I carry spare tubes in my tank bag or in my camel back or taped to the front fender or zip tied flat to the rear rack, under your bag of clothes. You could probably stuff one in you clothes bag.

I've got a front and rear in there actually as it is.

I do in this idea too, which how I think I'm going to go (plus the saddlebags). Might get a cheap cordura stuff sack to go over the sea to summit bag though, not sure how well or long it'll hold up on the rack exposed. Paired with a wolfman enduro duffel in the photo.

Sounds like exciting times ahead. Look forward to reading all about it.
If you need a room in Utah Valley (45 min south of SLC) let me know.

Fender bag recommendation

Subscribed! Good luck. I recommend a Wolfman fender bag up front for the tubes.

If you are in the SoCal desert near the border and need a place to crash....

So did you sell off everything without intent of coming back, or is this just in search of where you feel you should be, then you'll be back to grab your stuff?

There was interest in a guy purchasing, well wanting to trade his gs for my strom when I had placed it for sale on here. He met up with me over in olney to try the bike out and what not. After my ride on the gs, I had to pass on the trade deal. However, kept in contact with him as he had just graduated college with his law degree and decided to do a similar trip. He sold everything he owned, had clothes for his trip, banked the rest of the money and set off on his bike ending somewhere in cali. To that I say, wow!

When I was your age I went thru similar. I got tired of the hussle around baltimore, yet still had one last thing to do before graduating. An internship. So I moved out to idaho for a year living in a tent and working with wolves. Upon the end of the internship, I had to come back. I saved up some money, packed everything I had and returned to idaho. Living in a tent for a week til I got job interviews, then lived in a hotel for a few more days til I was able to rent a room. It was fantastic while it lasted and I wish I could've had the balls to stay out there longer, if not permanently. I did that trip back out 3 times..never on a bike...how I wish I had that opportunity!!! And every time returning for some bogus reason. However, had I never moved back, I would've never met my now wife So I'm glad I came back..but every time I step out my front door, I look to the west wanting to get out of B-more yet again and more permanently. So you're not alone in your thoughts, nor wanting to journey for something else.
Remember however, the grass is always greener on the other side and when things get rough, running away doesn't always make the things that haunt you go away. Be true to yourself, and I'm sure this trip will provide insight. Lastly, as several said.. do it now! There is no telling what the future holds, and you don't want to go on living wondering..what if? and with regrets. Trust me..things surprisingly sneak up on you (as you know) and then you suddenly can't or do not have the time. Good luck on your trip and I'm most definitely subscribed.

Personally, I've had great luck with those bags with nothing over them. Granted, haven't spent more than 3 weeks at a time out with them but they are certainly heartier than they seem.




Code, you gave up Idaho for Baltimore?

Sounds like a great adventure. I'm subscribed

I think your father and grandfather had the right idea. I tell my kids that they can make lots of money and have a nice house, car and material possesions but when their time on the earth is up the only thing they can take with them is their experiences. So I encourage them to travel try doing different things.
Have a safe trip.
