Try to keep this on topic man. I'm honestly trying to figure out a few things I might need to take.

I'm going to try to find a few extra springs and pushrods to take too....... dunno how that will turnout though

ok I'll be serious. If I were doing the whole tour I would take the following:


I would take some tools (sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers and other things like that)
Spark plugs and wires
Make sure your spare is good and has air in it
map
flashlight


I'm sure you thought of all of that but if I come up with more I'll list them

Definately get your tires balanced and an alignment before you go if you haven't had it done in a while.
