I'm a backpacker too, and i've done week long trips including camping with my Ortlieb's where are 19L a piece I think. So about 40L total.

The lighter the better:

I've ridden quiet a few of those roads on it before. There's one thing I've learned in the course of owning that bike, there are few problems more throttle won't solve. One way or the other that is.

The 1 %er Chessie Beach GPX

Got another completely untested GPX that I will need to get out and test ride. Any wing mates interested in getting lost and tweaking routes with me?

It is 157 miles, and contains 5 or 6 dirt sections. I figure it will be our 1%er ride (2 miles dirt/156 miles total=1%)

I'm interested in tagging along. When are you thinking?

My comment was focused on the type of trip not necessarily the type of bike. We are bringing the little bikes just so we can putt around and screw off, not really caring where we end up, what speed we travel at, what we do, traveling light, or how far we go....just a nice relaxed easy going mini vacation with a bit of fun mixed in.

Word. I'm sure I'll be fine and if I'm holding it up or having problems I'm fine turning around and cutting bait.

The only little bikes I've is ktm 200 and a 450SMR. Nothing about those bikes is relaxing :)

I got a new nikon d7000 I want to play with too, so a more sedate pace is fine.

1%er Ride

Alrighty...

A few updates, I will look at the calendar tonight and see when we could get out. With any luck, we'll schedule this in the next 4-6 weeks on a weekend day.

Crofrog: That would be fab if I could get your advice on the track. I will post more detailed photos tonight.
