I'd be up for that. A few options near the motel. Tavern, smokehouse & a seafood joint.

Awesome, just awesome!!!....spent Monday night and Tuesday at Club Motorsports in Tamworth,NH with @dadridesagain , @Slowdive ,Swiss Farm Roger and our host Fishtail Riding School.
We got there in time Monday evening for a track walk. Great insight from lead instructors Tim Hafner and Robi Nigle. Line selection, track visual points...just fantastic!
We woke up to rain with drying forecasted around noon.
After tech inspection and general meeting/classroom we set off in our respective groups.
The first 3 sessions were wet/showers but the track is designed so well it drained beautifully with french drains in all the concrete curbing.
The track features 2.4 miles, 15 turns, 250' of elevation change(about 1000' if you consider how many times you climb and descend) and wide layout.
The grin factor is huge and we all had a great experience.
I would like to thank Bruce Meyers for his instruction/insight and making this track day the best/most fun learning experience! My helmet off to you, Bruce!
Thanks to the rest of the staff of Fishtail and Club Motorsports for a great experience... we'll be back!
A couple pix of track walk, notice the backdrop(mountains...), you never see it when riding but the views around the track are spectacular.NEECM II-img_20190610_182019748_1560424790551.jpgNEECM II-img_20190610_184328231_hdr_1560424753279.jpg

Apologies, me camera is on acid. Pics taken from service lane. When I saw it for the first time I went a little woozy myself.

Track is insane, great day. Thanks too rich people with expensive cars its unbelievably good! Pristine tarmac, wide, huge elevation changes. Has 8 miles of drainage and in the mountains so it dried off very fast after 1.5" of early morning rain. The first session after lunch it was 85% dry.

We made up for a wet morning by running double sessions in the afternoon. I got in 8 sessions but @flynnmon wins the participation award, he might have gotten 10 or 11.
