Hello fellow inmates, I did post few times for the trip I'm doing this summer to celebrate 50 years of good life. I'm in the final preparation stage. Here are the packing list i came up today and stuff on the floor ready to be packed. My goal is to travel light. I also decided not to invest in new riding gears as the gear i have was quite comfortable on previous trips. For riding gears, I have my own 4 layer system that can be mismatch as the weather dictate. Leather street jacket, adventure Jacket with 2 layers, riding pants riding enduro boots. set of winter and summer glove. Rain suit. I did previously ride in freezing temperature with my adventure jacket over my leather jacket, was perfect. THe benefit are also huge impact protection. from both jacket. In warm weather, i always wear my street jacket for protection. and it's signed by the Doctor and Colin Edward, then it make me faster....Other important part of my packing list is the camera to take pictures and also be able to go for a day hike in various of our beautiful national parks. Food is not a concern as I know I can go a long time with only high energy foods as dry fruits and anyway, in North America, civilization is never far away. As I will be traveling alone, safety is and will be my top priority. (until I jump on the bike...:) That why I invested in a Spot 2 and subscribed to their insurance's. All my vital and safety information will be clearly labeled on my bike and on me. Some of my best friends will follow me and trigger alarm if I do not give sign of life once a while.
