1—MAY 25 & 26 ( Saturday & Sunday): BRITISH BIKE BONANZA - sold out.
Five British bikes stand ready to transport you to Ole’ Blighty. We’ll head south to Front Royal, dine at an old English Tavern (warm beer optional), and sample Skyline Drive. Shifters on the right, where God intended, not an electric starter to be found, oil leaks, good(?) vibrations, and fun at a (necessarily) relaxed pace. The amazing thing? These were once considered state of the art. EXPERIENCE THIS!           


2—JUNE 28, 29, 30 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday): JOHNSTOWN JAPS
I know; that’s totally PI, but the alliteration is irresistible. This three-day trip features up to 8 Japanese bikes. You chose the pace. The shifters are on the left, electric starters abound, they don’t leak, and they ‘never’ break. The route cuts right across the Eastern Continental Divide: swervery assured. The destination is fascinating, with its fully functional funicular and haunting history. (Google it)                      


3—JULY 20, 21 22 (Saturday, Sunday, Monday): WEST VIRGINIA GYRO
Ah, the allure of 6 Motocilette Italiane. The schedule eliminates traffic, not that it’s any real problem where we’re headed. From our vacation home or cabin in the woods, we will range westwards to Terra Alta, reminiscent of the Dolomites. Tucked away on a remote farm in the mountains, we may discover an amazing collection of antique motorcycles. Technical mountain roads: not for beginners. 


4—AUGUST 9, 10, 11 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday): SEVEN SPRINGS RESORT  sold out.
In the winter they ski here. In August, Motorcycle Classics Magazine hosts their Ride ‘Em Don’t Hide ‘Em Getaway. Choose your bike. Hardcore? Ride with our small group, 250 wonderful miles each way. Not so much? Meet us at the resort, where your bike will be waiting for you to enjoy on the shorter group rides. There are great destinations, great food, fabulous roads, and scads of camaraderie.


5—SEPTEMBER 20, 21, 22 (Friday Saturday, Sunday): MOTORCYCLEPEDIA   sold out.
A full day’s ride will take us through the Poconos, bucolic northwest NJ, and into the Catskills. We’ll stay in the mountains about an hour from Newburgh. Day two is spent there, exploring the incredible displays, including an antique Indian from every year of production, and a complete, functional, Wall of Death. A great ride on Japanese motorcycles. Max: 8 riders. Relaxed pace, amazing fall foliage & FUN!


6—OCTOBER 11, 12, 13, 14 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday): THE KINZUA BRIDGE
It stood for over 100 years until a tornado knocked the center section down in 2003. Now, the skywalk lets us experience Autumn as never before. AMAZING! We cut clear across the Endless Mountains of Central PA & visit incredible Hyners View. Really good, easy, riding, and under 200 miles each day. To top it all off, we’ll get a tour of the Harley Davidson Factory in York on Monday: Columbus Day.


7—NOVEMBER 2 (Saturday): LOCAL LOOPS sold out.
Tomorrow we ‘fall behind’, so experience classic bike Nirvana before winter sets in. Five 25-mile loops in the Brandywine Valley will require all the available daylight. You will have the option to swap bikes. Very relaxed pace as I share some of my favorite local roads with you, and they are sweet! Authentic Mexican Tacos for lunch included, as well as breakfast and dinner. Always sells out early.


*---The following custom tours are samples available for any size group. Contact us (at least two weeks in advance) to design any length tour you would like, on a day that fits your schedule. We will make it perfect for you and/or your group. Motorcycles, destination, trip length, and pace are all your choice. LET’S TALK! 


8—YOU CHOOSE THE DATE (any the day of the week): THE PAGODA
This one-day ride takes us to Reading, PA. On a high ridge overlooking the city and the Schuylkill River Valley is a tall Pagoda with an interesting history. About 150 miles in all, the return trip includes a stop at Joanna Furnace: an old restored village. Super relaxed ride.


9—YOU CHOOSE THE DATE(S) : JIM THORPE
This can be a one day or a two-day ride. The town was once the richest in America, and the main street, known as ‘Millionaire’s Row’ features Swiss architecture, and is buzzing with tourists ready to experience the surrounding mountains. It is best appreciated from the saddle of an antique motorcycle.

10—YOU CHOOSE THE DATE: THE PINNACLES
This jam packed one day ride includes a secluded, spectacular overlook of Aldred Lake on the Susquehanna River, a visit to Robert Fulton’s house, lunch at the base of the historic Wrightsville Bridge, dessert at the Haines Shoe House, and a visit to the little-known Indian Steps Museum. Breakfast and dinner are included. Ride is at your pace.   

11—YOU CHOOSE THE DATE(S) : BILL'S OLD BIKE BARN

A fantastic 2-day excursion includes 150 miles of traffic free twisties each day, we cross the Appalachian ridge and 4 covered bridges and visit a collection of much more than motorcycles that you will never, ever forget. Also included is a bone jarring electric tram ride down into the oldest coal mine in the country. Here is coal country, the economy may be depressed but the riding is uplifting.
