Don't waste time or time will waste you

I’m planning a 3,000mi/10 day motorcycle trip through CA/AZ/NM/CO/UT/NV September 4-13.

My route will be either this (#1) or this (#2). #1 will be cooler and quicker, but #2 is more scenic. Plus, I’ve been told I’ll be able to find gas every 100 miles along #1 (with a little advance planning), and I don’t know if that’s the case with #2. Green markers are overnight stops. C through H is pretty much set, as that’s where I have friends and family, but through UT, NV and CA, let me know if you have any suggestions for alternate routes.

My schedule:

Friday, 9/4:
San Francisco, CA to Los Angeles, CA - 9hrs

Saturday, 9/5:
Los Angeles, CA to Phoenix, AZ - 7hrs
See family

Sunday, 9/6:
Phoenix, AZ to Tucson, AZ - 2hrs
See family

Monday, 9/7:
Tucson, AZ to Socorro, NM - 8hrs
See friends

Tuesday, 9/8:
Socorro, NM to Albuquerque, NM - 1hr
See friends

Wednesday, 9/9:
Albuquerque, NM to Denver, CO - 8hrs
See friends

Thursday, 9/10:
Denver, CO to Broomfield, CO - 30min
See family

Friday, 9/11:
Denver, CO to Utah - 8-9.5hrs

Saturday, 9/12:
Utah to Nevada - 8-9.5hrs

Sunday, 9/13:
Nevada to San Franciso, CA - 5-7hrs

I won’t bring my laptop with me, but I’ll be posting pictures and stories from my phone to here, as well as to twitter, so keep an eye out. ;)
