Factual errors 

Wyatt and Billy are going to the Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans. This indicates that they are traveling in either late January or early February, given that Mardi Gras usually takes place in mid February. Despite this, and despite the number of states they drive through, the men never drive through an area of cold weather. Many of the characters they meet are wearing summer style clothes, and the weather is most obvious in New Mexico, where the winters can be extremely hard with lots of snow.

Revealing mistakes 

The scene just before Wyatt throws away his watch is a mirror image. The bike appears to be leaning to the right on the kickstand (instead of the left) and his jacket has stripes down the right side but in the rest of the movie they're down the left side.

Flipped shot: in the first shot of Wyatt with the motorcycle, the "Captain America" jacket is seen in reverse - the vertical strip and badge is on the left side of the chest and in the last second when he departs, the flag is reversed too.
