Default I once rode...

from Glendale California, to Inglewood, Ca on an un-registered Valmoble folding motor scooter...only on sidewalks, vacant lots and through parking lots...when my Coupe De Ville refused to start one morning.

The ride home was mostly uneventful, until i stopped at Crenshaw & Adams, where i was forced to purchase a double-dove of crack from some homies who liked my scooter. It was that or get beat down.

Turned out to be soap. Crooks.

You just can't trust anybody these days! - What's next? Politicians keeping their Promises? That'll be a TRUE sign we're living in the End Times.............

clochner, the best place to ask this question is at Adventure Rider Motorcycle Forum . Those guys ride EVERYWHERE and will know where such a ride can be done, if it can be done at all.

BTW, I hope you post a trip report when you are done! I'd love to take such a ride!

Yeah, what she said! ADVers have done this before. You'll like the inmates there, too.

There's quite a few people who have run the dirt route down the rockies you were linked to, but even to operate on dirt roads you're going to need a dual sport in most states. I don't know of an OHV system that runs from Canada to Mexico. You also have the option of running through Oregon, Washington and California. I know the Oregon Back Country Discovery Route pretty well, but can't say as much about the developed dual sport routes through Washington and California.
Oh for a motorcycle board where politics doesn't become the overwhelming subject matter on threads.

Adventure Rider Motorcycle Forum kicks the political stuff into a special dungeon called Jo Momma.

Actually, political stuff has dropped off dramatically on this forum and for the most part it is done sarcastically now. See above post by Kenneth_Moore and myself.
