Cortech Super 2.0 Saddlebags - RevZilla

What do you think of this?
I am planning to do a 5 day trip to Yosomite and Death Valley on the routes that I find from Pashnit.

I will probably be tenting so I need to cary a tent' sleeping bag and a mat other then my personal stuff which I think they won't be much=)
First off: I want to go! Went there once in a Dodge Durango and spent 1/2 the day with my head sticking out the window like a dog trying to see. That's a really cool place! What's the weather going to be like?

I was looking at bags before I got the ok from the wife for the tail bag. She thought a tail bag would be in her way but it has worked out fine. You'll have more space in saddlebags and I liked the looks of these: Sport Panniers (Standard)- Universal Expandable luggage for sport bikes Saddlemen's e
They come in two sizes and are semi-ridged. But any of the bags hang over your plastic and will rub. I was going to build a rack system off the rear pegs, then hang the bags from rack to get rid of the straps over the seat. If you're going to carry that much stuff you're going to have to go with saddlebags and not just a tail bag. Maybe you need both.

I think the weather is qoing to be around 65-70 during day time and I wonder how much it will drop at night time... There is nothing that a little fire and a scotch could not solve ahaha=) Seriously, it might be cold, I will buy some pants and different kind of gloves just for this trip. A sleeping bag, a mat and a tent... thats all I need. I do not plan to carry a lot of stuff, those bags are actually just to put the tent, mat and bag on top of it and fix them with some cords...

I willl be working on the route that I plan to do, I will post the map here so that we can discuss...

Tenting is not a must but I really prefer to do so... If it gets really cold, I am also ok to crash to Best Western or any kind of motel...

65 can get you cold. We rode today it was about 55 degrees. We both wear Gerbing heated jackets so it was still fine to ride. I've done as low as 27 degrees with the jacket on high and another coat over it. Take pictures!
