Planning first long trip, any tips?
Since getting my Versys less than a week ago and already putting over 500 miles on it around town, I think it is time for a road trip!
So far the plan is about 600 miles round trip. Mostly on 1 lane in each direction highway with very little traffic. From Las Vegas to Yuma AZ. I've done the trip many times in my truck, so I know the route well. I have done many cross country in one sitting trips, but in a pickup truck.
Think Ill do a couple of close day trips to get the hang of things on the long haul. Also put my side cases on and get some weight in them to see how handling is at speed. Get the music and GPS all figured out so there is no delays and fumbling around at the start.
What tips do you have for a first timer on a motorcycle doing a longer distance trip?
