Hello everyone,

I am planning my first big trip and I would like any advice I can get for it. I am riding a Yamaha Virago 250, I understand it is small motorcycle but I am not planing on taking it on the highways, only occasionally for an hour or two. Below is my draft on what I am planing to improve on the motorcycle and new gear that I am planing to buy. Please, feel free to give me indications for the most appropriate gear - I am going to be riding during summer (end of July - beginning of August ).

Motorcycle Improvements
  1. Front sprocket from 16 to 17 teeth and back sprocket from 45 to 42
  2. Mirror extenders
  3. Saddle bags- extended brackets joined at the top that go to the bottom - move the blinkers -
  4. Sissy bar bag -
  5. Windshield
  6. Tachometer -
  7. Phone/GPS stand + GPS + Thick cover for my phone - USB charger - seperate battery
  8. Hands free
  9. Highway bar ?
  10. Muffler modification ?
  11. Improve headlights ?
  12. GoPro camera
  13. Chain Lubricant
Gear/Equipment
  1. 3 liters of gas to carry - I need to stop every 250 km
  2. Backpack - to carry documents, money and small stuff
  3. Rainsuit
  4. Summer Jacket
  5. Summer Pants
  6. Summer Boots/Shoes
  7. New gloves ?
  8. Adjusting top cushion ?

Stop every 250 km for a break - stretch and take gas
