    I wonder if long trips were all about leaving everything behind.
    All I ever carry in my pocket is a chain lock, a spare spark plug and a headlight bulb.

    hey bunny the trip sounds exciting & u seem to have all the necessary things.. hey just a suggestion u can get a mod done which iam also considering after i saw octane & koolsun's bike, they have their seat lowered, cusioned & broadened for more comfort & they say its a breeze now on log rides.. my suggection wud be if u can then get a new seat & get it modified coz thats wht iam planin to do

    also did u considered getting ur tyre filed with puncture protection liquid thoiam not sure how good they are..

    all the best for the journey we'll be waiting for a nice long triplog with pics
