    For those who may want to stop and smell the roses, I've attached a 2 hour covered bridge tour.

    What he said, 11 is not fun, east side of the river for sure. Not faster, but more interesting.

    That said, if you like corners the roads E of the river offer much more too.

    In all fairness, though, 11 does have a large array of adult "book stores" since it's a major trucking route!

    True, but you can also travel further west. The country roads west of Liverpool to Jersey Shore are fun then twist yourself back through Lewisburg.

    If I was coming up from the south I would not want to miss Rt 125.
    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    True. 144/44/120 are some of my favorite roads in the state. I'd still stay on 147 rather than 11 as much as possible. perhaps crossing the river at Lewisburg, Sunbury, or Duncannon.

    Agree once you get N, the roads that traverse the ridges from Wport, to the SW are all wonderful roads

    Here is one S of BBurg, for you 5%ers that love a lot of small back roads that twist and turn in a technical fashion. Stay awake, lots of surprises if you are sleeping, lots of fun if not. Includes the 125 in both directions.

    If you don't have a GPS, is there a way to view the map to see the route on the GPS files that were posted? I'm looking for some nice rides to ride while I am at the rally. Thanks.

    BTW.. for those of us that are Mapsource fluent (whatever that means...) Check out GPSvisualizer.com

    You can instantly convert your .gpx format files into elevations, jpegs, google earth (KMZ)... yahoo maps, USGS topos, all sorts of interesting formats.
