Fall Foliage Ride

an *Open Ride happening Sunday, September 20 (Rain Date 9/27) - pack your picnic lunch (or buy one along the way). Join us as we head out to the Forked Lake Campgrounds/Buttermilk Falls (by the Hamlet of Long Lake) in the beautiful & peaceful Adirondack Mountains. Once there we'll have a relaxing meal with our friends -there is a 'privy' and two picnic tables plus numerous flat rocks to sit on closer to the creek and falls that feed Long Lake. This is an easy ride open to all skill levels of riding.

We'll take 177 to 12 and on into Lowville, picking up 812 through Croghan to 3. Our first stop will be at Sliders in Harrisville (where 3 & 812 intersect). From there we'll continue on 3 through Star Lake, Cranberry Lake and Piercefield, arriving at our second stop: Tupper Lake Nice & Easy. In Tupper we'll pick up 30 south to Long Lake, turning right shortly afterward to get to the falls. You can preview the route on the H-D Ride Planner.

Bikers Always Have a 'Plan B' - updated August 26, 2020

The good news is that the numbers for COVID-19 (number of cases, deaths & hospitalizations) continue to be going down for our region and our state. The bad news is it ain't over yet. As the 'tourist season' wraps up and our kids are (somewhat) getting back to school, we need to remain vigilant. That means wearing a mask while in public, maintaining social distance, washing our hands often, and continuing to hold our monthly 'Get Togethers' outside.

It is the right thing to do, as we continue to keep the health and well-being of our members, FXCHD employees, and everyone's families our first priority. For more information on the coronavirus and what you can do to help stop the spread, you can visit New York State "Moving Forward" and recommendations from the CDC.

Of course motorcycling is THE ultimate 'social distancing' sport! If you plan on riding out of state, we highly recommend checking to see what, if any, travel restrictions they might have. Also, remember to watch for road debris, wildlife and other traffic that is also out. Stay alert and anticipate problems. Confine your urge to push your personal limits on the bike, choosing instead to exercise caution. Last but not least, stay hydrated, and at the very least wear a long sleeve t-shirt to protect yourself from the sun. 

The events with a 'degree symbol' or ° next to the title are on a "we will see" basis thanks to COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus). As the news comes in we will adjust these events and keep this page updated. You can also contact Dawn (your FX Thunder H.O.G.® Manager) if you have any questions: on the WhatsApp, email ( or 315-583-6177

From our FX Thunder Family to yours, we hope you and your family are safe and healthy. Get outside, go ride & rack up those miles for Ride 365!

The Harley Owners Group® riding club was founded by and for people who share the passion for the freedom of being in the saddle. So there aren't a bunch of rules and responsibilities here. This is something you do on your own terms. It's an easy way to meet some like-minded people and have some fun.

And you're invited to take us for a test ride!
