Scheduling a 8-10,000 mile ride in the spring. Already planning on changing fluids (oil, brakes, coolant, rear end), new tires (going to try out the ME-888's), air filter and clean some switches. The bike is a 2008 level 4 with 40K miles. Are there other items that I should plan on checking to "ensure" a trouble-free trip?
Sounds like you got it covered for the bike. Just be sure that you have a couple of credit cards in the billfold and you might let them know that your traveling. Don't ask me how I know.
