I think it's a great location for a National. The roads around New Hampshire and Vermont (as well as some I know in Massachusetts) are ideal for Guzzis. I know a number of rides that will be fun, especially if you've never been to the area. I'm pumped about the rally! I couldn't get to the last two Nationals, but this one is only an hour away from home. It should be memorable!

Mine too.   Gonna figure out a nice route there that doesn't include where Mapquest or Google Maps wants to send me up through the nightmare I-95 corridor from Virginia.   I'll swing west a bit and enjoy the scenery!

I sat down and plotted a couple of day trips, but damned if I can figure out how to save a Google route map. Anyway, if you feel like taking a beautiful ride through the Green Mountain National Forest up to the Ben & Jerry's Factory, or if you want to ride on some nice backroads in southern New Hampshire and Vermont, I can lay out a route that you might like. I also have a route into western Massachusetts that's fun, but I haven't plotted it out yet. I'm avoiding Mount Washington and the Kancamagus Highway because the Laconia Rally is happening at the same time, and unless you like riding in a slow parade, those roads wouldn't be much fun.

I will!   I'll be asking some questions too of people who live around there.   

When we rode our old BSAs up to Brimfield, MA for the 2006 International Rally, we found some beautiful roads up through Pennsylvania through the state forests.  And when Fay and I rode to Nova Scotia on the Stelvio, we went from our house to Grafton, Vermont the first day on some really nice roads, although there were a lot of little industrial towns to go through, it was still a good ride.

Planning is always fun.    I suppose a lot of people would just get on I-95 and grit their teeth and go, but that's never been me, not on a pleasure trip ....

It would be nice but I don't think it's in the cards.

6,000 miles round trip, $700 in gas and a set of tires. 

It would be a tough trip.   A trip of a lifetime.  

All I'd need is a couple of months off from work and an Iron Butt    :winer

In 2010, my wife(at the time) and I rode our bikes to the National in John Day Oregon. We went first to the Buell Homecoming rally in Wisconsin, then continued west to John Day. All told, we took three weeks to go from Atlantic ocean to Pacific Ocean and back (Literally - we had breakfast at Helmut's Struedel in Rockport, Mass. and two weeks later, we had dinner at Oscar's Mexican Restaurant in Newport, Oregon). My ex was riding a Buell Lightning Long and I was riding my Norge. We bought tires when they were on sale in the spring, and put a set on just before we set out.  we mostly rode for 500 miles a day, which is not excessively high mileage, and it was a really fun ride. Bring a camera, take lots of pictures and next year, at this time you can look at all the photos and smile.

Sounds a lot like when I road Old Route 66 back in the 90s. Started in PA and headed out to IL to pick up the road, then out to LA over the next two weeks, turned around and took a week to zig-zag back.

I used to live in Brimfield.    Sorry I missed that one.  Whenever I get frustrated with Italian bikes, I just think of the British non-system of thread measurements.

Do the ride.  We are half way on your route.  You can stop here, do any service that needs to be done on the bike, and JP Cycles is only twelve miles from here.  Tires aren't problem.  We are making plans to make this National.

Someone else mentioned the Laconia motorcycle week happening at the same time. Not sure this is so but I'd make reservations early if you need a room.
