Road Trip North Eastern US, 2018.

All,

Planning a trip for mid to late September going from South Carolina north to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia & Virginia. I haven't started route planning yet but am asking that anyone who has been up in that area with recommendations and ideas of "Must See" and Must Ride" places in any of those states drop a note in this thread. I't going to be an 8 day ride with camping as the primary overnight accommodation.

Thanks, I look forward to seeing the ideas coming in.

The only place I know is the Pennsylvania Grand Cannyon. My wife is from Mansfield. You can drive the cannyon from Wellsbore to Jersey Shore through Ansonia and Slate Run, following the Pine Creek. It is awsome. Beautiful ride. You have places to camp. You have a small HD dealer in Mansfield. In Wellsboro there a few very nice places to eat lovely steakes. I love the Penn Wells Hotel.

I toured New England in 2014 on my Concours 1400. I have posted some of that trip on this forum in response to a previous request.

Here’s a short list of POI that I have found
Backbone Falls TN is a wonderful place for pictures.
Big Walker Lookout Wythville VA also do the Back of the Dragon #16
Hungry Mother State Park...my favorite park
Falling Spring Falls VA
Lunch at Swing Bridge Paint Bank VA
Route 56 Steels Tavern VA to Colleen VA
Smoke Hole Rd
https://goo.gl/maps/NRxtpnL4TTr
The dealer in State College PA is a must.
Wellsboro PA is also a wonderful town to visit.
Hyner View State Park Hyner PA
Kinzua Bridge State Park Mt Jewett PA
Letchworth State Park NY and a wonderful lunch at Glen Iris Inn
All the riding around Finger Lakes NY
While you are up there might as well check out Niagara Falls on the Canadian side.
Also check out some of the wine in the area.
Bear Mountain State Park NY is really pretty if you are in the area.
Ride to the top of Mt Washington NH
If you get to the ocean Bar Harbor ME is a must…ride to the top of Acadia National Park
Google all of the places for more info.
Sorry I can’t help you with the camping part…my idea of camping is “where’s the nearest Hilton and fetch me a martini”

She might not be the fastest bike on the street, nor the lightest, nor the best handling but with her pipes it'll sound like God's coming to dinner and he doesn't like what's being served. IBA #56452

If you're into history, Gettysburg and the 911 memorial in Schenksville.

Here’s a few more.
Because you are doing this trip end of Sept…its Elk season in Benezette PA and worth checking out if you are into wild life.
Also the Black Forest Inn Lock Haven PA offers a wonderful lunch.
Monica’s Pies Naples NY is a must and there is camping in the area.
There’s a pretty decent bike night at the Stone House in Farmington PA.
While in the area check out Ohiopyle PA.
Harpers Ferry / Sandy Hook along the Potomc River in MD / VA is a real nice area with camping also.
Route 15 Harrisburg PA to Williamsport PA is a wonderful ride
Route 9W is also a great ride from Bear Mt all the way up to Albany NY then grab 9N up to Ausable Chasm NY…wonderful camping here also.
There’s ferry’s and bridges to take you across to VT.
You could also do the York Plant tour in York PA.
Tupper Lake NY and Lake Placid NY is a great area if you’re going that far north.
