Planning Trip & Need Some Advice
I'm planning to take a 5-7 day motorcycle trip in the North East. I have experience with long distances before (5 days), but in New Mexico. I rented a bike from Eagle Riders and they hooked me up with a great loop through some great areas and roads. I'll be starting out this trip from Allentown PA. My original idea was to head up towards Nova Scotia but I'm unsure of any good routes. I'm interested in great roads and beautiful scenery - I don't care about ending up in any one particular place or seeing any touristy things - I just want to experience a great long ride (Mountainous routes are what I love best) . Here are the questions I could use your input on (and whatever else you guys want to throw out there of course):
1. Any recommended routes?
2. What month should I do the trip - ( I was thinking this June)?
3. I ride a ZRX1100 - any recommendations on what type of bike I should rent and where I can rent from that's 1-4 hours from the Philly PA area. The bike I rented from Eagle Riders was a Harley Heritage softail.
4. Where or how can I find and plan a great route?
5. Whatever else you guys can recommend would be great.
Thanks, in advance, for all the help and pointers.
