Current plans, and this may sound bad, are to haul (with a car) the bike to one of my favorite national forests. It's very hilly so I'm going to pack very light and give it a weekend of touring and camping to evaluate things.
If the gearing is good. Then no change needed. If gearing is off then I'll just do more upgrading as needed.
I'm new to touring so I'll be doing some two and three day stuff in the beginning. Its mainly going to be used for on and off road touring. And, by off road I mean established fire/gravel/dirt/park/etc roads. So, in reality I can make good use of the frame and components.
It might even turn into my short distance commuter and grocery hauler.
