I thought you would say the little bear thing :) .

You mean Boofle? He is charge of navigation - of course he is essential, it goes without saying... :lol: :lol: :lol:

LIke the idea of the Clickstand and as Warren suggests using it as a tarp pole too.

What about using more modern alloy skinnier tent poles with the bungestyle cord attaching them together.

The weight of a loaded tourer may indeed be too much for these but i guess its all in the experimenting. Leave it with me, i work thorough...but slow.

My word that is a lot of question marks Ronk.!!

I was furthering the discussion from a previous post within this topic about MAKING a click stand. I hope this makes more sense to you.

How do you find your Clickstand on a loaded tourer? Does it have multiple uses when touring?

Well I was confused by your question about "using more modern alloy skinnier tent poles with the bungestyle cord attaching them together."

After all, that describes exactly what a clickstand is.

Works perfectly when the bike is loaded. And it's very handy for getting snakes out of the tent. :) :) :)
