What Kinda Bike Is That?

You are riding what is referred to as an "Adventure Motorcycle".
Pack up, swing your leg over the seat and ride. Everything else will take care of itself. That's because it's an adventure.
Go discover, and explore. With your new experiences, you will be able to form your own opinions about "what is where", and "what it is like." It's those discoveries that matter; not someone else's opinion.
You are going to be fine. If there is a problem, someone is always there to help you out. ALWAYS!
Your posts mentions a "last minute trip". But, the trip isn't going to happen until next week sometime! As I type this, I am trying to decide if I am going to ride out to the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, or ride up to Saguenay Fjord. I have been to both destinations SEVERAL times! I may not make my mind up until tomorrow morning when I hit the road! Where I go, doesn't matter. I just have to be back by Sunday evening.
That's the beauty of what we do; freedom to roam where we feel like going, (at a last minute's notice!)
