Adirondacks Trip 2014

Last weekend Tom, Jake, Dan, Andrew, Apor, Justin, Kevin, Kevin and myself all met up in Watkins Glen, NY for a weekend of riding. After a couple of wet hours on 476 the weather cleared and was perfect for the rest of the trip. Big thanks to Tom for organizing this one.

    I gave my FZ6 a face lift this summer by grinding the paint off the tank and swapping out the headlight for a round one.

    Nice photos. Trip looks like it was a good time.

    What bivy sac is that? I’m not familiar with them. Any info?

    A Bivvy Bag is a breathable, waterproof bag that goes over your sleeping bag. It’s used in place of a tent. That one is the Army issue Modular Sleep System: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_Sleep_System.

    When the Army switched to the pixellated camouflage pattern all the older style ones became surplus. It’s bulky and heavy by backpacking standards, but pretty cheap considering it replaces a tent and sleeping bag. I leave my air mattress in between the sleeping bag and bivvy sack, then roll it all up together. I got mine used but basically new a couple years ago for about $75 I think.
