Great report so thanks - You sure know the dirt roads! Campgrounds too! I've been up there a few times, but my maps didn't show many dirt roads. I ended up racing through the paper land hoping not to get caught. I'll study your report some more and trace out a route or two for next season.
I bought one of those wr's last January too. Seems like all us old coots are scooping them up. They're sort of a gift for us...
I went the Wolfman route too. I admit, after the first couple days I was ready to throw the whole kit in a dumpster, they were so fiddly to pack and mount. By about day 5 I figured it all out. Happy now. I get most of my camp kit in one bag, and my personal stuff in the other. The tail bag is a medium duffel and it gets my tools, spares, camp chair, food, maps and miscy:
I shipped it west and rode the CDR last month. I left it in AZ and won't ride it again till Feb.
The little bike opens up a whole new world for me.
Thanks again for sharing.
