  I do plan on using a full fairing but not the body skin.I am set up for the under seat panniers.I think this will balance out the bike very well.Living in the western part of Tennessee is hard to fine any hills to amount to anything.I'll have to make some runs up to middle TN. for some hill climbing.

I left end of March 2005 and ran into subfreezing cold and a little snow at Gila Hot Springs.  If you can get through NM you're good to go.  Don't worry about the Cleveland National Forrest in San Diego County.  There's little chance of snow after mid-March.
Thanks,that was helpfull.Looking at the map,N.M. looks like my main problem.
