Planned a trip to Chicago coming up in about 22 days from New jersey. Going for my saddlesore 1000 certification also from Iron Butt. Now I don't have a touring bike so I know this trip is going to be Interesting to say the least. My question is, how should I prepare myself and the bike for this trip? I've already purchased a duel pouch tank bag for the bike. No saddle bags. Mailing clothes to destination. Bought a full face helmet since the Train has no shield. The total round trip mileage should be around 2000 miles within a 1 week period. Thanks.
