    Hi egret,
    thanks a lot :clap:clap:clap
    We used a three-person tent from Four seasons, type "Manitoba 3". It's got enough space for us and our luggage.
    We bought it 5 years ago and it has served us well, but if I wanted to buy a tent right now, I would prefer one that's less heavy (it weights about 4.4 kilograms).
    Best regards

    Beautiful trip with great photos.

    Can I ask what luggage rack you used on the Scrambler? I am looking to fit my Scrambler with something similar.

    Thanks!

    Hello manyu,
    Roger Guhr made panniers for my Scram, here is his homepage:
    http://roger.mainufer.de/

    Roger is a former metal fabricant of Formula One team Sauber-Petronas, and he makes travel equipment since 20 years. Send him an e-mail or call him, maybe he will send the panniers to you. I think it's not a big deal.
    The cases are very resistant, made from 2mm thick aluminum plates, waterproof as well. Roger custom fits them to the bikes.

    Best regards

    All the best
