This fall on Labor day weekend. I am planning on going since this is only the second one I will be bale to attend this year. Is anyone else planning on going. Anyone want to meet up there then go out for a ride after? Let plan something.

I haven't been to one yet this year - I'll seriously consider it and will check back in.

Looking to see if anyone else is considering going. Less than a week away.

I will probably putt on over. I usually try to park up near the top of the lot, in the middle. I wonder if Iron will show up?

I probably won't stay super long (or be up for doing anything afterwards.) I plan on heading home to work on the reassembly of the turbo engine - pending the arrival of the rewound stator before then.

I'm here parked directly on front of the hamburger/BBQ tent (up by the main building)

Never saw PonyboyAgain or his bike. Mr. Softie arrived shortly after I did, followed by LenInPA about 20 minutes later. We all walked around and checked out the hundreds of bikes that were present. We encountered the following GL500...









Upon returning to our bikes I discovered the following.





Upon closer examination and with the help of the flashlight, I'm convinced that it is the front cover gasket as the front camshaft seal seems ok when looking in there with the flashlight. Also when I wipe the oil up, it seems to be originating, accompanied by some tiny bubbling, from the area indicated by the arrow.







We left around noon and rode through Lancaster County to the Windmill Family Restaurant in Morgantown, PA where we ate lunch. After lunch, and after the photo shoot, LenInPA and Mr. Softie hopped on the turnpike and I continued along Rt. 23 East to my place in Chester County.

Thanks for posting those pics Will.



I split off from Len at the Northeast Extension while he proceeded east on the Turnpike. I am telling you, Len moves right along!. Now I am going to change the oil and filter, and tomorrow morning adjust the valves on my old Silverwing Interstate. I had forgotten the naked GL was called the Silverwing. Your CX is really looking good Will, good luck with fixing that oil leak and in getting your Turbo back on the road.



I really enjoyed looking at all the different bikes and talking to the other riders. I especially enjoyed being in the company of Will and Len. Thanks!

Thanx guys! Wow, I've ridden all my life, but never seen so many bikes in one place. Every kind of bike you can imagine. Will, I suppose that you have already checked that all the bolts are tight.



Mr Softie, thanx again for advice on my auto. Yes, when the traffic is really moving along, I usually just go right along with the flow. If I go slower, feel too vulnerable. You are good to ride with, as Will is. Next ride?



Hard to imagine a nicer day to ride, my favorite time of year.

I suppose I should plan to get to Ephrata at the crack of dawn. I went there the old fashioned way.(I drove all three miles.) I saw only two "Twisted Twins" when I got there. One was a flat black CX650 with a wooden seat and the other was a CX500 Custom from York County. I am sorry that I missed seeing you all and your bikes. Both of my "Twisted Twins" are down for the time being. There are some minor problems, but sufficient to keep them home. Maybe next month?????
