^^ Wonderful! Is that the dry duffle? How do you like it, does it get stuffy if you keep moist things in it (kinda unavoidable on a long trip)?

I borrowed the bag from my brother, so I can't really comment. I would just put the damp things in a separate garbage bag before putting it into the dry bag. The bag is from Mountain Equipment Coop in Canada.

How is the riding with the METZELER Enduro 3 tires? (comparing them with the OEM tires).

^^ I just noticed a lot of you guys don't have headlight guards... Trust me the guard will pay for itself 10 times over if a rock gets ya. Just a friendly reminder

I've got the plastic shield but my buddy found some cool stuff from 3M instead. Supposedly 3M makes some thick (3-4mm) clear sticker/goo type stuff that you can cut to size to stick to your lens and then you only have 1 surface to clean instead of 3!

The Enduro 3 is not the right size for the rear, but fit ok. As said by my friend, works much better than the stock tires on dirt roads. Wear faster too.
