2. Wolfman Mini Beta Plus and Beta Duffle (adding rain covers) with 1 or 2 gallon rotopax mounted to the rear.

Rides will include both riding to a location, setting up camp and doing day trips out coming back to camp while others will include rides where I set up camp only for the night and then pack up and move on.

Any suggestions on either of these set ups before I pull the trigger?

To answer the question more, on what *I* would do.

For rides where I set up base camp, I'd want the beta bags. Get to camp, ditch the heavy crap, go ride.

For rides where I'm moving camp daily or just traveling, I'd get the saddle bags OR the beta bags, both will work equally well depending on how you like to pack.
