What's the coldest temps you guys have experienced with your setup?


Randy from Wrightwood.... raining/hailing/thunder/lightning like crazy now.

upper 20's in a 2 man REI camp dome tent (top half is mesh).

key thing is to get down to your underwear. your skin needs to be against the bag to hold in the heat. if you wear a T shirt or layer up while in the bag your are defeating the purpose of what the bag is made to do.

Joel i would love to come. not sure if i can. I have the motor free just have to pull it out, or rotate it in the frame. and then pop on the new seals and put it back together.
.
Im going to say that a no go for me.

but the + side is I got my bar risers on and cables rerouted so i can stand. no more sitting down the whole way.

and a note to all you out there if you ever lap new valves into the head buy new valve stem seals so you dont have to tear into it in 2000 miles.

I'm in.... but camping over in "Hanna Flats". I'd like to meet up and ride to Pioneer Town.
I can meet up over at CrabFlats, or if the route is through Hanna Flats swing in.
