Indian 101 Scout Ride Sept 26 For All Classic Motorcycle Riders (Connecticut)

This Saturday, September 26, George Yarocki is inviting all riders of classic motorcycles (any make or model) to join members of the Indian 101 Scout club for a semi-organized ride. It is from George’s house in Torrington, Connecticut to the Connecticut Antique Machine  Association  http://www.ctamachinery.com annual event in beautiful Kent, Connecticut on Route 7.

According to George, the classic (and modern) motorcycle riders can begin assembling at his house (679 Riverside Avenue, Torrington, CT 06790) around 9 am with plans to roll out to Kent around 10 am.

George and possibly others will follow all the classic motorcycles with a chase vehicle “just in case.”

The ride from Torrington to Kent, Connecticut is about 25 mlies and should take the classic motorcycle ride less than  an hour assuming no mechanical issues or break downs along the way.

Everyone is invited to ride along with us, even if you are on a modern motorcycle, car or truck. This is a ran or shine event, but let’s hope for shine.

I am planning on trucking my 1931 Indian 101 Scout up to George’s house and then riding the rest of the way. Sure hope plenty of Indian motorcycle riders (including Gilroy Indians) join us, and we’ll even welcome Harley riders too.

Hope to see you there, this CAMA gathering, which features all sorts of industrial and mechanical machinery is supposed to be a great event for all gearheads.

In spite of the beautiful weather and wonderful road condition (with predictions for rain the next day) I was surprised that only 3 classic motorcycle Indians showed up for the ride.

Will Paley lead the way – about 20 twisty, winding and sometimes hard packed dirt road miles – on his strong running 1920s Indian 101 Scout. I followed him on my 1931 Indian 101 Scout, and another man rode about half way on his 1946 Indian Chief. George “Mr 101” Yarocki followed in his van with trailer, in case we passed a Harley on the side of the road needing mechanical help.

Great event with lots of very cool machinery.
