Thanks. It was built way back in 1968. Real wood interior, anodized (matte finished) alum. exterior. Everything works-propane/110v refrig., propane water heater and cabin heater, shower, toilet, water tank/pump, 3 burner stove/oven.

Going to sell it though. I know I'll wish I hadn't.

All of my gear:


Set up in camp:


All packed up:


I might invest in bags at some point, but it's really nice to be able to have all of the weight on me with no added bulk to the bike. All of my gear (including 2 gallons of water) weighs in at just 40lbs and in transit the bike carries most of the weight. I don't worry about security as I just bring my stuff with me if I go anywhere, and I don't have a rack to bend when I crash.

Bike, here a SV650, but the same load goes on my DR650 in Wolfman Expedition panniers.


Camp


You can see the tent and the Monarch chair. In the tent is sleeping bag, Thermarest pillow and Big Agnes insulated, inflatable pad that packs down to nothing. A new tent would be less bulky, but this one is holding strong after many years and I like being able to peek out easily to see what goes "bump" in the night versus the new designs with full rain-fly's. I add a Kelty Noahs Tarp in inclement weather.

I like the cut of your jib.

The bottle goes in the bag. A flask goes in the front left leg of the Areostich AD1 pants. I never drink and ride. However, once I park the bike, the first thing that happens is a pull to take the edge off. Refill the next morning.

3 day trip to Laguna Seca. Tent, pad, and sleeping bag in the wally world dry bag. Clothes, food, jet boil, spare belt and clutch cable in the rear case. Snacks, maps, flashlight etc. in the tank bag. I didn't want to use the side cases so that lane splitting would be easier in California, and I'm glad I did.

Well done, sir.

The nice thing about that GSI flask is that it inexplicably remains odourless, is virtually unbreakable and super light. I carry two, as they're just shy of carrying a full 750ml. Currently all about the Laphroaig 16.

Thanks. the tent fits in one side bag. the blanket/air mattress on the other. Top tail bag for cloths and little stuff like
lamp, air pump, etc. All good for one night of camping.
