The 7 mtns campout thing? Probably. I did it last year and Wiggus mapped out a really nice ride. I sold the little dual sport my son rode last year and replaced it with a GS500, so if he wants to go I'll probably do the road ride.

Well i'm taking my yello DRZ400 and I will most likely show up early Sat morning. My DR650 is in dire need of a rear tire.

Will you be on the yelloStrom? We should hook up and drink some coffe and swap some Flecky stories!

well I am now riding an F800GS. Got to get past the 600 mile service mark, then maybe it can cool off a little and I think I will be able to plan a couple days riding.

What's left?

Alt day 1 from Hancock NY to south of Wellsboro (connecting to current route): I think MoBill migth be taking a look at this in a week or so once he gets through his active duty part of his job.

Day 3 part from Emporium to Black Moshannon: I think madmaximum was going to look at this when he had time.

Day 5. This is the extra day added when the original day 4 was changed from a long road ride into a great route by Wiggus!
Day 5's route is wide open to anybody that wants to make it. Start Greenwood Furnace -> Finish near Michaux with camping (suggestion: pine grove furnace state park?). I have a feeling there is not much stone roads between Greenwood and Michaux, so if you took some twisty roads down to Mixhaux, then added all the stone roads you wanted at Michaux it would be perfect!

I personally want to revisit to the day 2 route on the west side of the canyon to fix a routing error we had.

My bike is running again...better than before. Errrr..was running again. I lost a brake caliper bolt on Saturday. Waiting for a replacement. If I don't go out of town this weekend maybe I can get some of Day 3 covered.

From ADV">

Day 5: i think RockinRog knows a lot of that area. Suggestion: After coming over the ridge from Greenwood to Allensville, head east across the valley to Front Mountain Road, head north and take Jacks Mountain Road over the next ridge eastward. That'll save you having to ride on Rt 22; kinda sucks.

Maybe Rog knowns a way up onto the next ridge, Tuscarora, without having to go all the way down to the southern end of the ridge. Unless that's more fun.

I would say go into Mc Veytown then up over the mountain on Licking Creek Road then on to Licking Creek Drive... I will have to look on a map at your intended destination... if you want to go south I would say Winn Gap road to Pine Ridge Road to Black Log Road....I will take a closer look tonight..I dont't have a GPS so I can't be of much help as far as the gps route..Its on the list of things to get, but the funds havent been appropriated yet.
