Burton, I have Wolfman Enduro Saddlebags. I don't have a tank bag. You are still welcome to borrow it. The only chairs I have are rather large too.

Mill Hall, PA dual sport run.

I'm headed for Mill Hall, PA for the dual sport run on 1-2 June. There's a tight dual sport run and a big bike course. If anyone wants to go and share expenses, let me know. I'm riding a KTM 400EXC.

Ahh gotcha! I think I'm good on those. I have that 10 gallon dry bag that I think will house more than everything I need for three days. I should be able to wear my motorcycle jacket and route my phone into it somehow so I can work without the tank bag. Hek, Amazon is taking their sweet time on this shipment, so I probably wont even have my charger in time.

@ Burton, big folding chairs travel too, absent small ones (note blue thing on top of the dry bag):


Didn't say they were fashionable though.

I will be bringing an extra incase we have to make shift a canopy for us or if for some crazy reason the tent leaks in the ceiling I will spread it over the top.

I have tried avoiding having to borrow things for this weekend, but does anyone have a small foldable chair they wouldn't mind lending? I looked around, but everything seemed huge and I don't want to get stuck standing at the camp site all weekend. I think dirtmonkey may have offered an enduro tank bag? If so, and the offer still stands shoot me a PM. I shouldn't be lacking space to store things, but would like a tank bag to put the phone in if I have it plugged in while riding. If my charger doesn't come tomorrow I won't need it though. Thanks in advance to anyone that may be able to help.

Run up to REI and buy an Alite Monarch chair. They pack super small. About the size of a nalgene bottle.

You can get creative on the full on relaxation with them.






EDIT: Looks like REI now has it's own version of the monarch but with 4 legs and a bit further off the ground... Look's petty cool..

Ugh, these things are going to destroy my fruit trees, and most likely my face in the mountains this weekend.

Anybody wanting to head out to the dirt with me tomorrow then branch off in the afternoon? Looks like most people are hitting that rally.

I have to help a friend ferry a private plane to Conn on Friday. If I can get back into town early enough I will head towards Natural Bridge Friday night. If not then I will ride over early Sat morning. Sunday morning, weather permitting I will probably leave Natural Bridge early .... 6-ish am. I need to leave early because on Sun I'd like to ride my Honda CB900C over to the Central VA Classic & Vintage Motorcycle Show in Powhatan.

I have access to a 1965 Honda 305 Superhawk that I would love to ride as well. Only problem is I can't ride two bikes at one time. If anyone is interested in going and riding one of the bikes let me know. Jersey Mark is sitting on the Honda 305.
