The post lady stopped by and dropped this off. The testing begins. The videos I tested this weekend plays back all choppy on my computer. Not sure what's up with that. Shouldnt need a raid drive. The camera was set at the lowest resolution. Any ways another piece of the puzzles is in place.

Spent much of last couple of evenings working on figuring out what the hell was wrong with the netbook. It just kept freezing. After some frustrations, finally figured out that I needed to update the bios. I can't believe that manufacturers don't point these things out. It takes people digging through forums to figure it out. If you're mom and pop forget about it. Ok rant over.

Look what the nice post lady dropped off.
Another important puzzle piece.

Yes, I hope all things align. Right now, it's really the trip planning thread.

Tankbag advice

I need a tankbag. Wondering if anyone can weigh-in. GL Diablo or Wolfman Enduro? Would be great to hear from someone who has used both.

I travel light, so don't plan on putting much in there, cellphone, contour battery chargers, electronics. Maybe some snacks.

Which is smaller? I can't really tell from the pictures.

Great Tank bag...Fandango...by http://www.giantloopmoto.com/. No need to remove tankbag for refueling; just half zip bottom of bag to tilt over for gasing up. Strap stays on bike.

Great stuff...great saddle bag...great guys...

Tank Bag

Go with the Wolfman Enduro or even a bigger model of Wolfman. I have the Enduro and love it, but also use other Wolfman bags to accommodate just a little bit extra gear.

Does anyone have the tracks for NV and OR they could send me? Trying to plot tracks on those 2 states are challenging. I've sorta eyeballed the highlighted lines on the maps and done my best, but am not completely confident its correct.

I'm honestly not sure but am guessing 175250 miles a day. 3 weeks to Oregon total I think. Operating start date August 15th.

Decided on the luggage. Wolfman expedition tank bag, enduro e10 saddlebags and enduro duffle. My target maximum weight for this trip is no heavier than 30 lbs of luggage.

Lightening up is an expensive proposition unfortunately, but I believe its worth it. Have a great trip.
