Pennsylvania Roads....... PATHETIC!!!!!

Postby pau7220 » Tue May 06, 2014 12:32 pm



As a wing rider constantly poking fun at HD Trailer Queens, for the first time in my life I am actually considering a trailer for my Wing....... just to get out of the state!!! I have 2 new Bridgestones sitting here on the floor in a plastic bag, and they may stay there! I don't know if I'll even put them on. Bike is still covered in the corner with a battery tender on it, insurance lowered to minimum coverage, and the registration expired. There's absolutely no way to get out of PA, to get to NY or NJ without destroying your bike or getting killed. I have never seen anything like this! I was in Central NY last week and the roads were actually tolerable..... At least they're making an effort. I don't know what else to say..... I may sit out the season :evil:

While there are some pretty crappy roads in PA,there are also some very nice ones IMHO.NY State is an exception.Pretty hard to find a bad road in NY.Not too many States with roads like NY.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

As long as they keep all the construction to the interstates it's all good.I never run them anyway.
