Sounds like the making of a fine vacation . All the route suggestions given
are excellent , .
As you will be on the bikes for only the first week make it a
point to do Big Sur then and some of the mountain roads out and back
to Lake Tahoe , excellent curvy bike roads but misery in an RV.
Otherwise feel free to wander .
With the RV you obviously will not need to buy camping gear but will
want to locate campgrounds and RV parks ( not always the same)
Note that if you have an RV it is permitted
by WalMart that you park overnight on their parking lot ( at
least in many states they allow it) And WalMart is in nearly every
town of a certain size and should be easy to locate.
Een beetje zuinigheid hindert nooit , hè ?
As far as driving style in the USA compared to Europe
it is much slower . US city drivers seem to take ages to
start moving once a light changes to green.
Unless a signs says otherwise it is okay and legal
at traffic lights to turn right on a red AFTER having
come to a complete stop and making sure you
will not interfere with traffic having the green.
Stick to speed limits , fines double in construction
zones and jail time if you touch a worker( good idea)

Thanks a lot for these advices. They're very useful for me as I hope to stay longer in the US and therefor decided to try it here and win one of the GreenCards the Government grants. So it might be a great possibility to discover the country riding my bike. In the end I will be arrested or forced to pay fine just for doing something, which is absolutely common over here.

KOA campgrounds are another good spot to park your RV for a night, but not necessarily cheap. They often have a market, showers, and a park-like setting. There is a good one in Petaluma California only a mile from the Lagunitas Brewery.
