on this next trip i might run the RS instead of the 8000 riot kit, its usually $7-10 better over a 200klm distance.Don't worry about the wallet... worry about GAS. 1600 mile saddlebag loop last year, I ran out two days in a row (up to Chibougamau and back down). Thank goodness for the Skidoo 900T's getting 16+ mpg or I may STILL be there.
... they came back for me with more gas.
If you go (and you should) - I'd avoid that loop up there.
