Hi fellow road trippers! I'm planning a motorcycle trip of a lifetime! My goal is, in 30 days, to go from Ft Bragg, NC to Chicago via the Tale of the dragon and the skyway. Once I get to Chicago, I'm travelling Route 66 to Santa Monica. If I can do it without hurrying myself, I would like to finish off in Portland OR (originally home) for a week and then back to Bragg. If I have time I'm going to take a scenic route back as well. My question, fellow travellers, is there anyone wanting to join this trip for a day or two. I'm simply looking for another bike (or car!) I'm looking to do this trip in April/May of 2013 timeframe, when it's still not hot in the south but not cold in the north. It's not my intent to get anywhere in particular, I want to find some great roads, great people, and travel route 66. I don't have a bike currently. I sold mine before I deployed. I'm looking to buy a HD Road King (or something similair) for this trip. I've wanted to take this trip for a long time and I am dropping 30 days of leave for it, so I'm not hurried. Any advice on nice roads, rides, mom and pop b&b's/restaurants or anything else that comes to mind, please reply. I'm not looking for "best of" stuff, just what you've found interesting along these areas. I'm not set on a hard course yet, I'm really open for suggestions. Thank you for your time!
