Crossing back into the USA, we find hot humid temps, busy streets of New York, a special private tour of the Polaris Factory and a few beer with the crew at Klock Werks at their pre-Sturgis party.
So much happens in S04 E07 NYC – Polaris Factory Tour – Klock Werks Pre Sturgis Party!
Riding back in the USA
Summer of 2015 we began an adventure of The Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride thanks to Cycle Works of Alberta, Victory Motorcycles, Indian Motorcycles and Blue Circle Insurance. We are on the road for 8 weeks demo riding a Victory Magnum (Ang) and an Indian Chieftain (Troy).
Maine to Massachusetts to Manhattan
We stick to the Interstate as we make our way from Bangor Maine to Boston Massachusetts where we get a home cooked meal at friends house and hang out at MOM’S Dealership while Ang gets her front tire installed. A great day of riding in the heat we make our way to New York City, 31F plus humidity plus the heat of bikes we are getting anxious to reach Time Square which seems to take over 2 hours to reach. Oh but it is worth it to pull our bikes right into Time Square amongst all the other tourist who are on foot. The police were either shocked or oblivious to us and they never gave us an ounce of trouble, in fact,they took our picture.
Riding East across to Iowa
Heading east from New Jersey we ride through the beautiful state of Pennsylvania, stopped over night in Ohio, carried on through Indiana, Illinois and camped out in Iowa for a few days. Too many toll booths to count never mind the coins/bills we handed over and over and over. Toll roads is something Canada does not have a lot of so it always seem like there are 1000’s more than there actually is. Traveling on the Interstates, that we help pay for, sure does make up time, cruising along at a good speed with not much to worry about.
Polaris Factory Tour
We got the call on a rainy stormy morning that we get to go and have a personalized tour of the Polaris Factory. With all the new 2016’s being released in a couple days in Vegas, things were set to high security and we were very honoured to be able to get into the plant at this exact time. Thank you Dale for a super tour, we were blown away by the plant, the people and the product.
A great Pre-Sturgis Party at Klock Werks
It is almost time to get to Sturgis 75th Anniversary but first a stop in Mitchell South Dakota to partake in the pre-Sturgis Klock Werks Party. It is always a good time, great people, great food, cold beer, meet others that have the same passion for motorcycling as we do. It is always good to talk to Laura about Helping With Horsepower, and get an update of how they are all doing.
Next week we get to the 75th Anniversary of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
We have lots to do, see and many people to catch up with over a cold beer or 2.
Stay tune for our final episode of The Worlds Longest Motorcycle Demo Ride.
