        Brilliant. The only addition I would suggest would be to load the gear and do a series of day trips before the main event. Get used to the bike being different and also, more importantly, build up your road fitness. We do a lot of 2 up touring on a 750F Kat. The first year we found really hard physically and found we were better having shorter days but more consistent miles the doing big miles day 1 and 2.
        If you are doing long trips (3 weeks) plan for some "non-bike" days. We got caught in some really bad weather one trip so holed up in a motel for a day and just sat in the room watching movies. Next day clear weather and we were dry, sorted, and back on the road. Felt a lot better after a full day out of the saddle.
