Been reading this thread with some interest. I have two weeks off work beginning next week. All along, I've been planning to go to the BMW MOA Rally in Salem, Oregon because I'm pretty sure it will be gorgeous in that area and I've never been to the west coast. I live in Northwest Ohio and have recently been having doubts about doing this ride. Approximately 2,500 miles one way. I'm usually ok with 400-mile days, but would have to do 500 / day on my Tiger 800XC to make it in 5 days. That would be 10 days of commuting for 5 days of being there. Am considering wussing out and making a total change of plans, but don' know what yet. Open to any suggestions.
