Ok here it is...I am 63 and ride a v star 1300.....have never done anything like this befor..
I am thinking of riding to Missouri from New York to visit a cousin...I have to admit I am
a little scare of doing it,with all the crazy's out there...
My intention is to ride all major highways,thinking this would be better than side roads..
But I have no idea what to do to prepare for it...I just had new tires put one the bike
and a new inspection as well...I have a windshield and 2 side bags for luggage..Also
have a rain suit...
My thought is taking a small tent and tarp as well as the bike cover...Not too many
cloths.I can always wash them at a camp ground...I think anyway..
Taking water and protien bars or cheese etc... I have no idea how far I can ride in one
day,but have no plan to try to make it over night...And I thought every time I stop I
would gas up wether I need to or not..Don't want to run out...
So there you have it..Tell me your thoughts on this and share any ideas with me....John
