From your post in the buying bikes and parts you have a Giant Avail. Do you know the model of the Avail.

Have you looked at the roads you want to take, if not I am sure the touring mob have some good advice. Also do a search on the touring forum (it has been split into equipment and touring) as I remember the same route being discussed.

For inspriation read as Turbotom has ridden around Australia, at 70. You might have to dig a little into his website.
