Edge,

What are you using for tank panniers? Is it only on that one side and does it happen to be a hydration bag?

Thank you very much for the pics!

This is my camping setup on my recent trip up the Gibb. Swag, mozzie dome and most important, camp chair :)
I keep the chair and dome on my custom front rack, and the swag, tools, food, beer and clothes on the rear.
I keep it all in place with ockie straps (bungee cords). Some peole dont like 'em, i think they are great.
I can also keep my camera on the front rack, which enables me to get it out while on the move and take a few action snaps.
I'm currently thinking of a redesign of my rear luggage system, with better support for the soft bags.

Here is the Burgertime loaded for camping with my wife (her rebel doesn't hold much). I arrange the drybags to serve as a bit of a backrest and leave the topbox largely empty: it's for helmets at stops and tools/spares. Yes I know bungees are the spawn of statan and "you could shoot your eye out, etc."



Here's camp. This was for a 2 week ride carrying food/cooking supplies.



Big change I would make would be to store the tent's fly in a separate bag that was ventalated. It's usually wet from condensation in the morning and there's not enough time to air dry when in a hurry. I haven't come up with a perfect solution for the sleeping bags either. We currently have two drybags, each with sleeping bag, groundpad, pillow and bag liner. They stay nice and dry but don't get to air out save when we setup camp. I haven't found a good way to have a bag that's dry when needed and vented when not.

Great detective work

I couldn't quite make out the name on the tent.

This looks pretty much what I am looking for - it's similar to the MSR Velo (IIRC) but without the MSR price. Need to figure out if I can get one over here now.

Edit: After some research I found this:

http://www.coleman.com/coleman/colem...tegoryid=70035



Seems the Quartz has been replaced by this.

Anybody have one of these - how was the original Quartz ?

Where do you guys find these campsites that have soft grass all over the place?

Every place I have ever camped has had hard dirt and rocks. The most I have been able to get in terms of cushioning is dead pine needles!

How to overload an 1150

Step 1: Go on a trip with some friends

Step 2: Make sure each of you has a pillion and cannot use the back seat for any luggage

Step 3: Make sure the other rider has a small bike with enough luggage capacity for a toothbrush

Step 4: Be the "nice guy" and offer to take his stuff... and his friends stuff, and his girlfriends spare shoes... and ALL 4 SLEEPING BAGS... and a 10 man tent... and...and...and...

And voila!
