About 7 years ago (wow feels like 2), one of my best friends and I did a trip from NJ to San Francisco and back on our bikes. Did it in about a month sort crisscrossing our way around depending on where we had friends or family who’d let us crash for a night. Did a fair amount of camping too. Probably the best trip I’ve ever taken, even though we had the wrong bikes for the job. I was on a Suzuki Sv650 and he was on a Triumph Thuxton.
So much fun, and we had swore we were going to do Canada to Chile one day, but it never happened. We both got married and he had a kiddo so that was that. Glad I had the opportunity and the ability to just leave life behind for a month!
I always dreamed of doing a four corners trip by bike. Up to Maine, across to Seattle, down the California coast, back east to Florida and then home up to Connecticut. I don't see it happening anymore, but I do have a proper bike for it now - Indian Roadmaster.
