Next year I am planning a trip to the USA in April / May for about 6 weeks. I will start in Colorado head south through New Mexico, east through Texas, into Arkansas, Tennessee and then make my way to and around the Appalachians. Then return to Colorado. I have done a previous trip covering the West side of the USA, so the focus this time is the mountains in the east and a travel through the south. I have been scouring these pages for information and there is lots of great stuff about the famous rides in and around the Appalachians and the Ozarks. I have also read about the Hill Country in Texas, but I am struggling to find information about routes through New Mexico and Texas. Any ideas would be welcome. I favour small roads, lots of curves, I will be in no rush. I enjoy any sort of music, so any information on musical events would be appreciated. I chose April / May to avoid the worse of the heat/humidity in the south and hopefully have reasonable weather (no ice or snow) in the Appalachians and perhaps do some camping along the way? Are these realistic assumptions? A last question? I intend to buy a bike in Colorado and then sell it there at trip end. Any ideas about what bikes sell easily (and are reliable)? I need the bike sold quickly at the end of the trip. I ride a BMW gs TC here in Europe, but the initial outlay for one of those would be too high and I have no idea what the market would be for an older BMW gs within my price range? I would like to stay under a purchase price of $5000 if possible? The minimum size engine would be 650cc and it does not have to be a dual sport bike. Thanks in advance.
