Multi 1,000 mile trips solo are undescribable to anyone who has never done it. Enjoy yourself and stay safe!:thumbsup:

stop off at bonneville on the way It is awe inspiring a huge mass of white with mountains in the background may be makin a trip similar to yours if I have the funds to do so, god knows I've got the vacation time. Just a heads up keep an eye on your fuel and your next nearest gas station cause there are areas where there is no help for a looooong ways. And most of all stop often for great photos and enjoy the trip man. :thumbsup::bowdown:

:welcome: to the show!

And what show it will be for you with a coast to coast journey like that! Awsome!

Sorry I can't join you, but it sounds like you won't be passing through my neck o' the woods.

Be safe and be sure to keep us updated here.

Doing "squats" and other glute exercises while riding will help keep the saddle pain down. Try to do them often at least at 30-45 minute intervals so that your glutes stay pumped avoiding compression and tailbone pain.

What kind of luggage system will you use for the journey?

Post up your route once you get it figured out. I've had good luck in the past with people helping me when I'm traveling (near sites to see, food, lodging).

It's good to meet and talk to someone a while to break the grind of the road.

If you want to borrow my saddlebags just let me know. They're not huge but will carry extra stuff like rainsuit and shoes, etc. Softsided and fit under the rear seat.

Also, don't wear the rucksack, it will seriously cause you massive discomfort. Strap it to the back seat.

You can kinda see them here

Leave that fuggin rucksack at home. You will thank me for it later. Backpacks of any kind are a major pain in the neck after a couple of hours on the bike. Trust me, you do not want to wear a backpack/rucksack of any type on the motorcycle over longdistances. Take a tank bag with a hydration system and/or a tailbag system.
