This summer a friend (she is riding her own bike) and I (04 R1150RT) are planning a trip out to Mt. Rushmore from Michigan. I have been researching and reading about what I need for the long haul (New Nolan N100 Helmet, Motolights, seat lift, and deer whistle - What am I missing?). I have some 400 mile days planned (9 day total trip time planned). The most I have driven in the past are some 500 mile round trip weekend rides.
Packing? Gear? Riding Tips? Places to stop? Eat? Pre Ride Prep?
