I understand the bag-lady look is all the rage this year among the Winterpeg GS glitterati. Maybe add a nice shopping cart to tie to the back when you need to haul more 'stuff'?

Green garbage bags last forever as long as you put them inside the bag. When we went to Newfoundland a couple of years ago that's what we did - we lined the el-cheapo bags we had and placed the clothes in the garbage bags and twisted the top of the bag closed, then nothing got wet but the exterior of the bag. Everything inside was dry.

We've been doing that on snowmobiles for years.

I guess I should have started a new thread...

"Bikers 101 ways to use green garbage bags."

1. Low Speed rain suite, bags purchased at the Dollar Store!
2. High Speed rain suite, bags purchased at Costco.
3. Boot Liners
4. Bike Cover, 3 large bags duck taped together.

And so on....

No, no, no. Never for boot liners. Bread bags are the way to go there. Much more streamlined fit

I am currently trying out a Corbin seat on my KLR.It seems ok so far, a lot harder though. With the sheepskin on it I think it will be good for some long rides.

In lieu of the 3 bag cover, carry one garbage bag to cover seat/sheepskin overnight to ward off the wet ass from morning dew, and yes bread bags are the preferred boot liner.

I had a Corbin leather seat on my R1150GS and one morning as I came out of the B & B I was staying at in Newfoundland I found the owner's cat exercising his claws on the leather seat cover...

Kept the seat covered after that. Fleece would help in that respect.

I agree.........Fleece that damn cat with the shredded seat, and he will be reluctant to do that again....

Dan, that is going to require a great deal of thought. Nothing like a 24hr ride in a cage to ponder a suitable response. I'll get back to ya on that one!

Was looking forward to meeting some you N.O. guys.
Just came across WI to MN. Really nice weather with a forecast to stay nice till at least Monday. Should be good across the top of MI, WI to Duluth and International Falls. Or up to Thunder Bay.
Cheers
