Took a 3 day trip last week to Western NY and PA. What a hoot! You have to travel some distance from where I live to find good twisty roads, and PA is a failry close trip to some great places.
Two bikes: My V and my buddy on his Honda ST1300. And one car, a 2014 Ford Mustang convertible (which replaced his motorcycle, so he still likes to come along on "motorcycle" trips).
We crossed at Buffalo and headed for Letchworth State Park.
We made our way down South and had a great ride along route 44. The weather was a little unstable, pop up storm bursts all over the area. We seemed to be avoiding them, mostly just finding wet roads where it was clear that it recently rained. At one point it looked dark enough to don rain gear, but in the end we rode through only a brief stretch of rain.
We stopped for the night at Lock Haven, and lucked into the last available room at the Best Western.
Following a hearty morning breakfast at the hotel we headed out on Rt 120 and soon found ourselves on Hyner Mountain Run.
We took a few turns enjoying this tree canopy covered twisty road in both directions before moving on to 44 again and Hwys 6, 66, and even the Highway to Hell:
We stopped for the night in the town of Kane. Shopping around for beer, we learned a few things about the unique approach Pennsylvania takes regarding the sales of alcohol.
Our 3rd and final day opened to some cool damp weather and heavy fog. We saw lots of deer, mostly at the last and most uncomfortable second. Along 321(?) we encountered a stretch of gravel that seemed to go on quite a distance. The ST1300 does not really like the gravel, and I assure you the the shiny new Mustang hated it. Me and the V of course were in our element and I scouted way ahead to see where the pavement was. Eventually a traveller coming the other way assured us we were almost there and all was well again.
After stopping for breakfast and gas, most of the mist had burned off and we were able to enjoy the rest of the way up Hwy 62.
We enjoyed a great time on some nice roads with beautiful park and mountain scenery. It was just a short tour and the only one I'll sqeeze in this Summer, but what a great ride!
