Spring Swarm: 05/01/11

The crew had such a good time last year with our final event and the route, it was decided that we would rerun the route this year in a more civilized temperature. Nine bikes arrived at the Pilot Station, re-fueled, and prepared for action. Two squadrons were formed with TJ's group(two Teutonic twins, 2 niners, and a CBR) being the first to leave. The early route was to be a little deviation from the original due to some logistical problems and a walk/run marathon over in Asbury. The second flight departed just a few minutes later with 3 niners and another BMW.

Brown Trout in the Upper Deck:

After 75 miles of warm-up and plenty of rural twisties, our group needed a break and sought refuge at the Swartzwood Firehouse with a portable commode across the street. The respite was appreciated, but someone had left their calling card in wrong receptacle. A few laughs ensued with a photo op as we were going to pin the loose deuce on the the first wave. We did a 20 mile super twisty loop and returned past the Deli without incident, but did not find the first squadron. The remainder of the ride was exactly the same as last fall with the exception of a nice tour through the community of Mountain Lake. Re-fueled in Belvidere, we headed for TK's across the Delaware River and through the playground of River Road.

Felix and the Golden Shower:

The first flight did stop at the Deli, but apparently left prior to our arrival down the street. Our routes were exactly the same with only a few adjustments for fuel and a multiple passes for their enjoyment through the carousel at River Road. Their pause at the Deli caused them to search for a private place to void their bladders(the Deli has no restroom). Suitable cover was found behind the dumpster which apparently is where aging felines go to pass on to the "great litter pan in the sky."

Both groups arrived within minutes of each other, a table for ten was arranged, and orders were taken. TK's is a restaurant that is never crowded and two wheelers are always welcomed. Unfortunately, our favorite waitress was not on duty that day. Plenty of conversation ensued about the activity of the day, the attractions, and where to for the next Swarm. FYI, there is a Sunoco Station on Route 94 in Blairstown that has some mighty fine pump jockeys managing your fuel requests. Thanks to Sckill for the recon work on that.

Everyone arrived home safely with full bellies and a few more miles of Jersey twisties under the belts.

Thanks for your support.

not without a pic of a deuce and jfslater98 in his lunch attire. After he admitted to pissing on a cat, I have a theory on who possibly could leave an upper decker for the group 2.

So you really think a guy who looks like this is suspicious?



Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Thanks Jim! Great site you're running here!

Thanks also to the East Coast crew for letting me run with you. I had a terrific time, looking forward to riding with you all again.

Disclaimer: no animal/s alive or deceased were injured during this Swarm. Any relationship between jfslater98 and the loose deuce is purely coincidental despite the fact that they both appear in the same post. The distance between the dumpster and the plastic commode is too great to accomplish both feats without being missed by the first squadron for that length of time.

Those are some great pics. Can't tell you how pleased I am that I am right next to ground zero for the Porta Potty Upper Decker meme that this thread will spawn. I Googled it, we are first on the block for that one. Nice!

Here's the thread I mentioned at lunch. Great tip for those of you trying to get a little more performance out of your I4's.

That's why the disclaimer was added.

There may be a question or two about the look of pride and accomplishment as you gaze toward the trout photo, but you would have had to "fly" down and make a deposit. Does that "under-the-stich outfit" come with a cape?

Just asking.

Doc

No, I took my 9er. I took apart my WP and put it back together before the ride and it haven't leaked since, yet it is. I got new one, just to be safe.
It worked out well as gas stations were few and far between up there.


Here is a couple of pics for you though

It does, but I usually don't wear it. See, no matter how many times I clean it, this odd stain near the bottom always seems to reappear. Always after a ride near parks too. Strange.

Between my 9er (10k miles) and DRZ (3k miles) I spent $6500. For bikes only, without any upgrades. This way I got two different bikes for not even price of new one
