My husband & I are going to be travelling (2-up) on our Harley Roadking starting and ending in LA ('cos thats where we store the bike with friends) and want to take in Phoenix, Tucson and San Diego. Can you suggest some good routes/rides to make the trip more enjoyable? We like to avoid Interstates, but don't want pure dirt tracks either! We have a month to spend doing this but don't want to go as far as NM due to the time of year/weather. We dont mind which way round we do the trip, but don't want to re-cross our tracks if at all possible.
Can you also suggest somewhere to spend Thanksgiving as we don't know anyone at all and would like to be somewhere friendly to strangers!
