also dont forget to stretch your legs out before putting them down at a gas station etc after a long trip to let blood circulate or else you might find yourself dropping your bike

Basically if you seen easy rider that's what I'm going for just pack enough clothes so that I can wash them every night or so and just hit the hwy with really no place in particular in mind.

Forget the daily laundry thing. That will kill your buzz...daily. Just get soft bags and a tank bag and pack lots of underwear, t shirts, and socks. 2-3 pair jeans. Wet weather gear. GPS is a must. Wire the bike for accessory power.

If you want to forget it all and have a real adventure, go to Mexico. It'll be much warmer there this time of year. Plus, Cali is like 36 hours away. Mountains of Mexico just 8. And you can hit the 32 sisters on the way down.

Houston to Mazatlan, 818 miles as the crow flies. Houston to LA 1400. And in Mexico you'll have cool mountain riding most of the way.

Check TWTEX for more touring info.

To answer you're question...I've ridden 2500 miles in 6 days on a 400cc Bandit with just two changes of clothes and $140 in my pocket. College "vacation" coming from St. Louis to Austin to see brother and cousins and Texas. I've done a lot of 1200 mile weekend explorinng trips in Texas.

Just remember, it's the flat boring stuff that makes a drive seem long. 300 miles of exploring goes by quickly.

Maskale thanks for the info on tire repair. We have a very large ranch in Mexico but i heard with the economy the way it is Mexico is deffinately not the place to be with the high rate of crime. Plus seems like an enduro style bike would be more suitable for a trip like that. Im still trying to find out for sure how i want to route my trip, and the 23rd of of this month is the day my dad passed away im kinda hopping this will help out after i take this trip
