I'm currently planning a road-trip from Montreal to California (Oakland) on my motorcycle.
I will be leaving Montreal on May 28th and the best arrival date for me in Oakland would be June 15th (19 days total).
I'm finding myself a bit overwhelmed about which beautiful routes to take in order to get to Oakland without taking huge highways which are totally boring, especially on a motorbike.
So I was hoping for a few advices and interesting roads to take to make this road-trip one of the best moments of my life !
I have made a really rough roadmap just to get a first idea of the mileage / duration : https://goo.gl/31kR3H
During my research, I saw a few road names popping up like Ausable Chasm and the Tail of the Dragon, that's why I specifically added them.
I don't know if going to New-Orleans is really a must, I just thought it would be great, but it definitely adds miles ...
I won't be camping, I'll try to find a few couchsurfing hosts in specific places I know I'll reach (like New-Orleans for example), and the rest in motels / not too expensive hotels.
On the motorcycle side, I pretty much know everything I have to pack and still have to buy to be ready.
I plan on getting a data plan from Roam Mobility to be able to use the my phone's GPS (Google Maps probably), I won't be buy a standalone GPS.
I'm really open to ideas / advices of any kind / etc ...
Thank you very much,
