2007, alaska, 40 days, 1987 xr600r. 2011, san fransisco to south carolina,32 days. 1987 xr600r. Dirt, dirt, and more dirt. Dog packs make great saddlebags. Made my own tank bags. Whisperlite international camp stove, use the gas from your tank to cook. Small compass on the dash keeps me from pulling the map out at every intersection. Cabelo's gore-tex guidewear overalls ( cheap, waterproof, and big pockets). Gore-tex socks rock. Bivey sack, big agnus ( very small ) sleeping pad, 20 degree down sleeping bag, and ponchos. Yes, the old trusty poncho. Use it as a tarp/shelter, instant easy rain gear for lunch stops. At the end of the day, take off the red riding coat and cover the bike with a cammoflage poncho. Dissapear into the landscape and relax. Going to the desert? Don't forget the small water purification pump. cheers, red clay
