    Hard to say as we will be doing this before the real summer heat but the weather is generally on the warm side. Yellowstone is the hard one because it's at altitude and has it's own weather systems but you can expect the following:

    California and Idaho will be around 30C
    Death Valley and Las Vegas area up to 40C
    Colorado and Moab 30C
    Yellowstone: Impossible to say and the range is 10C to 25C

    We probably won't see any rain except in the Yellowstone area where there is a good chance we may get a few showers.

    The only other dodgy place can be the California coast which can stay very cool and misty due to what's called the June gloom but generally it's really nice.

    The temps can get fairly hot but we try to avoid the really stinking temps in places like Death Valley by going through there very early but saying that, I've ridden in around 50c and although it's uncomfortable I have picked up many good tips on hot weather riding and it's no real problem.

    Most of the time it will be almost perfect riding weather.

    For those who have never ridden out in the US, you may be surprised by some of the mileages but these are easily doable out there. Most roads, even the brilliant twisties, are more or less traffic free so progress is generally serene and easy.

    That’s a spectacular itinerary 👍 I wish I hadn’t spent all my money on a new R1250GS or I’d have been seriously tempted
