This is a very nice ride. Lots of different scenery, from urban to rural to almost wilderness. Good pavement, some sweeping curves.All in all a nice ride.
My wife rode it also on her yamaha 650 v-star:She enjoyed it too.
We rode from Baltimore Md.and it added about an hour and a half to the trip.We went up route 1 to 222 south and ate lunch in Port Deposit. Rte 222 parallels the Susquahanna River. It adds a nice touch to the ride.
