A carefully selected collection of new and used spare motorcycle parts has been prepared. These parts have been inventoried, clearly labeled, and set aside in large plastic storage bins inside the home garage. Two copies of the inventory listing were printed out. One copy is kept with the parts in the garage and the other copy is carried with me on the trip.
If a failure should occur, I can call home and arrange to have any of the needed parts in the inventory shipped to me overnight.
Having rebuilt several bikes of the same model from the frame up, I've become very familiar with its assembly. The resulting knowledge has provided confidence that I can perform almost any reasonable repair that may be necessary on the road. And not worrying about what to do in case of a breakdown makes the trip much more enjoyable.
