[QUOTE=2T2_Ryder;22634355]Thanks Bugchewer, I thank your sons for their service as well. You are exactly right, planning this trip will help give me something to look forward to and help this deployment go by quicker. Every chance I get to use the Internet over there will be used to buy gear and send it to my house in the states waiting for my return :) Great call in taking the scram on your next trip, sure the tiger is better suited, as was my Sprint 1050 that I sold but the scram is IMO the essence of motorcycling and lets you get back to the basics and feel the world around you. Enjoy!

I like the convenience of not having to tied down everything and being able to lock them.
Awsome ChuBrocka, I really like your setup. That is along the lines of what I want to do. What tank bag are you running and where did you get it and the dry bag? The HT racks are not out of the question but I'm not sure how often I would use them as I probably won't be doing too many long trips after this one until I retire from the military in 6 years. The rotopax is a must though. Oh, awesome pics, looks like a great trip. Thanks for posting!
Thanks,it was a blast! I was cruising with a couple of buddies. It was a nice mix with on my Scram, a DR650 and an F800GS.
The tank bag is Cortech. Not sure of the model though. I bought it at a garage sale. Not the best fit (too big for me) but it does the trick. As for te dry bag, it's just a $15 model I got at a local sports store chain. I know the heavy duty wolfman bags are popular around here, but I've found this one more than adequate.
