    I always carry some talcum powder when I take long trips. Plus, I had perforated leather inserts added to my stock seat. That helps a lot!

    This is my first post and I am a recent convert to HD's from street bikes so all the creature comforts are new to me, and it's nice.... I love my highway pegs, at 6,2 265 to stretch out on a long haul is priceless. Second only to the pegs is the saddlebag cooler.(Show Chrome King Kooler for Hard Saddlebags HDKC
    4.8 out of 5 stars 6 Reviews) got it on Amazon worth every penny. As for travel tips I live in Staten Island NY so my only tip is to get the hell out of the city when you can. Head up, rubber side down and enjoy.

    Non HD parts: 3/4 in floor board spacers, saddle bag cooler(a must)windshields a few but use tinted 9in.

    1 street bike left just won't giver her up, don't judge she has 164 to the wheel.

    I got the same thing and am sending it back. It leaks like a sieve...its supposed to be waterproof and every time I use it, my saddlebag is full of melted ice. I even put the ice in baggies and the condensation still leaked out....

    After having taken a number of long trips, one that was 7600 miles I can't recommend enough the adjustable riders backrest. I finally broke down and bought one after trying to snag a used one with no luck. I was on a trip visiting my brother, ordered one so that it would show up at his house and I'd have it for my ride home, about 1400 miles. Well the ride home didn't go as planned thanks to some nasty storms, and the last day I made the decision to try going all the way home to beat another storm, 890 miles. I never would have made it without the backrest, it makes a world of difference in comfort so if you're on the fence about buying one I say get it, it was worth every penny.

    I second the Anti Monkey Butt powder. In Sturgis I had to go the commando route though with just the powder as the heat had my boys dropped precariously low and I pretty much sat on them till I could ditch my drawers.

    I just got back from Namibia which is also my 50th country! Granted, it was for work, but it still feels awesome to get to that milestone. When I was a kid, I pretty much just wanted to travel the world, so I consider myself very fortunate to be able to see so much.
