Here is a quick update on the activities during the past month, beginning with the most recent, which was the blessing of the bikes.
This year three of us met up at the Starlite Diner for breakfast and then we rode to the Pagoda in Reading. After that we rode back to the Reading Motorcycle Club for their annual bike blessing. In total, 138 bikes showed up with us being the only sport bikes that I saw. As far as the ride, aside from a few slow cars and a squirrel with a death wish, it was a good day.
Earlier in the month we had our first official ride of 2013 dubbed "Leap Around Lancaster". We had 12 riders show up with an additional two joining us for breakfast. The ride started out cool with temperatures around the freezing mark and by afternoon they had risen into the upper 40's. We enjoyed some nice scenic roads jam packed with sweeping curves and tight corners which lead us to our lunch stop in Mt. Gretna. After lunch some of the group broke off and headed for home, while the rest continued on to enjoy some twisty Lancaster area roadways. Despite hitting some traffic it was a good day with many good people.
