    Just a quick correction- Pine Creek doesn't carve its way to the New Jersey shore, but rather to the town of Jersey Shore, PA and the Susquehanna River.

    Looks like FUN! past couple years I've done Roadrunner Magazine's Touring Weekend... might have to switch it up and come up to Wellsboro this year! Bring my R100RS for a change... since it's more or less local.

    Wellsboro is a great place for a rally. The riding is awesome! There have been a few BYOB's in Galeton about 20 miles from there. PA 144 is one of my favorite roads. The Austin dam ruins, Wycoff Run and 555 are in day riding distance as well.

    I think I have to put this on my calendar. It has been a few years since I have been to a RA National.

    Will there be organized riding to get the most of a days ride without really thinking about navigating, mostly road? I know GS Giants likes to do their getting dirty and challenge rides was just wondering the options if I do come down.

    They will always have ride routes available. Probably organized ones as well. However in that area. Just about any road that runs south off of US 6 is worth riding. Great riding area! Some of the best roads in PA! Go explore!

    I've been to lots of rallies but never an RA event............
    I'm assuming they'll have food vendors on site?
    Their website/registration is short on details.

    The riding up there is great, as it is in most of PA, BTW. I've ridden up there quite a bit. Going east or west out of Wellsboro on US hiway 6, going south you get into PA's Endless Mountains. A little further west, most of the roads wind their way down to the west branch of the Susquehanna. Dirt roads up there are endless, but the road riding is great too.

    Jason, tons of food and motorcycle vendors. Plus, some entertainment at night.
    Good times.
