Yes, that's right. I use a Sherpa airline pet carrier. I have a towel wrapped around it in that pic because it was cold and rainy and Joe likes to stay warm.

That Walmart bag has served me well, and you sure can't beat the price. I do carry a few things in a dry bag inside, but not biggy. I think that was the last time I am going to use that chair though. After a long day riding sitting on it was torture. I still haven't decided to pony up for a Kermit, but I have to find something better.

F650GS + Nomad + Kermit

Packed ready to roll for three nights camping, touring and fishing.
Tent and Kermit are on the seat. sleeping bag, inflatable mattress, cooking and fishing gear etc are in the panniers and the top box. For extended touring I'll get a 70 to 90 liter waterproof bag to sit across the seat to hold the tent, seat, sleeping kit and clothes to free up one of the panniers for spares and more food.



And set up at the campgrounds.

Love these dogs, we had a few when I was a kid. Great guys.

First time camping on the WR. I was pleased with how well everything fit on the bike and didn't feel overloaded.

I added a folding stadium seat and camera stand also. Below doesn't include perishable food and drink. Also my clothes for the trip arent pictured. The blue case is water proof and could fit a few days worth of clothes for me.

Frankly, I recommend looking at something else. While I love the size and waterproofyness, it was a PITA detaching/retaching during gas stops via the front hook thing that goes under the steering column. Also, the velcro by the seat kept wearing out. I ended up using gaffer's tape to keep it in place.

Nice looking set up, camping in style and comfort?! Any pics of camp?
