Actually it wasn't hard once all the wood was burnt down.

That might make it a bit harder to set up but at least there are no hard pressure points anymore ...

Back to topic:



There's a tent under the sleeping bag (grey/black/yellow compression bag), the stakes and poles are in the lid, as are two camp towels and a first aid kit. The small bags to the left have tent lamp, headlamps, tent footprint, small axe, and the like.

The other pannier carried the second sleeping bag, sandals, all tools (including tire patch kit and pump), camp kitchen, ...

Wife's bike carried clothes and food.

Saw this guy a week ago, heading East on I-90 , east of Chicago... and I was envious I had to work. Anyone here ?
The bike had WI plate.

Don't know how his camp may be set up but he was packed nice :)



Cheers,

Cheers,
That set-up is what I'm talking about! Just wondering how much pressure the grab bars put on the dry bag. Also can't tell if he removed the pillion seat. It is my plan to do so and get a TT luggage rack to replace it.

I'd be inclined to let her pack what she wants...

Correct. That's the 55l model. I had my books, jacket and pants in there. It was nice to be able to go walking for a few hours and know the gear was safe

This thread got me thinking about some of my own packing setups over the years. Nothing very special about any of these photos, just evidence of a love of riding long distance.
This photo is from about 1972 or 1973 and I'm on my first long tour on my 1966 Honda 305 Superhawk. I was headed to Ontario where I worked on archaeology crews and lived off the bike for almost 4 months. Not much was available for motorcycle touring gear and the panniers are Bellwether bicycle panniers.


This was taken in February of 1976 and I'm riding from Minnesota to Mexico on my new Norton. I was gone for 4 months on this ride, too.
Tank bags were kind of a new phenomena and mine was made by Eclipse.


My two week old 2006 Wee Strom and I getting ready for a ride around Lake Superior. I had so much fun that I turned around and rode the lake in the other direction.


October of 2012 and touring from Colorado to the northern California coast. This is Crater Lake where, I'm told, there's a lake in a crater.
