They come with screw caps now.

Just bought some to try in the Pepsi can stoves, works good!

Talk about packing light!! I'm digging the light bike NSR150 me thinks.
Hey hey hey, its a NSR 150 SP


The bikes light, I'm light, and my gears light. When you're strumming the gearbox to coax all of the 20hp out of the thing it helps to not be laden down with unessentials . Except my penchant for picking up cute village Thai girls . Hence my need to maybe step up to a NSR or TZR 250 .

I dont want to travel light in the area of horsepower and suspension. I have 55HP at a 300lb weight. The bike really needs to weigh 250. Cant afford to have it weigh this much so I wouldnt mind another 10HP.

Light gear I got for X-mas.

I haven't had the oppertunity to try it out other than set it up in the living room while the wife was away. I am waiting for warmer weather here in southern Idaho. More pictures when I use it.

Started thinking about tent and stuff for a Labrador trip this year, it is going to be all paved and dirt road so it doesn't really matter but it is fun to mess around.

Light Setup = 8.75 lbs
sleeping bag and dry bag = 4 lbs
closed cell foam pad = .25 lbs
1.5 person Clip flashlight tent= 4.5 lbs

Comfort Setup = 18.75 lbs
sleeping bag and dry bad = 4 lbs
stool = 2.5 lbs
2 person Eureka Timberline = 7.5
Big thick Thermarest = 4.75 lbs

how light you get all depends on how much you are willing to spend.

spend good money on a sleeping bag/quilt/whatever you want to keep warm at night. also the place that money most directly affects pack size.

the best shelter setup really depends on where it will be used. Will there e bugs? rain? snow? are there trees for a hammock? My ultralight setup is a big silnylon tarp plus a mosquito net- both from campmor. I spent $75, it packs small enough to fit into a fender bag.

A stove is a necessity for me, I simply do not function without coffee. I got a deal on a gigapower, but any of the small canister type are great for easy coffee or hot water. Alcohol stoves are great, but I am too clutsy to use one in the morning.

Just get one simple water pot that all your cook kit can fit inside. A $5 aluminum coffee pot works fine and is actually lighter than many of the high dollare titanium ones. The ti ones won't bend as easily when they get crunched in a crash.

my tent, on the left, is a Eureka Exo 2 (now called a zeus 2) is a two person tent with vestibule.

Likes:
  • Its perfect size for one person with gear.
  • I need to do a good layer of scotch-gaurd on it, but otherwise it has been really waterproof.
  • Does not have a rain fly.
  • Sets up in 2 minutes. It takes longer to take it out of the bag and connect the poles.
  • Drys quickly
Dislikes
  • Without the front rain flap(vestibule) open it can get a little stuffy.
  • If I forget to run the side guystrings out to hold the vents open on the side, it can get stuffy.
  • Thin floor is kind of scary. Worried about something poking through, although nothing has yet, and I have been rough with it.
I have two of them, if someone wants to buy the other.
