Nice, Uncle Buck; thanks for sharing. Having spent quite a bit of time in the wonderful little city of Washington, south of Pittsburgh, I suggest that Pittsburghese is more dialect than accent. Carry a dictionary (and a towel to mop up after lunch at Primanti Bros.) and ride on ...

Aside from Dahntahn, you are blessed with some of the nicest motorcycle roads in the East. Scenic loops to "Hi-eh-pile" State Park, Laurel Highlands, Uniontown, Morgantown and Wheeling, WV, are entertaining on a Versys.

Difficult to enunciate during, and following, a Primanti Bros. lunch! Rode south of Chicago yesterday on way from Minneapolis to Shipshewana, IN. You have quite a commute from Pittsburgh.

We have our own eateries that are claimed to be the best anywhere.
My wife has a lot of family in St. Paul & whenever I come home I think I need to fire up the wood chipper. Going a little Fargo??
