Can't forget the Zippo lighter factory! Also in Bradford, PA. THAT is an interesting place that makes a great product that has ALWAYS been made in America.I would recommend going to see the Case knife factory in Bradford, Pa.
I95 is a nightmare. There are US routes that can get you to and from PA, a lot less hellish than 95. If you are interested, I can get the names of them for you, but I don't know them off the top of my head.Driven to PA by car on I-95 N.J. pike,but the traffic was crazy. I really wouldn,t want to do that on my nomad.
Just wanted to let you know, I had no idea you were in Nova Scotia. I would mapquest "Nova Scotia" to "Wellsboro, PA". The suggested route will take you down 95, hook up with the Boston I95 loop, and sling you around that way. I would avoid that route at all costs. Riding on the beltway of a major city is too risky for my blood, and I have a death wish. Might I instead suggest "Trans-Canada Hwy to I-91S" as you route. Yes, it will take you two hours out of your way, but you will have a good stretch of scenic highway in central Maine, and you won't be anywhere near Boston or NYC. If you need more details, please let me know and I'll be happy to draw a route up for you.Zim I am travelling from Nova Scotia to the nomad rally in Wellsboro PA 16-20 July 2012. Hope to meet up with members from Maine or Vermont. However its early and plans can change. I may go down the I-95 part way or Rt.2 to Vermont,not sure what Rt to take through NY to avoid heavy traffic , to Rt 6 to Wellsboro. Any suggestions would be appreicated. Thanks Dave
Thanks for the info, David. I was looking online but couldn't find anything useful. All I found was a Canadian motorcycle forum talking about how they were getting a group together to come down. Should be fun, and I just may be there!Zim The rally is put on by Nomad owners. They have a regional rally one year and the national rally the next year. This rally is the northeast and Canada east group. The dates are 16-20 July. Rooms are booked at the Canyon Motel in Wellsboro.. A couple of riding days are schedule for the Grand Canyon area and a day of socializing. All are welcome, It doesn't matter if you are doing a day trip or are staying in the area. I am sure there will be local riders from your area. Some members ride wings, harley etc. Hope to see you there.
