I headed for Codorus State Park to discover an area I previously wanted to visit,
but was prevented from doing so by a special event. I got there today and
visited other areas of the park as well.

It was a great October ride.




A Divine Display of Remarkable Results!


Of course, more pics are here:

It's great to have you along on the ride. Glad it brings up memories for you...

Sometimes...!!! I often ride either side of the road depending on where I'm at...

I usually am very attentive to what's going on around me, looking in the mirrors and left & right regularly. But, in this case, I was sorta daydreaming as I was putting along this country road, thinking I was alone - then this guy roars by me... Oh, well, sometimes you're the passer and sometimes you're the passee...


Thanks for posting - I hope you guys are trekking over to My Motorcycle Chronicles to see the rest of pictures....

I was riding in the area of Gettysburg, on a beautifully crisp October day.
The sky was bright blue and the temperature was in the upper 60's.



More great pictures and info about my ride is at My Motorcycle Chronicles.

I was riding in November. The temps were in the 60's with bright sunshine!




The forecast was for 70°, but where I was riding in the mountains, it definitely never made it there. But on these winter-ish days, the high temp doesn't happen until quite late in the day - lasting about 15-minutes before heading for dark cold nights.

There are still some trees with colors, but 85% have already lost their leaves. It seems in October if you blink too long, you've missed the show!

I rode about 150 miles in all - and added to my Reuben Research. Visit My Motorcycle Chronicles (click below) for the full story.

Ken, thanks again for sharing, and I too have been getting a few hundred miles in. No, no rear turn signals yet and I’ve just repaired a lower rocker box leak on the rear cylinder. Also adjusted the gear lever up one spline and tightened the right side foot peg. Got a little mis-que in the idle circuit but will address that at a later date. Indian Summer, my absolute favorite time of year, beckons and I must burn some fuel. Hope to share some of your roads one day and follow you and your brother through the foothills. A Rueben chased down with an ice cream might be on the agenda as well?
