I'm planning to buy a bike off a friend in LA shortly and as the title states, I was hoping to ride it most (or all of the way) back to Van this month (next weekend actually + however many weekdays it takes on top).
Could you seasoned veterans who have experience with this ride (I'd prefer to take the coast over the I5), offer me some insight/advice?
How long should I expect the trip to take if ridden at a sane, reasonable pace. Do you figure the April weather will be too unpredictable and crappy for this to be an enjoyable experience? Can you recommend routes, places to stay?
FYI the bike is an 1100 Hypermotard, I'm used to naked bikes so let's avoid discussing the touring pros/cons of this machine. My only real concern is the size of the fuel tank, and the distances between gas stations.
My hope is to make it at least into Oregon before having to meet up with a support vehicle from Van...
Thanks in advance!
