New Member from Tennessee

Hey guys. I'm a new member from Tennessee who just recently purchased a 08 Versys. This is my first bike and so far it's more that i have ever needed or wanted. I am currently planning a trip from Tennessee to California in May. Any pointers about what gear to buy and what to see out there? My wish list so far is:
Givi sidecases
Windshield
Barkbuster hand gaurds
Tank bag

any pointers?

Thanks in advance

For now I don't think our plans are to go that low in California but we will see once we get on the road. Thanks for the heads up on the other thread, it's going to help out a lot.

Welcome. We get up into TN a good bit when the weather is good.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!
