This was an amazing ride! Set aside at least 8 days if you ride every day. We took longer (13 days) because we would park for a day or so in several places to just do the 'tourist' thing. Blast down the highway until you can get off into the Adirondacks of NY, then slow down and enjoy the rest of the trip. Would suggest staying in a smaller less 'iron men/women in training' town than Lake Placid. It was nice to do dinner, but staying there was slightly annoying. There are several ferries across Lake Champlain, we took the one out of Plattsburg. Easy on/off, cheap, and a nice boat ride. The White Mountain Region of New Hampshire was outstanding, but the pavement is a mess. We have ridden the BRP several times, and the scenery is similar. Bar Harbor was a great base to ride out of to see the northern coast of Maine (down East??), and we spent several days just relaxing on the water. If you have the time, ride the coast from BarHarbor to Boston, instead of the highway. Our original plan was to take the coastal route, but weather dictated just 'getting somewhere dry.' I would skip riding out to Provincetown or Cape Cod on a weekend day..the traffic was RIDAAAACULOUS. Would also recommend allow more time to get off the highway and see Connecticut, unfortunately we ran out of time and had to just blow thru. The ride home thru PA was beautiful, even from the highway, but the road surface truly stunk for a large portion of 80. Use caution at high speeds, the pavement is ROUGH all the way thru Akron.
