If you wanna be conservative just take the items that Patrick suggested, but on a ride like that I would rely on MoTow or AAA RV Plus if there is a flat or a breakdown.

Have fun on the ride and if you ever get the itch to ride the US cross-country, Mexico, Alaska, etc., just join us over at ADVrider.com in the ride-report and trip-planning sections.

Have a great ride!
ya I was just seeing what's the common thing to take on rides. But I don't think the gsxr can handle those rides yall take. And I got AAA so that's a plus.

This and 2 changes of clothes, gun/ammo and personal items in a small tank bag and a small backpack. Just for a couple of days of riding around Nevada and N. California on my Duc.

That's true but I'm taking about if the bike would make it without a major problem.

When I rode down from Michigan last month I used a courier bag instead of a backpack. I adjusted the strap so it could rest on the seat behind me. I loaded it up and the weight wasn't an issue. +1 on the AAA plus card. Enjoy your trip.
