About the Event

Let’s plan to meet at District Harley-Davidson with KSUs at 9:30am. November 14 is

bound to be cool so it’s important to dress in layers. If you can remember the TV show

called “Sky King” then you are... well let’s just say that you are old enough. Sky

King was an American radio and television series from the 1950s and 1960s. Its lead

character was Arizona rancher and aircraft pilot Schuyler "Sky" King who usually

captured criminals and spies and found lost hikers with the use of his airplane, King and

his niece Penny lived on the Flying Crown Ranch. Penny was also a pilot but looked to

her uncle Sky for guidance.

We won’t be riding fast enough to be considered flying but with a Walter Mitty

imagination and a little leaning one could visualize flying. On this ride we will be taking

some fun roads and will pass through Jefferson, Gathland State Park, Sharpsburg,

Harpers Ferry and eventually end up at either Pennys Diner or the Beans in the Belfry in

Brunswick, Maryland.

This will be a long and twisty route with beautiful scenery. We will make 1-2 rest stops

in each direction. We may stop for ice cream on the way home if its not too cold. Hope

everyone can make it. Please arrive on time, gassed up and ready to go.

Road Captain: Joe Warren

Total miles: 130
