I'm thinking about rigging the Wolfman Dry Saddlebags as pontoons and running a paddle tire - should get me through the deep stuff.

Why the hell did you guys let me buy a KLR last year?

How did the KLR guy with the hard panniers make out after he lost one (or both)?
He tied them down with some string and life went on. He was pretty new and this was how he cut his teeth with the KLR. He's back for more with the same bike.

Kept saying something about "should have gotten a smaller bike for trail riding" though.
I don't see his name on the list this year.

I take it your on a KLR? Might want to leave the hard bags at home.
Ehh, I don't check the "Northeast" section very often. I just tend to go straight to the Maine Riders thread. Now that I've seen this, you'll see me... ya poor bastards.

The Canadians seem to think I can do alright with mine too, now. They didn't lose me, at least.
