PA Route 125

How many of you PA guys have run 125 from Pine Grove to Shamokin?
Just had my first experience on that route and was very impressed. I would have to say it rates up there with some of the best roads in the state. Minimal traffic and very few areas where you are passing houses.

Elevation changes and decreasing radii turns, multiple sweepers, long 180 turns, tight S bends, wide hairpins, and one huge jump..this road has it all.

Definitely a road you want to be familiar with before you go fast on.

This is a pic from up on Shikellamy look out, it's about 25 miles after you get to Shamokin on the West side of the Susquehanna.

He is pretty damn fast, I had him within SENA headset range most of the way but couldn't see him. He was busy following someone on a zx10r.

I think I have ridden with you before..maybe a first sunday in Ephrata last year? Although I wasn't on a zx6

Pine Grove is about 1 hour from me! You planning any rides this summer? Have you ridden up and around Wallenpaupak lake? Specifically route 507 to route 6? That is an amazing ride. Typically there isn't too much traffic. 447 used to be a great road but winter has created a lot of potholes, if you are on that road be careful!
