    Toronto Canada to Towanda Pennsylvania

    This was my first long distance overnighter trip after having the bike for 11 months now. From Friday June 5th to Sunday June 8th 2015, traveled about 1,700 km with myself and a Goldwing from Toronto to Towanda, then a day of riding on Saturday through the valleys and mountains of Pennsylvania. Mostly all back highways getting there and while there and the return. Awesome roads and we met a lot of great people there. We stayed at the Rodeway Inn in Towanda as our base for 2 nights.

    The TTSE played out flawlessly with speeds of up 95 miles per hour around those great sweeping curves.   the weather was beautiful going up to about 24c during the day. I meant to say speeds up to permissible by law.  :018:

    What a great handling bike. The riding position is just right for me and was very comfortable for the up to 2 hours of riding time between legs.

    I would love to do that again.

    Go on then do it again!  As Oscar Wilde "The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it... I can resist everything but temptation." - bet he would have done it again.

    I normally say enjoy your TTSE but you're already doing that!

    Later

    Love, light, and kindness,

    I'm guessing you rode down through the Upstate NY Finger Lakes Region?

    Unfortunately you missed the best part of Upstate New York, the Finger Lakes Region.  But no fears...Toronto is just a few hours away.  You should really take a 3-4 day weekend and explore the lakes closest to you: Canandaigua, Cayuga, Keuka, Seneca, Skaneateles, Honeoye, Canadice,Hemlock Lake and Conesus.  Well worth your time.

    I have been to the finger lakes before. Do you have a gpx route for that area?
