If any of you D-bags do make it up to Ephrata, I will look for you near the Ducati tent around 10 if you want to join me on a winding route back to DE.

Nice seeing you guys today (Charkes and Tom). Sorry I couldn't ride out with you. Maybe next time. My daughter is doing well. She has a virus which is effecting her rear sinus cavities. Nothing a bit of antibotic won't wipe out. Ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure.

Great pictures!!!!

Sorry I missed it today. Went crabbing with my father, brother, son and nephew. Didn't catch many but the ones we did were big.

Good to see you too - glad the girl is OK, you did the right thing.
Here are some pics I took:
A bit of fog on the way up:

Breakfast pic for Gary:

Low Carb!

Charles at bfast:

It was good to follow you up - great roads!

A couple of missing parts on this BMW:


Nice BMW/hack:


Triumph Tiger - pretty bike


Nice Guzzi:


Honda 305 twin:

Back in the day my first bike was a honda s90. I wanted to upgrade to this bike!

Another KLR, another inmate:

I am so bad at names... I already forgot your name! Good talking to you today, hope we can ride together sometime.

I split from Charles after breakfast and headed to Fishing creek road to try some more dirt on the new KLR suspension:


A nice day on the KLR! Looking forward to BWDR next weekend. I'm planning on heading down on the KLR early on Thursday.

Probably around 10:45. My meanderings through farm country took a bit of extra time. As it was, I had to cut those meanderings short so we could get there at a decent time.

Glad you enjoyed the roads, Tom. I hope my pace wasn't too slow for you. Glad they were still serving breakfast when we decided we were hungry. Food wasn't bad at all. Much better than I remember from previous trips up there.

I pretty much employed the same route tactic heading home as I did getting us there, only this time I stayed north of 322. Awesome ride just picking my way through farm country. Hope your ride home was as nice!

We must have just missed each other as I rolled out about then.

Had a nice ride in from West Chester.
- Mortonville rd is a very nice ride.

Out of Ephrata, I took 322 to 117. 177 is beautiful and has some nice twists. Took Mt Wilson rd and meandered down to Columbia where I took the Lincoln Hwy over to Shoe House road to check this out.


The best riding of the day began shortly after leaving the Shoe house. Prayer Mission rd, New Bridgeville rd and Furnace rd being of notable mention.

Then I took the Norman Wood Bridge back across teh river and wandered back to DE.

Hack, BWDR hand off is fine.

Blew a turn on 250 during the S500 on the hack. Misjudged speed and camber. Sidecar wheel went up and before I could throw my weight on that peg I shot straight across the oncoming lane, into a ditch and stopped with the rig vertical against the cliff face. Tweaked the front pretty good. Muscled the bars and forks back to some sembelenace of straight and carried on at a more conservative pace and style. A real Oh Shit moment.
