Four miles out of town appears to be the closest camping. (quick search) Heck, I staggered further than that before. rofl

Lake George is certainly beautiful, but summer will not be doable there I would bet, our family spent some time living in the glens falls area when I was a tyke, summers are crazy there, americade in June or July every year I believe. That being said, if somebody can work a good deal at the sagamore, I'm in. smile

Love it but please, pardon my one question. Would you still be able to pass the Grey Poupon on your BMW Motorbike Sir? grin

Buckhorn Lake State Park in Kentucky would be a great setting.



The last time there was a BMW Sport Touring event in Kentucky, I stopped at Buckhorn Lake, and confirmed that they have the ability to handle groups, with group discounts, as well as a dining room that can handle large groups. Beautiful setting.

Yup, looking at GMaps of the Buckhorn Lake SP area I can plainly see my original "I don't think there would be any other location worthy of an UN" quote go down in flames! Thanks Richthofen! grin

Buckhorn is certainly a great riding location for sure and the rates along with the venue seem to fit well within the affordable for most. Quite the savings on the Fall rates in August. I think that is because it is when school starts down there........

Many of the schools "down there" start in August.
This year we returned August 9th and students started August 15th.

The UN's held in August haven't worked for us.

In Florida schools can start 2 weeks before Labor Day and do.

My wife and I did a 2-up ride through New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine in September. Living in the south, where we rarely see more than a few nights in a row of freezing weather, almost any back road is likely to be well paved. Taking the same sorts of roads in Vermont and New Hampshire beat us up pretty badly. The worst was east of Bristol, where we took Lincoln Gap road across the Green Mountains. On the paper map I had, it looked paved, but was about 50/50. The east side was so steep that I had to use the brakes while in first gear. Taking route 100 south to Hancock led to repeated pavement breaks for road construction. Back roads in New Hampshire the next day were almost as punishing, although with less road construction. Maybe I just made bad choices, but I have had enough of New England for a while.

Ah Selden, You lucked out! Those are the good ones! Your right about the winter wear!

Just Kidding though. Many of the New England roads are punishing. Rt 100 in particular has seen many better years. I have seen many road reconstructions though and the pavement has deeper sub bases, heavier thicker slabs of macadam and concrete to prevent frost heaves but there is so much money and too much pavement right now to really notice a difference.

As soon As I ride anywhere south about 150-200 miles I notice a huge difference in pavement quality. Especially in Pennsylvania.
