I'm posting this to see if there would be any interest in joining me and 3 other riders for an epic road trip down to Monterey, Ca for the MotoGP/AMA races at Laguna Seca. I've been riding down there the past 5yrs and it's an amazing ride. I've already done the planning for routes and lodging. If you can get the time off and want to do this you won't regret it. Also, we'll have chatterboxes to communicate so hopefully you have one or can borrow one. The pace will be mild but there are a few roads we'll hit that we'll be able to kick it up a few notches here's the plan..... Dates: July 23 - Aug 3 Here's the route going to: http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=B...q=salin&mra=dpe&mrsp=12&sz=8&via=6,12&t=m&z=8 Here are the stops we'll be making for overnight stays. Each leg on the way down/back will be about 300 miles which is perfect for this sort of trip; Monday 7/23- Seaside, Or @ Motel 6 www.motel6.com Tuesday 7/24- Brookings, Or @ Wild Rivers Motor Lodge 877-469-5361- ask for eric tell him you're traveling with me for the $79 deal Wednesday 7/25- Fort Bragg, Ca @ Americas Best Value Inn/Seabird Inn (google it) Thrusday 7/26-30 - Salinas, Ca @ Motel 6 Monday 7/30 - Clearlake, Ca @ Americas Best Value Inn Clearlake/Wine Country Tuesday 7/31 - Arcata, Ca @ Motel 6 Wednesday 8/1 - Klamath Falls, Or @ Motel 6 Thursday 8/2 - Gresham, Or @ Motel 6 total miles going down will be about 1200------ Back around 1400 here's the link for the route back http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=S...llin&mra=dpe&mrsp=18&sz=9&via=2,15,18&t=m&z=9 Everyone will have to make their own reservations for motels/hotels. If you want to pair up with someone to split costs that's up to you. You'll spend about $350 for gas for the entire trip down/back. Also the passes for Laguna Seca will run about $150+ for 3day and paddock pass. Lodging if split will be about $425pp. Figure on budgeting about $1500-2000 for the entire trip.
