If you ride north from LA go up the coast hiway through Oregon--its beautiful, kinda primitive the futher north you go. (Crater Lake) Then go to Everett WA, over the Cascades and do that entire region--again fantastic riding, sparse traffic, much great scenery.
Go east to the Bitterroot Mts and head south, do the mountains of Idaho, continue down the Rockies to page, UT, then on to the Grand Canyon.
After all that it may be a challenge just to do all that, and we haven't even scratched the surface of touring in the US. I've been working at it for most of my adult life (and I'm old) and I have not really seen all of the above.
The more I think of it, you could spend your entire vacation in the state of CA and you won't have time to see it all!
Maybe you'll have to take several tours of different areas of the US!
I spent two weeks in Perth area (2005)--wonderful place!
