Thanks.

I'm going to look for a smaller, summer bag tonight. That blue sucker takes up too much real estate. I don't want to have to ride 700 miles sitting on the tank.

as others have sugested, pack the tent in a bag separate from the poles, and it'll be much smaller (think small beach ball, perhaps) . . . . .

Yes, I pack my tent down into a bag and just cram and pack that sucker down tight, gets it real small and put the poles somewhere else. I can get my tent and my sleeping bag in one roll top bag that way, the two bulkiest things I have.

Another +1 on that.

Here's the bike on a recent trip through CO/UT...



Bag, pad, and clothes in the 40L SealLine -- tent, fly, and stakes stuffed into a RiverRoad bag on the tail rack -- camera, electronics, and liners in the quick release Kriega on top of it -- incidentals in the tank bag -- water and snacks in a hydration pack. Although I do have to confess to strapping the poles down to my father's bike because it was easier...they would have strapped on top of the SealLine with only slightly more effort. Worked out really well...all bags on and off in a matter of minutes when necessary.

Great packing! Gets me wondering though, is the weather fairly consistent and predictable while you're out? I'm heading off for a week away and the hardest thing is planning the non-riding clothes. If the trip were all about riding, I guess it wouldn't matter, but my trips are more about riding to a spot then settling in. If anyone here knows Victoria (Australia) it truly can be four seasons in one day, meaning rain gear (in addition to riding rain gear), lots'a layers etc.

I love the compactness of your setup, if only I could find a way to make that practical in this part of the world!

Why have two sets of rain gear?

Hiking in an armoured, thermal touring jacket isn't fun ;)

Not the most compact, but one way to do it.

Have you ever had one of those things blow up on you after a few potholes?

I saw a Harvey rider with a beer keg trailer behind his bike. I was drooling for a bit until I saw that had latches and a lock on it. :-D
