Hi All -

Thought I’d start a thread on this. I’ve got a weekend in Oct that I’ll be tied up (not sure which one just yet), but let’s get a conversation going…..

Who’s in ? When?

Cheers,

Steve

Bill couldnt squeeze the whole prepaid amount into his own tank so he tried to squeeze the rest into mine... It almost worked .. I only got 50 cent back in change.
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Event though we had such a late lunch we snuck in another steak dinner at the Motel's restaurant... It was also very tasty and Richard chatted up the waitress again and she told us her woes and her future which sounds as though she wont be serving us next year if she has her way....
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Another evening/night downing a few drinks back at our rooms and I was probably not the best company as the juorney and the days ride caught up to me and I was falling out of my chair tired... As in "checking my eyelids for holes"

I think everyone called it quits by 12:30 or so ... The plan was to have an early breakfast before we parted ways...

[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

BIll didnt have any fettling to do so I rushed my shower so people were waiting for me ... Although they were ... A quick jaunt to the fantastic diner down the road and another fine breakfast was consumed.

This is where some of us parted ways and the rest went back to the motel to load up and pack.... Bill let take the A10 for a ride and I will tell you that is one fine motorcycle... I really do need to have an A10 some day .... Maybe after I get some of my current project done .... Unless one falls in my lap .... So many bikes and so little time...

If you have not been to the OSMR then you are missing out of a fantastic time .... Be there or be square !!!

It was indeed a great pleasure to ride with friends again.. Great bunch of guys.. Good food great roads and a few beverages...Not to mention a lot of laughs over the weekend...

I got there on Friday afternoon to find Bill at the hotel . I had already found part of the main group leaving the restaurant of the BIG burger... So they knew I had made it to town...

Bill's bikes are lovely and that A10 is now on my wish list

Richard has a way with the waitresses .... We all get great service and wow what a meal
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Bill does a little fettling before breakfast ... Lucky Bill found a Motoblat dealer in Coudersport to replace his dead battery.

Bill has some competition in the eating department
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Bill does a little more fettling after breakfast... This time fuel line and speedo cable ... But both bikes run a treat ... Id have either one...

Our first stop on our lovely ride was the Austin Dam. I had never heard of it before but it was a bad scene in 1911. The poorly built dam broke and killed 78 people and devastated the town of Austin. Its quite sobering to see the huge pieces of concrete that got pushed around in the torrent...

It wouldn't be the OSMR without our usual stop at the Black Forest Inn for lunch... Although it was getting closer to dinner time ... Had a very tasty local IPA from New Trails Brewery out of Williamsport.... Very tasty indeed... Although I discovered that we were only 9 miles from a fantastic restaurant that I ate at a month ago, so I think that we may break tradition next year if the gang approve of the switch

early September is probably the best time, maybe the weekend of the 11th? I'll have to check with the motel and see if they're still in operation.

One State Mountain Ride.. A guided group ride hosted by MikeG.

Coudersport, Pa area. North Western part of the state.

Group stays at local motel…very clean and reasonable rates. ( Laurelwood)

Ride loop is around 200 miles with gas and lunch stop.

Nice roads with little traffic.

Gordon.

My plan was to slyly find out what Gordon's route North was going to be (it couldn't be far from me in any case), and be waiting on the side of the road on a twin as his single putted by, and just take off and follow him when he rode by ... but alas (well, not really "alas" in a complete sense since I will be at the beach that week with my grandchildren, but "alas" for the sake of a Britbike ride) it was not to be.

It wouldn’t be the same for me if he wasn’t there. To many empty seats as it is.

Gordon who knows the smart thing is to trailer but is really struggling with that idea. I’ve never been accused of being smart.

I missed that year......but good Lord willing and the creek don't rise I'll make this one.


Still not sure how I'll get there.......but I'm working on it.

I think it's safe to say this.....everyone is welcome. Don't let that rust/pitted spot or oil leak stop you..........most of the vintage that shows up wouldn't do that well in a show...( well Bob's bikes ARE immaculate) ....but are a hoot to be around. Worried about breaking down???? You wouldn't be the first or last to have that happen......it goes with the territory. You don't need to worry about being the slowest......I've got that covered.

Show up.......sit around and solve world problems......ride some very nice roads with little traffic and beautiful countryside.

Does Bill (aka no name man) really eat that big breakfast?

What will Bob bring and who's bike will he repair in the parking lot before the ride?

Will Richrd make a pass at EVERYONE who has a Ms or Mrs in front of their name?

Which bike breaks down first?

Will Gordon have another tire come off the rim at speed?

Only way you'll find out is to BE THERE........come on......ya know you want to.

We'll leave a light on for you.

Gordon

44F this morning. Should warm up quickly once the sun gets higher. A nice, late summer day for a ride. More photographic evidence from last yesterday and last night.

Richard, posting photos from a cell phone is easy, but you gotta have the right phone. 😉

Cheers,

Steve

over the years I have gone from taking pics of bikes to pics of inmates. I noticed a while back while looking at pictures from mid ohio and blowing rock that some of you look different now.?

This year I talked my stepson Mark into joining us, mainly because he had a new truck to pull the trailer. It is a tribute to your tolerance for welcoming him, as not only did he ride a hardly, but it had three wheels.

and so, in no particular order I present,,,,

Thanks fellows. Just didn’t see Steve’s beautiful bike and it usually stands out in a crowd. Mikes repaint…….I probably saw it at Windy’s but didn’t realize it was the same bike.
