I've taken dozens of road trips, some as long as 6,000 miles. Most are just 2-3 days now. But there are some things I always bring....
24 liter tank bag(Tour Master)
clean rags and bottle of water(to clean your faceshield)
telescoping fishing rod
walkman radio/tape player
tire repair kit
throttle lock(oh yea)
oil change and fresh tires(depends on how far you plan on going)
2-3 days of clothes(I usually hit a hotel every 3-4 days to take showers and do laundry)
The advice to take some shorter trips to determine what you need and
don't need is spot on.
