    Hi All...

    i am (ever soooo slowly) planning a MAJOR trip for next spring... still not sure if i can pull it off, but have to start planning and just HOPE it all comes together...

    i plan to leave NJ ~4/15/09 to get to CA (figure it will take ~10 days) where i have to work on a project for 2-3 weeks, then i'll head home to NJ again...

    all plans are very sketchy at this point, but i will be using my 2001 f650gs (which i have had for ~2 years now, been riding for ~4 and have ~20 k miles under my wheels)...

    i was wondering if anyone had some GPS tracks that would fit the below possible routes:


    NJ->CA-SFB area (hanging a low arch and passing through NM - have a sister there)

    CA-SFB area->NJ (hanguing a high arch, perhaps swinging in a Great Lake tour)

    ?

    any suggestions would be apprecaited...

    That's an incredibly easy route to make, you could do that in 30 seconds with mapsource installed.. hell, you could do it on the GPS in a few minutes. What GPS do you have? Most will allow you to enter California as the destination and then simply add a via point in NM (for example).

    Since this starts and ends in NJ and you are looking for tracks, We'll start it out in this forum.

    sorry, i guess i really did not make myself as clear as i could've...

    i'm looking for routes (or portions there of) between these 2 distinations that others found neat/fun/etc...

    i guess "tracks" as someone mentioned is what i really want, but GPS routes that were used to aquire those "tracks" are just as good...

    i do have map source and know how to use it, i was merely looking for advice for the best riding roads between here and there...

    i have a garmin vista CX etrex...

    thanks...

    THANKS!

    i was unsure as to which forum to drop this in, but to be honest, i have ridden pretty much all of JERSEY, so i'd really be interested in non-NJ tracks/routing heading west-ish (though am thinking that heading a little south first might make the most sense)...

    curious.... i did not realize there was a "trip planning" forum, should this thread be moved there?
