Yeah... it truly is amazing how much of a deterrent it is to folks messing with your gear.

I've got a $20 cover I bought on sale from CycleGear -- it takes up very little room when stored in one of those "compressible" bags....

A trip I took a couple weeks ago to Louis and Clark Reservoir in South Dakota , first long trip with trailer. My favorite thing I brought was the hammock.

Yeah I probably could have, mosquitos were bad in the mornings so I would have to get a net maybe. Plus I've never slept all night in a hammock, I don't know if my back would like sleeping in a curve all night... and getting naked in the open at such a family friendly place might ruin the whole ambiance.

I think you might be able to get a little more gear onto your rig by strapping some items to the lid of the tool box on the trailer, and maybe a rack on the trailer wheel? It looks awfully sparce and empty back there.

Every year I check this thread for new ideas and gear.
Very helpful as I prepare for two weeks on the road.
Bound for the BMW rally in Salem Oregon with a few days ocean-side.
Pics of set up soon.

Makes for an interesting challenge for sure! The added room under the seat was a bit of a bonus, storage-wise. Unfortunately my SC is designed with the gas tank under the seat, so I have to unstrap the duffel bag every time I fill up (3 - 4 times a day on long trips). It gets tedious and I am still working on a solution for that.

Even fully loaded, I still managed 75mph WOT on I-10 on my way to hill country (60+ mpg to boot)

Yesterday on the Dakar...

...Deep in the backwoods of LA (Lower Alabama) near South Peach Tree...



Another one from the side, also yesterday, in Plantersville north of Selma.



I ran the straps for my Wolfman enduro saddle bags beneath the seat so they'd hang lower, then put all the tools and heaviest stuff in them. The giant loop kind of sits atop them at the ends and I strap it to the cross straps on the saddle bags. GL holds, hammock, sleeping bag, hatchet, cooking kit, other camp essentials. Then I strap my Kermit to the back of it all with the GL straps and use a bungee net to hold down a 12-pack Polar Bear cooler and my rain suit. Works very well because everything above the seat except the cooler when it's full is lightweight items.

Camp last night:

Free, shaded camping at Lake Isabella

The perfect camp makes carrying *too much stuff* worth the struggle... and then there are days I would travel with only a towel. At least when it falls, it doesn't fall very far.
