My first trip

  • Greetings,

             I am currently planning a trip to go across the country from Salt Lake City to Providence RI. I'm doing this for the first time next year and it is something on my bucket list that I want to complete. I have to do it in one week and i'm looking for the fastest route to go. If anyone can help with this i would be thankful. Oh i have a 2007 honda VTX1300R. http://i.imgur.com/l68N0Rz.jpg

  • Hi James. Welcome!
    It's a nice bike you have there. There is no problem to get to RI from UT.  Google maps probably is the best way, unless you have a Garmin or something similar.
    I am from Utah, too.  I wouldn't trust any phone GPS on a long ride.  My Zumo 550 has served me wonderfully in around 10 years, and it will be with me for a long long time. :)
    Bring rain suite for sure.
    Have fun and ride safe!
