I've been on my Ninja for 6 or 7 years now, I've lost count. I have put over 40k miles on it. I'm in the same boat, mine does everything I need it to. Someday I'll get a bigger bike but until then I'll keep riding the tires off mine.
Solo ride. I sent the majority of my luggage home with my girlfriend last week, she is heading for Canada. I've just got a backpack with clothes, some tools, a tent and my riding gear. The plan its to strap a milk create to the back and make the best of it. When I went out to Maine I had a custom made saddle bag set up and two small duffel bags. I have a picture of it all loaded down somewhere
Hey, maybe post some pics of the bike next to the tent
Agree with Kremtok, that is a crazy plan. If I do any kind of miles (>200), it will not be on a bike....unless it is a motorcycle venue.
Edit - OH no!!! poor bike.
