    The Rock is between Snow Shoe and South Renovo. It's a nice ride! There are a couple places that can bite you though! And from now on, beware of deer!!!
    144 continues beyond Renovo and is worth a try too.

    Thanks! I'm planning a trip to concentrate on your state. It's sounds great and not too far for me from Ontario. I spend a lot of time doing bigger trips to NC and area, but I'd like to have a fun place to tour in a shorter time span.

    A fair number of people have come down from Ontario to ride the hills and curves. And after a trip from Port Huron to Niagara Falls one time, I understand why!

    I ride this area all the time, ( I live just outside of Williamsport Pennsylvania ) If you see a guy on a white1290 KTM super adventure give me a wave. In fact I think I will ride to Deb's cross fork inn tomorrow for lunch.

    Next time your near Karthus stop at the River Side Bar and Grill to eat. That had some good food the last time we stopped there. Obviously it is right beside the river at the bridge and rail road tracks.

    Years ago, a group of 25-30 of us would canoe from Karthaus to Renovo, camping across the river ftom the Riverside on Friday night. I don't remember they had food....but I know they had cold beer!!!
    Good times on those trips!!!!

    Great area, also from Ontario and must have stayed in Williamsport in the least 7 times in the past 5 years. Always great for an extended weekend.

    However, once the College Football Starts it is almost impossible to find a room downtown.

    Love the roads just north East of Williamsport near the Park.

    I used to go to Cougar Bobs years ago. There was no bar stools. The bartender said they had to take them out because the patrons were beating each other with them. That was fine with me cause I'm a little dude and really ain't into getting clubbed in the head with a bar stool buy a 300lb. Drunken hillbilly. I don't know what they was always fighting over. The woman were just down rite scary in that place. :lol3

    The last time I was there the (woman?) standing beside me was smoking a cigar and looked like a MMA fighter.

    We were in Benezette Hotel for lunch one Sunday....a rather 'stocky' woman came in....bellied up to the bar....open carrying a revolver.

    :hmmmmm

    All was good.
    Always interesting how polite and respectful folks can be at times.

    Thanks for the info. I did a route up that way and it was a great trip. The ride through Kartheus, Sinnemahoning and Emporium is great. Next time, I'll have to poke around the area instead of just riding through. PSPAMLbigloop10417.jpg

    I rode to State College the past several days.
    Not for the roads.
    Or the scenery.
    Not for the food.

    For this.

    Volunteered for five shifts helping people find names and being a Wall Guard the past two days.

    Just replaced the starter in my DR. Tried to clean up the old one, but too much corrosion, common issue with them, combined with no grease from the factory. What a difference with the new one!
