Thread: Things to do around Oley?

  1. Things to do around Oley?

    Will make it to Oley for the first time this year. If there are any bike shops or places not to miss in the area please point them out. Really looking forward to this!

    Reading Motorcycle Club is a mile down the street and they are having Friday night drag races. They have a drag strip on the club property. RMC is among the oldest if not they oldest m/c in the US. Loose formation in 1909 and incorporated in 1914. Bring your AMCA membership card and get in free. They have a bar and serve food and really cool pics and memorabilia dating back to the founding. The Reading Standard factory is still standing at least it was last year in Reading. Not sure if you can get inside but I met a guy last year who did. Not much to see as it is empty but still cool that the building is still there and Reading Standard is still visible on the brick walls. If you want t make the trek to York you can visit the HD factory.

    Sorry I don't Eric but it should be on old literature or maybe a visit to the Reading Visitors site.

    Yesterday, I was talking to friend about Oley. I was remembering a freezing cold, wet Friday, and being a Floridian, was not dressed for a Pennsylvania Spring. I remember walking by the motorhome of a friend, and fellow Floridian who was watching t.v., sucking on a cocktail, and basking in the warmth of his rolling plush chamber. Did I get an invite? . . Hell no

    Travel a little east on I-80 and visit Bloomsburg's museum "Bill's Old Bike Barn" It is a real treat. Bill is a hoot as well.
