Thank you kindly for the advice and input.
I have a nomad 1700, so go about 150 miles before fillup.
I am actually a little north of woodstock, so my starting point is 2295 Towne Lake Parkway Woodstock, GA 30189 and my turn around point is 8016 West Metairie Avenue Metairie, LA 70003.
This shows it as 505 each way when putting it into google maps. Maybe I should start a little bit north and it would pad another 20-30 miles onto the trip. I planned on padding about an extra 20-30 miles over 1k, but do you think I need to do more? I was planning on driving a little distance after the po-boy location to find a gas-station as a turning around spot (was going to research a gas station about 5 miles further than the come back inn (po-boy spot). I could also take the I-59 route instead of 85/65/10 which is 518 each way from my starting point according to google maps.
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated. If need be I can head north a little for my start/stop location.
Normally by car with only one stop it takes me about 6 1/2-7 hrs to get down there. Google maps shows 8 hrs each way. I wasn't sure if I was planning on stopping every hour or just going the 150 and getting off. Normally I just go from fuel stop to fuel stop and have been fine doing this in the past. This was also on a much more uncomfortable bike than the nomad is. I might just skip the nap in Alabama, but wanted to make sure I did this as safely as possible. I also thought about just packing a small sleeping bag and mat incase I needed to pull over and just get a quick 20 minute nap on the side of the road somewhere.
