Hey V - I'm not really sure what I'm going to do, maybe a new unit or another model? The biggest issue is that cheesy power cord, I think it would've been better to stick w/batteries for that Oregon. :-

Nitrous - That company was Zagg.com, lifetime warranty! :up:

Have you guys thought about the possible temps in August ? Could be over 100° Hope we plan on staying real high. 7k feet should be just about right.

Pop Tarts ROCK......

Zagg screen savers are very good as well.

I've got a 100oz. bladder in my back pack. As long as I can keep it filled w/ice, I'll be O.K. if we get another heat wave like last week. But after we get out of Isabella, the altitude should make things bearable for sure.

And by then we've all become accustomed to the heat.

Just ride in you swim shorts. :)

Does anyone have a Wolfman or Giant Loop saddlebag I could borrow for this ride ? I hate to buy something that I may never use again. This is my 1st overnighter on the bike. If I break it I will buy it, or pay to have it repaired. :up:

Hey Dusty - I seem to recall that Russo used some really inexpensive Tourmaster panniers that he tossed over the back of his seat - I remember those worked pretty good on one of our trips. If you get those, or even the Giantloops, and you decide to sell them later on - it should be really easy. :up:

This is the one I have for my bike. Durable and comes with a waterproof cover. Enough to pack your heavy stuff and keep the lightweight things in your backpack.

my bag. I also cut off the tank tabs.
and there's this one that gives you a little more room.

Both at Cycle Gear (online anyway. I don't know what they have in the store.)

John: Thanks for the info on the bags. The problem with the bags is I dont have a rack on my bike. I went ahead and bit the bullet & purchased one of these just a bit ago. http://www.giantloopmoto.com/products/coyote-saddlebag Cha Ching !! :eek: The wife told me to :) :banana:

Good news: The FS ranger I originally tried to contact finally returned my call today. Told him we were on street legal bikes w/S.A.'s. He was very co-operative. EVERYTHING is open. Piute Mt. road has been graded and is fully open. All the trails through the Greenhorns are open as well..I'm stocking up on Pop Tarts :banana:

"Ice Cream Parlor"

Found out that they don't pack well through the rough stuff. And when you open up the package it's a pile of crumbs. Lara bars, OTOH.....

Maybe you could suspend them in a light-weight, viscous gel, encased in titanium alloy and they will survive the trip. :D

I just turned on the L.A. news. Fires in Tehachipi and Kernville. We're screwed again, Boys and Girls...
