    Thanks John. 666 was in good shape with really good pavement for the first 7 miles or so until there's a sign directing traffic to 66, and I think most traffic goes that way. After that turnoff the road is narrower and less maintained, but I thought it was OK. I was going a little slower due to the wet conditions, but didn't bounce around too much. The shortcut from 666 to Tionesta was pretty beat up, but that's more a local road.

    Great roads up there for an S bike.

    Day 2 was definitely better.
    But the oatmeal thing, dude, no bacon?!

    Seriously though, kudos to you not bailing. The weather was not at all ideal.

    Mmmm, bacon. My cholesterol level appreciates dried fruits, nuts, berries and twigs. And anything else that tastes worse than bacon.

    What's the saying, "a rainy day on a motorcyle is better than a dry day at work"?

    Excellent ride report, Terrence! But I told you....you need a GS!

    Speaking of which, the GS Giants are having a Fall(down) in Marienville this weekend. Sadly, I've had to cancel my plan to attend but it's a great place to ride, both on and off road.

    Love the fall colors and beautiful pics!

    great memories

    thank you Terence your trip log and photos brought back many great memories of trips taken with my riding buddies over the years, now no longer with us, although living in Ontario ,after immigrating from N Ireland in 1980 ,I missed the twisty challinging roads,I found them in PA.seeing your photos of your r1100s makes me want to remove the rt fairing and reinstall the rs fairing on my 1977r100s/rs, and dance along 666 ,120,59 and down to and around Williamsport,once again thank you. Jimmy

    Excellent Pictures...

    Glad you enjoyed some of the Awesome Dirt Roads PA has to offer.

    I plan to retrace you steps some as soon as springs rolls around... Or if the weather stays the way it is maybe sooner...

    I enjoyed the awesome dirt roads, not so much the awesome mud roads.

    There's definitely good riding in PA so enjoy your trip.

    I would think you start to get some spring in April and definitely in May. Certainly sooner than VT.
