Tyvek may not be a bad idea for what you're thinking, I spend a pant load of time in them and they keep water in like a MoFo, would keep it out but not "proof". The seams on tyveks aren't seam sealed. If you could find Tychems I believe those are seam sealed. Try Grainger.com they sell those, not cheap.

That's a clean setup. What's the bag on your right pannier?
For that matter, what kind of panniers?
Also, what size is the Pelican?

Might be wrong, probably, but looks like Trax cases and a pelican 1450 rear box............just a guess.

Yup motoboss is correct. The boxes are 37 liter Trax Evo's and the case on top is an expandable trax case. I can't remember what Pelican that is but I ended up getting a larger one after that Trip.

My packing for a 3-4 day trip, could go longer with some small additions.

Left side pannier:
- Sleeping bag
- Self-inflating pillow
- Air mattres
- Toolkit
- Axe

Right side pannier:
- Clothes
- Sandals

Blue bag on the rack has only the tent in it. And in thank bag I had papers (ID, insurance,...), chargers, sunglasses and some small bits and pieces.

R12 GSA pics?

I have and R12 GSA with a top box and have removed the pillion seat. I have a Wolfman dry bag that will be place laterally across the pillion area and house my Synmat, tent, Kermit and a few sundries. Anyone that uses dry bags placed in that manner with pics and "ride reports"? I looked through a bunch of pages but didn't see what I am describing.

Cool set-up! Mine is a Triple Black with panniers and a top box. The plan is to carry a similar size dry bag but it will be hanging over the panniers laterally (side to side). Love it you taking the dog along.

( still not figured out the new photo sharing requirements...flickr problem? A setting?)

I often use my Nemo Losi 2p w/o the fly in warmer weather preferring the Kelty Noah (12') for weather protection and yet great ventilation. I like that this setup makes a large/tall 'front porch' in addition to the usual back vestibule. It's handy in inclement weather to sit under or even roll the bike under. Nice views in two directions although a corresponding lack of privacy.

The 'set up' picture was taken after last night during which we got blasted by very high winds, incredible lighting/thunder and very heavy rains. It was quite a show and there was about a half hour during which I wished I'd deployed the fly as I felt some cool mist blown in. In general my gear and myself were adequately protected through it all and morning tea was had in dry comfort despite the ongoing rain.

Otherwise the usual stuff is present except I use a wool blanket in place of a sleeping bag. It's all stuffed into the large MotoFizz bag (unexpanded) and the hard cases. The orange duffel on the top case rack has a few clothes and wouldn't have been needed if I'd not been in such a hurry to get going (late getting off work and connecting with others). Often a soft-sided cooler is there instead for meal supplies. I also have a tank bag I occasionally add in.

Pretty much everything packed in the luggage during our NZ trip on a rented bike. The overflow (tent, ground pad, wet stuff) went in a duffle we strapped to the top of the top box. For security we wrapped that in a PacSafe.


Believe it or not, that was what all this stuff looked like packed for the airport:
Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

-Complete riding gear for two (pants, jackets, liners, heated gear, helmets, gloves, boots)
-Tent - Nemo 3p tent, including ground pad and interior paw print
-Sleeping bags - Golite
-Sleeping pads - Exped Synmat X2
-Space blankets
-Two full size camp towels
-clothes for two for four days
-2 sandals (chacos)
-2 cameras (small H2O proof, larger for zoom)
-maps, passports, paperwork
-personal hygene stuff and makeup for her
-swimsuits

We put everything into stuff sacks organized by size and color and crammed them into the cases.

I can only imagine how hard it was to get that sofa into a compression bag and cinching it down ...
