    So when does this ride start? I know weather in New York looks pretty cold today. I am in Maryland next to the mountains if you need help on anything let me know.
    Have a great time.

    You are in the REAL Northern California as I am.

    If the OP makes it up here be sure to contact us. Maybe a ride through Lassen Park or Hwy 36 to the Coast.......

    Ah, I love finding other girl riders! What month do you think you'll be going through California, Oregon and Washington states? How long is the trip (in time)? I'm riding a motorcycle up from Argentina right now. Should be home by North American summer (August I think). If you go through Seattle, send me a message.

    Take care! The States are gorgeous (make sure to buy an annual National Parks Pass!)

    In the summer of 2012, my wife, Nina, and I made a lap around the United States on Bearshark the Bonneville T100. I think you've picked a great motorcycle for the ride.

    I'm in.

    When you get near SoCal, let me know. I should be back riding by then (thanks, U-turning cager :asshat) and would be pleased to show you the area and invite you to dinner with some of the folks I ride with out here.

    Here's my trip across the lower part of the country that may give you some ideas of what to see and ride (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=787688)

    Looking forward to meeting you.

    Not sure how long you plan on making this trip but you can't leave out Sturgis in August! That's something you would never forget.

    If you make it up this way (South Dakota), drop me a line and we will show you around and buy you lunch.
