i was thinking of taking a small road trip with my bike, this will be the first time i've gone this far.

i'm planning on going about 550 miles round trip, about 4 1/2 hr driving time each way.

any tips on road trips? what to bring etc.

Just go and have fun, bring a camera and take pics too!

A tank bag is handy, you'll need a drink from time to time, camel back is handy, but a drink of some sort in your tank bag, tailsection or whatever will work.

A tire plug kit and bicycle pump can't hurt if you have a safe place to keep them .

If you use a tank bag, pack it so that its flat and somewhat soft on top, that way you can lie down on it comfortably.

In that case, you'd better bring a paddle tire with ya, unreal hookup in the sand!

How about you take a spare pair of wrists and butt! You'll need them after doing that kind of distance on a ninja 6 !!!!!
