Way back in August 2016, we invited readers to join us at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Pennsylvania for the very first Ride ‘Em, Don’t Hide ‘Em Getaway. More than 80 readers showed up that first year, and we’re thrilled that you keep coming back every year since. Our 4th Annual Getaway was Aug. 9-11, 2019, and like the first three it was another wonderful weekend of riding, wrenching and bench racing, along with tasty meals shared together. With 70 riders on classic Moto Morinis, Yamahas, Nortons, BMWs, Triumphs, Laverdas, Hondas, Suzukis and more — not to mention a trio of brand-new Royal Enfield twins — enjoying the great twisty lanes and back roads of Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. While our venue at Seven Springs moved from indoors at our beloved Festival Hall (now remodeled and too nice for drippy, oily motorcycles) to up the hill at The Foggy Goggle, we soldiered on. Despite not as much space for inside parking, the large covered patio played home to most of the bikes during our time at the resort. We did manage to sneak a few inside the bar which made for some fun photos.
