Ricketts Glen Camping Trip Nov 5th-6th


UPDATE: Ricketts Glen State Park was full so we are now camping at Council Cup Campground (212 Ruckle Hill Road, Wapwallopen, PA 18660).

So the season is coming to a close and as most of you know I have been sans motorcycle pretty much all summer. We also haven’t had a camping trip since the Norton meet and the weather isn’t going to hold out much longer. While this is a bit far out for the forecast, the weather is anticipated to be mid to low 60’s during the day and mid 40’s at night which is perfect moto camping weather.

Tentative Plan: Meet at One Shot Coffee at 9am (side street and easier parking than La Colombe). Kickstands up at 10am. Blast 476 to Jim Thorpe. Grab lunch and a beer then get lost on backroads making our way to Ricketts Glen State Park by sundown. Sunday we get up, hit the Brass Pelican for breakfast and get lost going south before hitting the highway back to Philly.

    Weather forecast for Benton, PA is currently 56°/40° Saturday and 55°/36° Sunday. Definitely not the warmest weather but definitely not cold enough to freeze on the bikes. Bundle up and Ed, make sure you pack your warmest prescription diabetes socks.

    Steve and I rolled out of Rothrock in the 30s a couple weeks ago. Even his race carb’d Triumph started while I was doing wheelies down the nearest fire road. No big deal. I’m still on the fence however

This is the beginning of my solo seat on my cb500t. I’m going for a super low, slim and minimal seat that fits with the curves of the tank. Cutting out paper templates to get certain measurements. Laid out the design on 16 gauge sheet metal. muscled some bends. Stance
