    Well sheeeeet, it's that time again. Time to start thinking about riding a motorcycle to State College, PA in February.

    Is it a good idea? Probably not.

    Is it a good time? Oh hell yeah.

    As always, we will be staying at the Imperial Motor Inn. Gather Friday, have a few beers. Ride Saturday if the weather supports it and close down the Phyrst Saturday night.

    Who are the idiots gonna be this year?

    I am back in classes to get my Reactor Operator License. One of the new guys recently graduated from Penn State, and he does remember seeing us riding a few times. He thinks we are all nuts and loves it.

    Damn low lifes...they should not be messing with such a high class establishment.:rofl


    Actually, to be honest, I would not mind staying at a different hotel. The problem is that the Imperial is the only place that has the required combination of price and distance from the Phyrst. If we were willing to either pay cab fare, or not do the Phyrst on Saturday night (:huh), then we could find a different hotel. Everything else within walking distance of the downtown bars is $100+ per night.

    I like some of the comments after the story:

    "This place seems to attract a certain kind of clientele."

    No worries, the ICE insanity just hasn't set in yet.

    Where are we going to ride to this year?

    Last year we went to Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield. Decent burgers and several options for routing to get there from State College.

    It is difficult to plan a ride this far out. The weather will have a huge bearing on what we actually do. Year before last, the wind was so bad that we ended up not riding after lunch. Spent a lot of time fucking around at the hotel.
