Well, for everybody else, sorry for 'jacking the thread....


The dragonfly is a great multi-fuel stove. The advantage of white gas is it burns well even in sub-zero temps. You have to keep a butane cannister from freezing if you're going to get any pressure out of it.



The downside is you have to carry fuel, although it's easy to come by in a variety of fuels. I would not burn unleaded in one, too explosive. And you still need cookware. It ends up being more bulky and more fussy than a jetboil. The latter you just light and it's super efficient so boils water in about 2 minutes. For me the butane cannisters are more convenient. Carry a large one for a long trip or if it will get used a lot. Otherwise, for weekending the tiny jetboil can fits right inside the stove and will heat about 20 pots of water (about a half liter). The flux ring on the bottom of jetboil cookware really improves efficiency. Read up on them here: www.jetboil.com



The 'Flash' is the one for biking, unless you have the $$ to pitch for a titanium one.



I googled 'stevor stove' with no results.

the best way i can think to explain them is that they physically look the same. they are made of a kevlar type material. the inside of the bag was lined with a dry bag type material. the ones i saw were black. they were nice looking. but, these were not being mass produced yet some things may have changed. they also come with an inside dry bag thingy that's removable.

A few days before the end. I stopped off at a Canadian Tire store to pick up a cheap replacement tent, but it's not very high quality and packs kind of big, so I'd rather not use it as my primary touring tent.

If you ever visit Meat Cove and camp at the top of the cliff, remember to leave the tent staked down until you've collapsed it and are ready to start folding it up!

Ha! I think that goes without saying! Looks like you guys have beautiful areas up there to experience. Jealous!
I am leaning toward the Big Agnes Wyoming Trail tent.

Ah yes, I had seen that. Liked it too.

I think there are issues with controlling flame, but perhaps I didn't get all the details. I'm not real excited about liquid fuel either, although sourcing a bottle of 'heet' is probably pretty easy.

I'll look at it again. IIRC I was thinking about making or buying one to check it out. But I'm still a big fan of the Jetboil.


Just wow on the lost tent. Holy smokes!!

I was all ready, after weeks of research, to order the 3 piece set of GIVI Trekkers for my 2013 Tiger 800XC... But they were out of stock for the few sites that listed the matching set. So I emailed Givi. Prompt reply explained that the 3 piece set is no longer available (so no discount and no keyed alike) and I will have to buy sepereate bags and a separate lock set and manually re-key all of them to match.

Just another way for them to make more money. Sigh.

Has anyone tried using the Wolfman bags with the Jesse racks. Just thinking that the form fitting Jesse rack and Wolfman bags would be great for short trips and then maybe pick up the hard Jesse bags for longer trips without having to change racks.

Haven't tried it, but I expect that would work fine. The Wolfman bags are pretty flexible as far as mounting is concerned. They don't even really need to go over racks; having the racks is just useful to help support the bags. As such, I would think any rack would work fine.

I think I have it narrowed down to either Pelicans or the Givi Trekker for side luggage on my tiger. Problem is I would really like to see this stuff in person before ordering. Does anyone know places that carry this stuff in stock in the midwest? I am in southern Michigan halfway between Detroit Chicago. What about the cycle show? Givi have a set up there or other vendors that might have some of these systems on display?

+1 on the Dragonfly. It does it all and burns Diesel, kerosene, and will use gas according to MSR. I've burned premium in it with success (it didn't blow up) When I backpacked Hawaii, charcoal lighter fluid was my favorite.

Any update on the new larger size Wolfmans? I don't see anything on their site yet.
