Packed for a week of fishing and camping. My right bag always has tools and a small trauma pack taking up space. I pack pretty much all my food. Still not sure why a week's ride needed all that gear, except that this was February and the suitable sleeping bag didn't pack into either side bag. Winter camping does require more bulky gear than summer stuff.

Winter camp. No snow on the ground at the campsite, but temps were down around 30 F in the mornings, and water bottles were frozen. There was plenty of scattered snow along the roads on the higher elevations and in the shadows.

This is from the camping, sightseeing, fishing (and short hikes) trip Ofanoanit and I just took to northern NM and souther CO (Mesa Verde) for four days. The bags on the Caponord are 35L Touratechs. During the work week they haul the groceries very nicely. I take tools, some emergency medical stuff along with our usual gear. The dry bag on the right has 3-season sleeping bag, Thermarest pad, tarp for under the tent, and fishing rod. The left side is the tent (20 year old Walrus mountaineering tent) and my dad's old WW II jeep shovel. The tail bag is mostly on-the-road stuff like snacks, water, maps, toilet paper, etc. And there was still room to ride two-up while shuttling among the sites at Mesa Verde.

Night shot of camp at Navajo Lake. Tent is plenty roomy, with front and back vestibules. A bit of overkill for summer camping, but we've had this tent a long time and no point in spending money on something else. When our daughters were little, we did high altitude camping in this tent and it snugly fit three plus gear.

Home made tubes fit inside case mount. Carry tools, extra straps etc.

Cases un/re mount very easy. Make good table's when free style camping.

Tent does have complete rain fly when needed.

Next project is to mount mirrors from a GS so I can see over the cases. That way I can strap things on if needed.

Also whole package does good job of hiding my fat butt!







Man I LOVE your 800 ST setup! Now thats how bmw should sell that bike with real cases! Pls show us your next projects on your bike as soon as they're on it!

Perfect, warmth in a bottle, "we don't need no stinking tent/sleeping bag"!
Nice!

My setup

Everything goes into my HT panniers except the Kermit chair and Kelty 9' tarp. They are strapped down on the seat behind the Pelican case.

Blue Moutain Camping in April 2011

In April 2011 I took a solo trip from New Hampshire to Key West, FL. I had to much of some, things and well yep I over packed. its a lot easier to stop at a gas station in the afternoon and buy a can of soup then it is to lug cooking, cleaning etc gear. the space I saved was worth buying my coffee in the morning instead of making it at camp.

Well now that you brought it up.
The Wee held up great the chain guard broke when I hit too many frost heaves.
Suspension seems little lacking in the Vstrom's

I fried the rear Tourence really squared off at about 11,000 miles the front still on the bike.

The Harbor Freight gas tanks well not so good one leaked and both of the conveyor belt material came loose from the tanks.
(it's for wear)
To refresh your memory.....

I've gone through most of this thread looking for tip and ideas. My son and I went for a 2 night ride and campout this week. Learned a couple things too. But mostly just had about 400 miles and 2 nights of fun. :)

Ready to go... managed to get everything into the boxes and two duffle bags. Each duffle has a sleeping bag and clothes for each of us and tent poles in one of them The top box was food. Left side box is tools, tent and misc. Right side box was kitchen stuff, air sleep pads, towel, tarp, flashlights, fishing reels and my laptop because I had to work for a few hours


Let the camping begin...

Loaded. Dry Duffel contains tent, sleeping pad and sleeping bag. Side cases each have an 8L dry bag for clothes. Other items included stove, mess kit, food, tools, rain gear, and folding stool. Tank bag contains cameras, chargers, personal meds and extra visor. Map pocket on tank bag has SPOT tracker.



Unpacked at camp. Now that I've returned, I'll be sorting through everything and deciding what not take on my road trip at the end of the month. I'd like to try my soft bags next run...
