    Camping suggestions

    I'm not a fan of campgrounds, preferring more genuinely off-the-beaten path camping. Will someone suggest a good place for camping, preferably one with a little off-roading (I'm on a GS) that is...

    Thanks, for the replies, folks. I will look into the Hiedenaus. A note to all you folks getting ready to change the front tire on your GS: A 23mm allen wrench is very hard to come by!

    I appreciate this thread. I've dealt with cupping in the past, but I'm keeping 40-41psi in the front and hope to avoid it on my latest Metzler. The bike has 30k+. What is the root cause of cupping?
