I could not agree with you more. I need to be able to blast through twisty roads on a regular basis.

I had fun blasting through NYC traffic on 2 wheels... Mind you, I didn't find out until a few weeks ago that lane splitting was actually illegal there, though none of the cops I passed seemed to mind...

They probably didn't want to deal with the traffic to catch up with you.

The traffic was at a standstill. (Jen and Ken will *fondly* recall). T'was the same in the city, so I just... went through the open spots... (I was courteous though andk kept the speed differential to no more than 10 mph).

I like the group hotel idea...

The hotels are split into 2 main locations, bi-sected by that busy 4 lane road (Rt 22). So we should pick one of the following

First Choice: Hilton Garden and Super 8 are right across the parking lot from each other. Holiday Inn across a small access road from these two. The Hilton Garden was perfectly nice for the price, albeit a bit noisy from all the whippersnapper little leaguers.

Otherwise, Red Roof and Clarion are across that busy four lane road. Courtyard is right next to the stadium, but there is no low cost option.

Bottom line, I say we book the Hilton or Super 8!
