New York City to San Francisco on a KLR 650

In the last part of last year I decided that 2009 would be the year that I ride a moto from NYC to SF and so tomorrow (yup tomorrow) I'm going to start that adventure. My planned ride will see me go from NYC to Toronto over the top of the Great Lakes back down through the mid-west region (Kansas City, since I know people there) head over to Bolder, CO, spend some time in the twisty mountain area, head down past the Grand Canyon, visit Lost-and-Vague-as (aka Las Vegas) head to LA and finally up to San Francisco along Highway 1.

You'll be able Tweet me for my location here:-

Or just flat out stalk me here:-

My original plan was to operate a kind of real time (or more likely updated whenever I found some net feed) photo feed since I have a camera mounted to the front of my bike set to take a shot every 30 seconds. As it turns out I have 80% of the backend for such a system written but time as gotten the better of me and I'm going to have to go with what I have, that is, collect photos and most 'em manually when I get a chance.

A note to the guys I met at the Twisted Throttle BBQ a few months back, I managed to loose your contact details so do get back in touch with me. Roy with your moto-office on the V-Strom, I still think back to your bike and marvel at the bike you've created, kudos to you.

Cheers,
N

I'm sending NdJ the hell out of this area because his name is far too similar to mine.

Good luck, ride safe, and keep us posted.

If you can avoid riding through Toronto, you'd avoid some major (chicago style) traffic.. Good luck on your adventure
