    New member from S.E. Pa

    Hello to all, I'm new to the Forum. I purchased a 2013 RT in Oct. and already have 4,600 miles already. To say I love this bike would be an understatement. I have some great trips planned for this summer.

    Tail of the Dragon for sure, was there last year on my Honda Shadow. Also plenty of two/three day trips in the mountains of Pa.

    Welcome, I pass through Elverson from time to time on my wanderings around SE PA. What bridge is that in your photo?

    Welcome Rob.
    I'm hoping to make it to Gettysburg, but unfortunately, it will not be this weekend with the BMWMOA event.

    Welcome, Robby!

    You may be interested in joining the Mid Atlantic Riders for breakfast at the Longwood Diner on Route 1 on May 11th. We meet the second saturday of each month for breakfast or lunch and a ride. Great group of people who get together and ride regularly. In fact, we just got back from a chilly weekend in West Virginia.

    Our website is currently under reconstruction so there is no current info there yet but email me for details. tracy@novacich.com

    Allo ....and welcome from northern Ontario, Canada. Your new ride looks GREAT....congrats. Keep logging the miles. If my wife had it her way, we would be riding one of those. She says she would rather travel on the back of an RT than our GS. They look so comfortable she says.....

    Welcome aboard! Plenty of fun roads for an RT to play on your way, also head west to southern York County, or up towards Fort Indian Town Gap and Rt 125 to Shamokin, a good day trip from your area. Also some great 1-2 night trips down to VW from S.E. PA, can run down 81 to get to the twisties quick, or take Rt 30 through Gettysburg west and drop down Rt 26 into MD and WV.

    Some great folks on this forum when you need tech advice or just about anything for that matter, just remember not to bring up religion, politics, guns, or breast feeding.....wait, that last one might not be on the list.....

    Anyway, enjoy the RT, beautiful bike!

    Tracy, I was down with 3 other non-GS riders the same weekend, saw one of your group members at the store at Seneca Rocks just as the rain was letting up Friday afternoon. We ended up cutting our trip short and headed home Saturday as it was a bit chilly to tent camp (for us anyway). Would have liked to run into you, been a few years since breakfast with Terrance on the way to Hermy's open house. Ride safe!

    John1961,
    I just did rt 125 from Pine Grove to Shamokin. Wow! What a road, I thought I was on the Tail of the Dragon!

    I was on it last weekend and a single digit IQ nitwit on a sports bike passed me on the right, in my lane in a tight curve. Probably 15 inches between us and we were going well over 50 at the time. If our mirrors had hit it would have smeared both of us.

    Gold Mine road between 443 and 324 is outstanding. If you want some suggestions on rides west of the Susquehanna, let me know. I know pretty much every good twisty over here.

    I really like Rt 9 from Berkely Springs WV down through PawPaw. Then Rt 50 to Winchester Va and on to Rt 11 back to C-burg
