So long as it isn't pouring when I wake up on saturday, I'll be there.

Ormand were there more hydrapaks for that price? I just bought a cheap walmart one for $20, but that's a steal!

meh, I'm not going to do all the work to return mine and get that one... I'm lazy.

I just called CycleGear SW and SE and they don't have anymore - I bought the last one Unfortunately, you can't order one at the store...it's an item "we received from corporate", whatever that means. I am going to take a stab that it's probably an older or discontinued model....I got insanely lucky Too late now but if you goto the website, they have one for $19.99 that I was planning on buying if they had it in stock.

FWIW, I was told that all Hydrapaks will be on a big sale next week...$80 units will be about $40 if you can wait.

Hey all I've been busy this week so I haven't had much time to post. still working on getting the bike back together, but it should be done tomorrow. I'm flexable when it comes to the lodging. I'll be good wherever I can get a room with well trained bugs or even better yet one without bugs. so I don't have to wear a flea collar like Bevo.

How do we dress for hot weather riding? I was going to wear mesh jacket if the temp is around 80-90 degrees, but seem like it's gonna be 100+ degrees in the afternoon. So, should I wear leather instead to insulate my body from excessive heat or mesh for fast evaporate. What do you pick?

ok I'm back on a real computer I hate trying to post up from a smartass phone. Does anyone have a 32gb sd card that I can borrow? Until I can get it back home and copied over to my harddrive. I'll be riding with the gopro. And I only have one 32gb. I'll probably fill that up on the first day. If anyone does I'll give it back full of vid from the trip.

If its over 72.5 F, Im wearing a tank top, shorts, flip flops, finger less gloves, and putting my helmet on the helmet lock.

And before yall ask, I will be wearing sunscreen.....

Ormand, as Bevo said, the hydration pack should be work outside of the jacket. Adjust it while seated on the motorcycle with hands on bars.
