Again thanks for the info. My plans have changed slightly, I'm gonna leave a little early, ride to Springfield (about 7 hrs) then spend the night and then ride the last 4 hrs the next day. Spend a couple of days in Memphis then ride home...single day ride...I'm guessing my ars is going to hurt by the time I get home.
I am looking for a windshield now. I have installed new plugs and a oil change along with diff fluid change. I also should have a K&N installed within the week. I have a good leather coat, good gloves, nice helmet, riding boots. By the time I leave I will have a phone charger installed, and set of rain gear. I doubt that a set of saddle bags will happen, but I have a pack that I can put on the rear seat for my stuff. I may try putting my i-pod and skull kandy in my helmet. I also will start doing longer rides before I go.
Any thing else you would recommend for this adventure? I've seen some "cruise control" that slips onto the handle grips and just holds it in place. Any thoughts on them?
