Re: New to TWT

Thanks everyone for the welcomes and the advice. I definitely can understand the need for quality gear. I just ordered the Forma Adventure boots, based on ratings and reviews, and should have them in next week so I can break them in before the trip. I have the ICON RAIDEN DKR adventure riding gear, top and bottom, so I'm good on waterproof gear. I'm going to bring a waterproof insulated set of gloves and my sand 3's with glove liners, so pretty much anything that gets thrown at me I should be good. I'm pretty proficient in traveling( I've done a lot of cross country road trips) but am just sort of New to packing this light. I'm going to try to use a camping hammock on this upcoming trip to Sturgis and Colorado and see how that goes. I may go back to tents, but I like the idea of packable, light, and super quick set up that a hammock and rain fly affords. It shouldn't be too cold either, and I have a good compact low temp sleeping bag to use in the hammock.

Sounds great! I'm down whenever, but I do work during the week, so weekends are easier. Shoot me a message on here if you want to plan something. I look forward to it.

Re: New to TWT

Welcome aboard. I live in SW austin, between me and my roommate we have usually anywhere from 8-10 bikes at any given time.

I ride a Scout (formerly, a Z1000 that like you said didn't even feel like it was moving until about 100 and I drove it way too fast everywhere), but I certainly like to open it up it now and then also. Roommate has a concours14, also not exactly a slouch. If you want to go for a rip after work some time, let me know.
