I've run Jesse's on my 'Strom for 39K miles without a single complaint and will be putting them on the Tenere. Probably ordering a set this week. Though I might want to get a license plate on the bike first

RockyDS,


Man, I did not see your post until right now. I feel as though I came-back to this thread about 100 times during the 24 hours after I posted. But, I still managed to miss it.

I really appreciate the pic and link...thank you. I couldn't get the linky to work, but hope that you will post some more pics of your bikes, soon. You're a lucky guy.

Thanks again...

I have the Odyssey II Jesse's on mine which don't seem to be beveled in quite as much. He claims that the bevels add strength. Imagine a cardboard box. If you push on it in the middle with your thumb, the box will give. However, if you push at one of the corners its much stronger. Even as a very happy owner, I think he could tone down the bevels a bit to provide a little more storage space. That minor nit pick aside, I absolutely love my Jesse's.

Certaintly the Jesses are great luggage.....BUT....... I don't want to carry the weight of heavy luggage on my Adv. Tourer. AS always YMMV!

Regards, Paul

Those are really nice bags but when you are doing a 30 day round trip and camping you need more storage for luggage

and if you are going to blog along the way which means multiple cameras, laptop and power adapters than my TraX will do just fine

If Ken sold food on the Wolfman site I'd eat it. Love wolfman stuff...and the more I think about it, the more it seems like hard luggage isn't really a necessity for me anymore, at least for side cases.

I don't think it gets tidier than that right there....in terms of soft.

I don't think I agree about the 30 day thing....if you pack for 4 you pack for 400. I"m not a black belt at that yet--but I'm working on it. A footlocker for a year in Iraq...made me realize I can live that way on an MC too...it just worked in India...getting smaller.

Get back to the basics of motorcycle travel.

It will set you free.

Right?

I come here to dream.

When Susan and I go away on the bike, we just pack a change of clothes for the weekend, which is not really the subject, but just saying, we pack light on the Harley, which has small saddle bags.

The more luggage space you have...the more you're going to pack it.

I would love to take a long trip with you guys so I could learn to pack light

Camping equipment, my camera and computer, an extra pair of comfortable sneakers, a few clothes (I wash them as I go along and dry them on the bike as I ride ) and my bags are full

How do you guys manage?

This is how I packed on my 24 day cross country trip in 2010, not too much stuff and I had full camping gear with me




I certainly don't pack like this guy

The challenge for me is always the footwear, takes up a lot of room...and how much camping equipment do you need? That shit is so bulky that even a bivvy shelter, sleeping bag and mat are big...that's hard to deal with.

Now only 2 pairs of skivvies and 1 extra change of clothes. See "got dirt" shirt in EVERY India photo...I think that's the ticket. Skimping on tools is something I have a problem with too--always too many tools.

On the S10 though I solved some of that by cutting a door in the tray under the passenger seat.
