[USA] Advice? any Touring Tips would be appreciated has anyone toured the USA? (mid-west/west-coast) - any tips? - hire companies? one way hire? - which route? where would you suggest to go? - what is the most secure/appropriate accommodation for someone riding a bike? most likely, i will be starting in Milwaukee (MKE) or Chicago, and heading to Los Angeles (LAX). thinking of doing it over two weeks. considering taking my helmet with me, and buying the rest of the necessary gear over there. PS; being so unplanned it is a little unsettling for me. 8-[ just got back from vacation and was looking forward to settling in back at home. next day, my boss asked/told me i have to fly next week. now thinking i will make the most of it, and tack two weeks onto the end.
