Nice pics, glad you guys got some camping in.
I know.

I could have gotten a picture of my bike all packed up, and me giving the snow the middle finger with the bike in the background...

I think the person that mentioned a man named Manchester had it right.

The Manchester in McCall owns (and remodeled) Shore Lodge. He also owns the Whitetail golf course and the Ice Rink has his name on it cuz' he donated like 3/4 of the money for it.

I went by Deadwood Rd last week with Phil and Heath and noted that snow machines were parking there and running up the Deadwood Road.

Anyone know if it's open only to snow machines of if it'd be open to 'whatever'? (ie motorcycles with chains....)

I thought you didn't have time for such nonsense. Shouldn't you be working on a degree or something

Ryan, I wanted to thank you for the D&B saddlebag idea that I saw on your XR at HT this weekend. On my way home I stopped and picked one up $15. I had to do a little alterations ot make it fit right, and some costom hold downs. here are a few pics.

Indeed. In fact... I am at the moment (granted, taking a procrastination break...).

I figured Craig was hard-core enough to make a set of chains... the least I can do is set aside an afternoon to follow him in case he goes ass-over-tea-kettle.

They look great!

I don't sew, so I ended up cutting mine, and riveting them together in a fashion that set them the right distance off my seat.

Also, a tip... if you want them to last multiple seasons, run a bead of shoe-goo along all the stress seams and it'll make the bags last a REALLY long time. Granted, for $15, you can just go grab another pair too. I've got 3 seasons on mine and they're still in one piece... so far.

What bags are those and where did you get them? I've been looking for something small enough, cheap enough, and light enough to throw on the KLX and not need racks.

They are a saddlebag from D&B supply $15, I'm not sure of the brand name. http://mydbsupply.com/index.php/

Thanks guys, my google list includes a Manchester in the state somewhere, but maybe that's the one.

Cheers
