I'll admit, part of planning this frightens me a bit, but then the rational side takes over and I think...Ive got the perfect bike, with cruise control, should be good weather, whats not to love? Well, other than 1000 miles in 24 hours :P I will probably do this 2 up as wifey has expressed an interest as well.

THIS is the route Im thinking. Im not sure yet but I may go the route down to Tuscon and over to stay on a major freeway.

Anyhow. Im planning at this point, reading as many ride reports as I can to glean knowledge, and mentally start making a checklist of everything I'll need to take. I understand my rest stops are as - if not more - important to plan than the route, so Im being mindful of that as well.

So. Would anyone like to do this with me? Timing and route are flexible. I'll be making a seperate post in another forum for tips, but just seeing if there might be interest.
