What kind of bags are you guys using to haul all the tools etc.? Anyone make a good size front fender bag? Used to have a Moose one but it was too small.

I carry my tools in my backpack in a tool roll but between the tools, water, food, layers, etc it's too much on my back and I end up sore at the end of the day. Wolfman makes some cool products. My friend has the E-12 bags and they seem really well made. If you want something smaller they have the "day tripper" bags now: http://www.wolfmanlu...addle_Bags.html I think these would be a good way to carry tools, spares, etc and take some of that weight off your back or front fender.

Thanks everyone! I read up on what you all said, and I packed accordingly. Just finished the trip, and to true WR style, I never even missed a beat (even after dropping my bike in deep water.

Pic of me straight after dropping my bike in a slippery crossing. Started first time (PHEW!)

Ride on WR!
