  1. The old travel adage says take half the clothes and twice the money. I’ve never had twice the money! You know a whole bunch of us from the Vulcan Forums will be following along.

    1. I think I may be doing it wrong than ’cause I got half the cloths and half the money! Thanks for following along on this long journey!

  2. Seems like an extensive list. I’d recommend traveling as light as possible. Take the essential safety, maintenance, legal docs, clothing and sleep gear; then pickup and drop off the other comfort items throughout the trip, as you need them.

    I envy the idea of taking off for a long-term trip, all the best to you. Look forward to hearing how you go.

    1. I love the idea of traveling light! I will not have the opportunity to pick up and drop off too many items. At best maybe two or three stops on the entire trip. Do you have any ideas as to what I could cut from my list? Thanks for following and Ride Safe!

      1. Hard to say what you could cull, up to personal preference. I’d drop the quart of oil though. Should be able to pick this up almost anywhere if needed.

        What you should add though are ear plugs. Wind noise on long trips can be a real fatigue issue, ear plugs will go a long way to making the trip less wearing.
