A rally setup from another website I frequent and have for years. I headed out to Harrisburg, PA on Wed last week. It was a chilly 45* day for riding but I had a sked to keep. So I headed out...

These 2 old bikes pulled up at the hotel from northern NY. A 1950 HD pan head and a 1941 indian. Both all original with the exception that the indian had some new gaskets and valves. And yes the black dirt on the tins is grease covering rust spots to keep it from rusting more. EPIC bikes!

I had such a blast. I truely think that when you mix yourself with different, interesting, and compatiable people it just makes these adventures so much more! I've been to better place or better motorcycle destinations and didn't have as good of a time.

Hope you enjoyed the pics and story. See you all out there!

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing. I hope the kid was alright. Really cool set of twisties there, what happen? target fixation? lack of skill? or perhaps over his head.

Sorry for no more pics of Mrs Hottie. No more pics of me either so we'll call it a wash.

As far as the kid going down... there was probably a 20-25 ft elevation drop on the right handed decreasing radious. His brother said the rear tire washed out as he was riding behind him. However, I'm not sure... with that much drop, all the weight would be on the front tire PERIOD. I guess there is some normal lateral scraps on his knee pucks like his knee was down but then a vertical set of marks when he crashed. Who knows. He was fine and after a bit of adjusting we got him back on the road. When he got home the next day they finished the make shift repairs and the bike is solid again.

Glad you all enjoyed the pics.

Thanks! Its not fast like my 9R was, its not as cool as the chopper (or as fast), but it pulls in more women then all them combined. I think they just look at the back seat and say... "yeah I'll ride that". Then they're hoooked.
