This will be a little area for me to post/share pictures/talk about any rides I have done and are planning on doing in the future. 
 
I'll start off with today's ride to the Hawks Nest in New York. Trip distance 175 miles, average consumption 54mpg, two up with GF. We started in Flemington and ride to the Hawks Nest just outside of Port Jervis, NY then stopped at the Chatterbox on the way home for lunch. Overall a very comfortable ride for myself and about 10 times better than two up on the Buell Blast I was riding a few months ago. Tires were amazing (no surprise there) and the FZ handles two up as if you didn't even have a passenger at all. This is currently the longest trip I have done on the FZ and hopefully there will be many more long trips like this. I am still planning my day trip to Canada (850 mile round trip to  Niagra Falls and Toronto) I am currently looking into GPS options for the bike, off anyone has suggestions let me know. I am currently looking at the TomTom Rider for $399.
 
Some pictures from the Hawks Nest and Chatterbox.

Wow, that is quite a ride. Looks like fun. Be sure to post pics of the falls, the Canadian side of course. And do the Maid of the Mist thing. It's funny to see all those people in blue rain coat bags. Like a boat full of blue penguins.

I did the Maid Of Mist in 2005, its an amazing sight, and pretty inexpensive. I think its somewhere around $30cad.

Bling Blinghamton!(Sorry). If you a route through Ithaca and the finger lakes region doesn't add too much time I'd recommend it, It's a beautiful area.

Rough draft of my cheat-sheet is complete for both to and from Niagra plus a possible side trip to the Hockey Hall Of Fame in Toronto.
 
Total distance with Toronto is roughly 1,438km/891.6mi
Total distance without Toronto is roughly 1,190km/737.8mi
 
Now after work to type it up and add some visuals to aide off I need to look quickly for road and exit numbers, then back to work Monday to laminate it so I don't have to worry about rain as much.

All finalized, just laminated it and letting it sit in the rain to make sure it will survive.
I'm excited for Friday.

That is very impressive! It is going to be a great road trip I am sure. Too bad Toronto is as far as you will go. I would give you a free coffee (and maybe a cookie) if you made it all the way to Delta ON.
