My wife and I are planning our trip for mid-May 2017. Our plan is to ship our motorcycle to San Francisco and then fly out there. Spend a few days traveling the Pacific Coast Highway down to Santa Monica and then head east on 66 from there. We are planning on 4 weeks.
I am looking for some suggestions on what are must-do's and what should be avoided. I am particularly interested in getting some insights from those that have done it on a motorcycle before
Hi, yes I think it is being tarted up!! so might not be redirecting. We were definitely surprised at the cross winds especially in New Mexico very scary, and a lot of the actual route had loose gravel sections which our hired Harley, two people and top box and panniers stuffed with luggage did not like, the back wheel slid around so much we avoided them, at one point at the end (it will be your beginning) of Missouri I ended up walking a mile while my husband gingerly edged the bike along it.
More tomorrow, I found the EZ Guide to dinning and lodging invaluable, and the Lonely Planet for things to do, a small book so easy to keep in your luggage. Sat nav useful but keep trying to default to the interstate, which you do need when the roads are in poor repair or just plain disappear!!!!
