Riggerman - you're giving PMB a run for his money in the photo department...nicely done...all!

Pretty well known Rigger kicks my photographic ass on a regular basis. Super talented.

Is that Oracle running a luggage frame?

Yes, sir. Globtrottin rack with Moose bags. The rack is very sturdy. PMB is running one as well.

Interesting Camp Gear review. Da, Rigger definitely gets the minimalist award. Are you warm blooded? 
A Range of saddle bags has evolved. Once the Giant Loop horse shoe design was the way to go. Now we see racks and hanging bags. The racks I have seen weigh 12lbs. Do you two agree on the weight?

In my opinion, a tent can be a life saver if it rains overnight.

Also, the team is sporting some nice travel jackets. That is another tough packing choice. You pretty much need to wear it the whole time. What do you think guys?

It’s a great area, I’d like to go back next year and set up a base camp and then do day rides and explore all the different areas. There are always trails that make you think, I wonder where that goes?

The rack is fairly heavy. But that is a worthy trade-off for a sturdy rack; a necessity for these types of conditions. When I got home, I did find a broken weld on a support beam. The rack was still very solid. I've seen other racks fail in one spot and be totally worthless, in fact, less than worthless. The key to the extra weight is adjusting sag appropriately prior to leaving. The guys will tell you I'm always reminding them to adjust their sag. Mikey777 will tell you the consequences if you don't.

Rigga carried a tent and was fully prepared. For some reason he loves sleeping out in the open...even in sub 30 degree weather. 

As far as jackets, yes, having a water proof jacket is a must. And coming up with a layering system that works for you is a must. I've tried many different options and have a closet full of riding gear to prove it. I have it figured out for me now. If I need to shed the jacket, I have an extra set of rok straps that are set up on my rear bag to strap the jacket down. Works well for me.
