Hello all, i'm new here but i wish i had seen this site months ago ! I've just returned to Ireland from travelling Route 66 with my wife. We rode it on a H.D ultra glide and it was fantastic, 19 days of pure discovery channel, and some of the friendliest people i have ever come across. I've been to the U.S a few times but i always knew there was a real America out there with real people and i found it. Now of course i've been bitten and want to do it again. I would like to ride from San Diego to Portland in Oregon (i have relatives there), has to be by bike as i do not drive a car.Is it possible to stick to a coastal route on 2 lane roads ? When would be the best time of year ? I would be planning on taking 3 weeks, stopping off in small towns for overnights. Any help would be greatly appreciated and the favour returned for anyone coming to Ireland.
