Hey there Buddy, those don't look to be the stock bars on that bike, and by the way, how's the seat on a trip? Cheers

The bottom pic include the stove & pipe? Looks to be a great setup for camping in the off months in these parts.

What's the set up time for all of it? Thanx.

The tipi has been great. Really makes a difference for me to be able to spread out - be warm, dry and comfortable. I have spent most of my life trying to get out as much as possible from climbing, paddling, backcountry skiing, riding - its all good. Using this enhances my experience.
It takes me about 15-20 min, to set-up or break-down - if I am using the stove.
It is a Kifaru and it is spendy. Made in the USA. Web site HERE
I've put a few other ADV rider onto these and they seem pretty happy with them as well.


You can also look into TiGoat tipis. HERE - Nicely made lower optioned (less weight) set-up.

I opted for the Kifaru 8 man tipi (7+ pounds) and med. stove, liner, mosquito netting.



The stove and pipe are in that black bag and the whole shebang fits in one ADV pannier - actually all this....

In this ONE pannier is my - 8 man tipi, stove, sleeping bag, Exped down matt, first aid kit, hat, headlamp.

Kind of a modern day Nomad set-up - deLux.

My tent is the one on the right -- Eureka Apex 2:


Here's how I pack the bike -- the red waterproof bag on the back contains tent, sleeping pad, and inflatable pillow, and the tail bag on top contains my sleeping bag, rain gear, and a few odds and ends:


Clothes and toiletries go in the saddlebags, along with a spare container of oil, tire repair kit, etc. Camera, can of chain lube, spare gloves, maps, and a multi-tool go in the tank bag.

I don't carry cooking gear with me because I just eat meals on the road.

Sweet ideas!

I've camped out about a million times but have learned some great new tips from this thread!







You get to spend time in some pretty cool places if you can break away from the pavement and motels....

My DR650 has been set up for different rides, as you see below. With the hard bags I found the weight got to be too much to ride well off road. When carrying the GIVI bags I had about 100 lbs. on board. I've gone back to soft bags and limit my load to about 65 lbs.
which enables the DR to still work OK off road, even in Baja.

If one was to fit a fork brace and steering damper, then more weight could possibly be taken on board, but off road you have to be careful.
I now have an Ohlins shock, which has helped overall performance.


DR650 in camping mode with Tecnic soft bags ($60 from New Enough), Trans-It bicycle bag for camping gear (from Performance, $25)
All waterproof and totally expendable.

Lightweight GIVI rack (4 lbs) keeps bag off pipe.

Following the Baja 1000 course in '07

DR650 in Baja with GIVI bags - too much weight for this stuff, made it OK but things got much worse.


Vstrom in camping mode w/GIVI bags with Trans-It bicycle bag - Clean, Nice and Neat!
