Hopefully I can have it figured out by the end of the day... my 950 has me so spoiled for long trips.

Which of the 3 is least important: a sleeping bag, a tent, or an air mattress?
...or a tools and a tube

edit:
...or food. I guess I could just carry some string and a match and eat bear grylls style

Follow Malcolm Forbes advice:

Lay out all your gear on the floor. Toss half of it away and replace with a Visa/Mastercard

FYI, Cheryl said NP borrowing the Sprinter while he's gone. She's also curious if it can make it over Black Bear Pass.

What no PILLOW?
Borrow other people tools and tubes. You will be fine, just remember after you borrow!
Have a a good time, I am jealous. I have to go back to work Monday.

But I am off headed North to Wyoming as soon as Junior gets back from football and helps me get those last two chunks of snow rail behind the DR on the roof.
Couple nights tooling around fishing, and back Sunday.

If they actually start making them, and come anywhere close to projected mileage and price, I'd get one.

Bike rewired. New tail section installed. Valves adjusted (two needed 0.005).
Ran it up to a hundred and it didn't go pop.

Now to try and figure out how to fit a week's worth of camping crap on the thing?






Wolfman to the rescue...
