I find it really interesting seeing how much people can pack into their panniers,

My Givi panniers have a 45 ltr. capacity. The three combined was more than enough for the two of us. When I'm on my own, I never need more than two.

I've got a fairly compact sleeping bag, but may be on the lookout for a down one soon...
I use dry compression sacks which squish the sleeping bags down to about 25% of their uncompressed size. Mine are synthetic filled sleeping bags (20 degree which really means closer to 35 - 40 degree). I think down sleeping bags compress down even farther.

I have a couple of rules when traveling/camping on the motorcycle - One is NO fast food. I make it a point to only stop at family owned restaurants. Better support of the local economy and get to meet interesting people. Often, they are a great source of advise on what to see and where to stay.

I totally agree... One of the matras we use is "If we have it at home, we won't go there on a trip"...

I absolutely agree with this from a culinary standpoint... However, people who work at fast food places are also local . I had a 6 hour long border crossing (US to Canada)... I finished my book while waiting for immigration officers to study all the pertinent regulations and let me through. I was starving and the first place (30 minutes from the border) was a McDonald's. I stumbled in - it was dead empty. The older lady working there noticed that I had a rough time, hooked me up with some crap food and excellent conversation. An hour later, my spirit was restored...

Just because the corporation is soulless, workers could be amazing...

Perfect. That pretty much sums up how we travel. Otherwise, why leave.

I'll admit - there have been times when I've craved McDonald's. While on a nine day trek through Mexico, I ended up with Dysentery. After three and a half long, miserable days I started feeling a bit better. All I wanted was something familiar and the McDonald's in Mazatlan fit the bill perfectly.
