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.

Im putin a set of eibachs on tuesday night, and then will have them all balanced again
I had the fronts ballanced 2 weeks ago, and didnt do the backs b/c they felt good :eyes: so i rotated and now i have to do the fronts, just going to have them do all 4, and the alignment --- if they can get it on the rack..
