Astrid (39) and I (Erik 43) are new on this forum, we are from the Netherlands. We also said hello on the new member topic. Sorry for my English but i do my best. On the new member topic we asked for tips because we come over to your country. What is our plan?. We will ship our motorbikes (F650GS 2002 / R1150GSA 2003) to L.A. and we will arrive whit the plane on march 26th. From there we have 6 months for visiting the U.S. Canada and Alaska. We have nothing planned ahead, only a visit to friends in Boston and family in Canada, we will end up back in LA. We have about 6 weeks to go from LA to Boston, from there we are going in to Canada, when ist possible we also want to ride trough eastern Canada to Alaska, experience the Arctic Circle and then trough the west coast back towards LA. It?s that simple!!!
That is a short explanation of our trip. We want to travel low budget because it is expensive enough and we are certainly not rich. So we are looking for useful tips and cheap nights over or perhaps there are people who have a spare room for us? We would like to see local things and want to experience the real American life. We are very excited!!!
Our route so far:
L.A. > Sequoia N.F. > Death Vally > Las Vegas >Zion N.P. > the wave (marble Canyon) > Bryce Canyon > Arches N.P. > Bonneville Salt Flats > Salt Lake City > Yellowstone N.P. > Devils Tower (Wyoming) > Mount Rushmore N.P. > Milwaukee (H.D.
