Tell us where to go (Planning 3k mile ride - northwest....CA, NV, UT, ID, WA)

Since ADVRIDER and it's members provide such a wealth of information, I figured I'd ask for some help with planning our next big trip.
The GF and I are planning to do a +/- 3,000 mile loop like the one in the map below. We'll have about 13 days to do it and will be going towards the end of August. The original plan was to go up along the coast then thru Portland and Seattle and up into Victoria, but I thought something like what I have here would be the better way to go. We could always hit the coast on the way back. What I have mapped here is a rough idea of what I had in mind, but it seems like there's some mind-numbing sections in there. I haven't gotten into planning the ACTUAL roads we would take. I'd like to get people's input here before I start that process. Anyway.....
Here are my questions to everyone:
  1. Any suggestions on the route?
  2. What part of this route would you change?
  3. Any suggestions on different or additional destinations?
  4. What "must" roads would you recommend? (we're on 2 ducati's so no off-roading). We usually like to stay away from the interstates. Not as boring and gives a better feel for the towns we're going through.

As a side note: We've done multiple 3,000+ mile trips before, so we're not strangers to trips like this. Those trips though were on the east coast. This will be our first long trip out west and want to make the most of it.

Thanks to everyone for your input......
