Phone: 516 621 9176...fax: 516 621 9178
Comments: There are several nearby BMW dealers, club meetings, and even R1200C owners. (Huntington, Valley Stream, Westchester, Manhattan). Manhattan is close by (about half hour through the tunnel to midtown) Roslyn is near the Long Island Sound, with some beauty rides along the coastal north shore. It is also close to major east west highways stretching from Manhattan to Montauk. There are great restaurants, a major outdoor sculpture museum, and plenty of country style "back roads" Visitors usually don't expect this much country this close to the city. Have garage space (no cars allowed in the 'two car' garage) if it's raining, you can park or do some indoor maintainence, while we talk by the fireside.

Comments: Unfortunately, no nearby dealers. The closest dealer is Rochester, New York, about an hour west. Great places to ride!!! The Finger Lakes are beautiful with some of the best wine in the east. To the far north is the St. Lawrence Sea Way and Canada. To the east are the Adirondacks and to the south east are the Catskills. More back roads and places to ride then you will ever have time to get to. I am always available for conversation. My bike needs some work so I am not riding at the moment, but plan to do so in the near future. If you need help, time permitting, I will do my best to lend a hand.
