    I'm guessing this isn't soon? Still cold up there.

    Nah. Early September. I’m an absolutely neurotic planner. Every detail. This is a borderline late start for me.

    Absolutely. One of the few places I've been to for work, that I went back on my own time for fun. Cool little town, great food and beer, right on the water.

    Rt 6 is a nice ride all the way through PA & NY to the Hudson River.
    A little farther north is Rt 20. Also a nice ride.

    just make sure yours is shittier than the other bikes and they will leave it alone.

    I suggest a clapped out SV

    If you're looking for things to see or places to stretch your legs not far off of Rt 6, I'd suggest:
    1. The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania near Wellsboro PA.
    2. Bear Mountain State Park (Perkins Memorial Dr) right before you cross the Hudson River in NY
    Good views at both places

    And the ride into Peekskill from the Bear Mountain Bridge is a twisty delight, although it is heavily trafficked. 42 turns in 4.2 miles

    I can't help out with any recommendations for Western PA, but if you find yourself in/around the Philly area and and need a place to crash or a garage to do some work, mi casa es su casa.

    awesome! Any spots we should hit? Seafood and beer is pretty much my primary drive.

    You'll go right through Wellsboro, picturesque town right from the 1880's. A bit of trivia, when Ma Bell wanted to demonstrate fiber optic cable they chose Wellsboro to do it in so they would have good photo ops.

    There’s a joke in there about the gentleman with an affinity for the company of other men, offering an exhaustive review of hotels and motels, and their proximity to interstate highways...














    But I won’t pluck the low hanging fruit...











    Shit, did I just say that? :D

    I'd think anyone traveling for racing would have that same info. There were good suggestions before I saw it or I've got a few up near Nelson...

    A Gentleman always appreciates a hot shower and a comfortable bed after a long day of hard riding. :Poke::beer:

    I ate at Gilberts Chowder House almost every day i was there. Little hole in the wall place, outside seating next to the docks. Seafood chowder was awesome. A couple blocks back from the water was Foundation Brewery, although i think there's a few others to pick from in town. There was a great bakery right next to the Hilton Garden downtown, but i forget the name. Really good morning buns. Standard bakery maybe?

    I second this. Very pretty area. We used to go rafting through there when I was a kid.

    You mentioned riding up to Portland. Taking Rt 1 along the Maine coast would be worth it in my opinion. Lots of picturesque Maine villages along the way and if you like seafood, it will be cheap and plentiful if you get off the beaten track a little bit.

    Clear filed and Dubois are fine. I know there is a huge Wally World and some hotels right off 80 at clear field.
