Planning on trying to do a 4 day motorcycle trip (Friday and Monday are used for all departure/return driving time). Have a custom Honda cruiser. Will depart on a Friday morning mid July from southern NH (home) to an hour south of Buffalo NY. That should take about a good 10 hours (with rest stops, breaks, lunch, etc). Then upon arrival near Buffalo Fri night, unpack, rest all night at relatives house.
Heres the idea....
Get up mid morning on Sat (say 8:30), check bike, polish it up slightly, gas up, then would like to head right up to Niagara Falls. After Niagara Falls, would like to go around at least a portion of one of the Lakes in a nature setting, preferrably an area with some smooth pavement, not much traffic, full of twists and turns, and glacier scraped rocks with open lake views. Looking for tips here, or how far its possible to go/return from an hour south of Buffalo NY during one day on a motorcycle ride in the Lakes area (after stopping at Niagara Falls for a quick pic)? Seems there are plenty of suggested paths available on the internet, whats hard to find are any estimated time tables. Trying to basically do a day trip from an hour south of Buffalo, stop at the falls, then use the remainder of the day for a lakes tour and make it back to (an hour south of) Buffalo around 7pm. Mileage isnt the issue, as much as time. Any plans/tips are very welcome (including awesome stops for a break).
Sunday - family reunion day.
Monday, sleep in a bit, 10 hour route back to southern NH.
