I am starting to plan next year's 50cc. I am thinking about running it from Delaware to san Francisco with a bbg on the first day. Any thoughts on my insanity.

My 50CC from NY to SF I did a BBG the first day. Wasn't bad at all and that was on a bike with stock fuel capacity, no aux tank.

You can make good time west of Chicago, especially at night.

I've been to Chicago multiple times and I found that once I get west of Pennsylvania I can make really good time therefore I don't think it would be a problem getting to Colorado in the first day.

By "planning" you mean you're waking up on a set day, getting on your bike and going right?
Marc,

My planning is around the date as I have to ride the 500 miles to JAX also I am working on a good start time to avoid as much traffic on my route as possible.

I am also looking at state DOT websites along my route for large scale construction. I like to mark those areas in my GPS with a proximity alert so I know.

I also am working on some other ride timings to see how long the ride will take.

I was thinking about running it in the spring but now realize that I will need a least a ss2000. So now I a thinking about a ss3000 to Joel co and back

I'm planning a west coast to east coast 50cc. How many miles do you guys suggest each day? I'm thinking the most miles I can on day 1, maybe 1300 to 1400.

What route are you going to ride?

San Diego to Jacksonville is about 2,350 miles and a nice place in the middle is Junction, TX.

You might think twice about Houston being a good stopping point.

It's really one of those places you really just want to pass through as quickly as possible.

West Texas is VERY dark at night... :cool:
