....or how to pack as much SH** on a bike




Can’t believe home much crap people think they need.
Last year half the group i went riding with down the west cost had to mail SH** home or just dump it.
Guess the military taught me something.

I love Eureka Alpenlite. I keep the laptop on the right...no muffler heat...clothes on the left, big bag on back of bike is for different riding clothes and sleeping bag, smaller bag is the tent. Top case for cameras and drinks and other small stuff.

And this included a big 4 season 3 man tent, shaving kit, candle lantern, knife, sleeping bag, therma rest, stove, 1L fuel, big tripod, DSLR and kit, laptop, spare chargers for everything, cables, chain lube, spare tube, tire irons, tools, food, H2O, clothes, rain gear, spare goves, etc etc.

For 2 up (as we had been for a few days before this) add 1 x sleeping bag, pad, and a small sack of clothes. Not a huge deal.

Cheers,
VI
