'07 Killington Classic

Am thinking about heading to this event ... more for the riding than the event -- but wondered if anyone had any impressions they'd like to share.

I was at Americade in June '07 and at Bike Week (Daytona) Mar '07 so any comparisons made to those events would be helpful for me.

Having been to Americade I KNOW there is some absolutely incredible riding in that area. I'm traveling from New Brunswick so planning to ride Route 2 from Newport ME to just past Montpelier -- then down 100 to Killington.

Would like to take a little different track back -- but if I could keep the total distance down to about 500 miles that would make for a nice day's riding. Interstates are not a problem but also not preferred.

Anything you can share would be great!

Killington Classic
I have stopped by a couple of years. Newer and smaller rally than Americade. I am not a rally goer so my opinions aren't worth much regarding the "quality" of the rally. It is in the heart of some nice riding.

Route Suggestions:
reasonably direct, reasonably fast roads, not too many real twisties:
Maine rte 2 to Gorham NH.
Route 16 south to 112 (Kangamagus Highway).
West to Lincoln NH and continue west to rte 118.
Rte 25 south to 25A.
Cross the CT river into VT in Orford.
Take rte 5 south to White River Junction.
Rte 4 west to Woodstock (watch for speed trap).
Rte 100 north to Killington.
