My wife and I are moving from LA to ATL next week. We have a rental truck and are pulling the bikes on our Kendon trailer. I have a Triumph Explorer 1200 and she has a V-Strom 650. Since we have 8 days to get there, we were thinking about unloading the bikes a couple of times for day rides. So, here are my questions: 1. If we take the southern route using I-10 and I-20, are there any interesting "must ride" locations along the way? (Texas Hill Country comes to mind). 2. If we head across HWY 40, are there any "must rides" along that route? 3. Is there anyone along either route that is available next week and is feeling friendly enough to host us for a ride? (Not expecting a place to stay, just a half-day or full-day ride. Any input or suggestions welcome.
