I'm leaving for my first long trip in a few days. I plan to cover about 2,000-2,500 miles round trip over 10-14 days on my 2005 KLR650 (New York to Tennessee), and I just want to see if you more experienced ADV'ers can offer any last-minute advice to a new fella. I did my doohickey, upgraded my brake pads/brake lines to stainless steel, just did a fresh oil change and everything is running like it should. I know myself well enough to know if I'm not in the right frame of mind to be riding. I keep my speed reasonable (which isn't too hard on a KLR, even though I'm an under-25 male), I've been practicing riding the bike fully loaded, and I've intentionally left my schedule open enough that I'm not pressured to put away miles to meet deadlines etc. I know I can't just make the butterflies in my stomach go away (and even if I could, would it be as fun?), but I'd appreciate any advice you can give on staying safe and having a good first outing. Thanks!
