I use a Watershed 60L Colorado top-fill dry bag with aninflate/deflate valve. WHich is very handy in giving me more seat space. In back I have a Givi Tech E55 (55L)top box. For the tank back I use an electric (Charge my cell and MP3 player) "city" bag by Bag Connection. The City bag is by far the most handy thing I have on the bike.

Loaded for a two-week national park-hopping trip that I'm on right now from Chicago to the Rockies. (*cough* see my blog in my sig *cough* )



The approximate route:



I got the Motofizz bag sort of on a whim and wasn't sure if it was worth all the hype. Let me tell you, it IS.

Check the road reports as you approach Billings. Parts of I-90 are underwater and large detours are in place.

Nooooooo! I'm already stranded in central Nebraska due to rain and winds. I was worried about a chain reaction - wait here, delay there, detour there. Next thing you know, my trip is a week longer than it is supposed to be.

KLR packed

KLR packed with Wolfman tankbag (tight mounting and good fuel fill access, well made and lots of compartments); Great Basin Great Loop bag (very well made, fits tight on the bike, great soft backrest and if you dab a foot won't get jammed under a hard box, offers great storage and internal compartments as well as straps for tieing odd things on, easy on/off - note: takes pass space away); on top of bag: Roll-a-Chair, REI 2 man tent, Thermarest pad. Yellow pelican case provides some lockable/weatherproof storage.

Some items I recommend based on years of use: JetBoil stove (simple, fast, instant start with igniter); at least a 2 person tent with a screen roof, broad rainfly, footprint/groundcloth and some sort of entryway storage/vestible for boots/gear; Thermarest pad (self inflating + about 3 breaths); A mid temp range quality down sleeping bag with liner or bivy cover you can add for colder weather. In warm/hot weather and locations with trees: nothing beats my Hennesey Hammock for comfort and "coolness"; two Wal-Mart cheep LED headlight flashlights beat a $45.00 broken fancy one.

***Dang, photo bigger than I wanted...still learning!

ok, i had to reply to this because its kinda funny.

i know a lot of (if not most) you guys take a whole bunch of stuff, and have really nice bikes all decked out, but i just dont see what it all is!

i rode xcountry on a moped with less... and now i have my sportster i have even less than then! not knocking yall, and it would be nice to have a whole lot of room to carry, but dang!

as of now, i have 2 setups:

short tripper i have an old belgian gas mask bag that holds a hammock (1 lb. 6 oz, 4 x 5" packed) and the suspension (good bit less than a pound, packs into the hammocks stuff sack)

i use a coke can stove (weighs same as 2 nickels) with HEET fuel and open fire for grilling, carry a fire tool, lighter matches and tinder in an altoid can. use a Ti pot/pan combo, all the cooking stuff (stove, pot stand, wind screen, utensils and fuel) fits inside with the lid on.

tarp, cant remember the size, but i can cook under it when raining and when its pouring i can snug it down and be perfectly dry, all gear and myself off the ground! its about 1.5 pounds, and is 4x8 packed.

home made under and top quilts, and im set.

everything but the quilts will fit into the gas mask bag. when all thats packed into the assault bag i have plenty of room for clothes and some small food.

and then if i need, i can strap other gear on the outside and add a few things to the bike, but i really dont have places to put things aside from myself....

and if i lost my pack, id be out no more than $300
