What kind of straps are you using there? Do they have any elasticity? Are you using the straps to hold the gear to the bike, or just to hold the gear together?

Just regular webbing straps with no elasticity, with a metal clamp that you find in any gas staion. I built a rack on the rear seat bottom with bicycle handle bars, on which the duffel rests, and the bakcpacks hang (think I posted it in the make your own farkles thread - edt. I did indeed: my TLs luggage rack). Then run two straps over the duffel to the subframe, and also a short strap low around the backpacks to make sure they don't move.

Why thank you, it was indeed nice! Just to be clear though: I didn't build the shelter or the fire pit, just used it to set up the first two nights!

Bear spray........without it, you may literally be "in the s%@t?

Personally, I always carry a spare set of throttle cables, you can ride out without a usable clutch lever, not so easy without a throttle. My spare set saved a fellow 990 rider just this last summer.

Ha! Why I never would have guessed. Excellent spot. In the Adirondacks you have to hike to lean-tos

now, there are so many types of pumps...do those small co2 cartridges really work as well as they claim?..how many cartridges to fill a tire?....as for the tubeless tires I would imagine the plug kit is a worthwhile investment....some pumps are battery operated but if I can downsize to a much smaller unit, I would conserve space for ..other things....hence my reason for the co2 question...

I carry 3 of the aluminum Motion Pro tire irons with the closed end wrenchs included in the sizes of my bikes axle nuts , and a 12 volt air pump from Aerostich. It's very small and works great. The tire irons weigh next to nothing.
