    Still learning and have a questions


    What canopy do you use that is easy to setup by 1 person. Usually i have a friend or wife with me but this weekend at cannan i have non and i have never ridden with Penguin either.
    i have a canopy that even me and wife have a tough time with plus, i took from the rv and we are heading to camping for a week i was told not to break it ....

    I started with some leather gear, then moved to a tecknic chicane 2 pc which needed a zipper buddy and was a bit snug. Now i picked up a 1 size bigger 1 pc. i have like do a dance to get into but getting out is still very questionable as all my trails were funny and in dry conditions. What is the trick here for 1pc suits. i do not want to go a size bigger as this is big enough once inside.

    how big is cannan from parking spot to the main place where classes are?.

    how far is this river..if hot i need to get in with my leather as i cannot get out any way.?


    I am staying at a place called stage coach inn like 5 minutes from the road and its named after inn from horror movies .

    **if you are there come and make a friend. i am the large indian on a tiny sv650

    You won't have to set up or take down the canopy solo, if people don't jump in to help, feel free to ping people wandering by. For the most part everyone is friendly and has been in the same boat.

    On the suit, yeah, you have to do a little dance to get in and out, welcome to leathers. Underarmor slides in and out the suit better than bare skin (especially if wet) or regular clothes. As you wear it more, it'll mold to fit better, and you'll figure out when to hop vs when to twist, etc to get it on and off quicker. For me, legs in first, pull up to my waist, then arm, arm, zip.

    You'll definitely want something to wear under the suit. Compression gear of any sort really. Underarmor is great, there's budget brands out there as well. I have underarmor "pants" and I wear a shirt I use for hunting made of a similar material.

    You'll want basketball/soccer type shorts over the "pants" unless you like being in your underwear.

    I don't work for them, but I will say Eazy-up brand canopies seem to hold up better than the generic brands. Mine is like 8 years old. I've seen new generics get mangled in a single weekend over and over again.

    And they are truly "easy" to put up and down by myself.

    Eurmax brand is the bees knees. Made way better, sturdier, and you can leave the canopy on it when you fold it up into the roller bag with solid bottom. The wife just got me one for papa's day and I couldn't be happier.

    It's a 1 person affair.

    If you REALLY want to drop some coin, get the "commercial" version with the octagonal legs. It would take a hurricane to break those things. Impressive.
