I always wanted to go up 75 between Lake Huron and lake Michigan, after a quick stop in Brooklyn.

Bad weather has always prevented me--every freaking Summer--and I am hoping this will be the Summer when I time it right. A detour through the Finger Lakes now sound like a great idea.

Then, after stopping at Aerostich (in Duluth) and spending money like a fool on riding gear I probably don't need, head West on lonely Hwy2 all the way to Seattle.

Don't hold my breath, every Summer I do something differ than I planned.

See after trying to bust your chops earlier because you were from you know where, I hope I came through for you with info lol.

Shoot, you call that chops-bustin'?

Vt may be in the process of losing some of my almighty tourist dollars. I'll check in with Ed. I did a ride with his group once in Ma.
Maybe in June we can tear up a couple of crapped-out roads together.

If you're genuinely interested in spending $ on gear you don't need, take a detour east on the Kancamagus Hwy (112) to Whitehorse Gear in E. Conway, NH, just before you hit the Maine border. They can help.

As Justin suggested Whitehorse Gear is a great rider destination and store in the Conway, NH area....they also have a thriving business on the Internet. I've been there many times over the last ten years and bought my Tourmaster riding jacket there among other items. One of the best features of the store, other than the ability to see and try on different brands of riding gear before plunking down your cash or plastic, is that they go out of their way to help the customer while still offering a no pressure sales environment.

Road Runner magazine did a tour of the Finger Lakes in 2002, a pretty nice tour and trip as I remember reading it. I think you're gonna love the trip. I hope to make a tour in that area some day myself.

Good find. Thanks.
I'll dig it out of the pile. Must be close to the bottom.

I am not a big fan of Rte 20. It gets tedious at times as you get near cities. I don't know how much time you have, but to see all (or most) of the suggestions so far will take a couple days. I have a lot of favorite roads in this side of the state. I ride all over the Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Catskills all the time so if you give me an idea how long you want to spend, I can make some suggestions. All of the ones mentioned in NY so far are on my list. I've also have a number of great places to eat from bbq to fine dining along the way.

Thanks for checking in.
I think that all I need now is an alternate to 20. Figure I'm coming out of the Adirondack region on 30 or 28.
Time is not a factor.
What do you think?
