    Heading for a 2000 mile track to Sturgis from the east coast totaling 5000 miles round trip.

    I have a 2011 FLHTK Ultra Limited
    Beside clothes, leathers, rain gear and spare helmet what should I bring for spare parts for quick fixes on the road should I have a problem.

    I just had tires, wheel bearings, brakes and routine service done.

    My list of what I have is as followed please add your thoughts....this is my first cross country trip...I have racked 14,000 miles since 2011 but never cross country. I am looking for imput from you iron butt guys and gals

    Parts I have

    Spare bulbs ( one for each essential light)
    Mushroom plug kit w/air compressor
    1qt oil
    Spare plugs
    Zip ties
    Short run of electrical wire
    Butt connectors
    Air shock pump
    Electrical tape
    Simple tool kit
    Air hawk seat cushion

    Should I pick-up blade fuses and a Main/Maxi fuse?
    What else?

    You know you're gonna end up needing whatever you don't have, and have whatever you don't need, right??? :D
    Your bike is still fairly new and should be in great shape for a 5K trip. Enjoy the ride, don't worry about breaking down, and stay out of jail in Sturgis. Bring lots of cash too. You're gonna need it :p
    Be safe and have fun.

    Thanks...I do have extended Warrentees on everything.
    This biggest thing is just a quick on the road repair. There are 4 of us heading out July 30-Aug 15. Haven't been since 2003 so we are excited.

    Looks like you have a pretty good starter kit going. Maybe a bottle of octane boost, on my trips I found some gas stations are lacking in higher octane gas.

    1. Definitely some spare fuses
    2. Small flashlight in case roadside repairs occur in the dark
    3. HOG card or equivalent in case you need a tow
    4. Spare sunglasses

    If 4 are traveling together then split the common needs between you.
