Try entering in Minnesota, buy a bike, ride to Brownsville, Texas. Sell the bike. (Why is everybody fixated on East to West?) That way you'll see our country with most of the bumpy stuff ironed out. You will appreciate jumping in the Gulf of Mexico once you've ridden across Texas.

Contrary to what some people here said, there are as many things to see in the East, Midwest, and South as there are in the West. I'd go from East to West personally, but I don't think it matters which direction you go. There is plenty to see in every state. It would take a lifetime to see it all. Take your time and enjoy it all. And yes, I've been to practically every state on a motorcycle myself.

Start in the west, take the Southern Route, then come back across using a northern route, sell bike on West coast, larger market, but a lot more smart a$$es over on the left side of the country as you can tell by the responses. Going both ways (no, not that way, directional) you really get to see the country really looks like.

Whichever way you go, don't forget to hit up the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina. You should definitely hit up Deal's Gap and ride The Dragon.



If you're looking for specific route or routes, check out Mad Maps at:



www.madmaps.com



They have routes mapped out for everything from day rides in California and the Smokies to cross country trips. The maps are are worth the very minimal investment.

Steal a bike. Ride across country and then just leave it somewhere near the airport and get on the plane quick!



I guess I should be working now but if I hear one more gov't official give a two hour speech I'm going to die!



Who knew ripping off old ladies in Mexico would be this complicated!

Why would anyone rip off an old lady?



You can't get anything for 'em.

Ofreen really has a grasp on the geography and history of our country.

He has most likely never been out of L.A. let alone east of Mississippi river.

I`ve travelled all over he`s ALL wet,.

I would think that up through the rocky mountains would better. Might also be a little cooler in the summer. Plus you could hit the great lakes area and Chicago.

Being from FL I love the mountains
