For 1 or 2 nights away I don't bother with any cooking gear, just some bread rolls and ham or something plus lots of munchies, nuts, carrot and celery sticks etc. So here's some pics of the setup including a dozen cans of VB and emergency bottle of port.... For longer trips I have a set of soft panniers to throw over the seat and a tank bag.

The all important cooler bag on the back:-



In the big bag I can get all the camping gear + food +port and some clothes, from the left, pegs, tent pole, tent, air bed, VB, chair, air pillow, sleeping bag:-

Luggage: Which is better? One big bag, or 3 separate compartments?

Expedition riders ,

Any preferences between Giant Loop versus Wolfman versus Hard-Case-Options ?
I require them to be 100% waterproof. I require them to store food, camping stuff and a laptop computer. Enough 'stuff' to survive camping out for, say, 7 days.
In theory, I see an advantage in 3 separate compartments because one might be able to distribute the load more evenly, especially with a top case which can carry the hard stuff, and the side panniers can carry the more soft, lighter stuff.
The Giant Loop has the advantage of being one unit, hugs the bike, but I'm concerned that if I buy a Giant Loop distributing the load might 'get to me'. Am I wrong in thinking that one big bag could present more problems than cures?

I don't qualify as an Expedition rider, but I have camped off bikes some.

Heavy stuff belongs as low as possible, so in the saddlebags, not in the top case.

I try to leave the top case mostly empty, spare gloves, raingear, fleece for when it cools off, etc. That way when you stop you can put helmet, stuff inside. Also, when you stop for groceries, beverages at the end of the day's ride, you have room for them.

Never had a GL, though they look great, especially if you don't want racks to support saddlebags.

Hard luggage can hurt you if you fall over.

Answer depends on the bike and type of terrain you're riding. Obvoiusly for true off-road soft luggage protects you and the bike. I leave Wolfman Expeditions on my bike all the time to carry tools, first aid, heated jacket, water, etc. I'm contemplating getting a Great Basin for my camping stuff (camp-in-a-bag concept). Tent, sleeping bag, Exped pad, Helinox chair, jetboil packed and ready to go. Giant Loop stuff is not waterproof so you need to use dry bags as needed.

Here is my camping setup. This is a Wolfman Beta plus bag.
Bottom layer is a towel sleeping bag,camp pillow,stove including all windscreens tools and fuel bottle in the black bag and my mess kit with a hobos tool for utensils inside.

Layer 2 is my 2 man tent in the red bag and my Thermarest bedroll is the green roll next to it.

Layer 3 is my Kermit chair

I fill the side pockets with MRE's condiments etc. Clothing for a couple days fits nicly in the panniers on the side of the bike and leaves the top box open for tools and any junk I collect. I use the side pockets on the Denali tank bag for a med kit on one side and shaving kit on the other. The bike fully loaded looks like this

Sorry for the poor pictures cell phone was all I had laying about.

I'm a firm believer that you pack the same way for 2 days, 7 days and for a month... Obviously, food could be an exception, but since you are on a moto, you will be around civilization... (Disclaimer: I do not have tons of experience moto camping, but I do have a hiking, world-traveling with a tiny rucksack background.)

Great pics, all of our rivers are upwards of 10' over flood stage. Makes for a wet campsite the next day

New bike and slightly moddified camping setup.

I'm waiting on my GIVI side racks and am shopping for some used E21s for side cases so for now my entire setup goes in a top case, dry bag on the pax seat and tank bag.

The only thing I wish I had more of is ways to cook well. Most of what I eat comes from a can but the burner I currently use is very focused and hard to cook with.

Lol, yeah......the first pic doesn't do the 'kit' justice!

Anzac weekend. One of those trips you won't forget! The most perfect weather you could imagine for this time of year and brilliant roads/riding. Bethanga bridge to Jingelic, Tumba, Tumut, Wee Jasper. Next day toward Canberra but missing it to cross through Brindabella back to Tumut.

For sure Tezza, see you out there!

Frogy, in the first and last pics the water got so high from floods a year ago we were looking up in the trees at the debris!

Here's my DR650 loaded up for a five day camping trip to Horizons Unlimited Rally last August in North Carolina. Don't think I will ever learn to pack lite.
