    Radar, welcome to RFTW. Where do you live? What route are you planning on going on? Lobo

    From Troy Montana, but currently in Rockport Texas helping folks affected by hurricane Harvey.  I’m not sure if I’ll get home before May, might just head to Calf. from here….

    I planning on the central route….

    Sorry for the duplicate post…

    Thanks again for some great ideas and inputs… I might have my father in-law drive my truck “Misfit” and follow along for a safety net. I only have a bike trailer big enough for two bikes that I usually haul behind my fifth-wheel. As you can see (see Avatar) the truck can pretty much haul any size of trailer, if anybody knows of someone willing to donate the use of a larger trailer for the run we’d be happy to drag it along. The trucks insured for $3 mil so the trailer would be well covered.
    Do you think I should create a new post asking for the use of a larger bike trailer? Maybe I can find a company  willing to donate the use of a trailer… any thoughts???
    Misfit, too big to be called a pickup and too small to be called a semi…. lol…

    Thanks for the input everybody… I’m not looking for valet service, just trying to plan a head. I don’t need anybody to carry my underwear, just thought it may be easier to carry a spare tire or two versus a broke bike and it’s driver and passenger…

    My passenger does have a medical issue, but USUALLY can ride a 500 mile day trip and was trying to get a feel of the options available if she wasn’t able to make a long day. I would rather know now than during the ride.

    I can carry my own weight and don’t need any hand holding, but being my first trip I want to ensure my passenger and I don’t inconvenience anybody unnecessarily…

    Is there any events that require dress clothes of any kind? Or is just levis and general riding clothes sufficient?

    Thanks again for all the input….

    I just might end up getting that CVO I am looking at. I just thought it would be an accomplishment to take the Sporty…

    Merry Christmas…
