Hi guys, I plan on doing my first real road trip on my bike. I plan on riding from Switzerland over the "Route du Napoléon" through France, along the coast to Pisa and then north again through the Toscana and Northern Italy. It comes to about 1300 miles, I only have a maximum time of 8 days available, university continues again after that. Do you experienced guys think this'll work? Or is it too long a route for only a week? Also, what is there to be aware of? I have a large bag I'll try to strap on the tail which should be enough, considering I'll also be carrying a small rucksack. I don't plan on making any reservations or big plans, I will just ride along and sleep wherever they have a room.
