This past weekend I rode route 6 through PA. We left NJ Friday 1 PM, rode to Scranton PA and visited Steam town. Picked up route 6 and rode to Towanda, stayed at the Fairfield Inn. We were up early and headed over the Cox Harley Davidson in Mansfield PA, enjoyed their Chrome through the Canyon ride, they served lunch and drinks. They service crew there fixed up one of our my friends Sportster, the one side cover had a broken clip.
With the clip fixed we headed up to Bradford PA to visit the Zippo Lighter Case Knife museum, finishing out day to in Jamestown, NY. Only hotel we could find, America's Best Value Inn. Hotel is old, but the rooms were clean and continental breakfast was adequate, price is affordable.
Sunday morning we headed out and rode out to Presque Isle state park. After a swim in Lake Erie we enjoyed lunch and headed out to Kinzua Dam and then the Kinzua Viaduct. Then a hard push back to Towanda back at the Fairfield Inn. Monday we followed route 6 back home. Trip meter read 963 miles.
My V star ran flawlessly, overall it is comfortable and a smooth ride. I am going to explore putting a taller windshield on the bike as well as a set of hard bags for storage. The leather bags were Okay, but larger hard bags would be better.
One thing about taking a trip like this is all the really cool people you meet. We stopped in the town of Coudersport as one of the bikes had a loose side cover clip that was very bothersome. One of the guys in our group is a mechanic and had the foresight to pack zip ties and other assorted items for quick repairs. While we were standing there fascinated with a dilapidated house across the street from us. An elderly gentleman approached us and started a conversation with me, after a while I inquired about the house, my new friend Irving explained to me that a young man was murdered there and no one has lived there since. Found this web site about the house. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...d=0CJABEPwdMAo
Here is a link to my photo album, I shot several hours of video as well, that is going to take me a while to edit into on video.
