I'd be in as a second but not sweeper. If you want to do an over nighter for this ride I'll offer my camp off of Wagoner but it will change your route a little.

Here are a couple more pack options too:

Sette Brand, 100oz, Decent Storage ~$30

Hydrapak Brand, 70oz, Less Storage ~$15

I like the Hydrapak brand of bladders and I have a couple of their older packs. They seem to hold up well.

That's very kind of Nuclieye of u to offer to camp out i might take u up on that one . U can even lead also if u don't want to be in second that fine by me , but regardin' the final destination & coordinates of this trip still to be discussed and refined over a couple of meetin' ,nothin' is written in stone . i am definetly up to a Wagoner trip sometime soon , i guess z best time to do Wag. rd is around april .

I am running the Starcom1 intercom on my bikes. I have an old Generation 1 unit on the BMW and a Generation 2 unit on the ST1300. The Gen2 unit is far superior. The primary problem with the GEN1 units are the connectors pulling loose from the intercom and the size. The Gen2 units, and the GEN3 units are half the size of the GEN1 units and incorporate a pigtail connection which is a vast improvement. I am ordering a GEN2 for the BMW this weekend, waiting for my '08 bonus check.

I will help anyone who wants to install an intercom on their bikes. I can also fabricate brackets if needed.
Hi there ShinySideUpAZ

check your PMs

Cheers !!!

Sometimes all you need to prove there is a God is look in the mirror at your own face, then look into your childs.
