Once you hit Pennsylvania watch for all the pot holes and deer. You may want to consider wearing a gas mask when you enter the farm country. :D
Ride safe

We have five bikes heading up to Lancaster tomorrow ( Sunday ). Two Wings, two Harley Glides and a VTX. Two double up, one double up with a dog in a travel pouch and two solo riders. A veritable traveling circus.

Have a good time Chop. Looks like good weather will be your guide. Ride safe and enjoy. Oh, and spend lots of $$$. Pennsylvania needs the sales tax....LOL

Overcast but dry for the trip up there. Overcast and wet for the return home. And I chose this day to wear my half shell helmet. A face-shield would have come in handy for the ride home.

Sorry you hit rain. Don't you carry zip lock bags? I think the gallon size would fit over your head.... LOL.. Glad you had a safe trip...

Ziploc ? Mind if I ponder the possibilities. They laughed at Fulton's steam boat.

Picture this: During the rain, Chopin is leading and in his infinite wisdom, leads all 5 bikes under cover - in a do-it-yourself car wash bay. I found this to be just slightly ironic!

Did they wash the bikes while waiting for the storm to pass?

My photographer was sleeping in the back seat on this ride. I was lead rider so my attention was on those behind me and what was up ahead. Better than that ride was the one Mike, Kate and I took last Saturday to Appomattox, VA. Here is where the war of " Northern Aggression " was finally put to rest.

I love the Civil War sites. So much to see, so many stories and such beautiful scenery to enjoy (regardless of what side you were on). Thanks for the pics..

One thing that added to the enjoyment of the trip was a complete crap-shoot. I asked Lee and Kate if they were up for an adventure after lunch and they said yes, so I set the onboard GPS to avoid highways and then told it to plot our route back home. We were very pleasantly surprised when it took us on a couple of roads that weren't in the best shape as far as the road surface, but the slow speed twisties were great fun! The scenery couldn't be beat either. In one stretch of close to 10 miles, we encountered only one car going the other way. This in 75 degree sunshine. A good day, to say the least!

Last time I did that my GPS took me up a mountain on a old dirt path with 2 ruts in it. How it could think that was a road was beyond me. I did see a lot of wildlife though and they looked at me like I was crazy... The road was so narrow I could not even turn the Wing around, so I had to just keep going until I finally hit pavement.

The machines are trying to take over. That was a test to see if you would blindly follow orders. You passed! ;)
