Looking for some advice from all you peeps. Heading for Yellowstone-Las Angeles and back via Pacific Coast Highway in about 2 weeks. Any ideas on what to see or avoid? Plan is for tenting along the way and hotel every 2-3 days or as needed. Only have 2 1/2 weeks so should be able to tear up some road. Any help will be of great use.
Thanks in advance
Kevin

My advice:

1) invest in a good thick sheepskin for sitting on. It helps prevent "monkey-butt"- the prickly heat rash you WILL get otherwise. No fun riding on an itchy butt! The thicker teh wool/fur, the better!
2) invest in a very good air mattress or inflatable bed. The smallest pebble feels HUGE under your back after riding for 10 hours.
3) take a cooler with you and keep bottled water in it. The club did Sturgis in 2003, and I had my old cooler "Big Red" strapped onto the passenger seat the whole trip. Everyone stayed hydrated and that is very important - we had temps around 100F, and you will get at least that when you get near LA
4) <chuckle> be sure to take lots of wooden stakes - Los Angeles is full of vampires! Just watch some reruns of Angel - you'll see! Twisted Evil

I'd also advise investing or building a handlebar mount for your camera. But it depends on how you like to travel- stopping to take pics or taking pics/videos while travelling.... affraid

And have fun!

What a ride. 10 days and just short 0f 10,000km. Bear-tooth pass was opened a couple of days before I got there and was cold at the top with skiers and snowmobiles everywhere. Thought I was in a tad of trouble at the top when a strong wind only gac=ve about 10-15 ft visibility. Yellowstone was great as usuall. Never saw old faithful at nite. Very nice. Las vegas was hot and Hard Rock Cafe was cool. Death Valley was amazeing.(44c) Red Wood forest was treat. Just right temp, nice sweepers mixed with switch-backs. Trees thet you can ride through. (2500 years old and still growing) Pacific cost highway was beautiful as well. Then back into washingto/spokane, BC, and home. Camping was a lot of fun. Food was great. People were friendly. (always a story to be told at the gas stations)
Thought I would update the group on some of me expiditions for this year.
East coast in Sept.
