I've been meaning to do a list of the things we are carrying. We are likely way overloaded, especially for one motorcycle. Unfortunately, there are things we both just "need" to have with us and Paula doesn't know how to ride a motorcycle. Besides, having only one motorcycle minimizes the cost of traveling and repairs. Some of the stuff we have: 15" Macbook Pro digital SLR with three lenses camera flash tripod Google Nexus 7 other assorted electronics sleeping bag MSR tent and gear shed vestibule two folding camping chairs two blow-up sleeping mats double sleeping bag two blow-up pillows MSR stove MSR cookware tools lubricants, oils, and fluids for the bike small blanket a compression sack of clothes each two camping bath towels toiletries, soap, shampoo medical kit three Pac-Safe sacs two pairs of Vibram shoes Paula's running shoes Paula's sandals my walking sandals my camp Croc sandals riding gear for each of us spare parts for the bike bag of food occasionally a bottle of wine etc... I'll have to do a more accurate list of what we have, but that generally covers it. It's pretty safe to say that we could stand to lose some of our gear. The bike is very heavy with everything that we have.
