I Ride: 2014 Ducati 1199 ABS
NY Route 97

So, I took my kids to my home town of Middletown, NY for the week of the 4th of July.

About 20 min West of Middletown, near the Pennsylvania border is a road called the Hawk's Nest. It is NY route 97, just above the Delaware River outside of the town of Port Jervis, NY.

It had just rained when I rode up there, so I was hesitant to go too fast since I only have 1300 miles on my new Pani.

But, my Dad took some pretty nice pics of the road.

I am including some here.

If any of you get a chance to ride up near the NY, PA border near Interstate 84, you have to check this road out.

Oh, and the pavement sucks. Beat the crap out of my nuts. But, it was still fun.

Looks fun. Haven't been on rt97, but I have been on 10, 28, 28a, and 30. Will have to try 97 next time I'm that far west.

Thanks for the tip. I've passed by there several times over the past 10 yrs or so on my way to visit/ride with friends in CT and VT - even stopped for gas in Pt. Jervis a few times. Never knew there was a nice road right there. Will have to check it out next time I'm up that way.
