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.

That Wiener should fit into a tool tube ...

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.

Use your abs, not your arms...

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

GS no-poles StealthCamping tent: finally here

Well - it has taken nearly four months to arrive by mail from South Africa to Michigan, but my Stealth Tent is here.


The GS is in the shop getting a new front tire, so the mighty Excursion will be it's stand-in. You get the idea of this moto-camping tent - no poles. You attach to your bike with bungie cords and you are good to go. The tent is roomy for one guy with space at your feet for your gear. The mesh panel at the top gives you a bit of fresh air and sunlight.

The tent appears to be very well made - by hand - by our ADV inmate Boer in South Africa. He even did a special red version to match my bike:



The girls had a great time playing in it tonight on it's maiden setup:


It packs down very small and there are no poles to deal with. Ideal for the bike. I plan to use mine in tandem with my hammock: sleep in one, store gear in the other, depending on tree availability.

If you want your own (and are patient!!!) give Boer a shout: stealthcampingtent@gmail.com
