Our forum friends have offered a bunch of great suggestions for you. Living in Central NY (Syracuse) we've ridden all those areas and always see something new. The ride we took through the Adirondacks to Burlington, VT was the best, though. The adirondacks route to the ferry across Lake Champlain is great and the roads out of Burlington, particularly along the VT side of Champlain are spectacular. You have awesome roads in TN, but you'll love the Adirondacks Mountains and lakes. The seaway trail and Alexandria Bay area are a good run. If you take I-81 up into Syracuse, the Dinosaur Barbecue is a good lunch or dinner stop. Plenty of bikes to look over and the food is great. If you opt for Gettysburg, I'd be sure to take US-15 from as close to Winchester as you can and then continue right up into Corning/Ithaca, NY and then 13 is a good bikers route north. Not having a map in front of me, you might have to take 14 as a connector between the two routes. 15 will bring you up through Williamsport to Corning, a very mountainous route, good in the good weather, but very bad in the rain.
While I have no extra room, if you opt for a stop in Syracuse, I have a friend at the Ramada off the Interstate, who can usually offer a good rate. Hope you enjoy our state as much as I enjoyed yours! Ride safe!
