the shelter is a kelty noah tarp 12 that i can set up a multitude of ways depending on need, bag for this time of year is a 30* eureka in its own compression bag, it is by far the largest bit in the set-up.

I'm not into having a bunch of gear hanging off my bike, so I narrowed down my gear to fit into two panniers and a small waterproof bag that attaches where the pillion seat would be.

All my items for a 2 week trip on the CDR (MT-NM)


Seattle Sports Axis Dry bag with tube, axle tool, tire spoons and bike cover


Alps Mystic 1.5 tent, Klymit Inertia X sleeping pad, Alite chair, Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 down sleeping bag and Cocoon Coolmax sleeping bag liner


And everything fits in these three bags (Mountainsmith and Seattle Sports)


And a boring picture of it all on my bike. You'd never even guess I was traveling somewhere

Nice work

Have you got a break-out on the items in the first picture?

The "compressible" bag with the "M" logo ... what brand is that?

I've been using a no-name brand, but the seem to get holes in them easily... looking for something more durable!

Not sure which bag you mean. The blue one? I'll edit this post with a break down of the items in the first photo later tonight.

Eagle Creek compression bag. That's the medium size. I bought a set of them and they seal out all the air without having to use a vacuum. They're great for airline travel, too. I have a pair of nylon hiking zip off pants, nylon hiking shorts, 3pr Klim socks, 2 pr Ex Officio underwear, 2 Nike Dryclime t shirts in there.

The ones I have been using are from "Space Bags" and are a couple bucks each ... but wear out ... maybe you do get what you pay for ...

not trying to sound like a hardcore biker or whatever but why do people take up space with bike covers? its an ADV bike how does a little dew or rain hurt it?

1) When camping the bike is often under trees. I'd rather the cover get splattered with sticky sap and bird shit than the tank bag and saddle.

1) It's an anti theft device. I'll put helmet and riding gear on the saddle then cover the bike. People who might look twice at an uncovered tank bag, GPS, and riding gear just walk on by the covered bike... especially when they see the cover is marred by sticky sap and bird shit.

I bought it for use when traveling away from home to put on at motels to keep it from being tampered with. I doubt I'll need it on my upcoming trip on the CDR, but I was glad I had it when I rode through Baja. As you can see, it doesn't take up much space compared to some folks who have tons of stuff strapped on their bikes.
