Everything but the kitchen sink on a KLR



All the way from Ottawa to Inuvik and back 27 days, 16,000 kms

Full set of tools, chain, sprockets, tubes,tents,etc,etc

Switching tires to ride the Dempster highway and parts of Alaska



Not a good picture but you get the idea



Another setup for an evening



The gas can came in real handy



Carried those tires all the way up the Dempster - would not do that again despite all the horror stories of cut tires. All part of the challenge!

Looks about perfect, I've got a little lightweight 6' one I use as a general utility tarp, a little small to huddle under though. The only thing that's steered me away from bigger tarps is that here in Oz, you generally keep clear of most of the trees!

Gotta watch those drop bears...

Actually jokes aside... Beware the widowmaker...

The gum trees look fine- but deep inside the termites eat the guts out of the tree and without warning... Down they crash...

So for all those hammock guys... If the critters don't eatcha the vegetation's gonna squish ya!

Gotta love the great land Downunder...

ONN... Some say he is the new minister of tourism!

I used to be scared of Bunyips, swagmen and teenagers... Until a beautiful old ghost gum dropped a massive man-sized branch right next to where I was setting up for lunch! Now I'm only scared of the trees.

...and occasionally still The Predator (damn over active imagination...)

Packed for an overnight trip

I also have a larger wolfman bag that I'll use if I need to bring more stuff (my gear on the KTM) and the tent would be packed outside the dry bag after the first night on a multi night trip. The gobi boxes hold a lot so I went with the smaller bag.

Trees are optional; I carry two poles. This time there was a tree available so I only used one of the poles. That isn't always the case.

Racks made by Jackpiner57, (inmate here) send him a PM. He makes them for the DR's and KLR's. Great guy to work with and very great setup!

Me and a mate went on a three day gravel tour to sort our camping kit ahead of a longer Norway trip in early October.
We loaded up with everything we thought we'd need for a week+ trip. I'm happy to say that i basically used everything i packed bar a change of clothes. And still had plenty of storage place left.
I wasn't hindered at all by this set up, even on small trails. It's very light weight all in all, i'd be surprised if im carrying more then 15kg (not counting the extra fuel). Only thing I'd change is the tank bag, its slightly to wide for my taste but as i got it for 8 euros at a flea market it's staying for the time beeing.
My mate was equally pleased with his setup but will add another dry bag for Norway. Also we will both be carrying a tiny little chair for that trip. Neither of us are the comfortable type (as you can see i use the stock seat and did 1200km over three days) but not having anything to rest your back at for a week won't do.




It all packed out to this.



After a light crash I found out that the downside of soft bags.

This is by far my favorite thread! And this is what drew me to ADVRider in the first place.
One of the things I like most here is it seems all are welcome.
From scooters to Harley's it's great.
Thank you all
