    Anyone here live near there and want to rendezvous? I'm heading there and should be in the area Monday the 8th. Riding around Monday-Tuesday and perhaps heading to Huntington, WV on Wednesday. Let me know.

    Got most of mine in,not sure if I should book in Huntington or not. Need to call buddy up and see if he wants us to stay with him or not? I'd rather stay in a hotel than disrupt his family flow but on the other hand I'll feel bad if he expects us to stay with him? Plus we're locked and loaded for the steel toe tour of ther York vehicle operations plant. Maybe they'll give us a free motorcycle like they give free beer samples at beer factories.LOL:

    Ha ha hre in lake harmny, pA. Took a different way down then the usual 91 to 84 and Hartford. Went thru Troy,NY and picked up I 87. Funy thing happened when we were tooling along on the interstate at about 70 -80mph we went over a typical bridge with its typical no big deal bumps but this time I look down as my GPS pops off bounces off my tank and is heading to the road. I stuck my hand out and it bounced in it...what!!!! Picture taken in the hotel room

    Nice catch old man! That GPS crap is dangerous, keeping your eyes distracted from the road and making you play catch with a hand that should be on the bars...LOL!
    Have a safe trip.

    On this trip are you doing Intercourse? It's right before Blue Balls. If not I guess you'll be doing Bird In Hand.

    GPS is the best thing since slice bread. The bracket is secure,I may not have had the unit completely locked down. As far as eyes off the road....it gives voice commands to follow. So glad I caught that unit. GPS is difference maker. I map will get me in the area a GPS will get me to the exact location,good stuff.

    No scratch or dent on the tank.

    Another reason to get ultra low with upgraded screen.

    I've heard of those towns,need to look if I'm close to any of them. When I get to lancaster I'll be 12 miles from intercourse,22 miles from blue balls and no results for bird in the hand, pa.

    Look for family style eating around Amish country. Good food and lots if it. Serve yourself from bowls and platters set at table.

    Glad you caught that thing. Has it rained much so far? Raining here since yesterday and will continue through tomorrow. I'm afraid you may get the rain we have now. Pretty big system moving through . . .
