So Mandy and I have been talking about this year’s road trip. In 2014 we rode to The Grand Canyon, in 2015 we rode to Tennessee for the 4th of July, and in 2016 we tode to the Salt Flats. This year we are looking to take a trip….. up North.
Deciding the destination:
While the destination is not the most important part. What not the destination! Then what?! As a biker, planning is half the adventure. Finding a route (then finding a better one), small towns,and picking strategic gas stations to let your bumm rest.
Using our benchmark of 300 miles a day (sightseeing day) and 700 miles a day (get-me-off this thing day) we decided to have a sightseeing motorcyle road trip this year. With an average of 300 miles a day, we computed that for a 6 day round trip we can travel a total of 1,800 miles. That was the hard part believe it or not.
We been East and South but the North has been calling!
Okay. Now for the destination. What is 900 miles away from Los Angeles that is North? Oregon. Idaho. Wyoming.
Hmmm, what state to choose.
