Hi all from a newbie Brit,
Some pals and I are planning a 'mid-life crisis' road trip on motorcycles in September this year and would really appreciate any useful suggestions/tips/tricks/routes etc. anyone can offer to help our planning.
Originally we were doing a round trip in and out of LA but we now favour flying into Phoenix and out of LA.......here's our outline plan.
Phoenix-->Flagstaff-->Vegas (via Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam) -->San Francisco (via Death Valley & Yosemite). We then plan a rest day in San Francisco, before poodling down the Pacific Highway to LA, stopping overnight en-route somewhere near the mid-point.
We have 9 nights planned, but the first one will be in Phoenix and we will pick the bikes up the following morning.
Would really appreciate any help you are able to offer, including an idea of what we can expect the weather to be like (hopefully nice and warm!)
