So I am taking my first long ride. I have had some 1-2 day 600mile trips but nothing like this. I am riding from Ca to texas then to New Orleans and possibly further. Just looking for any tips, routes, comfort mods, stories, places to see, Bars, whatever info you guys got on long distant trips that can help with the bike, the ride, the gear or having fun and staying out of jail would be nice but not mandatory.

Be VERY careful in and around New Orleans. I did what you are doing (except starting in the east coast). I don't know if its changed since Katrina, but several cops in that area told me to NOT ride through downtown at night.

I was also thinking of doing this (East to West), taking a ride home to cali. Best of luck man, subed (Id love to see what this thread picks up for info)

EDIT: When I was doing research I had decided on taking the 10 from Jacksonville, FL to Riverside, CA.

Dooooooooooooood. Outside of Calfolornia, it's called I-10 (eye-ten) or Interstate 10.

I will for sure be taking a mass of pictures and will be glad to share them as well as whatever knowledge I pick up on the road to help you out on your trip.

I once drove an RV from Gardena to Midland, TX. Not much to see once you get out of CA as I recall. Lots of desert. Make sure to take rain gear.
