It's a pet carrier we picked up at a local Petsmart store that my wife modified slightly to attach to the same points as my Bagster tank bag to the Bagster tank protector. Works really well. He wears his harness and is tethered into the carrier via a short strap. I think he weighs about 15-17 lbs.

Since the strom is gone I dont find myself anywhere near where you all are talking about. I live in Cleveland and see a few DS running around sometimes. I am the KTM690R and try to stay in the mountains as much as possible.

Ah, I hope not. It should turn out to be a pretty good thread once a lot of the folks here know about it.

Dark colored Beamer (It all happened quick) traveling north bound on 441 just before Tallulah Gorge yesterday @ 3:00pm. Rider was wearing blue gear with Hi-viz stripes on arms and legs of said gear.

I was traveling south bound on the orange KTM 950 waving backatcha.

Likewise, Marshall. I had no idea you were up that way or I would've tried to grab a little grub or some such with you. We'll see you soon.

This all started over a mystery rider on a blacked out KTM Adventure, all black gear, cool looking. I can't even remember the name of the road I was on, but when they passed by me I felt this little umm, "feeling" and I have always wondered who that was. I had half a mind to turn around and chase them. (I was riding with my family at the time, and a little bored maybe.) That's been forever ago now. I think maybe it was all just my imagination. I am going to be SO embarrassed if we figure out who that was.
