A Field Trip to Orange County Choppers

By

OCC Clock

 

All right all you motorcycle enthusiasts - Be ready to be jealous.  
I spent much of yesterday at the new Orange County Choppers headquarters in Newburgh NY.  

I know some of you may be surprised that OCC is up here in the Greater Hudson Valley of New York instead of in one of the Warmer Orange Counties like Florida or California but it is right here, not 20 minutes from my home.  I was able to spend time at the building through a program I have been enrolled in for the past 10 months that deals with different aspects of My Orange County called Leadership Orange.  We have gone once a month to various locations around the county learning about institutions and services available to and issues facing the citizens of Orange County, NY.  

We were at OCC Headquarters, which just opened last month, as part of our environmental session.  The building was built including a lot of green technology.  It uses much less energy that other buildings of it's size and they did a phenomenal job there.  It was really cool.  

But back to the real reason for this post, the motorcycles....

Thanks for the comment Jeanette.  I used to watch it but have stopped for some reason maybe I will start again.

Sorry your bike has gone in the wind Rob.  My husband still has his 1960 Panhead which he almost sold once when we needed money but I would not let him.  He went a run with Paul Sr. last week and there were people there from all over the east.  He was laughing when they asked how far he had come and he said about 15 miles.

If you ever decide to come up to visit Kristen let me know.

Clint I know what you mean.  I see them all around the area from time to time.  It is strange to walk into Drug Fair and see Mikey.  Thanks for stopping by.

It is something to see Barbara.  You should get down there.

I know people are surprised it is so close by here Kevin.  From your neck of the woods you can hop on 87 to Newburgh and it is right on 17K just past Rt 300.

If you ever decide to come up for a visit let me know.  Can't gaurenttee a face to face but it is fun to look around.  We have tons of great things to do here too.  West Point, the Shawangunk Mountains, the waterfront on the Hudson, it is a great place to visit no lie.

Hi Teresa,

They do a lot more than they let on for charity actually.  There are one of the biggest contributors to Make a Wish here in OC NY.  The old man knows where he came from and hasn't forgotten that everyone needs a hand sometimes.  Thanks for the revisits to this old blog.
