    The off limits area at Hermys is another site to be seen.

    Moto Morini is in there.

    Not really..if they're not busy..ask Herm or Chris to show the collection of Moto Morini and (pre-Hinkley) Triumph parts that they have left.. However they have been advised about the Rally..so they are gearing up for that

    I saw them many times over the years including visiting Herm Sr. at the warehouse or Union House. He is a great cook.

    The main attraction for me in PA is the plethora of small twisty back roads available. There is some very nice, off the beaten path, technical stuff if you look for it.

    Speaking of Triumph's and MotoMorini, did you ever visit Guy Zerby's shop in Spring Mills (on PA 45)?

    The PC Hotel's fries are too big.......order a small.

    The Union House has nice Italian food but their crab cakes rock.

    I was up there about (2) years ago and he was kind enough to show me around his shop. There are still several never sold (pre-Hinkley) Triumphs out on his front show room. Might take another ride up there this summer now that I've recently picked up a '73 TR5T.

    If you do, check out the Elk Creek Cafe, which is listed in my road food thread.

    Mr. Zerby has to be in his 90's.......He's a walking history of the post WWII motorcycle business.

    And speaking of vintage motorcycles, Bob's Indian (now Bob's Honda) is just off of I-83 between Harrisburg and York. He has quite a few original Indians in the showroom - at least the last time I stopped in.

    Is that abandoned town with the burning vein of coal underneath it in the general area? I couldn't remember the name of it or which state.
