Pre-trip Maintenance

Peter Duncanson

We're planning our first really long trip, to the MOA rally in New York in July.  My 2006 RT has about 22,000 miles on it, and I've had it since 8,000 miles.  No major maintenance has been done since I've had it.  I've never even owned a bike with this many miles on it. 
Between now and then it will get a new rear tire and oil change, change brake pads if needed, and maybe change the final drive oil.
What else should I plan to do before the trip?
