Cool2 What have you or do you carry on your GS??

I've seen photos of GS's with bike racks, dog crates, surf boards and kayaks mounted on them. Which the bike rack that doesn't seem to bad. But a kayak that's kinda on the big side. So I wanna see what you carry or have carried and how in the hell you manage to carry. So let see'em I'm sure I'm not the only one..


Not my bike but still cool..

I like my dog too much to risk that, especially on the highway. If I have to carry that much crap, plus the clothes to work with it all, I'll just take a truck - a real one, with four wheels. It does look cool I admit, but my dog's worth more to me than my bike.

Typically my riding buddy, Tyler, my work laptop, tail bag with rain gear, panniers loaded for the weekend at the cabin, my tank bag, and of course my fat ass.

My 27" iMac computer ($1,600, weight=40 lbs)), to take it over to the shop for free warranty repair. Wrapped it in a blanket and put it in a trash bag and strapped it to the pass. seat/luggage rack with those flat straps and drove slow. It worked. The guy at the Apple repair shop was impressed. Guy in parking lot said I should get an iPad for motorcycle use.

Strapped the server to the GS.

Not the best picture, but this was two large ammo boxes which I drove 200 miles to make some panniers for a friends dr650. Looked pretty good on the interstate.

Sorry no pictures but when I was in Korea 10 years ago you wouldn't believe the loads they carry over there. One had 5 five gallon cans of fuel. Carpet pad, stacked way up in the air, and hot meals in a metal box delivered to workers, are a few of what I remember.

Some display boxes I built for a client. Too small a payload to warrant use of the 4-wheeler.

Nothing extravagant, but we had a nice roaring campfire in WV that night. MY GSA always gets the firewood hauling duty for some reason.

I've had little old ladies stand in the parking and watch in amazement as I stuff a full grocery cart's worth of groceries in my Vario panniers, tail, and tank bags.

I take my float tube when I go fishing
It fit nicely in the yellow bag with a safety vest, fins, waders and a pump.
