first holiday to the USA
Thanks everybody for the tips and route suggestions. I think Doug's described route is a good starting point and Google maps gave me a nice preview of what to expect. I don't think we'll have any trouble getting out of SF , I'm used to dense traffic and all sorts of road maniacs that presented themselves in the various European cities I've been to (maybe I'm not any better!) I feel obliged to go through Lodi and say thanks to Doug and have a chat and a drink with a local, which is always nice. It will be our first to the USA and if we like it probably not the last although the Australian outback is next on our list. First thing first though... can't wait to ride through California!
