Indianapolis-Colorado Springs- Vegas- 29 Palms- Long Beach

For the last 4 years justanotherguy (Adam) and I have been going on a road trip every Summer. The first 2 years we just went down to the Smokey Mountains and rode the roads there. Last year we did an east coast trip and went to Virginia Beach, the Smokies, then to Nashville, TN. This year we had originally planned to go to Colorado Springs and then into Montana to see some friends of mine I was in the Air Force with and then up to Going to the Sun Road. Well come to find out their guard weekend is the weekend we would arrive so I cam up with a plan B. I figured we touched the east coast last year we should probably touch the West coast. I randomly have a friend in 29 Palms and a friend in Long Beach so.. seems like a hell of a trip now. I'm going to do an active ride report and of course post some pictures and videos along the way. We are leaving Indianapolis Aug 31 and planning on returning September 13-15 time frame. I'm figuring we see a good 4500-5000 miles this trip. That's 7242-8046km for the ones using that system.

The Bikes:
2012 BMW F650gs
FZ1 ( I forget his year. He can chime in later if he wants. )

Don't be to suprised to see your mileage blow past your estimates.
