Thumbs up Heading your way in June!!!!

Me...Badtraindriver, Firedog45 and Jester, are all going to be making our trip from OHIO to Maine. We will be leaving June 20th, and making a 7 day trip. We are looking for a good place to stay south of Portland, not looking "at this time" like we will be going very far north into Maine. We will be spending some pretty good quality time in NY, but are also looking for some great roads and sites to see on our way to Maine. Would love to hook up with any troopers along the way, always enjoy the opportunity for meeting some troopers.

well when you get central ny way (syracuse-utica) i can show you a few stretches of roads with some decent twisties, just give me an idea in advance when you might be thru so i can try to adjust my schedule bid, i usually go for weekends off so if you can come thru on a weekend that would be awesome

depending on whats going on at my house then might even be able to put a couple of you up in a spare room as long as you don't mind bunkbeds lol or camp out on side lawn

here's a link with some of the roads, i'm right on the fingerlakes/adirondack line and have submitted a few of the roads myself

That sounds awesome.......I believe we are planning on staying in Utica Saturday night the 20th, but we are pretty flexible at this point. Thanks for the link....I will be checking that out for sure. Would love to try and meet up with you, I'll keep you updated on how our plans progress.

Hoboy....the best parts of Maine to ride are the western mountains and the mid-coast up to Canada. I'd pass on Portland via motorcycle, although it's a pretty cool city. If you're coming this far east, you want to catch the best of the area.

If there's any way to make it to Bar Harbor, you should.

If you decide to ride either RTE !00 or the Gaps in Vermont you're likely going to pass my home...depends what day i might try to ride along a bit.

I'm off of I-88 around Cobleskill, the 20th I'm booked but the next day looks good. I have some extra room or a tent area near a great pond. Your welcome if the timing is right. The photographs of Maine make me wish I could do a trip like that.

Do what you love, & do it often.

not sure what kind of riding you guys like or if you'll even be up for fun riding after the haul from columbus to here or before you leave for your next stop

but if you like some scenery and twisties, i was thinking of leading ya'll along this route

runs from my house, up past the lake/beach thru some forested twisties to the salmon river falls (some of the highest falls in the north east supposedly) then a short hop to a friends bar for dinner(lunch if next day) then a good stretch of twisties, then head back to house (or back to the slab for the continuation of your trip)

We've got plans to ride in the Mountains all day Sunday, then spending Sunday night in Vermont...but far west Vermont across the lake from New York.

Do you have any good routes through the Adirondacks?

Or, maybe we could do A,B,C, and D, then head East through the Mountains.

Our palns are not solid though...
