Two Black 650's in Avis,Pa.

I seen two black 650's loaded up pretty good with gear turning around under the overpass in Avis, Pa. I think it was on saturday afternoon 8-2-08. They headed towards Lock Haven on 150.

That was us (Me and Kayakman) pulling a Uturn under the overpass! The road deadended where it wasn't supposed to but no matter, we found our way to Route 44 (via Woolrich, where we dropped some money at the store.)

We spent 4 days riding in N PA...great roads and am looking forward to returning. Lucky you to live in that area.
Just got home about 2 hours ago.

We had a GREAT time riding lots of twisty roads...something that is in short supply around here in southwestern Ontario. I know we'll be back again. It was only a 9 hour ride from DuBois to home (near Sarnia) with stops for lunch, breaks and including crossing the border at Buffalo.

I've ridden PA before but not in many years. I've also backpacked the AT in PA and this motorcycle trip was also about checking out some more backpacking trails that I've read about, for doing in the future. (Loyalsock, Black Forest, Old Loggers Path, Golden Eagle trails etc.)

It's funny...although we saw thousands of bikes, we didn't see one other VStrom the whole time we were in NY and PA but I wondered if maybe someone from here had seen us. The first thing I saw when I got on the forum was the title of TimberWulfs post and knew that someone had!

Edit...oops, I posted under Kayakmans login.

Ya'll get back this way look us up. We have some great hikes, I personally have always liked worlds end SP, where the loyalsock trail is. I live near Ricketts Glen SP, it would be a good day stop for ya'll if you enjoy hiking. There is a gorge there that contains 22 waterfalls, the highest one is 103' in an evergreen setting. Its about 45 minutes from worlds end state park. There are also many lesser known falls that only the locals mostly know of.
Next time down try route 6, route 144, and route 120. they are in central northern PA. In the fall the place to see is along 144, there is an elk trail containing about 120 miles I think.Its a vehicle tour with viewing stations set up along the route. Benezette is the home of the pennsylvania elk heard, and you can hear them bugle in the fall.
Also near ricketts glen there are many old covered bridges ya'll may enjoy.
Look me up next time your down this way and perhaps I can show ya some cool places you may enjoy.

At redrock corners, turn right on old tioga turnpike, go 2 miles and take left on old county road, go 2 miles and look for tan ranch with boat in carport on left, the driveway is paved and circles the house, big stonewalls out back and pond. Stop in next time you out this way. I put ya in my buddy list.

The Loyalsock Trail is actually the first trail I intend to do. I have already purchased the guide and map. I may not be able to do a thru hike but could possibly have 2-3 days to backpack as much as I can.
I also want to do the dayhike Golden Eagle trail.

This trip we rode a couple loops that included:

the #449 down from NY, #144 to Renovo, #120 to Lock Haven, #44 and #414, up the #15 to #6 to spend the night in Mansfield and the next day...

#6 to Wellsboro, down #287 and #284 to Waterville, #44 to an unknown connector road to #120, up #872 at Sinnemahoning and #607, down #155 and #120 to Driftwood and east on #555 where we spent the night at Dubois.

Then home the next day via #219 into NY and country roads into Buffalo where we crossed the border and rode another 250 miles home.

So we saw a good cross section of N Central PA.

I looooove covered bridges!:-D I think I have seen (and taken a photo of) every one still left in Vermont and have devoted whole bike trips to tracking them down. I got pretty good at finding the off the beaten path ones.
I'd like to get on to some of the dirt roads you guys were talking about on one of the PA threads in the Mid Atlantic forum.
