California Lost Fender Bag near Rosamond

Recommended Posts

I was on a group dual sport ride near Rosamond Friday (2-3-12), between Dawn Road and Backus Road, west of Hwy 14, and lost my front fender bag. It's a Moose Dual Sport bag, with a 21" tube, 24, 27, and 12/13 mm Moton Pro Combo tire iron/axle wrenche,s a Second Wind CO2 inflator/pump and a half dozen CO2 cartridges, a moton pro (I think) multi-tool, a patch kit, and I'm not sure what else. If anyone riding out that way finds it, I'd sure appreciate a call. I would show my appreciation with a "Jackson" or two when I came to p[ick up the bag...

Not that I found it, and I would give it back, but dam birdy, that sure is alot of shit for a front fender bag. I hope you do get it back. I lost one a long time ago, never did find it or get it back. I went with the Ogio vest and it works perfect.

I cut notches in the fender for each hook so they stay put and the bag won't migrate down the fender.

I've tried notches as well but they didn't seem to be the complete answer. Now I drill a small hole in the fender and use a zip-ty to hold the hook in place. It threads through where the stap connects. I have riden throusands of miles with this set-up and never had the bag come loose.

Ya...it is a bunch of stuff...but the Dual Sport bag is a bit bigger than a normal fender bag, and holds it all with room to spare. Does make the loss a bit more expensive, though, the more stuff you have in there.

I guess I'm hoping that karma really works...

no help finding your front fender bag

But every front fender bag type that I have seen falls off eventually except this one which never falls off

I have the Dirt Bike Gear large fender bag on the back of my 426...works great. I swap (or swapped?) the front bag between the 426 and the 250 pinger I picked up a couple of months ago...

You can bt I will be doing this when I replace this bag...thanks for the tip

I ran over it. Half the tools were lost and I didn't have room for the other half. I'm sorry. :smirk:

Why bother with this kind of crap?

Oh...right...because you think you're pretty funny...maybe you should spend your time doing standup at the Laugh Factory instead of wasting ours...

I seem to be lucky at collecting welding helmets these past few years on the fwy. I think Im up to 5 now, all good auto darkening ones.

Welders hang them by their straps in the trucks, and they dont hold up and break

Agreed. Best you can get. Those things NEVER fall off. My son can tactically get ANY front fender bag to come off within about 2 hours. Not that one. :-)

Sorry you no find bag birdy.

I have a Karma story though. Sunday a couple of buddies met up for a ride across the mountain. Nice day for a ride to Toms Farm for food. On the way back up the mountain Ricky Racer decided to pass and grab a fist full of throttle sparying dust and rocks all over me and one of my buddies, (what an azz) well, he did a yard sale at the top of the hill and usually I would stop to see if he was ok, not this time..You get what you deserve. Ride alone over your head and bam....Next thing you know..Should have roosted him back but I was nice to just ignore his pain....

I probably would have stopped to chew him out for the spray job he did on me. Then, depending on his attitude now, I would have either moved on or lent a hand with some more lecturing along the way. Maybe he didn't know how much of an azz he was.

Do you realize the odds of getting it back? In 40 years, I have seen quite a few things on the trail including tool bags. I have also spent alot of time going from camp ground to camp ground and posting ads everywhere trying to find the owner to no avail. What I'm trying to say is that placing a posting to get it back is a good idea but GOOD LUCK with someone actually getting it back to you. I once found a camera in the middle of an intersection full of photo's. I posted ads and after a year, no one responded. There were all kinds of baby and family get together photo's in it and I felt that it should go back to the family. Someone's unreplaceable family good times were in it. I was finally going to erase the pictures and use the camera and was going through it and recognized a store that was in one of them. I went to the houses across from the store and luckily found the owners. Without the pictures I never would have. If you don't put somekind of identifying information in your stuff, the chances of getting back from way out in the woods or desert are slim................

Good Luck!

Of course I realize the odds of getting it back are somewhere less than the odds of finding a needle in a stack of needles in a hay stack, but if you don't ask, the answer is always "No". I have a business card, a copy of my CDL, proof of insurance, and registration in the bag, so there is ample opportunity for anyone who finds the bag to contact me, but a little more spreading the word never hurts. Even if someone does find it, and finds the contact info, I would bet that only a select few would bother to find me and return the swag. Dirt bikers, for the most part, are an honest lot, but there are lots more people that recreate in that area (shooters, hunters, quad-tards, mountain bikers, hikers, equestrians, jeepers, etc) who might not go through the trouble.

As far as being bitter or in denial, not at all. I don't expect to get the bag back, and in fact have already replaced the bag and contents. Just part of the cost of riding off road. I don't know you (Vidarapido), have never ridden with you, exchanged posts with you, or even bothered to comment on your posts. Why you would choose to be a smart-ass in a situation like this is completely beyond me. You have no knowledge of the situation, no knowledge of me or my riding partners, and, quite honestly, unless you ride in the Rosamond area of So Cal, you really have no dog in the hunt. If you overheard a conversation about this in a bar, would you butt in with a smart-asstic, no value added comment like your first post in this thread?

You don't really want to know the answer to that - do you? :smirk:
