One of my places to ride in PA is in the Gettysburg area. Gettysburg is a beautiful, historic town and I love spending time there. While in Gettysburg stop by Battlefield Harley-Davidson. They always have something going on and an incredible showroom to buy anything you need including a new Harley.
