Yes for starters differently soft luggage.supported by home made racks. As I m new to dirt I need to experiment to figure out what do I really need and what works for me. And I do not know if I will do enough long rides to justify the investment of hard luggage. But I must say the water and dust proof ness and relative easy access to the luggage is very appealing!
