Ride Reports and Touring / Road Trip Advice
« on: May 11, 2021, 12:55:09 pm »
Greetings fellow TTSE lovers.  Next year I plan to take a roughly 2,500 mile trip following the famed Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles.  My partner will be on a Triumph Speedmaster, so I will have to carry most of the kit.

Iíve never taken a multi day trip on a motorcycle, so all advice is welcome.  Especially as it pertains to optimal clothes, tools, gear, rout planning, en route maintenance/repair protocols, etc.  Also, if anyone has Ďmust seeí recommendations near Route 66 Iíd love to hear about it.

Replies are welcome here, but if itís lengthy and/or detailed our fellow enthusiasts might appreciate it if you emailed me directly at ##redacted##.

Thanks in advance.

Rode from Nashville to Huntsville yesterday. Met cousins at Gibsonís BBQ for lunch and then back to Nashville.  234 miles in light traffic and glorious weather.  No luggage and comfy TES setting.  Life is good.

Iím getting back into riding after 20 plus years away from it (It was a wife thing).  After researching, I fell in love with the trophy based on design and description.  I test drove one yesterday and was disappointed.  Negatives include 1) heavy 2) stiff clutch 3) most importantly high center of gravity.  Can you guys chime in?
