If you don't have heated gear (which I highly doubt due to your location) another good option is a fleece jacket that she (and you) can wear under your riding jackets. I would also highly recommend full riding gloves as opposed to fingerless.

And RAIN GEAR is a must in Pa. because we get seasonal pop up showers as well.

Now having just laid all this out Pa. is odd (as many people know) and it could also be a very humid 90+ during the days and muggy as heck in the am.

Best advice I can give is be prepared..................Oh and as Mark said skip the speedo .........Please

I have a First Gear jacket with a lot of vents and pants/rain proof that I use even down here in the 90 degree temps. I road up to Minnesota in 45 degree weather with that gear with a few added layers on and was good. Have gloves for both of us as well as rain gear for my wife. Just will have to pack a heavier jacket for her. More then what I was initially planning on bring though. Thanks for the feed back.

Aaw bring the speedo . I think it would give many of us a good laugh. Besides when is the last time you saw some one riding a Wing in a speedo. I assume your are riding a Wing and not a Harley.

Good thing you asked then. You will see there isn't a whole lot in the way of major shopping stores up there (WalMarts and such). Probably 30-40 mile trek to one but on the plus side it is a huge outdoors area so I'm sure you can always find apparel of sorts if need be.

Yes I ride a wing. I like my ride to purrrrrrr.

I would actually have to go out and buy a speedo first. "Safety First", and that doesn't include wearing a speedo without and riding gear.

Maybe we can put together a "Speedo /Bikini Ride"

Having seen most of these folks in person or on the forum's pictures (ourselves included), I have one statement to make.


I'll be at the restaurant while you are having that.

If that is what you want to do I think you will have to get together with the other group down the road.
I'll do everyone a favor and leave my speedo home. Some of my neighbors have complained about going blind for a couple of days
after seeing me in a speedo. I'm not sure how that would affect own rides .
