It started with a phone call to my friend Steve. Steve lives in England and I live in Mexico City. We were talking about bikes and Steve said he liked to ride more than restore bikes. For some reason we came up with a plan of going to California and riding around with frequent stops for ice cream. We are both 65 and retired or semi retired. Quite a bit of thinking went on over the next few months. I found a company that rents bikes in Redondo Beach. Steve will rent a Yamaha FZ07. Steve will fly into LA around March 24 and I will leave home March 10. We will camp, use Tent Space and the occasional hotel. The route will include LA, PCH, San Francisco, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and a lot in between. Steve will fly home around May 26, hence the 2 month part and I will ridehome. 2 months for Steve around 3 months for me. It is Steve's first big trip and his first time in the USA. I have traveled a fair bit, especially since I retired. We already have some great people from Tent Space who will put us up but will contact more as the trip progresses. Please give us any suggestions you think may help us on our trip. Pics to come once I get on the road.
