Don't know your physical condition but I would want to be in the best shape possible. That's a lot of days in the sun. Fresh oil and make sure the rear is in good shape. Bikes ready.
wvrider1, I do have 3 out of the 4. Don't have a Halo but I do have a different brand inflator.What relay do you guys always have. Is it the starter relay? What about a micro jump - battery charger? Thanks, BruceFirst aid kit, Halo jump box/tire inflator. Tire plug kit.
I would say I am in good shape for 65. Not buff or built but also not overweight. 6 foot 2 inches 205 pounds. Been riding motorcycles since I was 9 years old. You are right about the sun....... Don't want to burn the little bald spot. LOLDon't know your physical condition but I would want to be in the best shape possible. That's a lot of days in the sun.

@burbansk ...we've done twice...first time went from Houghton lake, MI up to UP and took route 2 across to Washington, then down along ocean till Northern CA. Turned east and hit all those you listed. (3 weeks, 6700 miles)My wife has never been " Out West ". So next year ( End of June 2023 ) We will be going from Northern Lower Michigan through the lower U.P. to Menominee MI. Then to the Menominee Indian Reservation for a brief stop as we continue west to Mount Rushmore. Next will be Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, Pikes Peak, back up to Deadwood and then return home. We are looking at 5,000 miles on the XCT. This will be a long and expensive trip but you only live once and we are not getting any younger. Estimating being gone 3 weeks or more. Has anyone done this or have suggestions? My 2013 XCT has less than 11,000 miles with new tires, brakes etc. Should be no worries for my Victory.
@topcat ,you sir, and your wife, are my heroes and have all my respect. That is awesome. May I be as fortunate...My wife and I rode from NY STATE to Utah and back this year. We covered 6,320 miles total. She has a 2013 Boardwalk and I have a 2011 Kingpin. I am 77 years old, if we can make a trip like that you can too. Just have fun.
Wear helmets. Saves on sunburn and your brain underneath in the event of a crash. Buy a SENA helmet communicator so that you and the missus can chat now and again and listen to music together.You are right about the sun....... Don't want to burn the little bald spot. LOL
