Although this fall season has been a hectic one for North Fork Moto, I think we found some super spooky ways to celebrate the season away from the crowded pumpkin patches and apple orchards of the North Fork. While the crowds help sustain our business, we’re thankful for our rock star staff that allowed us to escape the mayhem and spend some quality time enjoying autumn. Read on for our MUST-DO list of all things FALL.
Although this event was put together at the last minute, we're thankful to all the riders who came out to have a BEAUTIFUL day of exploring the North Fork and making stops at all the farmstands.
And those who use Rever, I was able to share a route that averted most of the North Fork traffic and took riders on all the scenic roads. We had riders come all the way from Nassau County to enjoy the day.
Most people showed up at the cafe around 10am-11am to have some coffee while planning their route. Points were given for each farmstand participants visited (we agreed having that many donuts wouldn't be good for anyone - HAAA) as well as bonus points for pictures posted and tagged on Instagram, and doing the ride in costume.
It was stiff competition, as riders were also competing against people who decided to enjoy the ride in their cage (a.k.a vehicle). Once back at the shop, points were tallied and while everyone gave it their best - our Nassau County native, MS CHILL, brought home the prize as she took full advantage of Instagram points, as well as the points for coming dressed in costume - HAIL, THE MOTO WITCH!
An amazing day was had by all! Looking forward to doing this again next year!
Yes, it's a riding miracle! I have finally found my FAVORITE riding pant on the market. And I'm willing to bet it will be yours too! Yes, they're pricey - but for good reason! Read on! And maybe you'll find a discount code within the blog.
I have literally invested in almost every riding pant on the market - even since before any were made specifically for women. Then when brands like Alpine Stars, and Dainese stared selling riding pants tailored for women, I bought them all because they must be better than what was out there, right?
So what do we do on our first day off since October? We ride, of course! But start the day with a beautiful church service at North Shore Christian Church.
After a healthy dose of spirituality, we got on our bikes and hit some trails (in an undisclosed location for legal reasons). We packed accordingly, and were able to do a quick photoshoot for our newest candle - OFF ROAD - a fragrance blend of pine, laurel, amber, and tree sap with a pop of tonic that's absolutely spring-in-a-candle and happened to be our best-seller this past weekend at our moto boutique.
Then we took the "twistiest" route to the South Shore Dive in Sayville. Although we know it rocks for Tuesday night trivia, we couldn't wait to try their brunch and it did NOT disappoint. We were greeted by one of our favorite bartenders, Peter, then enjoyed some mimosas. But the highlight was truly their delicious and diverse menu. The selection was creative and unique without being over-the-top. Think: a fresh combination of comfort foods.
