Remind yourself your not going on the Road of Bones, it's the freaking USA. A tow vehicle is just a call away and parts can get overnighted. I've biked in over 30 countries, has the bike failed me a time or two, you bet, yet here I sit in my casa. If you want safe, go to Disneyland. It's supposed to be an adventure to ride to AK, relax and enjoy the trip. : )

It's rare that a throttle body sensor goes bad. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Throttle body sensor can go bad and they have to replace the throttle body. That was the only thing that ever went wrong with my first K1600GT in the 4 years I owned it.
