This meant we spent more time on rural mountain highways than on the interstate. We went over 4 passes that were 9000ft or greater. It was a wonderful trip and we had a lot of fun.

There were a couple of things that were really handy:
* Pledge wipes - we used two packs of them for helmet cleaning and wiping down our luggage before bringing it in the hotels. (Thanks Grommet!)
* USB battery banks. It was super nice to be able to just plug in a battery to our Sena radios when they died.
* Ram mount for my phone - Would have been much more difficult navigating through salt lake without it
* Sena radios - Made communication easy. When getting frustrated in traffic, music helped a lot.
* Givi hard cases - it was very nice to have everything secure, yet easily removable.
* Hydration packs

Thank you everyone for your help!


EDIT: The tool kit came in handy too. My shift linkage came apart on the way home.
Congratulations. If you don't have the inner bags I highly recommend them. You don't have to remove the bags from the bike and they are lighter and easier to carry.
