This is my first post on this forum. I see that there are many nice people writing very useful information here so I'm hoping to obtain some :).
Me and my girlfriend (we are from Israel) are getting married next year (June or July 2010), and for our honeymoon we had this idea of doing a coast to coast trip on motorbikes in the USA.
We were thinking of taking something like 3 to 4 weeks for this, and the idea would be to lay back and have a nice calm trip across nice towns and interesting places. We were also considering maybe doing some parts on motorbikes and others in a car.
So here are a few of my most basic questions (we'll start from this...):
1. What would be a recommended itinerary for a trip like this?
2. Are 3 to 4 weeks a reasonable time for this kind of trip?
3. How easy is it to rent bikes/cars and exchange them along the road? Can someone recommend any particular rental company for this?
4. My driver's license allows me in Israel to drive bikes up to 500cc, are there similar laws in the USA?
Well, I think that's all for now, this should give me a good start for planning.
Thanks in advance!
