The summer of 2010 trip turned out to be a car trip, not a moto trip, because I was worried that my sleep apnea would make a moto trip too risky. Plus, we can take Katie in the car. So we rented a Hertz Sebring (leather seats, Sirius radio, moonroof).
D-day … we get a late start because we can (4-wheels are more forgiving) and because we need to. Route: Lynnwood WA to Kalispell, MT with a stop in Coeur d’Alene ID for Hudson’s Burgers. Our motel room is next to a half-dozen Harleys; they hit the road earlier than we do Wednesday morning. (Google Map; the trip summary page)
