They also make a net top for that ultralite cot, to replace the solid top fabric. So, basically a hammock that is a cot.

Who makes that blue & white drybag you have on your topcase?

That looks pretty clever!

This is always my thought. I don't currently have a topcase for my bike but the topcase has been my 63l Jansport. I figure if need be, I at least can carry a decent amount of things off of the bike. Plus if I pack it and lash it down right, it makes a nice little lower back support.

I never can hit amazon when they have those things in stock, in fact they are 'temporarily' out of stock right now. I threw in the towel and ordered one from gofastandlight.com and it cost 41 bucks with shipping. I might order that collapsible fire bowl out of curiosity.

A buddy of mine ordered one for each of us, (as he lives in the lower 48) for $26.95 from here and it worked out to $34.16 each, including shipping.
I just used a SS veggie steamer from the mart ($7.99?), lined with some foil to hold the briquettes. Used it pretty extensively this past summer, on my 3 month 3day, 21,000 mile tour.. Worked OK. Just make sure you have something that will hold the veggie steamer a little closer to the bottom of the grill, (I used my SS plate turned upside down to stand the steamer on) if you go that route. I know the fire bowl they sell to go with it is a bit larger, so the height of it may not be an issue.
If you go with the veggie steamer from the mart, do not forget to line it with foil .... or bad things will happen to it! DAMHIKT!
