Hey all, I live in central Texas and my sister just moved to Valaparaiso, IN to go to grad school. I'm thinking of making a trip to see her, possibly going through and making a stop in Iowa first to catch up with a friend from my freshman year here in college ;) It's 1200 miles to my sister's in Indiana but if I go through Iowa, it's roughly 14 hours to my destination in Iowa and another 7 to my sister. Questions:
What should I do to prepare the bike for this kind of 2400 mile ride?
What should I do to prepare myself for this kind of ride?!
It's kind of a last minute decision, will be going before winter, but about where would I be feeling the real climate change? How much time should I set aside for this journey? School starts next Wednesday, the 25th, should I leave work right now and just go hop on my beauty and ride?
Thanks for any advice!
