My trusty kitchen scale says it weighs 2.696 lbs in the included stuff sack.

It has the draft tube listed in the features section but no draft collar is listed.

For the a bag I can easily take down to just below freezing at this weight and price I can't complain.

In other news I've been staring at Urals again. Kid's are coming and they'd have fun in the hack. That's a good reason right?

Hack the 1150 would make a great tug and way more reliable

As to the bag....I think I know what my grankids are getting for Christmas. It is way to small for me

The 1150 tugging? Nah, I'm running it back and forth to work to much for that. But adding a non adv model to stable to hack? That makes sense.

The specs on Woot were way off... other than temp rating. A well insulated man could probably take it down to 20F in the right conditions.

The transmission on the GSA would be better suited. Regular GS is geared considerably taller

I would hack an 1100 or 1150 R or GS or GS Adventure. Then I'd hack an airhead. Then I'd hack anything else. Then I'd buy a Ural.

BigDon has a 1150 GS Adventure listed on TWT for sale if you want to put a hack on one.

You need to commission Cleatus to build you one with a Guzzi.

I was reading the other day where someone took a 1200 GSA and made an adapter to go in the rear hub hole with a electric clutch system for his hack. Made a shift on the fly two wheel drive. I've been trying to find the article again so I could post a link. I thought it was in Cycle World but I can't find it.

I'm sure BMW final drive system can handle it.
