I've evolved my adventure riding alot since I did this trip. I use soft luggage, bring way more tools, proper tire repair and more stuff that I never need. One great suggestion I've read about is to always carry confortable running shoes in the event of an irrepairable breakdown. And a portable solar blanket. Always over prep the bike before hand. Pack strategically... but the lighter the better.
Plan for less fuel economy then normal.
And drag along a friend if you can. You get more photos that way.
