The SOL is smaller and lighter then the Flash. SOL is 4.1"x6.5"(28 oz cup) and weighs 10.5 oz vs 4.1"x7.1"(32 oz cup)/14 oz weight for the Flash.

I really like mine. The only thing I've used mine for is boiling water for coffee. It holds enough water for my 16 oz coffee mug with just enough left to rinse out the filter holder. Works great for camping off the ST.

If you get their coffee making press, remember you'll use a lot of water to clean it.

I stand corrected. Will be checking both out at the local EMS this week. Thanks Wayne.

Anybody else planning on the 7 mountains weekend in August?

I bought the SOL. If it's good enough for Wayne, it's way too good for me. Thanks for the advice Wayne.

Just for verification purposes: You are talking about Wed. the 26th and the BYOB/Seneca Rocks (June 27-30) camp....right?

Do we need to have a planning meeting?

Father's Day weekend Ride to Breakfast?

Who's interested in breakfast and a nice little ride tomorrow morning? Bohemia House or Twinnys? 8AM or 9AM? Cmon guys, lets get something going here.

Can't do Sunday, Gary and I are taking our KLRs to Dover DMV on Sunday for the sportbike safety class.

I can't do Sat.. Mom's outta town and I'm on deck.

You guys are too good for that course.

I'm gonna go out and spread a couple gallons of burnt oil mixed with a bucket of dog shit on the course just to make it a little more challenging for you two......

You guys have fun.
