    Default Only kinda Gay

    I like to go on long rides and don't really have to many places other than the bars to strap things down. So I came up with this idea, I need to re-wrap the tent but you can get the drift..or maybe not.

    that's a good idea if you don't want to run a big-ass sissy bar. does it feel unbalanced when you're riding?

    Well like I said " once I roll my tent better" there is 3" from the chain the hook , If the chain hits the hook I've got bigger problems.

    Chain and back tire. I've seen and heard horror stories about guys doing things like that and getting them sucked in. Make sure everything is rolled tight and strapped real good.

    Don't know I put it on about 10 min ago, Probably fix tent and ride this weekend to test it out. Can't be any worst than having all that crap, back pack and tool bag strapped to the bars/forks.

    I dig it.

    You can even make up some kinda saddlebag deal that you could carry for everyday stuff. Something with some sleeves on the outside to slide over the uprights.

    Cool shit man! I think you should start like a "campin" thread with this. A place to post exactly this sort of thing plus other tricks/ niknaks what ever's good for campin on a bike with no room to pack stuff. Just a thought. Might be kinda gay.

    I was just looking at my back fender trying to figure out how to make a rack to haul my tool/lunch cooler to work without it strangling me on the first stand up dismount if I tried to just strap it around my chest/neck...this idea has potential...as long as it doesn't kill ground clearance...my ride to work has some serious potholes,(friend of mine lost an axle on his Subie....thanks for the idea.

    Default hmmm...

    I could see your potential "tent in the tire" problems solved with a nice chunk of leather slung between those meathooks.

    whitehorse gear sells compact tents and also compression bags that would help you get that tent under control

    fuck yeah man. I was actually thinking of something similar to mount on to stash my skateboard. I dont want a big sissy bar or anything and dont want to just sit on it either. that rig looks perfect.
