I am contemplating a two week solo ride to the NY/NJ area from Los Angeles around the end of July and the beginning of August, riding approximately 500 miles a day. Initially, I planned to go for the Woodstock 50th Anniversary shows though my plans have changed due to my wife's work schedule... blah, blah.
So, I would like to cover Route 66 either as a start to the trip, or on the return portion because I plan to visit with family in Chicago. I would also like to visit family near Raleigh, NC... and, family in parts of NJ for some leg of the trip.
(NOTE: I haven't ridden a motorcycle solo cross-country in 30 years ('81 KZ750 with camping gear, full leathers, underwear, socks, cash, and a credit card). I have driven many routes cross-country using variations on the 1, 8, 9, 10, 11, 5, 6 [see screen shot from the website: https://roadtripusa.com
...by car, or van over the years.)
My 2000 K1200LT is almost ready... new tires, new lighting, gps, dual cameras, travel tool kit, spare parts, etc.,
I plan to ship fluids, and filters to family in NJ so I can ready the bike for a safe return...
I also plan to buy a bag for the tank, and a portable gas container.
Thanks in advance!
