Was that enough capital R's in the title? I don't think I missed any.

Anyhow, I know I know...this isn't per se the right place, but in an effort to be seen, I wanted to throw the idea out there of a pre-Carlisle R drive in either North East PA or SE/Phila area. I have done a little searching online and this seems to be the highest concentration of nice roads to drive in the Keystone state. Not to mention, I think we've have some nice success in these areas in the past in terms of turnout. I am happy to do the legwork, but I vote a weekend in April other than the 25th-26th (busy that one).

How about Saturday the 18th or Sunday the 19th of April? There are a few potential routes we could take according to some scenic driving websites I have found. We could stop for pics, enjoy the signs of spring (like budding trees and heat soak), and enjoy something to eat and some good company after.

Discuss...

My own feeling is that since a meet there just occurred that we should try someplace different. I have found a couple of places in say the Allentown area for instance that might offer some cool relatively unpopulated roads. Motorcycle riders have this stuff pretty well figured out and I have been reading some of their sites. Thoughts?

Being originally from the rural areas around allentown those roads are hit or miss - there is a lot more traffic than you expect and they are not very well cared for - that said some are AWESOME. Which ones were you thinking? http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (Bender)

Just saw this (per Mikey) and thought it'd be more for your central folks


We have had a decent turnout from the NJ folks over here (might want to try to change the title to accommodate???) when we had done go-karting in Allentown. It was a good time, but a bit pricey for some folk. There are a few 'local' gems, but it all really depends on the weather and what kind of interests/expectations people have.

That being said, I'm more than likely in, even after probably going to the April 5th meet
