Gobium - this looks pretty cool. Is this going on the bike that is getting the oil cooler? When and where is your Iron but ride to?

Never mind the oil cooler question - I saw the videos on your youtube prior to the posts on here.

Cool, I am fitting an oil pressure gauge(0-15psi) this week on my bike. I hope to see some kind of write up on your trip if you think about doing one. Thanks again for all your posts and videos. They are extremely educational.

Periodically I think about mounting a old school fram bypass filter like you used to see in late 40s/ early 50's Chevys. For full day riding it would give you extra capacity and extra filtration. In your sentiment my bike my modifications.

Thanks for the silicone treatment video. I came across something like this some time back while doing my camping gear research, the guy was making "silnylon" by mixing silicone caulk and mineral spirits in the 5 gal. buckets and then treating entire nylon sheets by submersion which he then used to make waterproof tents. I was hesitant to try it at that scale, but seeing how easily it brushes on the way you did it, I think it's time to treat some of my gear.

I also like what you did with the pop-up. I hope when you've gotten the toe box thing figured out you'll do a video of the full set up and tear down.

Just got back last night from my FL to Vegas trip that was supposed to be done on my Ural. Though the reason I did not take the Ural is because I had much bigger plans for its restoration than I had time to execute in the short time I had to prepare.

Anyway, after resorting to plan D (buying a 22 year old motorcycle on Craigslist as cheap as possible a week before I need to leave that is 700 miles away from me and then riding it to Vegas and back), I can say I am anxiously waiting for you to complete and test this out. During my trip, I took camping gear and only ended up camping 1 day out of 18 days gone (5 days in Vegas for work). That 1 day I camped was still setting up after dark using a headlamp. Over the days and about 6500 miles of riding, I thought how awesome it would be to have something like this for the next time I actually get to take a trip on the Ural. Then I get back and see you working on it. :clap:

My friends that are retired say I go too far each day and that I need to slow down and not ride so many miles. Unfortunately, I have time constraints to work with and lofty goals. So that means riding from sun up until sun down many days to get me far enough away from FL to the places I want to spend more time.

On the way home, there was a guy with a Goldwing that had a small tear drop with a honda generator outside it taking a rest at a rest stop. After already riding for 12 hours I wished I had a place to lay down for a while since I still had 8 hours of riding to do to get home.

The route ridden (Would have not done so much Interstate if I were on the Ural):

What is the width of the sleeping area?

While I had good luck using a phone app to find cheap motels that were also clean, it would be nicer to save the $40-50 per night and be able to use it to travel more. I have about $400 in lodging expenses I could have saved. Though I probably would have still stayed in the hotel on the super high winds nights. One night, it was so windy it got up under the air shock fill cover and ripped it right off the bike.

Awesome work!
