Good on you for this.....be careful when you get to the Pacific Coast Highway, they are redoing a lot of bridges and it is sloooooooow moving.

If you get tired through this area, Elko Nevada is nice.

Ride Safe!

Enjoy your trip as I enjoy riding my cross-country as well. When in AZ look up some of the folks there as the ride in that area is AWESOME as I found out during the spring this year. Salt River Canyon was awesome along with riding with AV8R27 up around Prescott. If you need help I'm in the flatlands of Kansas and will try to get you help. I normally run the sport saddlebags which help with the load.

A fellow Canadian? Dude you are one hard M*****F*****! Good on ya, if it was me though I would ride something a bit more forgiving. But hell if you can do it do it.

Have a safe trip! Lots of pics, too bad you won't make my left coast.

Agreed!!!
The only way I would do that route, is on a GoldWing.
