Was that picnic table in that top bag?

That is one huge bag!

haha, yeah I guess it does look big on that first picture, but it's not that bad. It's a t-bag roller dekker.

Here's my setup for my recent 4900-mile Lewis and Clark trip: KC to Astoria, OR and back.



L side case: boots, light jacket and rain gear (all for off the bike), two books, shave kit, one heavy polartec top, small sack with spare batteries and misc. cords.

R side case: all clothing for 2 weeks with one laundry stop figured in.

Top case: only half full so I can put in some food or my helmet. It has a tiny folding camp chair, bead breaker, electric gloves and jacket, spare moto gloves, 2 pairs of gloves, neck gaiter, balaclava, laptop in sleeve, one bottle of red wine, large atlas. Yea, a large one:



Duffel: tent/poles/fly/footprint, 20F sleeping bag, stove, coffee and press, cooking kit (stove stows inside the cooking pans), water filter, freeze-dried backpacker food and quick oatmeal for 2 meals/day x two weeks, mess kit, laundry sack.

Tank bag: phone, camera, clif bars, journal, flashlight and headlamp, a few $, plenty of room left for a sammich and a water bottle. Tools and air pump, spares and straps are under the seat.



Each system case and the duffel weighs 20-22 lbs loaded as shown. Subtracting 30 lbs (tare weight of cases), I'd estimate 50-55 lbs of gear in total. I could take more stuff, I could probably fit a better pillow in there, could take more clothes and skip doing laundry, but many campgrounds have laundry facilities and it's just more stuff.

Actually, it is the fender bag by Wolfman. I just mounted it on the number plate because it was blocking the headlight a bit when I had it on the fender. I do change the location of the bag depending on where I am going and for how long. For daytrips it may end up on my rear rack or in the dirtbagz.

It just has spare tube and tire irons inside. Good quality product as in all of the Wolfman line. In Canada my source is Burnaby Kawasaki. Just too much hassle to order online stateside and suffer through the whole duty and brokerage fees scene.

I had the wolfman bag with a single heavy duty tube in it, on the Fender of my DR650E with four washers to reinforce the mounting screws. Every time id do a quick stop my knobbies would grind off a bit of plastic off of the tip of the Fender.

Relocating it as a number plate bag makes sense.

The old setup:



Churchill Falls, Labrador


A good reason to go to a new setup:


and the new setup, but it should improve once I get the racks and panniers on the DR650E


Perhaps I should get a GS Adventure, I seem to pack as if I'm riding one.

I think that's fantastic, so many guys would just give up and say "Oh well, other than the caravan, my camping days are over..." Good on you!

2-up setup

SpeedySteve and I went on a weeklong adventure in Southern Utah two weeks ago on the '12 GSA (our first 2-up camping trip!) and here are a few photos of our setup:





Our wonderful campsite for a few nights, including some of the equipment we brought (our favorite: REI chairs!)





We have 11.5" Odyssey Jesse Luggage panniers, Jesse Luggage top box, two Wolfman medium Expedition top-rolling dry duffel bags strapped onto the panniers with Rok-Straps, and an Outdoor Research 55L green dry bag strapped to the top box with Rok-Straps. The 55L dry bag was excellent for storing two motorcycle helmets during a rainstorm! We also have an awesome Bags Connection GS tank bag.

Steve is in close contact with Al Jesse about his most up-to-date products. During this trip, we did a trial run with prototypes of part of his lid-rack system on the panniers. Don't bother Al with questions yet, it should be on his website soon!

does this count as ultralight camping?

I know it is a terrible cell phone picture, but it is the only one I have of any of my bikes with camp gear on board.

283lbs loaded and full of fuel :



Wolfman E-12 saddlebags and Renegade duffel:
Kelty salida 2 tent
Big agnes insulated pad
cheap 40* mummy bag (this REALLY needs to be replaced with a 0* or 20*)
pistol +20 rounds
alcohol stove
cookware (stove is inside of it)
folding saw
folding shovel
compact hiking shoes
rain gear
swim trunks
flashlight
food for 3 days (MRE's and freeze dried, along with foil pouch of tuna, can o' spam, and Idahoan potatoes)
water filter

I did carry all my usual tools/ first aid/ bike spares/ etc. as well, but they were in my backpack (12.2L including my 3L bladder) so were not included in the above weight.
