    Kind of a vague question, but I have the GL Siskiyou panniers but I don't think that is what your asking, your question makes me think you are looking for one of the horseshoe type bags. That said I also have a Mosko R40 if you want to try that on. Let me know.

    Long ride on a chilly day. Despite the sun, the wind was biting.

    The funny thing is that I know that, I used to have a boat.

    Now I have a different boat and probably many more headaches.

    snowMobile or motorcycle? There are several different ways to go. The distance from the visitor center to Lochsa Lodge approximately 20 miles on the back road. If you are coming from Highway 12 Elk Meadows Rd. takes about 45 minutes to get to the visitor center. From the Meadows turnoff to Lochsa I would figure proximally an hour and 1/2

    About an hour to visitor center via Elk Meadows. Another hour and a half spits you out on Hwy 12 just uphill from the Lodge.

    Whatcha planning? :ear
