many folks use tarps, including myself. gives you a dry place to eat and drink if it's raining! sure, takes a bit of room on the bike, but the comfort it provides on a rainy night is priceless!

I use a tarp 100% of the time. Often gets setup first and last taken down. Mine is a cheap Taiwan made camo 13x10, packs about the size of a 1 litre bottle.

I believe the tarp in the tent pic above is a Kelty Noah. Nice tarp for 60 bucks...

Here it's packed for a 6 day ride with my Wife...i try to scale down, but am not successful (especially with the Wife )



In the yellow bags - BA two person sleeping bag (great !), bike cover, rain suits, electric liners, REI camp pillows, REI towels.
Right saddlebag Wife's, left for me.
Large duffle - Redverz tent, JetBoil, food, tarp,extra gloves etc...
Two rolls on the top are the REI Camp Bed 3.5 mattresses...here is what
i wish I could pack smaller.

And unpacked..





BTW, even though it doesn't fit everyones needs and wants, the Expedition II is a great tent

Cheers,

Well then, from the looks of your setup, you should have plenty of money left.

550 or 450? I love those yellow Bergs.

That's how you teach womenfolk to pack light. I tell my fiance, "EVERYTHING you're taking besides camping equipment has to fit in this ONE bag. If it don't fit, it don't go"

She found her priorities real quick

The picnic table was from Touratech. It was expensive but they had it in stock. It folds up small.

The tarp allowed me to have my bourbon and cigar outside in the rain. Priceless!

It also allowed me to set up the tent in a light rain without getting wet.

Could you give up the name of that sleeping bag? Is there any insulation?

Hm...


Three weeks with wife through Turkey and Georgia.

Left pannier: all clothing, including shoes and a hairdryer.
Right pannier: rain overals, spare fuel pump , maps, some food.
Rack pack: tent, two sleeping mats, two sleeping bags.

Right pannier and the rack pack were not full, there was still room for more stuff.
