Welcome from SW Florida (God's Waiting Room) to the best HD forum on the web. I always recommend that anyone who is new to any given make/model should go out and ride the snot out of their bike for a couple months and hopefully include at least one long trip in the mix. That's the only way you're going to find out what works ergonomically for you and what doesn't. Bars, seats, and windshields are the items most often changed to meet the needs of an individual's body type or preferences. IN terms of your question about a road trip kit, do a search on here as there's a long running thread on here about what people consider important enough to take with them all the time or at least on a longer trip. Lots of very experienced and knowledgeable folks on here who are glad to answer your questions so don't hesitate to ask.
