A cross country bike trip would be a blast! One of these days when I get a few extra weeks off of work it's something I'd consider.
Definitely recommend taking a motorcycle trip at least once. A lot of fun and something I think I'll remember the rest of my life.
Wow, just caught up on your blog... Haven't seen you on MNSBR in a while so I guess this is why haha.
I wish I would've known you were in San Fran around the 13th... I was in the area for WSBK; could've met up. Oh well. Pretty awesome trip! I think I may have to plan something similar for next year... any tips/suggestions/things you would have done differently?
Haha yep, didn't go on forums while out on the road and mnsbr doesn't seem to load right most days at work.
That would've been cool to meet up, could've picked your brain on some mods and even check out some racing!
I was super glad I had a pair of cold weather/water proof gloves and some cold gear under armor. It got awfully cold on the coast even in the middle of July. I'd also suggest trying to stick to roads other than interstates, a lot more fun to ride for me. GPS was also something I don't think I would want to do without if you have some really good roads already picked out.
I think the only thing I'd do differently would be to plan at least a day or two extra to relax when you get back before going to work. That way you can have a bit of a buffer so if you want to stay somewhere an extra day or hit weather you can not stress out about getting back to work.
I think I'm going to have to take you up on one of your flashes! I'll send ya a pm soon
