Hello- I'm sunshinekitty and this is my first ride report. This is me- And this is my bike, a 2014 Versys that I just bought this summer. I'm a college student at the University of South Florida (GO Bulls) on a Marine Corps ROTC Scholarship I've done rides with my dad @engineman but this is my first solo trip. My college visit for USF was done as part of a motorcycle tour of Florida https://advrider.com/f/threads/adv-lite-father-daughter-lap-of-florida.1374926/ I used an old set of Ortlieb saddlebags I got from my dad and riding gear from ebay. I installed a power outlet and soft bag racks on the Versys. Other than that I got prepared by planning my trip using a website called scenic routes. I kinda just randomly googled cool things to see on the east coast.

The day before I packed my saddle bags one side with all the camping and living essentials and the other fully stuffed with cute outfits for my trip. I strapped my tent, sleeping mat, and camera stand on the passenger seat and I was ready to go.
