Chicko its how we Roll

So I havent done a ride report for a while so I thought start this one tonight as I am off for a ride tommorrow for 5 days of shenanigans with a good mate.

I am dreaming of riding this :


however ill be riding this little piglet



given the 500km Plus of sandy tracks betwen fuel stops.. I have been messing with Fuel Options.



this one hasnt made the grade.


I had a small Drama early on in the packing phase. My pannierhave been attacked by mice


its not all bad SWMBO has said I can get a new set.



I have adapted some wolfman bags I had Laying around the she, they are smaller thn the dirt bags but work ok





TO save any Pannier fires.... (I hope) I have added some heat shield







Ive packed my meals


and some Extra Curricular Nutrition

So what is the bike that is actually under all that crap?

And whatever happened to the "travel light" theory for motorbikes?

Its a whippet... Doesn't take much to make it look like it's full


Unlike a big piggy where you can hide a bit of gear.

Mounting the plastic gas can to your exhaust pipe is just epic.
