Here's my set up. I do use a different tent and sleeping bag for cold weather, but ths is what I'd normally pack on my motrcycle. I fit everything into a Pelican 1520 case (it actually gets spread out between my cases). I put a 12 " ruler in the gear pictures to show size.

Tent: Big Agnes Fairview 2 with poles, stakes and footprint

Sleeping Bag: LaFuma Extreme 600 45deg bag
Sleeping Pad: Big Agnes Insulated Air Core

Pillow: REI Down Backpacker Pillow
Lantern: Ozark Trail (Walmart) LED
Towel: REI XL microfiber

Stove: Coleman Apex II Multi-Fuel. I pack the stove in a small pot (not pctured) and have plastic silverware and a scrubber and soap to clean it.

Packed up on the TAT in Mississippi last summer

Bedroll/tent at rear. In Australian, 'a swag'. Roll a sleeping bag and down filled inflatable pad inside. Has fibreglass hoops top and bottom to lift the canvas off of you. Waterproof and warm. Separate insect mesh screen for hot weather. One stop solution.
$10 fishing bag in front of that; spare tubes, butane stove, clean jeans, Ts, sox and jox.
Tank bag; magnetic; electronics, first aid, smoking essentials, maps, lens cleaners, wet wipes (for top and bottom)
Ogio Filght vest: tools, bike lift, photographic, hydrapack, Gerber multi tool, mini compressor, tyre levers, wallet, phone, toiletries, more smokes etc.

Here is my set up for a few days on the road. The right pannier holds my cooking gear, food, Thermacell (really keeps the mosquitos away), water, rain gear (in the lid), and hatchet. The left pannier holds all my bike tools, first aid kit, spare parts. cold weather stuff (Gerbings jacket liner and pants liner), 35 degree down sleeping bag, and cleaning rags. The yellow dry bag on the right pannier holds my MSR Mutha Hubba tent. My bike cover and Kermit chair are on the left pannier. Two MSR fuel bottles on the rear of the left pannier and a bit of extra fuel on the back of the right pannier. My ground cloth and tarp are under my Thermarest roll on the seat behind me. The top pannier holds my clothes, cap, gloves, small Apple laptop, and anything I need to get to regularly. The tank bag holds my camera, phone, chargers etc.

I like the Morpho 1P tent because with no poles it is easy to pack. The tent is roomy inside and easy to set up and take down. The air beams are solid. Being a single wall tent, condensation can be an issue. In the little trip I did recently I camped in overnight temps that went down to 25 degress Farenheit and I did have condensation inside the tent but it did not prevent a warm sleep (20 degree Marmot bag on an Exped downmat). The Morpho 1P is not a freestanding tent so you do have to stake it out (2 on each end and 1 on each side). Stake the ends first, pump up the air beams, then stake out the sides. Easy.

Here's my SV loaded up for a long weekend of camping. The red bag acting like a back rest is a freebie camping chair I got for being a blood donor. Behind that is my Kelty Grand Mesa 2, a small sleeping bag and pillow. Behind that is my sleeping pad. I have to say, the Ogio soft luggage did a pretty good job. I'm looking to cobble together a rack and some Pelican 1430's as panniers in the near future.

Here's the tent. It rained when I pitched it, rained all night, and rained when I packed it up. Didn't leak a drop, thankfully. Just absolutely covered in slugs when I woke up the next morning.

I can go up to two weeks easily on trail, just need to replenish food or bring more. Water/Gas are easy to come by when empty. Obviously, if I don't need it, well, I don't bring it or replenish at stores. This is a camping setup w/a planned destination. Not a weekend riding setup. Go light whenever possible!

Nice lightweight set-up.....
