    I don't know anyone with the sewing skills to put one together, but if you ever have someone produce a few of these please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    It'll cost you big to get the same seamstress to make one of those bags, now that she realizes how much work it is making the first one. If you have home improvement skills, there may be motivation for a trade.....

    Or a big wad of cash. More than you would probably spend on a couple of sets factory made stuff. And all this with no warranty!

    PM me if you want one really bad. You'll have to bribe me to ask my mom if she'll make another one, and then bribe her to get her to do it. Dad knows better than to ask again, so I'm your only chance.

    Based on conversations with my sewing person there won't be any more of these made unless someon is willing to spend some multiple of what a set of dirtbags and brackets cost.

    I took that to mean that she was not too interested in making them.:D

    Have you seen this guy's work? Great stuff done fast. I have no financial or personal interest, just sharing.

    That stuff looks good. If anyone is interested in getting a quote on a bag like mine I could send better pics and dimensions to this vendor.

    I had missed this report the first time around and was delighted to just spend the last 90 minutes enjoying it! Man, I gotta get outta Baja and get over there sometime. Thanks much for taking the time to share! :freaky

    Nice video Rick. I watched it with my 5 year old. He says he's ready to go but he thinks we should bring mom and big brother with.
