I read too many comments about the "Achilles" issue. I have had to put a foot down a few times with the gas cans on the rear foot pegs and so far, touch wood, have been lucky that they have all been off camber enough that my leg bounced off the relatively pliant gas can. For that reason I don't use either the hard panniers or the gas cans on footpegs when I am going into the rough stuff. For that I have a set of soft bags and simply strap a gas can on top of the luggage if I need added range. I have looked at the rotopax set up but haven't been able to justify the cost. Here are a couple of photos of my luggage options. I haven't ever used both dry bags because I haven't needed the capacity. I also have a camera dry bag that I use with the smaller Sealine bag when I want to carry two DSLR's. Later on in the year I added a CJ Racer rear rack which is a great platform for the luggage and Outdoor Research dry bags that strap to the top of the aluminum panniers to hold tent, awning, etc. so I can put up some shelter before unloading the rest of the bike..

Didn't mean to turn this thread into a luggage/gas discussion. So here are a few of photos more in keeping with the theme:


Cheer, David
David, glad to hear you are aware and prepared!
I only wish I can define if it will be a simple offroad/onroad ride or a rough ride before I start it... Most of the times I end in the middle of nowhere

BTW, I like this pic.

Good to hear about you, great pic. Portugal seems to be so small, but plenty of nice nooks and crannies.
You had already wandered all along your country I guess?

Fresh from NorCal to NOLA!



Sadly, delivered by truck, rather than ridden, but I suppose the end-result is the same: MINE, ALL MINE, NOW, YA HEAR!



And I'll be stretching her legs with a nice 1,500-mile run-out to Texas Hill Country soon enough anyways...

I made a Las Vegas run for the NAHB International Builders’ Show last week. Screw car pooling with the co-workers, I took the Katoom! And I took as many two lane highways as I could, from Phoenix. These are shots from Seligman, AZ. on Route 66.

65 degrees in Ohio in January. Had to go for a ride. Rode around northern Kentucky and this photo I'm waiting on the ferry in Augusta, Ky to go back across the Ohio.

Simple and to the point.

Makes a refreshing change 'round these parts.

Nice work.
