisties....

Enjoy

That's awesome ... and my area.

I'm from Canajoharie (about 45 miles West of Albany) ...

Try Route 10 from Cooperstown to Speculator ... and then Rte 30 North. You will smile.

thats funny, I was actually on 10 today...took route 20 west out of albany to route 7 in Duanesburgh, to route 10 in Richmondville, thru Summit and Schoharie, and ended up near Oneonta...Love 10, its a great road


Let me know where you are so we can meet up some time...maybe you can show me some new roads up there...not too familiar with the area

the front is actually a fairly new tire that got warped this winter...guess the few times I took the bike out of the shed and onto the wet lawn/dirt, it froze then thawed and now it looks like a wrinkled penis


I actually have an apointment this fri to get my new super corsas mounted and balanced...its on after that..very excited to try these tires on the street

Hmmm...yup looks like NYS...I lived in Syracuse for a while until I went to college. It is pretty nice there in the summer...but I got tired of all the snow...I prefer to be able to fly in see the snow and leave the next day.

Nice pics, I have been all over the world but have never been to NY. Everytime I think of NY I think of the city, but looks like upstate has some beautiful country

Re: Today\'s Ride Thru Upstate New York

AllAire is a big corp out in the Bronx that does cooling and heating for industries like malls, dept stores, skyscrapers, and buildings all over the city...huge cooling units that you can walk thru..they are also venturing in some new technologies..something about micro turbines or some shit of the future...I dunno, but I'll be trained to work on them...

....starting off slow, then in 6 months joining the steamfitters union, then if I am dedicated enough, 6 months after that they will train and certify me as a mechanic/tech and thats where the big bucks start rolling in....

...I have little or no prior experience in this field, but they are excited to have someone out of college to be working for them rather than the usual people they get out of APEX Tech or ITT Tech, where they say they have to untrain what they have learned there, so they gave me the opportunity to join the team...

...considering the shit I got into while up in Albany, I am grateful to have this job right out of school
