I'm thinking of tire choices for the trip. I won't need anything particularly aggressive, but I would like strong and durable. I've Avon Distanzias in the past, but the last set on my Weestrom were a disappointment.
I am also thinking of the Eagle Mike fork brace, so I can drop the front fender down (windy up there), and the Gold Seal cartridge emulators. Are these worth the biscuit for a ride of this nature?
You might want to check out the Ricor Intiminators, they are easy to install and on sale too.
