Short motorcycle ride to Harpers Ferry

Short ride to Harpers Ferry

My wife, Debbie, and I rode our longest ride, to date, on our new bike. We rode the long way to and from Harpers Ferry, WV on our 2011 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic Limited (FLHTK). From our home outside Leesburg, VA we put on just under 100 miles to and from Harpers Ferry.

Harpers Ferry is a very historic little town. The armed struggle for the abolition of slavery started here. Check out Wikipedia for the detail

The bike rode well but we are still trying to figure out the intercom system. At first we could hear nothing but music, then I could hear Debbie but she could not hear me (although she said that was the way it should be). In the end we could hear the music and each other but our voices did not turn of the music and sounded like we were talking through tin cans connected with string.

Also, we should get a round of thanks from everyone as we must have put a serious dent in the bug population based on the number of splats on the windshield fairing. Had I not had a windshield….it would have been a mess.

  1. Nice to find your blog! We live in MD and often ride to the same places you have written about, although our longest trip so far was 10 states in 12 days! Happy riding!
