I got surprised with a wedding invitation for that same weekend in MD so looks like I'll be riding from NY down to the Baltimore area for a nuptial Saturday and then to PA for Sunday/Monday. Shame to shorten my first DOOM but alas - love is blind.

Boz, just a heads up that most of us clear out pretty early on Sunday. I'm not sure if anyone is staying until Monday this year...

The Cross Keys is a pretty dismal place Sundays when the bar is closed. :shock:

I think we were all on the road by about 10am when I went. Definitely try to make it Saturday if you can.

Probably a better idea to roll down Friday then and stay at Cross Keys fri night, and off to MD on Sat after whatever shenanigans I can sneak in, it sounds?

If those are your options (Friday evening or Sunday afternoon) then absolutely yes.

That Saturday -- from 0001ET to 2359ET -- is really the "core" of DOOM. Make some of that, preferably with a mix of dark and daylight hours. :mrgreen:

Last year things wrapped up earlier than in years past Saturday night, largely just 'cause we're all getting old and we can't party like we could in days of yore.

That, and we've learned that riding while ill-slept and/or hungover suuuuucks. :shock:

At least twice I flaked out and rode up on a Sunday to find nothing but a giant moose basically telling me that I missed it. Friday into Saturday is where it's at.

I'm going to ride down as early as possible on Friday (thinking I'll sneak out midday and avoid rush hour leaving NYC). The wedding in Maryland is near the PA border at 2 so I'll unfortunately miss a lot of riding with you all but looking forward to some beers and handshakes.

Also about to just call up CKI and get my own room unless there's still a spot in anyone's room? Bueller?

If I recall correctly, there is a nice little tree line behind the X-Keys, with a stream; as well as behind the "CARS" place to the east of the Portal. A little stealth camping to liven things up.

I long for the days when DOOM pictures were quickly uploaded after the weekend. Fuck bookface.

Heh. I'm planning on showing up Friday night (I think) but i don't have a room. Will be trying to get one or crash on someone's floor. :D

(I'm just glad I can make it with a working bike!!)

As luck would have I get sick the week of a DOOM I can attend with a bike giving me issues. Bitching aside, moved some plans so I’ll ride up sat evening from the wedding and switched my res to sat night (floor open).
Learned a few things about carbs this week. Also looking forward to fuel injected bikes one day...

Fuck I wish I could have been there, for some reason I am getting less and less riding time and a weekend dedicated to it would be a nice change.

It's just too easy to post pics to FB. Hell, I'm too lazy most days to post pics to my build thread, mainly because I need to resize them for the board.

Hank, DOOM 2020! We're gonna go to the UTZ factory and eat cheeze balls.

The ride back was decent despite consistent head- and cross- winds on 78. DAMN I enjoyed rekindling the joy of motorcycles with you people. I'd love to see some photos from the weekend since I took exactly 0.

I hope we set your expectations suitably low. :mrgreen:

Sorry, I've no pictures, but there seem to be plenty on FecesBook.

Home in under 6 hours (just shy of 400 miles) no achievement awards, AFAIK, unless they had some GATSO cams...

Happy to report that despite the usual backup problemaddict's cock safely passed through Mianus.

Let's hope he got in a good stretch while doing so.
