Just a standard Magellen on a bar mount. I'll have to put it in a bag if it rains... but it will work.

I was checking out this page:

http://www.visi.com/~dalebor/index.html#contents

And he about sums up what I like to do on my bike trips...

"My style of touring is to ride the motorcycle, period. I don't much care where I go or what I see as long as I'm riding. Sure, I try to go different places and see different things. I prefer good twisties and nice scenery just like everyone else but I'm there to ride and that takes first priority. I don't generally stop for anything but gas, food, or a cigarette. What's important is that I'm on the bike moving down the road. If I'm not doing that I'm wasting my time. For you newbies, this is not the way most people ride.

The second characteristic of my style is that I hate crowds. This means that I avoid large cities and tourist areas like the plague. This is also one of the reasons that I don't tour out east too much, too many people and towns. My destination is the road. It took me about ten years of touring to realize that this is really what I liked about touring (I'm a bit slow in the thinking department sometimes) but now that I know, it makes everything much easier.

People ask me all the time "Where are you going on your next trip?" The real answer is something like "West, but I'm not sure, maybe Newfoundland" (I live in Minneapolis). For reasons that I don't really understand this answer is unacceptable to most people. It seems perfectly sensible to me. They want to hear "Vancouver" or "New Mexico" or something like that so that's what I tell them. The real answer is still "West, maybe, I'll know for sure when I get back."

Occasionally in gas stations or restaurants along the way someone will ask me about my bike and then ask where I'm going. The answer is "That way (pointing in the proper direction) because I see a cool mountain over there and from the map it looks like there may be some nice twisties."
