    This has been the best page (208) in this thread so far...
    - 6 different brands of bikes
    - Pictures of not only the campground but everything unpacked and then shown packed and loaded
    - Some dude welded frikking SKIS on his bike to ride in the snow
    - and a guy from Washington State packing a gun...

    I'm saving this page into my favorites. Pure awesomeness.

    Sciii, we need better pics of this ski set-up. I bet a bunch of us in the North would be itching to do some fabrication come November. I ride year round, so a couple outriggers would be perfect for the days I am snow bound.

    Couple of pics from my last trip on my ex army Armstrong MT500, to Ireland via North Wales.

    Home made panniers in origional army racks, top box is an old military box. Tent, sleeping bag, dry bag and mat are strapped infront of top box. Couple of those plastic tubes under panniers, one with msr bottle other with chain lube.
    Also have a front rack with tools in and sat nav mount + fog lamps.

    You guys are a riot! And yes, I am the one who usually make the beer runs :D

    And that's packed light, I usually strap camping chairs and a tent onto the top of the panniers.
