I heard that some central Pennsylvanians were going to be riding on Saturday of Independence Day weekend.  It is not insignificant or irrelevant that Kathi was going to be at Fort Bragg with one set of grandbabies over that weekend.

So I got the details from the Guzzigruppenfuhrer, Jay (of Palmyra).  

Jay had a fine route on some of the super roads in the area.  If you are a map geek as I am, here is what the had in mind:

That sounded fine to me, and, tho I had been on most of the “inbound leg” last April with Larry LaHue on our Norges, repeating that, especially as it would be in a different direction than last time, sounded mighty fine to me.  Pennsylvania has grand riding roads.

But, rather than riding to Palmyra for the launch, I arranged to meet the group in Ickesburg, and continue with them from there.

Here’s some pix of that ride and post-ride activities, and the return home:

As always, probably best in "slideshow" and "full screen," especially if, inexplicably, you like captions.  Rolling Eyes

Happy Independence Day, U.S.A.!

Good read Bill, again.
Seems to be a plethora of Guzzi's on tow trucks lately.

Bill, Next time you come down that way go thru ft. Indiantown gap, look for a road named goldmine road. It's a real hiden gem. Whenever I ride north on 81 I always pop off the highway there, ride goldmine, and then take 209 back to 81

Did it.

Completely by accident, as I was lost from the group and headed to Palmyra.

I actually loved IGMR as a ROTC cadet in -- gasp, 1970 Shocked  Still recall hearing the sounds of "To the Colors" wafting up from the main cantonment while on an exercise up on the mountain -- and was surprised and pleased when I ended up there unintentionally.

Better, it had been recently repaved.  

You are right ... so fine.

Bill
