Post Rt 339
I heard through the grapevine, and saw a little on board video, RT 339 is repaved :rockon: I may have to go out this weekend and see what's what. Last time I was on it there were lots of tar and chip patches in the section I just watched the video from.

I haven't been on it for awhile for just that reason. Last I was on the mainville side was paved and the other half was horrible. You up for some company?

Interesting. I haven't been on that part of 339 since last fall, and it was rough to say the least.

The really bad section from 94 thru Zion's Grove hasn't been paved and the bridge at river rd is closed for a rebuild but there is some nice new pavement up into Mainville

Not me. Too much to do today. Besides, I have to throw a different front tire on the RC before I head out. I'll be out tomorrow morning.

Post Re: Rt 339
Well the 339 ride turned into a 125 ride instead. I was getting a later than usual start, I haven't been on 125 in several months and all this bullshit talk elsewhere on the web about how bad rt 125 is lately had me curious so I decided to head south. I met up with Rider X and we headed out. I haven't seen that much Sportbike traffic on 125 in a long time. Lots 'o bikes out and about. I was really expecting to see some carnage on the mountain when we returned north but surprisingly there were no signs of any that I saw. We passed at least three groups of bikes going the opposite direction plus some random stragglers. Funniest part of the day was we tagged along with two other bikes on our way home. One had passed the two of us going slow through Hegins, I didn't see what the bike was, and his buddy who stayed on my tail on an RC8. The four of us ended up at Turkey Hill in Shamokin and as we got talking I realized they were FZ811 and his buddy that are doing their first track days next weekend with ACE. Small world that we just ramdomly ran into each other. We had a good talk and everyone is looking forward to Sunday coming up.

By the way, rt125 is in no worse shape than usual. Actually it was quite clean even after the t-storms we had last week. I guess all the hoopla was the usual squid based talk :jerkoff:

Well said mentch. Except you left out the part about the douchebag in the Cummins flooring it going up the mountain and trying to make it difficult to pass going about 80 when I went around. I'm still going to try to make it out there on Sunday to Pocono and do a track day in the future.

It was good meeting both of you guys this weekend, 125 being bad has been a bunch of hoopla. Installing a new rear tire on Thursday and I will be all set for Sunday. Gravel going south near the right hander with the guardrail but other than that it was perfect.

Mentch171 before it get to chilly we should go on a run through rt235 to rt 445 early one morning.

Sounds good to me. I should have my CBR's forks back within the next week so I'll be looking for a good excuse to ride it. I haven't ridden it at all this season :banghead:
