Just made a "Newner Loop" bag for my camping gear. Strapped over the back seat it affects handling very little. Contents are in dry bags and the whole thing weighs 20-25 lbs.

Testify! It's the biggest difference for my XR650L saddle. But I do need a curb to leg up over it, though I am going to practice pegging up and over. I have the same setup. So simple and so elegant.

Did you make the bag yourself? Looks pretty good.

Do you have any plans/pics of the process? What is it made out of? How durable? Is it an exact "localization" of the Giant Loop design?

I think you mean "Depends", so you don't have to leave the tent during the night.

Headed out for the first camping trip with the S10...

Here it is loaded to go...
Right Pannier has my clothes
Rollie bag on top has all my cooking gear flash light hatchet etc...
Left Pannier has my CPap gear sneakers, and other misc personal itmes
The big gray compression sack has my Redverz Expedition tent. I put it in that beacue that sack is water proof.
The Wolfman Duffel has my sleeping bag and pad and a few odds and ends.

The top box doesn't have much in it...I like to leave a little spare room. Gloves, water bottle chargers etc...





I'll post some pics with it all setup...

I make sure to always put my tent up so that there is a downward slope by the door. This way I can unzip the tent and just piss out of the door without worrying about it running back to the tent. Beats the hell out of putting on shoes and getting out of the tent in the middle of the night. Of course, I could avoid this altogether by not drinking beer around the campfire before bed... But what's the fun in that?

Way easier and less chance of spilling if I piss out of the tent door.

One of the reasons I don't drink Gatorade.

I do like wide mouthed orange juice bottles though.

gear theft?

I'm sure this has been asked before, but have very many campers had trouble with their tied-down gear walking off when they go in for lunch, a hike, or whatever?

Any tips on keeping gear safe?

I have now switched to all lockable hard cases. However, on my last big trip I took I used a Pacsafe if I was going to be away from my bike for a bit. In fact, I still keep this in one of my side cases for just in case. It won't stop a determined thief, but at least a lock will keep a lot of potential thieves away.
