Rest and refit day.
Picked up the Mighty DR from the garage (600 mile service). The final was $149.
Topped off tank. $4 or so
Came back and got gear on and looked over the tarp.
The tarp is 16'X20'. I have it under my rear seat under my main pack, and some on the actual rider's seat.
It took hours to set up this soft luggage, but it was light and already paid for years ago. I used a station to weave around the med pack in the rear bag position.
After looking at the weather forecast, I new that the 23rd would be the best day to travel out of Wilmington and into The Deep South. In this case, just west of Hilton Head Island.
