    The Elevator Riders RC members and guests, rolled thru Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine on Friday and Saturday October 1st and 2nd 2015. Club members from Illinois, Nebraska, New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, Texas and Massachusetts were to attend this years Club ride. The weather, lets say we had a Hurricane spinning in the Atlantic Ocean that made it less the ideal conditions for our ride. Our tour started at the Boston Harley Davidson dealership.

     

      

     

    Our first stop was at the beach in New Hampshire. The wind was hollowing the sea was roaring. After a quick cup of hot coffee to warm up, it was off to Maine. The coast line was breath taking. The waves that were coming over the road were not. Cape Neddick lighthouse was a welcome site. From there we could see over the Gulf of Maine and our destination the Cliff House Resort & Spa.

     

      

     

    Some very hungry and cold bikers hit the front door of this amazing place. Spectacular can not describe the view. The first order of business was to get warm and of course our favorite beverage. We all had an unbelievable great lobster dinner while sitting back over looking the Gulf of Maine. Some of the finest sea food and atmosphere was enjoyed by all, which put us all down for the night.

     

       

     

    Day two brought not much of a change to the weather. The Hurricane did not move much over night, and continued to punish the coast with some monster waves. Our tour started back heading north to Kennebunkport. We were treated again to some of the most picturesque views of the coast of Maine. We decided to stop in Kennebunkport and check out the vacation home of our past President George Bush. What a place the Bush families have on the coast. It’s been in the family for over a hundred years, and now it’s become a tourist attraction. I do feel sorry for the neighbors.

     

      

     

    Our lunch stop was to be in Arundel, Maine at a local favorite biker stop. We were not disappointed. This place is a legendary hang out for Biker’s. The atmosphere of this place was truly awesome. We met a local and she told us about this Hog on the table in the other room. She said that George Bush’s grand daughter rode the Hog the past weekend. I asked if that was something anybody can do and she said sure. So up on the table I went to ride the Hog. This is another moment that will live forever.

     

      

     

    We had some time to enjoy the company of our fellow riders, and a legendary local Maine biker stop. We all hopped on our bikes and rode south towards Boston. We all stopped for gas and a brief rest before we made our turn and headed back towards Boston Harley Davidson.

     

      

     

    The two day ride was a lot of fun, and some of the best companionship that anyone could have experienced. When we all come back to Boston, we will definitely tour more of the scenic Atlantic Ocean coast line. Boston is a nice place to spend some time with friends.

     

      

     

    Special Thanks to James Monroe Wire & Cable our Host, and our Ride Captain Bob and his wife Ginny for everything they did to make the trip so memorable. We all look forward to next years ride in Montreal, Canada. We may have to use snowmobiles for the ride, but that’s Ok with me. Ah!

    Hello Members of the Elevator Riders RC and the Industry,

     

    I attended the March Annual General Membership Meeting for the Elevator & Escalator Safety Foundation in Tampa, Florida. I arrived on Monday afternoon and Sunshine with 80 degree temperatures was a welcome sight. No bracing for a catastrophic winter storm like last year in Atlanta. I attended the New Board Member Orientation presentation given by the foundations Chairman John Koshak. A thorough overview of the foundations History, Board, Organization, Programs, Financial, and Fund raising were reviewed.

     

    The second day we got to work attending to the foundations business at hand in the annual Board meeting. A thorough overview of the foundations Budgets, Financial, Fund raising, and the rebranding of the program were reviewed. The last order of business for the foundation was the swearing in of the new Board members of the foundation. We have a great new group of directors and alternates volunteering to be on the Board of Directors of the foundation.

    The Elevator Riders RC members and guests, rolled thru Texas on Friday and Saturday September 12th and 13th 2014. Club members from Illinois, Nebraska, New York, Iowa, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida were to attend this years Club ride. Perfect weather, sunshine and blue sky's for our ride was on hand. Our tour started at the AmeriTex Elevator Services Company in San Antonio, Texas. There were plenty of friends of the club that stopped by at the start to wish us a great time on the ride. After all the pictures, and well wishes, we were off riding west to the Hills of Texas.

     

      

     

    Bandera was our first stop. Bandera was exactly what we pictured a Texas Cowboy town to be. We had some time to enjoy the famous OST restaurant and a picturesque Texas town.

     

      

     

    Our second stop was Frio Canyon and it included lunch at a local biker restaurant. Some very hungry bikers hit this local stop. We were all treated to Texas BBQ and burgers for lunch. It was the perfect place to see remnants of the other bikers all over the place.

     

      

     

    The ride through the Hills of Texas was an amazing adventure touring the famous Twisted Sisters Texas routes 337, 335, and 336. What a ride, and we did all three sisters.

     

      

     

    We all headed towards Kerrville, and rolling thunder screamed into town before the sun went down. We all cleaned up and the first order of the night was to get our favorite beverage. We all had dinner at a local Texas steak house. Some of the finest steaks and atmosphere was enjoyed by all, which put us down for the night.

     

      

     

    Day two brought a complete change to the perfect weather of yesterday. A cold front had dropped in from the north sending the temperatures down were some of our group were not prepared to take a motorcycle ride.

     

      

     

    We sent everyone to a local shopping center for cold weather gear. On their return we now had the Decoy Ducks camouflage motorcycle riders. We were now ready for the start of day two. Our tour started back heading north to Fredericksburg. We were treated again to some of the most picturesque ranches and hill country of Texas.

     

      

     

    Our lunch stop was to be in Bandera at a local favorite biker BBQ. We were disappointed, because the Banditos were reserving the place for their club. Not wanting any hassles with the Banditos, we were off to the best experience of the club to date. We arrived at the 11th Street Cowboy Bar. This place is a legendary hang out for Cowboy's. The atmosphere of this place was truly awesome.

     

      

     

    We met a Cowboy named Q in the bar. He kept telling us these old cowboy stories and jokes. Then we all went outside to meet his bull Redneck. This is another moment that will live forever. Q took Redneck out of the trailer, and we all got to meet him.

     

      

     

    We took pictures, and even took a ride on the big guy. Priceless moments in time forever!

     

     

     

    We had some time to again enjoy the company of our fellow riders, and another picturesque Texas town. We all hopped on our bikes and rode east towards San Antonio. We all stopped for gas and a brief rest before we made out turn and headed back towards AmeriTex.

     

     

    The two day ride was some of the best touring and companionship that anyone could have experienced. When we all come back, we will definitely tour more of the scenic hill country of Texas. San Antonio is a nice place to spend some time visiting with friends.

     

    Special Thanks to AmeriTex Elevator Services and all the other club members for the well organized and beautiful tour of the Texas Hill Country. We all look forward to next years Elevator Riders RC club members ride in Boston, Massachusetts.
