Would you believe I rode it today and it quit? Unidentified problem. So I won't be bringing it. Better here than where I was last year.

No wee would not throw tomatoes at your two stroke. We would just put you last in line. And if you passed anybody....WHAPPOOO.

Of course if it's a Yammi V4 or a s-Suzuki RG500 or Water buffalo or a TZ750 you will be looooooooong gone. 😏

Bunch of nice looking bikes there, and pretty countryside.

The riders look like hard cases, but other than that .... !

Great photos, places, people, bikes smile
The frosty Norton saddle reminds us of a TSMR of a few years ago.

You got me looking through Google stuff to find about the Austin Dam - http://uncoveringpa.com/austin-dam-ruins

Again courtesy of Google maps found Slate Run

And of course I do remember the whereabouts of Coudersport on Pa 6

Once again my education has been improved beerchug
Thank you gentlemen all bigt
