The tank nag holds maps, personal stuff and anything I might need during the day.
I just borrowed a US10 for my Death Valley trip, great stuff. I'm a big fan and will be buying more of their stuff!

Word of advice from my experience, carry a couple large garbage bags and put your tent in one. The sleeping bag will wick the moisture from your tent, especially in a sealed bag. Sleeping in a wet bag, sucks!

Kriega

I have the four bags in the photo above and also a R25 back pack and I couldnt be happier with them. The way they can be reconfigured and switched between bikes is clever and versatile. The back pack puts the weight where it should be and is easy to carry on or off the bike.

I agree that the Kriega bags/packs are awesome.

But holy crap that is a lot of stuff to carry.

Looks good, but don't you need a few more bags strapped to your bike in order to fit in around here ;-)

Hey C!! How have you been? Still have the top case? Not too good at ride reports. We sure had a blast camping our way to Mt Rushmore and back!! Hope you're getting some good riding in!
