    everyone else on the road can't see you.

    Don't go pass too many gas station.

    And above all else enjoy your travels.

    It's colder than a witch's tit here, so wondering what kind of temperatures you'll see wherever you are this time of year? What country and what's your route?

    I guess we're not sure what kind of tips you're after, but here goes...

    Heated jacket, heated gloves, Windjammer (for warmth and sound- it's a neck/helmet sock thingie)
    Sena bluetooth in helmet for Waze traffic alerts, Google map navigation, find nearest coffee shop/brew pub information, etc. (Watch- that helmet phone suggestion will strike a nerve- it's a tool. Use it, turn it off, ride free)
    Aux USB battery to charge phone or Sena, if needed while riding or camping
    Raingear, boots that are waterproof
    Tools, tire repair, etc.

    I like to camp when touring to save money and for the added experiences that brings. If you're considering doing that, let me know and I'll pass on a few tips there, if you'd like.

    Be sure to post some shots and tell of your adventures when you return.

    Don't eat yellow snow, never work with animals and children. On a serious note - enjoy the adventure.

    Good suggestions by @Journeyman28778
    I would add a Noco GB70 jump starter in a good tank bag.

    I would install a voltmeter on the bike and monitor it when travelling. Like to know if the bike is not charging before the bike tells me by quitting with a dead battery. Gives me a chance to find a service area.
