Pottstown!

I'm from Pottstown. I was able to pick it up the next day after that post. I absolutely love it. This is the bike I''ve been looking for. I was tempted by the GSs and even the XR1000 but at half the cost, and with way more off road prowess, THIS is the bike. I'm coming of an '06 Honda 599. I only drove it to work and back so I got about 50 miles on her. So cool. Manual clutch feels like butter, throaty stock exhaust... I think I'm going with the OEM panniers so I don't have to deal with installing mounting rack.

I bought it from Kiss Cycles here in P-town. He has one left, the red and white one and he said that's all he'll get for the year.

Edintheclouds,

Congrats!

I'm down in York, PA. Retired the FJR1300 and picked up a KLR650 for trail riding. After seriously considering the Triumph Explorer (riding buddy is trying to convince me), my mind has settled on the AT. However, I need to finish my PhD program next summer before I can justify the expense.

Looking forward to hearing more about your experiences.

Peace

Picked mine up September 3rd, looks like were getting enough here in the NE to have a get together. Took mine on some state forest roads out and around Poe Paddy State Park by State College last Sunday. Many more roads out there to explore, check it out.

Hey just spotted a Rally AT on RT 14 just west of Canton Pa at 11:30 am. The wife and I were out on the ST so I'm sure they didn't notice me. We were stopping at the fire company fair that was going on there. Dodged the rain for 230 miles but the wife was cold, stayed right around 57 degrees and cloudy.

Looking forward to the winter to be over!

Somebody in Boyertown bought the other AT in red that Kiss cycle had. Send me a PM.

I'm definitely doing the State College 7 mountains ride next September. We should get a pack of AT riders from PA to ride out!

I'll be attending DirtDaze as well but I'm heading up on Tuesday afternoon as I need to get back home Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I'll have to haul my AT up there if the wife decides to tag along.

Also, there is a more local event May 20th & 21st in Hancock, NY hosted by Bear Creek Sportsmen. However, it is mostly single track with a lot of technical sections but I've seen GSAs and other big bikes there in past years. Not quite ready to subject my new AT to that so I'll be taking my KTM 525. I believe you need an AMA card to ride their events.
