Thanks and keep living the dream!
Thor Impact Rig SE. I've got one too. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't really work well with a Leatt brace. I had a couple of good crashes in mine and it protected me well and held up well itself.

Dude, it's been a while, but I still carry with me to this day what I learned from you guys, besides inspiration.... from changing tires to negotiating for hotel rooms. Fond memories. My house is your house if you ever want to fly and ride in SoCal.



Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you might be celebrating at this time of year to everyone, again thank you for the kind words. I'm sorry for slacking, tour ended and of course I've/We've been in motion non-stop.... soon.... I will always choose riding instead of talking about riding any day.

May I start a little early since I'll be working all night and wish all my fellow ADV riders a happy New Year.
May it bring you and yours good health, prosperous work, and endless roads to get Lost on!


-Finn










Thank you for the nomination Erik, I haven't been able to make a photo worthy of the front page yet.

More than not, they aren't made, but happen. Good luck though, you have more that qualify than most.

Not true. The effort and care you put into your photos is evident in every single image. Thanks for sharing them

I guess in this economy I'm lucky to have too much prosperous work and not enough time to get lost

Happy New Year to you Finn.

Technical question: I recently stepped up from a Canon P&S to a Canon DSLR...EOS T3. This season, I'd like to take it out to shoot on some of the knarly riding days. BUT, I do not wanna beat it up or worse, break it, while doing the riding. How do you protect your equipment, on those kind of days??

A recommendation I got from another backcountry rider: Lowepro Slingshot 102AW. You wear it like a backback and when you want to use the camera it swings around in front of you with easy access to the camera.

Thank you, you as well!



In my experience the best way to carry/protect your DSLR is in a hard case like a Pelican or HPRC case that has at least an inch of foam surrounding the camera. My later adventures as it evolved for me while carrying a big camera I had it strapped to the bike with ROK straps not only to isolate it further by not bolting to the bike but also making it a quick release type setup so I could remove the box easily. Should be easy to look back in this thread to see my various setups over the years.

Personally, I wouldn't have anything as large and hard as a DSLR on my body anywhere... in the end I'd rather not break my body when I fell on it, but I fall a lot.
Some folks carry them in a tank bags, I never went that route either as I think a photo worth taking is worth spending the time to get off the bike to frame the shot and a small camera in my tank bag filled those on the fly photo needs. I live out of my tank bag/box and it's too prime of real estate for a big camera and there's no such thing as a 100% water/dustproof soft tank bag anyways.


Baja teaser.

OK, good deal. Thanks for the reply. Pelican case is what I was thinking about too.
