Pennsylvania.... possibly moving there

Hey guys, well possibly moving from sunny (hot as balls) Florida to Ephrata, Pennsylvania and I'm wondering if anyone lives in that area to give me any insight on how it is near that area or surrounding areas.

Anyone live around there?

Any insight?

Sounds like someone's gonna be working for the man Don Guhl???

Can't comment much on the town, all I can say is it snows in the winter and you won't be able to ride, just mod But you probably already know that

I moved to northeast (new york border) two years ago for work. First winter we didn't see the ground for 3 months. It sucked because I work out in it. This last winter was pretty mild, very little snow at all. Roads up north are nice and curvy. Good thing is ur 3-4hrs from some really amazing things. Good luck

there are few problems in life that the proper application of throttle will not fix.:deathmeta

I live an hour from ephrata. Maryland, Delaware, nj, philly and even new York are veryclose to there
you will be defeating your bike that's for sure. Unless you wanna play on rt1 between Maryland and pa. Only roadsstraight and smooth enough to break 200 around ephrata. Some of the best twisty roads are near ephrata. Great bike meet every month in town too. Hundreds of bikes.

As stated above, the twisties are awesome. I have been all over Penn with my last job, and i would just look out the window wishing i had my 10. But the Winters are cold, and quite a bit of snow. I dont think i have ever been up there between 1st Nov - end Jan that there wasnt snow on the ground. But the summers are incredible. Hard to beat the twisties up there.

Never snowed more than three inches past with winter and only twice maybe three times. Two previous winters we got over three FEET.
