Hawk 250 – 100 Mile Bike Ride with Girlfriend
It was a beautiful sunny day in the Catskills and the girlfriend and I decided to go on a nice journey and see how far we can get. At the end of the ride we did over 100 miles on the hawk 250 dual sport and it was a great ride, its really conferrable to me and I can ride on the hawk 250 all day long. I did some recording and will be posting some short YouTube clips soon with the hawk 250 in action.
Our first stop was just off route 52 in Ellenville, NY. This is just before the Sam’s Point hiking trails and I would recommend doing the hiking trails in winter for the ice caves.
Such a great view from up here. No matter what time you come, its always amazing. Plus the hawk 250 looks really good in the background =).
I was a bit hungry, so I got myself 2 hotdogs and in about 2 seconds they were gone and we were back on the rode with the hawk 250.
Next stop on the hawk 250 adventures was to the Rondout Reservoir near the southern end of Catskill Park, split between the towns of Wawarsing in Ulster County and Neversink in Sullivan County. We rode thru Ellenville and then jumped on Route 55a and did a lap around the reservoir which was an amazing ride with the hawk 250.
We tried fishing here in the summer but we came when it was so hot and definitely the wrong time for fishing and had no luck catching anything, we went home hungry for some fish.
What a prefect background to the amazing hawk 250 dual sport bike. We are loving this bike and got to see a lot of the Catskills and Hudson Valley and its great on gas and super fun to ride.
Put my new hawk 250 sticker on the front headlight section, its a bit off but I like it.
The girlfriend enjoying the view from the hawk 250. Wearing my baggy hoody and a heavy schoolbag full of tools and nuts/bolts, because you just never know when you will need some tools for the hawk 250.
She looks like a owl with that helmet setup.
Next we ended up by Route 52 in Neversink, NY. The old lady had to let her hair breath a bit and then it was back on the road.
Always time for more hawk 250 pictures.
Some pictures my girlfriend took while we were cruising on the hawk 250 on some beautiful scenic roads. You can see I’m flying at 42MPH =).
Went thru some country counties and plenty of cows and horses and all sorts of other animals around, so beautiful riding in the Catskills. Barely any cars on the road.
Riding in the fall is the the best. No need to deal with that heat and sweat and the hawk 250 likes the clean fresh chilly air.
It was a great day of riding, we did over 100 miles on the hawk and it was pretty much non-stop riding. We had to stop for a few pictures here and there. The hawk 250 did well with 2 people on the bike, going uphills it would do 40-45 and there were some steep hills and the hawk got us right up there. I also had my Go-fro camera recording some of the footage and I will be posting that on YouTube over the next few days.
Thank you for reading this post and please comment below if you are a hawk 250 owner, I love meeting new owners of this Chinese bike and how they are doing with them so far.

Looks like a great ride! I am in Rochester, any trouble registering the hawk in NY?
I have 3 registered at the dmv. I think now that these bikes have aged a bit. They are a bit easier to register in the dmv. I’m the Hudson valley area.
I live in Texas and drive 60mi round trip to work , so i brought a hawk to save on gas … we’ll see how it go’s.. thanks for all the info you have shared ..
Congrats on your purchase. I’m still loving my hawk and so are my friends. Just make sure to do frequent checks on bolts, spokes and oil changes.
