They are good, and very durable. I actually sit on it sometimes. I'm on my second one. First was stolen in Mexico.JT, This looks great. How do you carry it to distribute the weight?
If I don't have additional luggage I just strap it to the back of my seat on my 450EXC. I use the same mounting points I use for my soft luggage. Basically, they consist of a couple of sturdy D rings held in place with a heavy duty hose clamp. They've held up perfectly on several adventures.
I made a cover for the first one. I'm making another but with some additional straps sewn in so I can attach things like a small tool kit or whatever to it.
Without the cover, there are small grommets already installed. I tied loops of para cord in those and ran a tie-down strap through them. At the back I ran the strap through a couple of carabiners hooked to the fender. Worked great.
Make sure you don't fill it up all the way and purge it when needed. I usually don't put more than a gallon in it. The second picture was after a couple of hours out in Big Bend last month just before I purged it again.
I might be able to help you guys out...... (might).Sounds good! I will enjoy the ride on Fri, but would be great to save the tires for Arkansas!
Thank you so much! I am sending you and Goyko a PM. Much appreciated!I might be able to help you guys out...... (might).
I've been trying to get this buddy of mine into dual sport and I think he might go on this trip, BUT if he dosn't... I would be happy to swing over from east TX or meet you half way and give you guys a ride. The big deal is my trailer only holds 3 bikes . So you see if I have 4, it's a no go. P.M. me and we'll talk.
You must be a very light sleeper. Nothing bothers me when I am asleep. I've stayed there twice this spring.I stayed here 3 years ago and said I'll never stay here again. It's 50 yards from the train track and the trains come by about every 2 hours..
Got a hotel after the 2nd night.
I am a light sleeper, and the trains are frequent--and close!I stayed here 3 years ago and said I'll never stay here again. It's 50 yards from the train track and the trains come by about every 2 hours..
Got a hotel after the 2nd night.
I won't get there until Friday, but will be at the same hotel as you two. I believe Camilo and Nadeem are there too. So maybe Sunday dinner?Who's going to be in Clarksville Thursday evening?
Daniel and I should be arriving around 4-5pm. We're going to be riding my GS in the area on Friday. Friday evening, we'll make our way to toward Kingston on Hwy 21 to Wildernessrider's property to ride dirt bikes Saturday and Sunday.
I was just thinking we might hook up for dinner with anyone that might be in town.
We'll be back in town again on Sunday evening.
Both nights we are staying at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel on the West end of town.
OK, y'all might think this is funny, I do .... So right around May 1 (a little late in the evening, about 7 or 8) I call Sunset and said " I'm with the motorcycle rally, Blah Blah Blah and I need a room for 4 nights starting Thursday." The man on the other end says "no problem, can I get your # and call you back tomorrow?" ...ok?...sure.? So I wait for a phone call.... 2 days go by and I call back, "Hi I called about a room for 4 nights a couple of days ago?" same guy says "Sure Sure, my wife is taking care of these (bookings) and shes at a kids ball game right now, can she call you back after 7? ...."sure.?" So I wait. No calls and I get busy the next 3 or 4 days until it dawns on me, I haven't confirmed my rooms! So I call back.... "Hi I'm the guy thats waiting on a call to book my room?" Same guy say's "yes, yes, I told you my wife will call you, she has your #, dont worry." .......ok!?!? (hang up). So I let a week, or more, go by. Called last night....He says, "I told you, you have a room, no problem." "I have a room? I thought you were going to call my back?" "Oh no you have a room, no worry's."
So if I show up Thursday night and dont have a room I'm not going to be happy!
