Vacation Time

I plan to attend SW and was just curious how much vacation time people are taking. Obviously that question has way to many variables built in but just looking for an average. 1st of the year we can put in our vacation request and Im thinking about 1.5 weeks should do. Thoughts?????

I'm planning for 15 or 16 days. We're doing the Gypsy Tour and then we plan to head over to the coast to ride down the coastline of Maine. I'm hoping we will have time to ride through the Catskills and the Poconos on the way home. Also I'd like to stop by the York factory and Gettysburg. Getting back may take us 7 or 8 days.

I live close enough to only take 5 days off from work. Unfortunately, I may have to shorten it a day but, too soon to tell

This pretty much says it all. Map out the route you think youll want to take then figure out how much riding you can do or will want to do in a day and go from there. And im sure youll need to plan a couple cool down days for relaxing before you head back to the daily grinds

From Southern Indiana you can ride to Erie, PA on Thursday to join the Gypsy Tour, which leaves Friday morning. You can leave New Hampshire the following Friday morning and be home Sunday easily.

Add time if you want to do some additional touring.

I'm planning on 16-17 days for the trip. This will include taking our time on the way up and either a week around the NE or a run up to PEI and Nova Scotia.

I'm either going to do the whole thing with a week of vacation M - F using the weekend before for travel to and the weekend after for riding back home or I'm taking 2 weeks and making it a family vacation with 3 days of Shark Week squeezed in there somewhere.
