I am planning my first long bike trip on an old bike. What does everyone do/check out to prepare their bike for multi day rides? I'm going to be taking a 73 Yamaha TX750 around 1200 miles in four days. Not unreasonable and I think enough room for some breakdown time. Most of it will be pretty isolated. I've had this bike for a year or so and I did a ride over 200 miles on it a couple weeks ago. Ill be riding two up and I will probably throw some saddle bags on there for camping gear, but most of the ride will be coastal roads so I am imagining an average of 50mph or so. We are going alone, but it's a busy vacation week here in Quebec so an isolated road side breakdown wouldn't be a complete stranding (I hope). Here's the map if anyone is interested. https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=207219115344510082154.0004dffc9523b85ab6d10&msa=0 The bike has the balancer chain tensioner and the deep sump, so the original design flaws shouldn't cause me any problems.
