This was my Scrambler. Coming back from North cape. tankbag with camera, binoculars, mp3, maps, water.
big yellow duffle for clothes, food. Tool tubes, one each side with 1 liter of gas in each . small tent , sleeping pad, big agnes sleeping bag all in dry bags. Wolfman tank paniers over the top, guide books, rum, coffee,cooking gear in a small plastic pannier on non-exhaust side. it sort of worked but later, somewhere in Sweden a gravel road made my tent shake free....

Haha, there certainly are some long straits along that way...seeing any corner was something to get very excited about! When I took that pic at the Uranus sign, I'd pulled over for a slash and to reset the brain from boredom...that trance-like-state of following the lines and singing awful songs in my helmet for amusement was starting to happen. Love your pics and input mate, and I hope the upcoming trip to Tassie is a ripper!!

My little contribution from a 9 day trip to Colorado and back this summer

On the bike, Beyers Canyon I believe



Wolman med size dry duffle containing the house



Contents on a picnic bench



left to right: camp shoes, camp chair, tent stake bag, columbia reactor sleeping bag, Big Agnes sleeping pad (the mongo version) Cabela's APG 2 person tent and foot print

Home



Left bag



Top half= round red bag is pot and stove, on top of that is my Zumo case (that should have stayed home) bottom to top on right is tool kit/forst aid kit/tire repair kit/french press. Bottom half= green bag is heated liner, blue bag is extra rok straps/bungees, red roll is a fleece sweater
Right bag



top half= cloths bag behind Bilt camo 6 pack cooler, left of that is my douche bag and Platty bag of corn liquor, gobbed around that is a glasses case/hacky sac/ vaious other little bits. Bottom half= platty water bag, evenings PBR 24, tan bag is books, extra gloves.

I ran a Wolfman tank bag on this trip for the first time ever and just as I have always ranted more room = more shit. I've been working on my camera hobby (as you can tell from the pic quality it NEEDS work) and used the tank bag mostly as a camera bag for my DSLR. But, other stuff got thrown in and it was handy. I don't know that it will be a staple of trips like this in the future because this trip was about the ride, there wasn't a whole lot of non riding time during the day and I wound up not using the big camera as much as I wanted during the planning stage. I think on trips with fewer miles per day and time for playing around at stops I'll use it.

Did you not notice the neck of the beer bottle sticking up behind the cup in that last picture? There were more cool beers in the Polar Bear ice chest sitting in front of my pannier/camp table.

The tea was for later that night... suitably spiked with brandy, of course!

Here's my setup. From a trip up to Tohoku, north Japan.




Cheapest possible hexatarp and tent.
Changed the stock poles on the tarp to something lighter. Pretty hot here in August, so didn't bother with the rainfly on the tent.
