That's so very sad.
Not always so nice knowing what's behind a random picture.

There's a new version of the Apex 2XT and I'm not sure if the poles are still the same length or not. I know the version before mine packed a little shorter.





Nice to see someone else using the SE720s as panniers on an SV. That tent looks nice. However, I often 'stealth camp,' so a brightly colored tent is out of the question for me. My choices are limited when looking for a tent with drab colors with poles that fit in my panniers.

I'm actually reasonably happy with the BackCountry tent I've got now. If I had to do it over again, I would have bought the BackCountry 2-person tent... But I'm not unhappy enough to buy another tent. When I do eventually replace this tent, I'll be going with a 2-person for sure.

Then you'll really want to stay away from the current version of this tent.

I have this version of the tent.
I love it.
Although I don't do any stealth camping.
Hell, I don't do much camping at all.

A buddy has one of these... Grilliput - works great; packs very small (1" by 12" tube). I'll be picking one up before next trip.

That looks pretty nifty. I wonder why they don't have some type of wind deflector to go with it. I guess you could easily use some aluminum foil if necessary.

I took the picture of this wee beastie at our motorcycle race track Westwood, near Vancouver British Columbia, back in 1987. I can't honestly remember the plate, but I am pretty sure it was a local rider.

Very friendly and mellow kitty cat, stuck his chin out for a scratch, purred up a storm, and then went back to sleep, snoring away.

That would be sad and bizarre if it was this same Rastus you had seen

My set up for Roamin

I'm about to set off on a road trip that should see me travelling for 6 months - i don't have a deadline

I've done a few trips of a months duration and have worked out what I need and how to pack it on my bike

I have included a couple of creature comforts in deference to my ageing body (eg chair and table)

i intend to spend most nights in the tent and should be self sufficient for a few days free camping if the opportunities arise

Total weight of the luggage including panniers, toolbox, water, engine oil and food is about 70 kgs - I won't be riding any sand

This is the bike packed and ready to roll

Tank bag

Left pannier

Right pannier

Tool box

Folding table in black bag

Duffle

Clothes, kermit chair, shoes, waterproof liners, spare gloves, toiletries
