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.

Hey JaysunOne, I see Sacramento is on your map. I live here in Sac. If you need a place to couch-surf for the night, you are welcome at my humble abode.
Madbuyer stayed here once too...

Jon I might take you up on that offer.

I have taken the rc51 up and down the eastcoast mtl to fl a few times. this trip on a 51 is a one time thing for me. Wyoming roads are the reason why I took this trip amazing.

a few pictures of the last few days enjoy















Started my day riding throu the badlands SD, stopped at the Crazyhorse Memorial 20 minutes before a blast, 700tons of rock was broken loose. then made it to Devils Tower met a few local adventure riders they sheared a camp sight with me. the next morning I was going around a bend at 80 and missed a deer by 2 feet scared the shit out of me. Didnt see it till it was in my way 15foot in front of me. Wyoming roads are amazing those last three are in Wyoming. Just imagin 2 solid hour of fast sweepers, perfect pavment, and almost no traffic. I can do that all day everyday. The smile on my face was hugh.

Dude! Awesome! I rode from Sacramento to Phoenix and back in June on my '01 and I KNOW that you've gotta be hard to ride that bike that far. I agree with atvrcr500 about riding in AZ, check out Tortilla Flats, AZ good day ride. Have fun
