Packing for the long trip...Colo...Banff

Yep taking the wife on her first LONG road trip. Heading east through Nevada, Utah and Colorado. Riding with my brother R1150RT and meeting up with a friend from Arkansas on his new Kaw 1100 in Durango, Colorado. Then its north to Banff.....Yellowstone, Glacier on the itinerary.
Two weeks on the road....hope all goes well.
Leaving Friday.

Talking Re: Packing for the long trip...Colo...Banff

Thanks guys.
I'll have a couple other bike friends along for most of the ride.

It should be sweet.

I'll let you know how it went when I return.

If at all possible, don't miss the Ice Field Highway - the ~200 mile road from Lake Louise (near Banff) to Jasper. There and back easily done in one day, and one of the best motorcycle roads in the world, IMHO (and in the opinion of many others). PM me if you wish and I'll send you some pics from the trip. Well worth missing almost any other road on your route.
