    @uurx is this map better? No tolls, not 95, (although 81 is a boring drive, its better than dealing with 18 wheelers. Its still 65 and an interstate). Once we get to Thurmont MD, I will probably split off with @LocoLocal unless you want to come into Leesburg VA, and then we can ride out to Winchester VA to get you back to 81.

    6 states is pretty good @w.adventures !

    No iron butt ride for me on this trip. Have something going on following weekend and can't get hall pass for both, keeping the peace you know. I will tag along for a little though.

    I dont have or want rain gear. I suppose I could ride in a poncho.

    If I am caught in the rain, nothing that I can do. But if its raining when Im about to start ill either try to wait it out, or bail

    Consider this: same price and it adds a voltage readout and an on/off switch. So there’s no draw when you’re not running. Best 15 bucks I’ve ever spent on my bike and it’s held up great

    None... yet.
    That ALWAYS works out! :rofl:

    If you end up heading by Winchester and need a break, feel free to PM me! I'm only a few miles from my local I-81 exchange.

    I'll likely be spending much of the day in the garage, prepping mine for Sunday's track day.

    My biggest issue with I 81 is the frequency of wrecks but, if things are flowing smoothly, you can make pretty good time...

    Bridge-tunnel is the only one. The stretch down through DE will pass through several towns but traffic should be okay. Once into MD it stays just far enough from the resort areas to not be too bad. As you get to the southern end and enter VA it becomes more open and kind of desolate and it's a nice ride. The bridge tunnel is really cool, a true architectural and engineering feat. Section of bridge then a tunnel taking you down under the water only to come up again to a bridge section with no land on either end is really something to see. I have to look and see how the time would work but if you have the time it's a really cool alternative to the interstates.

    Just tried it in Google Maps and 623 miles but well over 10 1/2 hours

    Check the available times and current rates. I did that in 2019 but the prices have gone up a good bit since then.
