Planning a ride from Pa to Ga in July. Will be the first long ride ever. Going solo the wife says it is to far to ride. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Do's and dont's from others past experience! Going to make a stop in NC on the way down. On the way back it will be nonstop.

PM Radio Cowboy (my brother)..........he came down to meet me in Athens, GA from Lawrenceville, PA - if Lawrenceville is close to Lancaster, he could give you some information from his ride.

you could also do a search of forums for stuff to bring on long trips, this is a popular topic and you should be able to find help. Best of Luck, road trips are the best!

Well trip went without any major incidents! Stock tires had to be replaced after only 3700 miles! Cupped bad. Return trip via Winston Salem NC 1145 miles. Started at 3am got home at 8:40 pm. Does this qualify for the iron butt award?

Have to check with the Assn. But you have to have had witnesses at the beginning and end (including dated photos), plus ALL your gas receipts.
