Our Big Trip West Next Year

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.

I wouldn't think you'd need a battery jump start but your do have a ton of room on a XC so I wouldn't say it's bad to have. I have several but none on the bikes.

With the bike only having 11k on it when you get home it still won't be broken in. Lol! That happens about 20K.

I would watch your tires closely. Making sure they have the live to do 5k. If they don't I'd get fresh ones before leaving.
