Cali to WA ride questions

402 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Eyespy
Well I have decided to get a 02 R1 in Cali this summer [cheaper then WA, and I have business down there anyway]. Anyway I will be riding the bike back up to WA [1,251miles], I wanted to know if the R1 has any quarks with a trip like that? I probably will only stop for gas and food, so it will not get much cool down time. I could truck it up but since this will be my daily driver I want to give it a trial by fire.


*and yes I know the ride is going to suck [been there done that], Also what kind of mpg should I expect?

Palm Springs area of CA to the San Juan Islands of WA.
cool, how far is that from Port Angeles?
I have family up that way. Only thing that prevented me from moving up there a long time ago was all the damn rain you guys get:(

other than that, its the most beautiful area in the Country in my opinion
