k - talk to me at the RDV...
I'll have to work on my travelling setup for the WR450. I'm only 30 minutes from the RDV rally at the Black Bear and it's a little embarrassing to be hauling it over. I just haven't gotten my bike camping act together yet. The main issue is I recently mounted dirt knobbies, and they are too much trouble to swap out for d/s tires. I think from now on I'll just run the Shinko 244 rear on it, grippy in the dirt, cheap, easy to mount, and street-able. Seems like the perfect tire for me, but I haven't tried one on the 450 yet, so the first one will be a test run. I'd hoped the Pirelli MT43 would the right rear for a d/s tire, but I found myself suck at the bottom of too many hills. If I'm going to be let down by my tires I'd rather it be called a dual sport tire to begin with!
How much crap can I except to pack on a little bike for a weekend camping trip? I can't quite see my queen size air mattress & 3 room tent fitting anywhere. I'm sure I will see a lot of good solutions from you guys at the RDV. Maybe one of those one-wheel trailers would be the ticket? Then I could bring my "Sallydog" along too, I have his/her twin, who would just love to travel like that.
I can't see myself spending $800 on a little trailer, but maybe I can make a DIY version. I wouldn't think it really needs a shock absorber unless I go off-road. My driveway is probably the worst it would see!
30 minutes away....make 2 trips. I gotta think of everything?
That's why you're the Head Moran!
Parking's not a problem at this one but I did that last time. Road the big bike with all the gear then stopped off the next morning an switched to the little one.
My big bike has an electrical problem....and it's on the "back burner" of my projects list....
Provided my vacation is approved.
Edit: Which it was, so I am.
Just booked site 512 for thurs, friday and sat nights. Willing to share site and price.
Laconic will the lovely Ms. Flutesong be accompanying you?
I hope so. I need to talk to her about her schedule. She has a very crowded social calendar.
I am in and.....
YES! YES! YES!
See y'all then.
Are you going to bring along Nancy and the other Mike?
Oh yea, they'll probably get in a day of riding before I get there.
We're all looking forward to hangin' and ridin' with y'all again!
Do they have screen names here?
No, they're lurkers from way back. "Pushin Dirt" is Michaels given name from this beer forward...
I am IN! Got a chance to ride with a few of you at Joes last September. Looking forward to seeing some of your local favorite trails. I am trailering over from Murfreesboro TN and would be happy to pitch in with an egg breakfast Saturday or Sunday morning. Anybody got some swine to fry up?
