Loaded for 2-up camping, ready for the road

Wife and I bought a Harley a couple years ago and have done quite a few road trips on it. We like touring on the HD because its basically clothing and a credit card...very simple.


We now have a GSA with BMW/Touratech side bags and top case and we're looking to expand touring to include our favorite camping destinations. We have done a lot of backpacking over the past 10 years, so we have all the smaller/ultralight camping gear, which should make the transition easier...not to mention lighter on the pocketbook!


I want to do some packing and test out where everything will go and how its all going to fit on the bike. I can't see how to accomplish packing for 2-up without having softbags mounted to the tops of the panniers.


So, my request is to see some pics of bikes loaded up for camping for TWO people. This wouldn't even be a challenge if I were riding solo...but 2-up and camping seems to be another ballgame.


Any pics, I'd love to see them!!

Thanks guys.

Getting ready for the long weekend

While not an action shot of Ghita Samina while on the road, this is a a jump start on my long and anticipated weekend trip to Vancouver to hang with my brother and friends. Only the necessities installed on my Jesse Bags!

same bike, my panniers are even smaller then yours. Camping with 2 = no problem.

sleeping bags in one roll, mattresses in one roll and tent in last roll, one pannier each for own clothes, shoes and stuff and topcase for cooking equipment etc, oil, extra gas-oil. Tankbag for electrical recharging and stuff.

looking for some extra bottle holders to have my cooking gas-oil and an extra bottle of water outside the panniers. Works perfectly for us
