Me and friend
Dave have been yearning to make a trip over to the Gettysburg, PA battlefield
location for quite some time. I've previously made a quick visit there
about ten years ago on a Honda Silver Wing 650 while in route to New Jersey and
thought a more thorough tour would be required some day. Now was the time.
We planned to make it a five day, four night ride. Considering the mileage
and things we wanted to see, we thought this would be sufficient. I would
be riding my
VL 800 Intruder Volusia and Dave would be on his
1999 Yamaha 650
V-Star, which he just got put back together after replacing his rear driveshaft
assembly which decided to break down a week before our trip. A few days,
500 plus dollars later and some sweating, he was ready to roll with a couple of
days to spare.
Day 1- Leave Greenfield, OH and ride to Morgantown, WV. Day 2-
Leave Morgantown, WV and ride to Gettysburg, PA. Day 3- Leave
Gettysburg, PA and ride to Waynesboro, VA traveling thru the Shenandoah
National Park's Skyline Drive. Day 4- Leave Waynesville, VA and
ride down the Blue Ridge Parkway and then over to Princeton, WV. Day 5- Leave Princeton, WV and ride back
up thru West Virginia over thru Kentucky to
Maysville, KY and then on back to Greenfield, OH.
