    PS, did the Wife make you a little cake to bring along so you can celebrate your 'special' day?
    Take care my Friend.........

    Looking at your pic, I see you have a front rack as well, but everything loaded on the rear rack. (Many of the loaded TW pix I see here make me think a little throttle and you'd be doing a wheelie!). Any reason your did not balance things out more and put some stuff on the front rack?

    Really the front rack is pretty useless. Everything blocks the headlight. That being said I do sometimes carry smaller stuff up there. ie: extra tubes, and a first aid kit that is pretty flat. As far as the load goes we are not going up any steep hills this time so I'm not to worried. You can look at my photobucket pics and see we loaded this several times. But I will also say if you are not carefull, yes you could find your self upside down.

    Have a nice trip, and safe riding !!!



    The loading looks great, except the ALOT.

    Wonder if TW could handle without big problems; any tire pressure change is needed ??

    Hey busy, after seeing what ronnydogs' TW hauls around i think hauling some sleeping bags and tents should be a breeze for any TW!

    What kind of storage box are you using and how is the bag connected to the side? This looks like a fairly simple effective setup.
