I Love New York!

The New York skyline from the Staten Island Ferry.

If I can get even one person to get out and take a Dream Ride or even take a trip to somewhere they've always wanted to visit then I've fulfilled my goal with Dream Your Ride.

New York is a city that's been on my Dream list for a while and now I've been there.  What a stimulating place!

Photos and movies simply are not enough to experience this city.  You need to walk the streets, hear the sounds and be immersed completely in the New York experience.

The most sobering experience of my visit was being at Ground Zero, especially with the 14th anniversary of 9/11 only a few days away.  Seeing the memorial fountains and the engraved names of those who died on that day hit me hard.

The fountain where the South Tower of the World Trade Center stood.

Also seeing the One World Trade Center towering over the memorial struck me as a symbol of hope and a testament to human resilience.

And when in New York a visit to the Statue Of Liberty is in order.

This is a blog about riding and so I paid a visit to New York City Harley Davidson in Manhattan, a beautiful full service dealer in the heart of the city.  I wanted to take home a beautiful Road Glide Ultra CV, however I settled for a shirt.

Paying homage to the famous NYC Yellow Cab.

Next up a 7 day cruise on a 2015 Harley Davidson Ultra Limited through 7 eastern U.S. states.
