Re: What to pack for a trip??
Are you going North, South or West? My list is short. Cash, credit cards, insurance cards, tow service card, Anonymous Book, spare key and a copy of all of the above hidden under the trunk liner. For 4 days you need 4 changes (that gives you 1 spare in case you get stuck or wet) of sox, underwear and shirts, something to sit around in and comfortable shoes while the boots cool off. Keep it simple, and light. I wear waterproof clothing with removable liners so I don't need rain gear. If it's not too cold, wet gloves will dry while you ride. If it's cold, a spare pair is nice and I found rain gloves and winter gloves are too bulky so I have glove liners for cold weather and a spare pair for wet days. If it is real cold, pack a sweat shirt. My Motoport suit will handle weather down to about 40 with just a T shirt. Learn about Microfiber clothing (Columbia fishing shirts and zip off pants and Under Armor shirts). They pack small and dry fast. Take a digital camera. Take pictures so you can remind your wife of the fun she forgot you had! Tools are great as is a tire repair kit and air compressor, but, if you don't know what your doing, they won't help. Keep smiling, everyone is jealous of people having fun!
