Thanks Tezza
I do indeed mate. Just got somewhat carried away and posted it.

Full disclosure: obviously the Kriega stuff is a shoe-in (although, I'd be a Kriega fan-boy any way, having pretty much exclusively used their gear for many years - long before becoming professionally involved with the company). Same goes for the dinky V2 Visor Cleaners. Even then, every piece of gear in the photo (and the stuff bolted onto my bike... but that's a whole different thread!) was bought purely cos I believe it to be the best / most appropriate gear I could find / afford. Sure, a $700 Big Agnes tent (for example) would be nice. But not right now.

That said, I will admit to having been ever-so-slightly influenced by the fact that Snugpak is made a few miles up the road from my birthplace in Yorkshire, and is a supplier to the British Military. Also that a Kriega dealer brings it into the US. Mike, the dealer in question, also happens to be retired USMC and big-time survivalist (not to mention a fellow Inmate and a top bloke). He swears it's the best shit he's ever used (which is why he imports it). And thus far, I'm inclined to agree.

I enjoyed putting the breakdown together and hope it's of use to you. Feel free to lemme know if you need any more detail on any of the gear.


Cheers,



Michael

Oh, you mean a bike that you can pack like a mule and travel all over the world?

Yeah, what's the point in that
