I need some ideas for a trip my wife and I are planning on taking in mid-July. We will have she says a full 9, I say 10 days to ride somewhere and I am looking for some more ideas. This will be the first vacation we have ever taken where we plan on actually leaving the area we live in. I have a couple of ideas, such as touring all the neat and historic places and cool motorcycle roads (there are a lot of them) in our home state of Ohio. I also have been seriously considering a trip east into Pennsylvania with a stop at the PA Grand Canyon, (Wellsboro, PA) and then moseying down towards DuBois, PA, home of the "most unique" (they claim) HD shop in the country with Punxatawney Phil t-shirts even, and then riding from DuBios towards Somerset, PA. We would take in the Flight 93 Memorial which is near by and mosey ourselves back towards home. Our goal is to take our time, ride all the 2 lane State and Federal Routes we can, as we are not big fans of interstate riding, we prefer a slower pace, we also want to stay in helmet choice states. At most we will probably only be riding 200-300 miles a day. Also, what are some of the better, low cost motel chains, we really love Hampton Inns, but for a 10 day trip, a c-note a night would be too pricey. Camping is not an option, neither of us like sleeping on the ground and I don't want try to pack all that gear anyway. The reason I'm asking for ideas is because normally our day trips are usually not planned, we kind of just fly by the seat of our pants, or as my wife says, "You decide, I'm just along for the ride." I may start out with a general destination in mind but change my mind before we even get out of the driveway. But, with 10 days, I really want to see some awesome roads and scenery. Thanks.
