I am finally cracking the wallet open and buying some toys before my overnight trip to the 109 BBQ. Please see the list below and let me know what I am missing and that I should REALLY HAVE on a longer trip.

I know, I know, I really need the JR exhaust, intake, PCIII and nitrous with a [email protected]$$ map to go with it but I have no skills for the exhaust. :mad: :mad: :mad:

The most important thing you can do is to get in a bunch of riding, preferably long rides. That way you can get the most important thing you didn't mention ready for the long ride, YOUR A$$. :D :joke: :bigthumbsup:

A good nights sleep! Ride safe and enjoy. If you get most of the stuff you have listed you'll have more stuff than you NEED!

Have a blast!

I just bought those Tourmaster Slant Nylon bags size large for $90 shipped. They look great on the bike and have a decent amount of room. Check them out.

How much stuff are you taking - change of clothes and all? Might want to consider a Givi or similar bag from DL, too. The one I got - same as Hal posted on - holds 2+ days of cloths, tools, and misc. stuff. Worked great for me. :bigthumbsup:

Oh - and a couple of bungees or a bungee net to secure things over the bag (or rear seat if you don't have a bag).

BTW - I don't think a GPS is really *needed* for a trip... ;)

We are only staying one night. I am considering either a bag like the Givi, or the tourmaster saddlebags.
If I still have my Skidoo saddle bags I may try to make them work for now.

I already own the GPS so the mount was nothing really

OMG! One night! All you need is a tshirt and socks! Plus your tire kit. Put them in your tool bag and ride. I am staying for five nights and will get it all in a small backpack. Put your bulky clothes in ziplock backs and push out the air and then seal the bag. Keeps them small and dry.

Overnight stay? Small backpack or bag.

Multiple Days? Trailer that shyt...

I found that on long rides (500+ miles), having a backpack can increase your fatigue. I hate having a bag sitting on the passenger seat too. I like Lamonts trailer hook-up. Throw all that crap into the trailer and drive on. Sure it will add weight to the bike but at least you can carry a case of ice cold beer with you too for those occational pit stops.. :bigthumbsup:
