    How about boxes? I put these 20mm ammo cans on my DR 3 years ago (you'd think I might have newer pictures, these were the night I bolted them on). They are heavy but very rugged. I do about a weeks worth of grocery shopping in one trip when I am camping.

    Rollie Bags by wolfman, for serious offroad work:

    The Giant Loop Mojave looks pretty cool too. I went wolfman because I can tailor the load, it's a really secure system, and it's water proof.

    YMMV:freaky

    On my 530 I use a Giant Loop, best hard core off road luggage system out there in my opinion. No metal parts to bend break, holds everything very secure (nothing moves or shifts around allowing you to actually ride your bike like a dirt bike while fully loaded). That's the original bag pictured, I just updated to the newer Giant Loop Coyote bag :clap

    Here's my TTR carrying the GL Coyote. My tent, mattress and sleepingbag are all in there, but i ended up carrying the sleeping bag in a drysack, and some clothes in the GL.

    I like your setup! I also have the 1 1/2 gal Kolpin gas can, and was thinking about running the smaller Moose soft expedition bags, and putting the Kolpin gas can under one also. How is it working out?

    I've Cycleracks on both KLR650 and KLR250; pannier set transfers between bikes seamlessly and conveniently.

    Can't provide a better image than the manufacturer; scroll down for the picture of Cyclerack with saddle bags and top bag (I do NOT use an extra set of saddle bags as tank panniers, as shown):

    Oh, yeah; full disclosure: My Cyclerack luggage isn't entirely waterproof; YMMV!

    I really like the Wolfman gear, I replaced the Beta rear bag with the waterproof Expedition dry line duffel bag but haven't taken a pic yet. Like the bag Govesd has in his pic, but I think the one I got is bigger? The spare gas can is the RotoPax. The gas tank saddle bags are great for blocking the wind and easy access for getting a drink.

    Cheers
