Motorcycle trip planning - Day 1

Posted March 11th, 2009 at 01:28 PM by sometimesido

It just popped in my head that I wanted to travel from Atlanta to L.A. on my motorcycle.
Planes are nice, but been there done that. Bring on the pain and pleasure of road trip not on a car, but on a motorcycle. I'm going to try to keep the cost down as much as possible.

First thing's first, the fuel cost.
According to google maps, it is 2,239 miles from my house to L.A.
Average miles per gallon I get is 60 and my bike has 4 gallon tank plus 1 gallon reserve tank.
Without using my reserve, that would be roughly 240 miles per fill up.
My bike uses 87 Octane(recommended) and I'm going to just say $2 per gallon.
So, that's $8 per fill up. Round it off to 2,400 miles(food, gas, attraction detours), that is 10 fill ups.
That equals to $80 one way. $160 round trip.
This I cannot change much.
