Newbie rider, hoping to check off a slot in my buck list of motoring cross country. Plan is to learn and ride this year to cross the country in 2023. Starting from North Carolina to California and back. Routes are still in the works, I'll have about 2 weeks to do the trip. Still researching and reading about others experiences to help me plan mine. Question is what would you have done differently if you had to do your trip again? What to pack and not to pack, best times of the year to travel...etc.
