    Cross County Trip - Phase 2 - Itinerary

    Thanks for all thos who commented on Leather vs. Textile. After 2 long days testing each, I agree that textile is just going to be more versatile, comfortable and easy to deal with.

    Next up, the itinerary. I've worked up the following:

    Day Date Destination Distance
    1 7/8 Santa Monica, CA 133
    2 7/9 Pacific Grove, CA 341
    3 7/10 Garberville, CA 362
    4 7/11 Klamath Fall, OR 381
    5 7/12 Boise, ID 422
    6 7/13 West Yellowstone, MT 389
    7 7/14 Sheridan, WY 295
    8 7/15 Keystone, SD 263
    9 7/16 Sioux Falls SD 364
    10 7/17 Kansas City, MO 367
    11 7/18 Marion, IL 365
    12 7/19 Alcoa, TN 371
    13 7/20 Roanoke, VA 419
    14 7/21 Washington, DC 295
    15 7/22 Home 459

    Highlights include The PCH, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, the Dragon and the BRP.

    How the heck did you do that? I wanna make a map with my route on it and I don't know how. Nice trip by the way.

    The map is done in MapSource for my Garmin. I then took a picture of it with A screen cap program. Eventually, it will be the set of routes I add into the GPS. Each day is a separate route.

    Why don't you add www.amavintagemotorcycledays.com to your trip and hook up with me in the pits and hang out. The roadracing pits I mean.

    Re: Cross County Trip - Phase 2 - Itinerary

    I'd skip the PCH through LA (it's just light after light after light...) and take Route 74 (Ortega Highway) east, find a path to Route 2 (Angeles Crest Highway) west and then pick up the PCH in Santa Monica. Perhaps that's your plan all along...

    Bump for lack of interest

    Anything longer than a day too long?

    Re: Cross County Trip - Phase 2 - Itinerary

    Glad to opted for Angeles Crest and Ortega vs PCH through OC and LA.

    Skip the PCH between Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay (it's pretty dull). Instead, take 9 east to 236 in Boulder Creek, back to 9 east to 35 north to 92 west. It's a fun route through some redwoods and over the ridge of the Santa Cruz mountains.. Boulder Creek is a funky little town to stop in too.
