[QUOTE=Pantah;17231080]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 read your ride report....very, very nice. Looks like you have the same set-up as tyrebitr...he likes the Wolfman too. I was looking for a bag I could use on other bikes as well as the WR, and am trying to make the Giant Loop work. It certainly has its advantages but not the perfect solution for me at this point. I take too much crap with me.
Thanks for the kind words, and I agree the WR is a great bike. I consider it the funnest bike I ever had, even though it throws me onto the ground very hard, on a regular basis.
