Went last year, also on an '07 990. Had Heidenaus, great for slab or rock/gravel/dirt (just not sand but you wont see any of that). Rode up from Brooklyn on slab then took nothing but backroads home, beautiful.

There were good places to eat throughout each day. Unless they've changed the route, you save a ton of space w/o cooking gear.
I use a big agnes to sleep on also, very comfy but takes me a bit more than 12 breaths.
It's a great event, have fun.
