    I see you are in New Jersey. I was born and raised in Jersey. Should be a great ride for you and you will love the roads once you escape the NJ/PA area.
    I live in western NJ, not far from Easton, PA. We have some outstanding motorcycle roads here -- quite a difference from when we lived in Jersey City, and certainly from when we lived in the Tampa area.

    That said, somehow PA tends to get really long, no matter what route. I went thru Springfield on a west to east ride last year -- looking forward to it again and to attending a rally!

    Again, thank you for this post! The place looks great and it's really hard to beat parking a motorcycle outside of a motel room door.

    While I lived in northern NJ had good friends in Bloomsbury and in Asbury. Pretty area for sure. I attend Americade every year and have taken a lot of buddies up 517 all the way to Goshen NY and they canít believe itís New Jersey. That being said I moved to Charlotte in Ď96 and never looked back. Ride all year here and about an hour from the Blue Ridge mountains.

    Used to frequent New Hope PA and route 32👍

    It's a very beautiful area around here. And you chose a good place -- not too far south, not too far north. That said, my wife and I lived in the Tampa area for more than 20 years. I can't tell you how happy we are to be in New Jersey. I've yet to miss a month riding for the past few years -- although last winter was a serious challenge (only one ride in February). But by and large, there's a good reason they call it the Garden State. I'm glad we all found our good places to be.

    I did my part yesterday to fill it with BMW's. And a better rate and rating than the motel I originally booked.

    In June I made a reservation at the Baymont north of the Best Western. July I saw pictures of the Best Western and changed our reservation and the nice outdoors area was one of the reasons.

    Yep!! Back on my way home from Great Falls I stayed in Springfield at the Hampton Inn. It was fine but not as motorcycle friendly as this Best Western. But it is about 4 miles in the other direction away from the fair grounds. This location is great.

    Glenlivet and I have a room there as well. Might cancel and camp if the weather cooperates, so we’ll see what happens.
