Hitting the road:

On the Road:



Set up with tent in background:



Somewhere in New York:



The top bag carries my sleeping pad, so is light. Under that is my tent, and the heavier stuff in the Tourmaster sidebags. The bagster tankbag holds my camera, wallet, phone, GPS, extra maps, and a small blanket.

I had a hell of a lot more than camping gear with me. I've been told I should buy a Goldwing...









Same setup fits on the DR as well. Same topcase, I just switch it between bikes.

Thumb Wow!!!

Just finished reading this entire post, having started yesterday. Of course, my employer isn't too happy about it since I've done nothing at work so far this week!

I am in awe of all the information, photos, fulfilled dreams that are posted here. To say that this old man is feeling yearnings to hit the roads with gear strapped on is an understatement! Because of all of you I probably will soon. But I will tell you now that I am holding each and every one of you responsible for when my wife gets upset with me for buying more equipment, taking off for the weeekend, or even making her sleep in a tent!

Thanks again for making my day(s)!

Happy, safe rides & God bless!!

Robby

Pole Mod

I know it's not a pic of my gear but it's still good info. I have a tent that I'm happy with but the pole sections are 24" long. I found tension pins at the hardware store today that were the perfect size for my project.

I needed 1/4" X 2" for my poles.


I took a screwdriver and widened the gap in the tension pin. Drill a hole in but not through a block wood to hold the pin for you.


With one end widened it's a tight fit putting in inside the pole. The other end remains small enough for the pole to slip over like it's intended to.


Once I run the shock cord through I'll have cut my poles down to about 14" making it more compact for packing.

* BONUS TIP *
Since there is a split in the tension pin you can just stretch the shock cord thin enough to snap into the pin tube! When cutting down the aluminum rod just be careful not to go crazy and cut the cord...No need to fish new cord through a tiny tube!

Finished product.

Thanks! It is a nice clean setup, but the suspension really isn't up for any spirited riding with that much weigh behind the rear wheel.

As for the scenery, I think that was somewhere near Grasslands Natl Park in North Dakota, of all places.

Great Chair!

Where can I get such a excellent chair?
The things is that I do not see it on the bike. Can be so small that does not seem to be on the bike?
Greetings

Sweet Home,......Chicago!!!



Excellent gadget. I do not see it on the bike. Can be so small that seems that you found it in the campig site?
Where to buy it?
Thank You.

Ricardo who are you asking about the chair? You need to say who you are asking so the right person can answer.

Edit: OK so now we see who you are asking. The chair is in the black bag next to the Blue bag. It is called a kermit chair
