Program

Program

It’s best if you can arrive on Friday afternoon or evening so you can get orientation done and load up your chosen bike. You’ll head south on Delaware Route 9 which is remarkable for its Delaware River scenery and utter lack of traffic. Downstate, you’ll stop for a tour of the Dover Air Base Air Transport Museum. It’s free and there are some very cool displays including WWII combat gliders.

After a lunch stop where typical Chesapeake Bay cuisine may be sampled (the crabs are the best), you’ll cross the scenic Delmarva Peninsula and navigate the old route to Virginia on tiny back roads with several short ferry hops. Finally, you’ll cross a long bridge connecting the mainland to rustic Chincoteague Island where your motel room is ready, just the thing after a 250-mile day. A top-notch restaurant is a short walk away and yes, they also serve adult beverages.

On Sunday morning, you’ll leave late enough to catch the nearby Wallops Launch Facility Visitor Center just as it opens, then head north on the shore route. This will allow a stop at Assateague Island where wild horses roam empty white beaches that stretch to the horizon. Next, you pass through ‘Babylon’ aka Ocean City, Maryland, where gambling casinos and high-rise hotels seem to flaunt mother nature. Finally, a twisty route through Delaware and Maryland farm country brings you again to Pennsylvania where a hot meal is waiting.

Bike options

It seems quite strange now, but a long, long time ago, motorcycles were human-sized. Unlike many bikes of the 21st century, if your bike fell over it was actually possible to pick it up by yourself. Back then, a 350cc motorcycle was midsized, and a 750 was more than any sane rider needed. A 450-pound bike was considered portly. Five hundred were considered to be the perfect compromise: allowing for a good economy, ease of operation, and enough performance to keep things interesting. Travel was done on surface roads as opposed to today’s superhighways, which allowed for taking in the surroundings and interacting with other travelers and local folks. It's all good stuff and still do-able. You are invited to sample two days of relaxed touring on half liter machines of the 1970’s:

  • 1970 Triumph T100C Trophy
  • 1978 Honda CX500
  • 1975 Suzuki T500
  • 1979 Ducati 500 Desmo Sport
  • 1979 Moto Morini 500 Strada

  • 1976 Yamaha RD400C
  • 1979 Moto Guzzi V50
