Default 2012 - 7 (or more??) state ride. Delaware? Pennsylvania? New Jersey?

Let's get this discussion going and decide which states we want to do.

For those not in the loop, in 2010, 13 bikes from the New England/New York area rode all 6 New England states, plus New York, in one day. It was a 400 mile ride and it took approximately 11 hours and we had an absolute blast. It's probably one of my fondest motorcycling memories.

So, my question is, some of us in western mass have already begun loosely discussion the subject, but let's get some destinations and dates nailed down because I really want to do this again (maybe multiple times if time allows). I know Gregstur discussed some possibilities of Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Any other ideas? Any route possibilities? Let's get this planned early!!

Hmmm sounds fun, if I could work out the time frame from Tennessee I would be very interested.

why not another 6 stater beginning in southern NJ..down thru deleware, quick right into Maryland,head toward the tip of Virginia, then start heading north cutting thru W virginia and finish in Penn. Of course,could always start somewhere around Waynesboro Pa and do it backwards heading first towards WV...and so forth...whatever is finally decided on...it will be fun. Good job in getting this started Heather. Hope it goes off.
