My fiancée and I are getting married in June of 2014 then going on a 30 day ride from Bend, Oregon to Vermont and back to Oregon. Our possible route there may be like this. OR, ID, NV, UT or AZ, CO or NM, OK, AR, TN, VA or KY, WV, PA, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, NH, VT. Haven't even thought about the return route yet, we are in the very begining of the planning stages. What we are looking for. Back roads dirt or paved. Rural communities. Twisty county roads. The backbone of America. To stay off interstates. A little about us. We both are experienced riders that average 10k+ a year of on and off road riding. We love camping. When I say camping, I mean throwing a bag on the ground under the stars by a creek in the woods or the desert, not a developed campground. We are well equipped with all the gear to be self supported for a day, week, month, or years off our bikes, and are very experienced using it. I ride a freshly rebuilt plated Honda XR600R, LittlePosum rides a Suzuki DRZ400S. Yes we're doing this on dirt bikes. Yes we're both a little crazy, that's why we're together! I'm starting this thread to try and find those hidden spots across the country. I'm not really interested in the TAT, except for maybe some parts in AR, and TN. Prefer to plan our own rides and find places that no one really ever talks about. I appreciate any input! One more thing, I've travelled by car from coast to coast several times now and have always wanted to do it by bike. I know how much you miss just being on the interstates! That said I also realize how long of a journey this will be!
