Sorry for offtopic, but if you have to adjust chains every 500 miles, its time to change them.Just did Chicago to Atlanta and back on my 05 Bonnie. It was a good time, but I would not advise doing 700+ miles in a day as it is quite painful. That and having a plane crash on the highway you are taking and having to sit in traffic for hours. Bike held up beautifully, just bring some wrenches to adjust the chain every 500 or so. A better windscreen would probably have made it more pleasant, but I am not that smart. Anyway good luck to anyone touring out there. Tire cap, and deer are everywhere!
Epic Trip Eric...enjoy...glad to see that you are going through Canada briefly. There is a very good Triumph dealer on your route in Hamilton Ontario - Sturgess Cycle - if you nee any help.
