    I posted about this in the GTA thread and it generated some interest...so I'm starting an official thread here for the Ontario crowd that is interested.

    We don't have to travel together, but I figure that a group of us may want to. AND since it's a fend-for-yourself event, it would be fun to have a group to pitch in with for meals and such.

    It is in Northern PA and is about 360 km's from Waterloo and 300 from Downtown Hamilton - so pretty close.

    I'm in and plan on heading down sometime Friday and plan on camping. I'll update this thread to keep a tally of who's going and we'll make plans as it goes.....still 3 months away.

    I hope we'll get a good group together.


    Here's the link the official rally thread.

    So thats about a 6 hour ride.

    It's also very close to the PA grand canyon, lots of groomed dirt roads south of the park

    Well according to the op in that thread you could ride a Gold Wing on those roads so your options are open.

    Indeed.

    But broadsliding a Gold Wing isn't as much fun as feet-up broadsliding a horny GSPD.

    Love that pic. British bike mags at their finest. :thumb

    Unfortunatley, the pilot in that pic was later killed in a riding accident.


    Sad but true.

    I have been keeping an eye on the BYOB thread for some time now and hope to be heading down there.

    Drif10 I see you have posted up, are you going? Maybe something to be discussed in near future.

    Anyone else east of Toronto (Kingston area) going?
