Good call on the pegs, Darin.
I would say you'll be happy with the basic mods Tom suggested. Make sure the doohickey is replaced if it hasn't been. Then think what would make your trip more pleasant. Highway pegs? Better seat? Seat cover? Bigger windshield? That's a long trip. Good riding gear? The basic carb and airbox mods will be nice. But for a long trip, I'd be more concerned with having the right tools with me, being comfortable, getting good rain gear, etc. Do you know about the doo?
Man, you're gonna have a blast. Be careful...Mexico can turn from awesome to, 'Holy shit, how did this happen' really quick. Unfortunately, I know this from experience.
