Pegasus: Road Trip

Post by PegasusRider »

Thanks to all of yalls amazing advice, I now feel like Pegasus is journey worthy. I was looking at taking a weekend trip on it somewhere maybe up to 4 hours away. I am going to change out some things to make it better for the trip. I will put the back rest back on, the highway pegs, probably take some fuel additive with me, I will install my taller windshield instead of using my low sporty one. The brakes work well, I do have new brake pads to be installed will probably do that though may not depending on time frame. I did install a volt gauge on it last night though it isnt working now. Should I bring my trickle charger also just incase? What are your suggestions for the ride. I am a very light packer so I will have one small bag with clothes and maybe a rain jacket just in case. I am in Clarksville TN, was looking at going to Asheville and the dragons tail, or Chattanooga. I know Chattanooga really well so that would be an easy journey. Just seeing what your thoughts are. Thank you!

4 hours? That's a COMMUTE for some folks, so you don't need to overthink it or overload the bike.

If your battery and charging system are good, you don't need the charger.

If you are going to ride twisties, why would you NOT have the best brake effectiveness that you can get?
