We`re a norwegian couple that are going to spend about 2 weeks in and around Los Angeles in the beginning of september this year. We have never been to the States before and are really appreciative for any advice we can get! The trip we are planning starts by spending a couple of days in San Francisco for then to hire a convertible and taking the coast-route down to LA. After spending some time sightseeing there, we`re thinking about driving through the Mojave desert to Las Vegas. We`re really not much of gamblers but was hoping to perhaps rent a couple of Harleys from there and take a one- or two-day trip to Grand Canyon. Does this trip sound ok at all? Are there any places we should add or loose? Does anyone know how long the individual parts of the trip takes driving-wise? Is this a trip you would recommend first-time visitors?
