From the looks of it you decided that instead of riding to your destination....... You will drive there and then assemble the bike you have in the back of your truck?

No, but I think of how much stuff do I take for a three month on the road.

about 7 long sleeve T-shirts
same undies, like byciclist material
same of socks
One pair of hanging out shorts
tennis shoes
Two jackets, one with inliners for all occasions
Rain gear and gloves for all occasions
One pair of jeans
Vitamins
Suntan stick
Ear plugs
Toiletry
flat repair kit and compressor
one of them batt packs
bungie chords
cooling vest
Laptop, phone and tech support wire gadgets.
My passport in case I decide to go to Canada again...in spite of my decision last year that I would never go again.
This year I am not taking any tools (hope that's not a mistake)...maybe Goldwing reliability influenced that decision.
And I carry lots of research on a folder: roads, places, people, options, shops, caveats of 'not-to-ride-at'.
A little 1.5 inch knife to defend myself against unforeseeable evils

I ride on ridding pants/jacket/boots/helmet/ear plugs/gloves

...I probably forgot something. Now that I got a trunk again, I ll probably either buy or carry more stuff. I am a pack-rat type.

"hum, fear not evil I shall"
"All things with Christ's strength I do"

I often pondered this question when unpacking after a trip and came up with this rule of thumb.
When sorting out gear for the trip lay out all the clothes, shoes and stuff.
Beside that place the cash you are taking.
Then discard 1/2 the clothing and stuff and double the cash.
Be about right.
