where do you live and where are you planning to ride? we have been to a lot of different places, mostly west and southwest, but never been on the east coast as there is a lot more traffic to deal with, I think.
We are from S.Dak so everything is more populated than here..lol

Just be sure the recommended maintenance in the owners manual is current but factor in your anticipated trip mileage so your are not dealing with getting it done on the road.

Obviously tires and brakes should be included in your plan.

Long trips are the best thing I enjoy with my MCs.

Safe travels & enjoy!

Hi Darrell, search the archives here for the last couple of months and you'll find responses to very similar questions asked by me and at least one other guy. Lot's of good comments and advice. I think my post was something like "New-to-me..." if you want to search on that. My short list of things to change/look at would be: coolant, plugs, air filter, brakes, and age of tires. The plugs are super easy and cheap, but not so much the AF. If you're not mech inclined you might want to have that one done. There's lots more you could do by way of mods, too.

Good luck.
