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

What's the big round circlular tool with the protruding hex?
It looks like the perfect hand tool to remove my 19mm front axle.

Congrats on being able to take that much time to ride and camp.

Couple questions about your kitchen gear. Are those two MSR stoves alike and use those fuel canisters? Why all the pots and pans?

This is the setup I used for 2 years on the road in Latin America. All soft luggage, I really like the Wolfman panniers. For me this is only improved with the addition of the Giant Loop Mojavi which I'm using now for tool kits and tubes.

Here I'm carrying extra fuel, drinking water, and food for an extended stay out in the bush.

Questions about gear

The three aluminium tools are made by Marc parnes ?? In the USA - the round item with hex protrusion is an oil filter tool and the smaller hex tool a front axle removal tool for bmw gs
The other item is an ignition coil puller tool

[IMG][/IMG]

The MSR stoves are both whisperlite universal models that run on bottled isobutane / propane gas, kerosene or gasoline

I have found gas to be more convenient than liquid fuel which can get a bit messy - it produces a lot of soot and you invariably end up smelling like fuel which isn't great when cooking dinner (liquid fuel would be the way to go when gas bottles can't be bought)

Why all the pots and pans?? - a man has to eat
I like to cook and eat "proper food" so like the convenience of two stoves and a frypan and saucepan - this gear is very lightweight and isn't as big as it looks in the pictures - the bowls pack inside the saucepan which packs inside the frypan....

WOW... 6 months on the road in Aus. Thats awesome mate. Any plan in direction? Clockwise/Anti?

Good luck.

If you end up in Brissie, throw me a PM, always keen to meet Aussie riders and have a chat.

I have my countdown set for 21/04/2015 where the bike gets packed and the road is indefinite... so will be good to hear some stories of your Aus adventures!!

CHAOS OUT!

Right case is for my clothes and netbook. Left case is for girlfriend clothes.
The camping equipment is in the rear black bag.. three-person tent, two air mattress, two sleeping bag, two silk liners, two pillows, two Alite chairs, complete cooking equipment, some dehydrated food for emergency, and a pocket shower (10 litres, can also be used as a waterbag).
And a small Moka to make *real* espresso ;)

Neat, clean set-up Skizzo.
What size is that rear top bag with all your camping gear?
Thanks.
