Nice set up... what size Wolfman Rollie Bags are those... Medium or Large? I am thinking of getting the Large ones for everyday use and to stay on the bike.

Thanks in advance.

I assumed they are Expedition saddlebags:

Expedition:


I can see now that the Rolies have a black panel between the horizontal bands, and the saddlebags don't.

Rolie:


What rack is underneath?

1Down-5Up - Is that the Wolfman Peak tail bag?

I want to look at one, but am also considering a Rolie for the tail.

Yes it is, I really like it. It has internal straps so I have a bicycle pump, knife, rope secured in there.
Its handy for quick access for camera's, water bottles etc. I can put a pair of shoes in there. Its not waterproof like a Rolie though.

I avoid Rocky when I can. They have great prices but shipping to Canada gets costly.
Still cheaper at Rocky though $95 after shipping.

I would rather order here;

Free shipping over $100

or here;

I have been using the Mitas on my 530 EXC and have been very happy so far. Great traction on pavement and dirt. Not sure about longevity though. I have about 1500kms on them and they are maybe 30-40% worn.



Cheers

Well, I just did my fork seals. Damn, what an easy job!!! Stuff paying a bike mechanic to do it. It was a nice easy relaxing job really, nothing hard or strenuous. You just meticulously go through the steps and before you know it, they are back together and done!

Is there a step by step procedure somewhere for fork seal replacement?


My kind of garage!

1Down-5Up;
Did you pick the Koplin fuel can over the Rotopax for a reason or was that just more conveniently available. It is wider correct??

I hear you. I drive South once or twice every year, and always bring back basic stuff like tires & tubes, Rotella T6, oil filters, chains, etc. using the free shipping to a relative's house. Savings are probably 40-50% when I factor in lower selling prices, free shipping (no customs brokerage), and no sales tax.
