Talking Sorta

WNY north of Bradford, PA but do most of my riding in north central PA because of the nicer roads and cheaper gas. Be out this weekend with or without my cold weather fearing riding buddies and they're the ones with ALL the heated gear.

I actually grew up not far from Bradford and do some riding up that way every now and then. I'm looking into a Wee to replace my vstar currently. I'll let ya know when it gets a little warmer (I don't like cold either) when I'll be up that way.

I'm from Durham, NC, but Ill be passing through Bradford on wednesday on my way to buffalo for thanksgiving.

I was browsing around a bit to see if there are members from that area, just in case I break down on my way. It's been known to happen...

Got out with a couple of buddies yesterday and rode thru Bradford and up along the Kinzua reservoir back into NY then down the west side of the reservoir to the Horse Shoe Inn for eats and to watch the Bills take a spanking. Place was crawling with hunters in camo as it was the second day of deer season. Rode home thru Ellicottville and Great Valley, NY with temps in the mid 40's but didn't turn the heated jacket liner on all day. Good ride and hope to get in another one next Sunday but I expect it will be the last for the season. Might head down Pitt way next spring to look up Crazy Jake Fischer at his shop on RT. 8 south of Butler, PA. I think you'll like the Wee as it's just about the best all around do it all kinda bike out there. Maybe we'll get together for a ride someday as there's lots of good riding in this region.

Not any more :bom_cry2: I lived in Regent Square for 2 years and in that area for another 8 on top of that.

What I miss:

1) Snow
2) Friendly Neighborhoods
3) Primanti Brothers
4) Stillers
5) Pens
6) My old Dojo

What I don't miss:

1) Summer
2) Humidity
3) Lack of Health conscious people (I used to get made fun of a lot for being a runner)

huh. Not sure why I posted here now. Well I never did find another Vstrom rider in Pittsburgh when I lived there...Here I have quite a few friends from this forum who hang out and help work on bikes and go on rides together.

I'm out near the airport. My day rides generally go west and north. I can't stand going anywhere near town. I commute 79 daily, year round. When the roads are really bad, (ice and snow), you may see some moron running 79 on a KLR, that would be me also.

Riding around town is certainly brutal. One thing I miss about living in the south hills is that I could escape to Ohiopyle pretty quickly. Hope ya have some studs on that KLR

I think I've seen you in my travels... I'm from about 1.5 hrs north, Meadville. There might not be an abundance of V-Strom riders in the burgh but with the import dealer in Wexford there's a bunch of those running around. My riding keeps me up this way for the most part, commuting to Youngstown each day. So far I've only seen one other strom up my way, I think the guy commutes between maybe New Castle and Greenville... black bike with aluminum cases.
