This sounds like an awesome way to spend a month. I’ve done several long distance runs on a bmw s1000rr, most notably Manhattan NY to Miami in a day, but have done coast to coast. One thing I will recommend is stretch stretch stretch, and if you are feeling the least bit fatigued, stop. Meals are important, so plan your stops around your eating habits. I have irritable bowel, and had the great idea of eating my body weights worth of brisquit in Waco Tx, I didn’t make it 50 miles down the road before having to seek indoor plumbing, so that day was a waste. Not sure what your storage situation is, but I learned that a small thing of wet wipes and toilet paper/Kleenex are a must. I haven’t looked at your itenerary, but you may want to seek a shop mid ride for new tires, and I’m sure you will be stopping for an oil change at minimum. Are you going to ride back home or ditch the bike in California? My .02 is leave it or sell it out there. I tried to ride home from California in 2014 and made it all the way to Nevada before throwing in the towel. You’re going to have the time of your life, there’s going to be good days and bad days, cherish all of them, you’re doing something very few will attempt.
