I didn’t think I would be able to attend the Golden Eagle aka Theilman trail ride this weekend. They only do the ride twice a year and the area is normally off limits to motorcycles. It is the best riding in Minnesota.
My trailer plans fell through at the last minute. Fortunately, a friend had room in trailer for my WR250R! Thanks!!
This is what I packed for riding gear and clothes:
food and toiletries:
tent and sleeping gear:
and of course electronics:
No T2i on this trip as it will be too dusty and dirty. The GoProHD will be fine, and my little Pentax will cover the rest. I see a crash compilation in my future…
All of the above gear fit into my gear bag:
I put the two one gallon jugs of water in for size. It’s a HUGE bag.
The bike is all gassed up and ready to go. I am also bringing an extra 2.5 gallons. There is about 45 miles of trail where we are going, so 4.5 gallons will be more than enough.
On a different note, I have been overly busy this spring and am way behind in writing my blog and reading others. Sorry! No internet this weekend, so I am going to get further behind. I hope to be caught up soon.
