Talking Hurricane ridge ride 7/7

Met some cool old guys riding st4s on the ferry. They loved the RC and we decided to ride the day away!

Those are some outstanding pictures TD. Well done.

I see both the Ducati's running the windscreen lip.
I like that rear pack on the grey Duc.

I never liked bags on any bike I had. A back pack is more than enough to fit 3-4 t-shirts and a few other stuff in it. It has 2 major and another 3 smaller compartments that I can even put in my laptop in (sucrificing on clothes though) and be ok with everything I need.
A couple of times when I needed to carry a camping tent, I just strapped it outside the back pack horizontally and although it was too much, I rode the bike just fine. No extreme riding but once I got to the camping site and installed the tent, I was free again.
I hate to load the RC like a mule.....especially the tank bag is very annoying in cornering!
The back pack makes an every 60-70 miles stop, necessary but at that time I can use a smoke so i would stop anyway

Looks like the Kingston ferry terminal? Did you do the whole 101 loop through Forks and Aberdeen, or just out to the ridge? The loop is worth it, lots of fun out that way.




I'm always right.

I've always hated riding with a backpack. It wears you out so much faster than you would think. I used to do it everyday I rode in college, until one day I rode without it and couldn't believe the difference (I hadn't had a ride other than commuting in over a year). I avoid backpacks like the plague now. Another thing to consider is that you and your stuff in your bag are much safer in a get-off if you aren't attached.

I spent a fair amount of time considering that on my last major ride.

Same her on all you just said. I had a rediculous big backpack last year for Hwy. 36, and swore that next year I'd try tank bag and a lot less stuff. This year I used a light camelback and tankbag. Still don't like anything hanging on my back, and the tankbag is just not ideal, gets in the way sometimes. Found myself smashing it down constantly. That's why I want to try a tail pack.

If it doesn't fit in the tail section....it doesn't go.


Doing a little laundry while in the hot tub relaxing never hurt anyone....


Nice pictures btw
