I am the coordinator/organizer for this year’s rally, a fancy title for the guy who opens the gate and collects the rent. This post is locked, a discussion thread, with additional information, can be found HERE.

A get together of the official unofficial Honda CX/GL owners and aficionados club in Pennsylvania Amish country;
THE HTTA (Honda Transverse Twins Association.)

This year’s rally is dedicated to the memory of Phil Gilbert, who found this wonderful location and gave birth to the Amish Rally.
There will be a toast to Phil, which, like Phil, with be a fine aged mellow spirit with a slight bite.

The rally started back in 2001, so this will be the 21st Anniversary.

It is open to anyone who rides, used to ride, or is thinking about riding any of the Honda twisted twins (CX and GL's). It is also open to those who ride other makes and models who share an interest in these bikes, or in motorcycles in other words, anyone is welcome.

The location is west of Milton, PA. Arrival and departure times are up to each person. Individual reservations will not be taken - just show up! Cabin is usually open by late afternoon/early evening on the first day.

The fee is only $12 per night per person for the rental of the camp. This fee goes to the owners of the camp; no one is making any money from the rally.

Food is up to each person attending. There are two complete kitchens with three refrigerators and plenty of dishes, cups, pots, pans etc. There are times we’ll go out to eat at a variety of different eateries, we play it by ear. Some days, we may barbecue or cook at the cabin. There will be a donation kitty to chip in for house meals, snacks and staples. Donations also cover consumables not included in the camp rental fee, such as napkins, paper towels, TP, etc. No one person handles all victual procurement, a running tally is kept, this system works very well to keep the cabin properly victualed.

We leave the cabin stocked and in the same or better condition than we found it, that way we can continue to be welcomed back.

There may be daily rides, but nothing is set in stone. We just play it by ear and relax. Very informal, some don't even bring a motorcycle, coming for the camaraderie and to take a
break from the usual.

There may be a member or two who hold a tech session for those interested, others may bring parts and stuff to trade or sell, use the discussion thread to get rid of what you don’t want and get what you need. Some beer is consumed, some people may prefer to sleep outside in tents or campers, most sleep inside on one of the many beds. Bring a sleeping bag. Earplugs can be useful. The camp has WiFi.

The camp is private; our group will be the only one there. Attendees show up from all over. Some come for part of a day and others are there for the duration.

Proceed straight ahead to the traffic light, then turn left at this light. Follow this road for about 4 miles to a small village crossroad called Kelly Point. Go across a short creek bridge, then immediately turn right onto Sunrise Road. Follow this road around several sharp corners, past a small white frame Sunrise United Methodist Church on the right and then the large Spruce Run water dam on the left. The entrance to the camp is on the right just beyond the water dam, look to the right, and you should see the cabin signpost.

There are 16 Double sized beds with Full Size Extra Long mattresses that require Queen size sheets. Each bed has a bedspread, and you will need your own bedding or sleeping bags.
