No, in Driftwood, near the RR tracks.
Yup...it looked familiar. One of my favorite dirt roads is Ridge Road out of Keating Summit....it'll eventually aim you down towards Driftwood. Down on 120 towards Renovo is the State Forest office. Great forest maps available there so you don't get lost on their really great graded gravel roads.
Everybody says OEM Trailwings aren't very good for anything other than mild off-road duty, so was not sure what to expect when I came to this.
So, I stayed to the very edge, out of the softest part and made it thru with no nap!
Then came to the place I was looking for.
200 miles, 30 on interstate....the rest on 2 lane and dirt.
Just like I like.
And all part of my preparation!
@scootac They are MOPEDS not scooters :) haha Yep that was us!! We had about 6 people make it out for the weekend. Some from Philly, Connecticut and Massachusetts. We had a blast, rode about 85 miles on Saturday which was a lot for the little bikes. I took a lot of pictures with disposable cameras but I need to develop. Here are a few I took with my phone.
Did you ride up to Hyner lookout....or push 'em?
I was in the area Saturday.
SQUIRREL: Balzy ride on the tiddlers! Old school too....disposable camera !!?? Yup...Hyner View can't be faked (photoshopped). And beautiful downtown Renovo!
@scootac We must have just missed you!! We actually rode up Seven Mile road from Young Womans Creek to Dry Run! Such a beautiful day to be out.
It really was an adventure riding around. Amazingly we all made it up to Hyner solely on engine power. Besides, who pushes?... It's a moped so you can PEDAL if needed! The ride down was much quicker, one guy in our group just put his moped into bike mode (Honda mopeds have a lever that disengages the belt from engine) and just coasted the whole way down. We all decided this needs to be an annual event.
Took the pic at 7 Mile just after 3 on Saturday.
As many times as I've ridden up to Hyner, I've never had my bike up on the wall! Ride them or lift them up there?
Ah ok, I think we were at the Green Lantern drinking Busch and eating frog legs by then lol. We lifted them up there. My Puch Maxi is about 100lbs with a full tank . We got a lot of funny looks and thumbs ups from other visitors! But we are all used to that.
Here is another pic my friend sent to me, we asked some kid to take a group picture. That's me in the green jacket, clearly excited that we made it up!
Nice pic.....damn hooligans!!!
Tweaked that photo a bit.
Holy cow that looks so much better! THANK YOU!
I took my two disposable cameras to CVS yesterday, but I guess all the stores just mail them out to get developed at some lab. No one actually does the "1 hour" in house processing anymore. It's a 2-3 week wait. I might start a separate thread once I get them and do a little moped rr about the weekend. I'm excited to see how they come out.
They have these new things.....they call them 'digital cameras'......and you can see your photo.....RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
Even an old fart like me has converted.
Or.....maybe your whole trip theme was 'Old School' with the mopeds, film cameras......and the Green Lantern?
I didn't even know they still sold the disposables.
Put up your RR when you get 'em!
Hahaha I mainly brought them because it can be cumbersome to use a phone for pictures when riding. Take your gloves off, unlock the phone, open camera app. All assuming you have any battery left. If you are using your phone as GPS it can be annoying too. Disposable was so easy, point n shoot! Plus I had no cell service in the area so my phone mostly stayed turned off in my back pack.
But yes, the pictures will look old school which goes along with the 70s/80s bikes and the lost-in-time setting of Renovo!
I just like busting balls!
I rode my FJR to the Nelsonville cemetery once. Damn rally master made it a bonus location in the Mason Dixon 20/20 a couple of years back. Real treat on a sport tourer.
Should not have been too bad coming in from Pottersdale end.
Not too bad. About 6 miles in then back out if I recall. What made it tricky was that to claim the bonus you and your "partner" and your bike all had to be in the picture which in my case was my g/f at the time and then we had to switch stuff around to get her bike in her picture. Fortunately a family in a RZR side by side came ripping down the road and stopped to see if we needed help! Dad made his son get out and take our pictures for us. As we were getting ready to pull out and leave another rally rider rolled in for her pic. Rachel was riding on her own and needed a pic of her with the 3 foot long stuffed chili pepper that was her "partner" for the event. I pulled over and dismounted then took Rachel's camera and took the pic for her.
