I was a big fan of "Then Came Bronson". Pretty sure this is what got me fired up about one day doing exactly what you are doing. Regardless of the mess this country always seems to be in, the people and the country-side is the true great American adventure. The people that you meet along the way along with pictures of your surroundings is what I'll be mostly interested in.

Let us know how it goes!! My fiancÚ and I are planning ALMOST the same ride next year, except we are cutting through parts of Canada. We have it set for a 30 day trip, including a few days here and there for visiting family on the east coast. I will be riding my 2002 VTX1800c and pulling a tent trailer (both customized as Batman accessories!). She may or may not ride her Suzuki C50 Boulevard.
