    Leaving Ohio Saturday morning. Picking up Rt 66 in Chicago and running it to the end in Santa Monica, Hanging a right to go north on the PCH, across the Golden Gate, Loneliest Highway across Nevada, Yellowstone, Tetons, Badlands and home. Figure about 7600 miles. Second half subject to change because of all the fires in California.

    Safe travels, hope you are able to make the northern route return. Winter comes early out there at elevation. Please share pics for those of us who will live vicariously through you for the next several weeks! Ride on rider.

    @JeffD
    I doubt your timing will put you here that early, but we're expecting snow in the Black Hills Monday night into Tuesday, high Tuesday in the 40s, then warming through the week. Have fun, be careful...

    Although some areas and regions are almost unpredictable. Talking about it, I would also consider of preparing nice motorcycle boots before such trips, for any weather conditions. I've seen a lot of helpful resources, but as mentioned here there is no better boots for bad weather than RST Tractech Evo 1516 motorcycle boots. What do you think about it?
