Hi all, In a couple of months I am visiting a friend in NY, and then a friend on West Coast USA on the way back to Aus. Initially I was thinking of flying across the continent and spending a week or more in Yosemite in between visits, but now it occurs to me that I might have enough time for biking across and taking in the Rockies as well. Its an embryonic idea at present, but has anyone here done big bike tours in USA? Im looking for advice on: - how long the trip might take? - international licensing issues? Im licensed but still with restrictions here - the motorcycle market there - buy/hire? Buy should be OK as I will have at least a week in NY, but I wonder if I could commission someone to sell it for me in San Fran. Or LA. - Route? Obviously it gets interesting at the Rockies but I am unsure what is of interest at that latitude in the East. - Hazards? Cheers for any advice or happy reminiscences you may have.
