on the trip?

I won't be able to do it in one shot, I can usually get a max of two weeks PTO between projects at work... so it will be done in 2 or 3 sections depending on where we start. We're leaning towards starting at the CO/NM border and not doing the OK panhandle and TN dirt roads, etc. I can do that section on the Stelvio

I have a buddy from OR that will probably join me, so we're going to work out a way to have a haul rig on each end. Neither one of us wants to ride the bikes we've chosen out or back.

In other words, I'll prepare the bike for a section, ride it....and do maintenance when I get back.
I've got the bike ready to do a couple weeks in Baja, and the most I'd do on that trip is drop the oil and swap the air filter skin.
