Niagara On The Lake is a great town to visit, 25 miles north of Niagara Falls, btw stick to the Canadian side as the American side is even more tacky than you'd imagine. Nice HD dealership up by the lake, Claire's.

Take the Peace Bridge across. Definitely need your passport, as driver's license may not suffice. No weapons and NO DRUGS. Nice area! Enjoy and Ride Safe

You can stop by the PA Grand Canyon. On your way there, you can stop by the Harley dealer in Williamsport, PA. I am sure they can tell you about other things to see in that area.

You can see me but I'm probly not worth the detour. There is a Cabellas just north of Lancaster that is definitely worth the short detour. How about Gettysburg battlefield. I usually go there a couple times a year. Great to see while on the bike. You can get a tour CD to help guide you through the different areas.

•Route 6 (East/West) is an American Scenic Highway

•Ithaca and the nearby Lakes, Seneca and Cayuga have nice loop roads with scenic views. Ithaca has some great restaurants

•Corning Glass Works, Corning NY

•After you leave York, if you head East towards Philly, the Pennsylvania Dutch/Amish/Lancaster area is some of the prettiest in the mid-Atlantic

•as mentioned, Gettysburg Battlefields and Visitor Center are a must and nearby.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I ended up high tailing it home yesterday. Rode about 9 hrs. With just gas and restroom stops.
