Question Newbie Question - Long Rides

Fellow Riders,

I apologize if this questions sounds dumb, but I thought I be safe rather then sorry. I've been riding my 2010 TB for a year now and have almost 3,000 miles, but all miles have been from short rides. Longest ride I've taken was 100 or so miles.

Our Boise Triumph dealership closed a few months ago and I need to take care of a recall and sticking speedometer. The closest dealership is now Salt Lake City, 500+ miles away and I am a little weary driving that distance. My question is to those seasoned riders, is there anything special that I should do or be aware of for my long ride? I assume that my TB should handle well in a long ride.

Thanks everyone, enjoy reading this forum.
