Hmmmmm. Subscribed.

If I join up, hopefully I can finish uninjured this time.

I'll be around West Yellowstone before the ride starts if you need any routes checked out in that area.

You can carry more but you won't have as much fun riding if you take . o much.
Whatever you take, practice packing/unpacking before you leave.
The lighter you pack, the more fun you will have. In 2011 I did it on my 450 packing as light as possible stopping just short of a bivi sack. I've never had as much fun before or since. In 3 years I've never needed a water filter. It was always available at gas stops. Stove? Not really necessary either. I've taken a stove two years and only used it once or twice per trip. 'Course I'm not a coffee drinker. YMMV.

You're right, and I rarely 'need' my stove or water filter. But I always bring em.

With 9.7 gals of gas and the love to camp outside of campgrounds...a water filter and stove are a must for off-road trips...having said that most of my cooking, which I enjoy more than most public food joints, ends up over very small wood fires...of course 'only where permitted'!

Outstanding. Don't want to drag the thread too far off the path, but do you carry a grill or something?

I'm planning to bring my "grill pan", wood pan handle attached to wire grill platform. Make a small fire, get good coals going, and flame broiled steak. Weighs nothing, but gotta have a small propane stove to make coffee and boil water, love my Coleman single burner. Worried about fire restrictions though so we'll see.

Excited for the 1000, hoping to rendezvous with a few guys close by get a small group to meet the big one. Anyone in Florence area message me. Got no touring buddies, they all got 350s and just want to trail ride.

Looking to set each camp at an "official designated campsite" every night which means even if there are fire restrictions, camp fires in designated campsites and designated fire pits are exempt. Cook on!
