Those are Triumph panniers - specifically for the Sprint. How do I know ? I have the same panniers....and that is my Sprint, the other one, in the pics.

Would they fit a GS ? Maybe ? Great bags by the way.

And then you stay at motels?


Dude
i have to agree, left yourself wide open to that one Rev!
cool 'ped btw, i had a honda C50 for a couple years before i got my full license and had as much fun on it as i do now with 1000cc. called it 'outspan', because small ones are more juicy. ive had several bikes now but thats the only one i regret letting go.

Generally, I can get my tent and all my camping gear in the Wolfman duffle, but with a wet weather forecast, I seperate out the tent from my sleeping bag and other stuff. Makes pitching the tent whilst everything else stays dry much easier, same when packing up.

This past weekend - 4 days & 800 miles offroad.

I added a couple of Wolfman Rolie bags to the bike. One I use for water and the other has extra tools/tubes/first aid kit in it. Everything's 100% waterproof (as attested to by the day and a half we spent in pouring rain )

A very cool thread

I have way to much time on my hands so I went through every page. I know hard to believe but.
It shows me it doesn't matter the bike it doesn't matter the stuff cheap, expensive overloaded bare minimum.
If you have the desire you can hit the road.
Also shows the millions of amazing places in America I have to get to.
I had and sold v-strom wish I hadn't from the minute I sold it.

Cheers to all of you and have a good trip

That tent is gone, but not forgotten. In Vermont two years ago in the "Great Wet Summer".

Same trip, somewhere in New York. Just to show it works.

Prior to leaving on the trip. Had an old sleeping bag that wouldn't pack smaller then a human torso. It too is gone. The system will be more compact. Set up was inexpensive, water-proof (big plus on this particular trip) and worked.

This is my lot in life, pretty much.

Your packing set up looks perfectly respectable!

I spend more money than I have, on many things, but have never been able to purchase expensive tents, sleeping bags and tiny compact mattress pads etc.

People will wiseass about how much stuff I have packed, and "kitchen sink" me to annoyance, but then they have a $$$$ down sleeping bag the size of a tin of soup, and all mine are cheap old synthetics that won't squish smaller than a freaking beer keg.

I would need to pack either a pistol or a syringe of morphine to do myself in, if I tried sleeping in a hammock, and thermarests/ridgerests etc., pack huge by themselves, let alone if you need two or whatever, to allow life to continue the next day after camping.

Thus I have a Walmart special-type air matress, that is comfy, but Aircraft Carrier landing deck size in dimensions.

So now, because I have a giant sleeping bag, a big matress, and a large tent to fit this stuff in, I have to dig in the dirt for worms to eat rather than take food and cooking gear? I need to wear a single shirt and one pair of socks for 2 weeks of camping, because taking mutiple pairs of shorts/socks/shirts makes it look like I'm "over packing" ?

Grrr.
