John,
Thanks for coming all the way up to Cave Creek from Apache Junction. It was a pleasure getting to meet you and swap some stories.

What mods on the bikes?

Did you guys beef up suspension to handle the loads?

I've read loads of RRs where the guys changed suspension on big bikes that were carrying as much stuff as you guys had.

Any mods or...

Currently not using synthetic

I use synthetic oil in my truck, but haven't switched to it on the bike.

How many miles between changes?

I change my oil about every 3000 miles now. How much longer using synthetic?

Third World Solution

I'm guessing that this is the solution outside developed nations. I'm planning on heading south next year (assuming I don't wuss out from this year's trip).

Awesome ideas

Thanks.

I may have figured it out (say by the third oil change), but nice to just ask people who have already been there and done that.

Decided

Thanks for all the input.

I went out and tried on several motorcycle suits from klim, spidi, rev'it and olympia. Also tried on a rain jacket over my mesh jacket -- looked like a sail waiting to...

Everything's hot at 116F! Last summer I came down from the mountains into Phoenix in late afternoon and it was ONLY 112F and I was dying inside my full mesh jacket. I should have poured water on...

Definitely torn between the two. Maybe it's just the desire to buy some cool ass gear.

Unfortunately being in AZ I doubt I'll get a chance to test the rain gear I have before my trip starts.

I'm planning my first long distance trip where I'll be riding through the western US then crossing the northern states (with jaunts into Canada) over to Vermont and then back to Phoenix.

I'm sure...

Lava Grey

I just got the lava grey model. Really nice helmet. It gets hot inside the helmet here in Phoenix. I have to pop the face shield at intersections or it gets difficult to breathe.

With that...

WR250R looks promising...

Nice. I looked at the WR250R and with a 32 inch inseam I'm probably too short for it. I'll need platform shoes to touch the ground.:rofl

I'm a thinkin' fuel injection is the way to go

Thanks for the input. I think fuel injection will work for me. I'll also check out the WR250R. I didn't know it was fuel injected.

Newb Question: Carburetor or Fuel Injection?

I'm looking at the Yamaha XT250 and was wondering if the fuel injection on the 2013 would be worth the extra coin over a 2012 carburetor model.

I'm leaning toward the cheaper model, but I intend...
