In a day where everyone seems to desire the latest tech bikes to travel the world in, it's nice to see a motorcyclist who takes the time to enjoy an adventure on two wheels with the right mindset. To share it with all of us is even better. Thanks.

Rockabilly Rumble or bust!

Set out for the Rockabilly Rumble/Hotrod Hoedown at the UGH club. Rockabilly, rat rods, bikes, & beer. Fun for the whole family.



Past the old mill. Thought I had grist, musta left it in the other jacket.




Resonance chamber/bridge.

Uh-oh! Lots of detour signs, road closed ahead. Get to the bridge at the bottom of the hill and it's blocked off with barriers and signs saying River Road is closed to traffic. Clearly, this doesn't apply to a red Honda with a racing engine, or else they would'nt have left just enough room for me to squeek the bike through, now would they?



Road seems fine so far; no reason to close it as far as I can see.




This is the way roads should be!




Thick mud and branches on a narrow bridge on a curve - I only wish more roads could be like this! Hoo-Hah!




Figgers, ennit - road's never been more fun to ride, and they try to keep everybody off it.

But they didn't try hard enough. Did they?

Left the river and headed across Jericho Mountain.



Jericho Mountain AME. Rebuilt 1852. A stop on the Underground Railroad. There are caves in Jericho Mountain where people would stop for rest and aid while heading North to safety.

Next:
Old guy on old bike stops to look at more old stuff on the way to see a bunch of other old stuff. Hope it doesn't get old.

Wycombe Baptist.




Wycombe RR station.

OK, I'm dawdling, it's getting into the afternoon, and the Rockabilly Rumble has been going on since Friday evening, and is supposed to end at 5:00 today, Sunday. Gonna miss it if we don't pick up the pace.

Good thing I know a short cut.



Speed limit on unmarked Pennsylvania backroads = 50mph. We can make up lost time here.




Being behind schedule is no excuse for not stopping to check out a really cool vintage cable shovel!




Eight Square Schoolhouse, circa 1802.




+10 Adventure Points if you know what the bike is sitting on in this pic.



It's a Nike air defense battery missile silo.
America's first line of defense against the Red Menace in the skies. Commie airplanes, that is.


Gotta go practice my Duck & Cover now.


Next: Rat Rods! Bikes! Beer! Beer! and Rockabilly music!

Truly a pleasure to read! Thank you for the fabulous ride report! And, as it was so brilliantly put - "you had me at skunk"!

Cheers!

Talking So much great stuff on ADV....

Thanks for bumping this Fancy, er else I woulda missed it all together.

So many things to like about this report! Thanks Hambone! I'm a sucker for PA and those old Hondas, my first "real" motorcycle was a 1974 XL 350. Always drooled over the SLs. So cool that you resurrected it and ride it with abandon.

Had me at skunk too!!

I useda smash the barbs on hooks when I fished.... I figured it evened the playing field a bit and made it easier to free the fish I just selfishly (no pun) caught for fun.

Thanks for the bump. I missed this one. Hambone you had me hooked
without the hook. When I'm in the eastern Sierra I always carry a rod
just so people don't think I'm some kinda nut enjoying the world. I have
always crimped the barbs but now I think I'll try your method...........
hookless!
