I got them HiVuz bags, I swear you can pack the whole house and bring the garage to.
I look forward to your ride report!!!
Just saw those bags. I have had the same ones on my DR for a couple years now. I never take them off. I routed the Velcro straps under the seat now.
That is a good Idea I may do that, I had a problem with them sliding around and to one side. Although it may have been user error in weighting one down heavier than the other. I had to use the Velcro on top and beneath the luggage rack to get it to stay. it was kind of a Pain but they did the job just fine.
waiting on that RR
What brand are your luggage racks? They seem to fit nice and close to the bike. Do you like them?
"...and meet some of the locals who were always more than happy to help. These interactions became the highlight of my trip and I will remember them for years to come".
The ART of adventure has less to do with equipment and more to do, I find, with the referenced interactions. You found it. Well done. Enjoyed your RR and pics. Next adventure?
Precision Motorcycle Racks, I got them off of amazon. They are nice for soft luggage and if you happen to lay it down it can provide some level of rigidity.
Thanks for reading!! Glad you enjoyed it, Next Adventure Aug 17th-19th
I went with these since the top rack has mounting adapters for ROTPAX which is a must when you only have a 2 gallon tank.
I have the Acerbis 3.7 on my 250L. My range is about 260 I guess. Never ran it further then 210 and still had about half a tank. Thanks for posting your ride and the rack info. I enjoyed reading about it.
Thanks for reading, I like to write things down or I will forget it because I have such a bad memory.
A bigger tank is the next mod on my list!! thanks for posting the pic, it doesn't look much different from the stock tank which is nice. Can you still use the fuel guage? or just the odometer?
Did some of these roads last year. It was a blast! Subscribed!
Acerbis did a great job fitting the larger tank to the bike to still being able to use the stock plastic pieces on the tank. Plus the fuel gauge still works.
I enjoyed this report a great deal. Being a lower New Englander, this is a type of route I could be able to get away on without a whole heck of a lot of trouble. I go through Maine fairly regularly to get up to PEI. A larger tank is something most people want, I've got just above 5 gal on my machine, but when I go on a trip I bring somewhere between 1.5 and 6 liters in back up bottles, and so far I think for cost/benefit, thats where I'd stay. By all means I support any type of modification a rider wants to make to their machine for their comfort and preference.
Ultimately I just wanted to chime in b/c i enjoyed the read.
Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Thank you for posting your thoughts. I am planning to do this route every year!! I don't have any GPX files or a planned route I just go where the roads lead me and have some sort of plan of where I want to stay the night. I may even leave my GPS at home this summer and just use a Gazzette. I love the freedom I have on my CRF. Definatley getting a bigger tank for next year.
Great trip and report. I live in the Sugarloaf area and hope to have some similar rides this coming summer!
Great shots of a beautiful countryside. I like how the bike is set up.
