I'm going to post a query again, now that I have an idea of what I need. I just got a D7000 + 18-105 on Black Friday sale. I am having a bit of trouble finding a tripod that fits these needs. Thanks very much for your help (and feel free to correct any misconceptions I have):

====Thanks for any suggestions. It's bee surprisingly hard to find one.
- Number of sections = 4 or less, but willing to consider 5 (Hogan says that's bad)
- Leg locks = flip levers preferred, but will consider anything
- Material = carbon fiber or aluminum
- Weight capacity = 12lbs or more, D7000 and up to 300 lens in windy desert
- Folded length = < 22" (to fit in my motorcycle side bag, shorter is definitely better)
- Max height = 64" or more (I am 6' and want eye level for landscapes)

You're as happy as you think you are.

Max height = 52" legs only, but 63 1/2" with column attached.  Depending on the head you intend to use, this may not be required.

Folded length = 19 1/2"

Weight capacity = 26ibs

Material = Carbon fibre

Leg locks = twist locks

Number of sections = 4

Weight = 2.8lbs.

It also folds flat, so will take up substantially less space in your bag.  They do others that may suit you better, but for the price, quality is excellent.

Mine came from China via ebay.
