  • 2012 Northeast Rod Run

    Hi guys and girls,

    I don't know how many of you know about our little trip, because I usually just post up details in the "Events" section of the forum and I don't know how many of you ever leave the HRPT threads, but with this year being our 5th anniversary I'm posting up in here for more visibility. In the events section it is always one of the threads with the most views, so I'm sure it should attract a lot of attention and interest in here.

    The trip is always attended by many HRPT veterans and Bangshifters. Some of this year's highlights are Lake George, NY, a nice cruise down Route 6 into the Poconos and a paced lap on Thunder Road at Watkins Glen. The trip is always the first weekend in October and we try to make at least one interesting stop each day, while keeping to nice scenic roads as much as possible (approx 200 miles each day), so we don't have to hammer down just to try to make it to the next stop. It's more about the actual drive than the destination.

    Throughout the year, most of the trip details are posted up on our own website/forum but I do try to put small updates on here and the Northeast Rod Run Facebook page also. Facebook has plenty of pictures from past trips.

    If it sounds like something you might be into, check out these links here. Much more info to follow in the next couple of months

        Hey 55lincoln, if you're "right up there with Bob".... then you're definitely our type of people. Plus is always good to get a couple more of our northern neighbors to join us on NERR every year

                Be great to have you!

                We have had people join us from PA and NJ but not as far south as MD yet, although this year is a more central route for a lot of people, so I am expecting many more people that usually wouldn't join us on a regular year.

                People don't always do the entire trip with us (because of time, money, or distance), but when they do it's always totally worth it. Hell, just one or two days and I'm sure you would have a total blast.

                        OK guys, we usually have all our hotel info by the end of February. I push to have it all done by then because not long after that hotels usually don't let me get us discounted rates, because it gets to close to peak Fall season in the northeast.
