Well...

For eats.

Breakfast: Chef's, Dairyman's Diner, and some little place I can't remember the name of right down the road a piece from Ithaca Harley.

Outside of Breakfast... I don't eat much else, but prefer to slowly graze through out the day.

The Savoy is a decent little bar in Watkin's, and there are several decent one's on MArket Street in Corning.

Some killer rides though in the whole damn area... and that is what any road trip is about!!!

Regarding Lodging:

Dave, Mike, and I have been looking into lodging and it turns out that there's a wine festival the weekend that we've planned our trip so finding a hotel with enough rooms for all of us has been tough.

Today we found the Villager Motel with a block of 11 rooms, but they won't let us hold them so we all have to call and reserve our rooms.

For reservations call 607-535-7159 and ask for one of the rooms in the motel section near the indoor pool. Rooms are $145 per night.

If we get enough people to reserve quickly, I'll try to negotiate a lower rate.

Count me in... I just booked that Villager motel at 95 per nite.... they also have $85 rooms left.. the lady told me that the 145 are on the HOTEL side... I grabbed the MOTEL side.... cee-ya's in July


Villager is like right outside Watkins on 414/14 as I recall. But folks, summer... lakes... highway and country roads... not gunna be alot of room time.

Also check the GlLen Motor Lodge, and a couple others. Also, some nice B&B's up there.

I will prolly be sleeping up above a barn 3 miles north of watkins. Works for me...

I think a good Saturday ride would be Watkins to Ithaca. Hang there a bit (bout 40 minute scoot). Ithaca to Corning hang there a bit (bout a 45 minute scoot) or so. With a few hours of riding in between in the country around Cayuga and seneca lakes. THen from Corning back to Watkins (bout a 40 minute scoot).

Want a long ride? Start early, ride around Seneca lake from watkins up the west side to Geneva... then down the East side to Watkins. Take a few good hours with some stops and such... then hit Ithaca... corning... etc.

I am proposing a get-together in July 14-16 in the Finger Lakes of New York . I have a few places in mind to hold the event . After I receive more information and rates I will post them . The places in am looking at have on site bars with motel rooms and cabins .Watkins Glen NY looks like the best site for the location . Some of the attractions in Watkins Glen are NASCAR track , State Park , Winery Tours , Boat Cruises , Cornell University , Warplane Museum , Norman Rockwell Art Museum , Corning Glass Museum and many waterfalls .

Let me know who is interested in attending so I can get an idea of numbers .

Thanks and spread the word . DAVE


Hey ,
I will be there...
Can't wait...
Meanwhile anyone wanting to do some 'upstate' cruising... let me know I am always in the mood~!

Hey Lisa, someone that is going already called me and told me they wanted the other bed. Sorry, I promised it already. I think they had some more rooms available. They had a few when I called the other day. Good luck.
