Wolfman Rocky Mountain saddlebags last week, and Black Dog skidplate and footpegs were added today. New camping gear was also purchased. I am going to be so much better put together than I was last year at this time.
And here are some pictures.

I checked out what would fit in my Kriega 20 Liter top dry bag.
It turns out a quite a lot.
Spare tubes, pump, umbrella, rescue pulleys and line, spare straps, Wale foreskin liner for the Rally 3, Warm liner, rain gear, and a few other bits.

Thanks Radek,

I replaced the cheezy junk bolts that were installed in my Scotts submount bar clamps, with a nice new and HARD pair of bolts that Radek mailed me from Canada. Thanks Radek! What a guy!


Looks like it belongs there:





Old junk bolt on left, nice hard mofo on the right:





Notice a bit of corrosion? Less than 10K miles on that POS.





Made some space for tools:




and made some space for spare tubes:






The poor bike is down for a week or two waiting for her H-pipe to get back from the fat farm after getting TIG-O-suctioned down into a nice petite 2-1. I thought about doing it myself with my MIG, and while I've repaired a moto exhaust before and the end result was functional, it was not pretty.

Still deciding what to do with the extra space in her skirts.

Then I can button her back up and go for a ride.

Started in on some maintenance. New gaskets for exhaust header (blew the right one out almost), oil, air filter, fork oil, brake fluid, and new heat shielding for the gas tanks, etc... Spring is finally here and while I wait for my 2.5" rim for the rear to arrive from RAD I might as well, right? Undressing this sassy girl is kind of fun... Still hoping to lengthen the boingers this year too. 210mm is not enough for me.
