    Ready for a few days in Mai Sot, WHAT A SHIT HOUSE, great roads, really great but the place was a toilet. No Gin, the bars did not sell Gin ? Uncivilized barbarians. Bike performed well. Note the modification to the rear rack, only three mounting points now due to the owners stupidity of fitting a high exhaust, the rack it however a something and Becker and it is very solid, got to love those Germans.

    Loaded up for the BRP to TN-MOA rally last June. Kinda hard to see, but there is a red collapsable cooler on the G650GS rack. We made lunch each morning and just stopped and snacked instead of getting off the BRP. The tank panniers worked better on the side case than on either tank. The Held dry bag worked well as a back rest. After we finished the Skyline Drive and BRP, we stopped by a UPS store and shipped home the cooler weather gear. Not shown, Lewis and Clark compression bags were great for keeping clothes dry and maxing space and keeping dirty clothes separate.

    Nice run of pics. I noticed in most you have a sheepskin seat cover. Care to comment or share a possible link of where you got it? Looking for a way to save my backside.

    Not sure about LodiRider, but I got mine at AlaskaLeather.com.
    I used it a lot until I got a Russell saddle, then not so much.
    I still use it in cold weather riding.
    Good product and service.
    Just an FYI.

    Fernweh: Homesick for a place you've never been. At least I know the name for it now.

    Stopped for a break on a lonely backroad in WV. This was taken about 80 miles into a 3 month live-off-the-bike trip thru VA, WV, and OH.
