Today we had a nice ride. Got together at our usual meeting spot for the PA/VA connection. Perkins in Gettysburg, met the GoldDragon & his lovely missus for the 1st time as well as the Old Guy Don. Chopin & Two Wheel were along as well. Perkins was a bit crowded but we passed the time telling stories. Good food & then set off on a bit of a ride that would take most of us in the direction home. Nice PA farm highway 116 through some small towns & then Hanover (Home of Utz Potato Chips & Hanover Pretzels). Jumped on 216 for a sweet ride through the Cordoras State Park & some nice road conditions in an out of the forest. Headed on RT83 North & then parted ways. All total the odometer reading was a comfortable 285 on the day. I hope we all had a good time.

Didn't take any pictures of sites & until I realized it I had to grab a couple at the 83 junction.

1st is Mr/Mz Dragon talking to the Maestro
2nd The Old Guy Don
3rd Two Wheel
4th Mr/Mz Dragon
5th The Mighty Chopin in all his splendor.:rolleyes:

Pulled in about 4:00 p.m. Nice little loop for us , fossil. Don and I headed back down 30 to 15 then headed for the hills in Thurmont. The Perkins breakfast held me over for the entire ride. Riding behind " Mr & Mrs Dragon " I could not keep my admiring eyes off his Michelin Alpine PA3 ZP Winter car tire.

Shhhhh.;) Don't tell them, we could sneak off somewhere on August 5th. And no-one will know that I am riding the Northwest with Ron. They will not even know I am in the USA.:D Eric

You were invited. You're absence, however, was excused by the fact that you rise at least three hours after we over here do. We certainly would not expect you at Perkins at 9:00 a.m. EST given the fact that you get up way too late over there.

It was a good day. I clocked about 350 miles. It was good to meet new folks and meet back up with some old ones. Just an FYI.... I was the only Wing running a m/c tires all around...

So, when's the next one???

That is what I was going to say, helmets off! Thanks for the report, I need to come up that way and see some more of the roads. What I was able to see last year was just great.

Yeah Eric/Ron, you just may have got there before them.:D That's was OK though because we had plenty to listen to.:rolleyes: I though for a moment Charlie was going to join the partiers next door.:D

Ingrid needs to coin that phrase. That would be a great Sticker for her new Ninga.;) Mz.Dragon

Now you know the burden an Ole Fossil bears. I spent what seemed to be 2 hrs at a Bob Evans for a breakfast in W.V. with these guys.:rolleyes:

That's why I volunteer to lead. I figure sooner or later they have to get moving.
