for sure hit up HWY 1 as far north as you can. i believe it goes all the way to washington, but i could be wrong. HWY1 from coos bay, all the way south to monterey is some of the most scenic roads you will ever ride on. north of eureka is the most lush forests you will see on yout trip, and HUGE redwoods to boot. watch out for the elk though, they really mess up a 10R, not to mention the jockey. from monterey to vegas, i would keep heading south on hwy1 till you get to hwy 58, which will take you east and drop you onto I5 near buttonwillow. hwy 58 is Road and Track magazine's favorite back-road romp, commonly refered to as "cali's mille migllia" (sp). its a BAD ASS road, unfortunelty i've only driven it in my toyota tacoma, but i still had fun. where it drops you out might be boring, but it would be worth it, imo. you could check google for a nice route to vegas from buttonwillow. good luck bro, need any more info, hit me up. i know lots of good camping spots between coos bay, or, and san fran, so let me know.
