Pissed cant post pics!

hi guys and gals,
im a big fat brit pie monster so i need a big fat bike, a big fat tent, a big fat chair, a big fat bag and a big fat air mattress.
varadero, khyam biker, full size folding chair.
one tip would be not to bother spending a lot on some gear, a decent tent is one thing but if i needed some room in my luggage i wouldnt hesitate to ditch the chair, airbed, some old t-shirts, my old camping trainers(sneakers to you colonials) that kind of thing.
i would like to post a few pics but it wont let me because of "upload errors", my jpegs are well inside the size limits so whats going on?

Get yourself a free Photobucket Account and load them from there. I got the same error.

This still leaves enough room for my borrowed In & out tray for food on top and other things you want to keep cold and dry...
I LOVE the rack! The little grill thing with the fuel burner and the grill with the coffee pot... love it. Wow.

Is that homemade or something you can link me to?

Thanks Snooze,

I made everything myself. Has worked out very well. All folds/breaks down and fits in the lid of one Jeese bag.

Ya, built it myself. Took the parts of a Bike Tight and a Yakama tray and then welded together a mount for everything. It lasted through some pretty tough stuff on this last trip.

Silly question, how do you get into your right side pannier? It looks like a side opening box.

thats great mate, it makes my rolled break down dural windsheild look agricultural!
you should market it somehow you would easily sell every one you could make, or sell drawings for it at least, theres one customer here already!
i dont have ally panniers, and different brands are all different sizes anyway so it would be handy to have drawings to adapt
