I would not worry about the weather. Even if by chance it snows then wait a day and the roads will be clear. The sun is pretty warm and strong by that time since you're only 2 months from the start...

I had AltRider crash bars on my 2011 GS. I have Touratech crash bars on my 2014 GS. They are equally excellent although I like the TT uppers more that the uppers on the AltRider bars. Here's a...

I will look it up and do a bit of research. It sounds like an option. I have friends in Utah so Moab is a possibility but I'd prefer to save that for another time. My "real" trip will be...

Most expensive does not mean better. Better means better, and in this case MAM stuff is way better (and it doesn't need screws and tape to work). Duct tape could probably perform the same function,...

Spend the extra money on the MachineArtMoto stuff. Definitely worth the extra money. Personally I can't see shaving a few dollars on a $22,000 motorcycle. Provided there's any money left :-)
