my new to me KLR,and my sons 78 xl250
Here's my sexy beast on our first solo trip. Luggage is just some stuff I had laying around, but it held up well. The sleeping bag made a nice ass pad when I had to stand on the pegs!
Here's my old Aprilia Mana packed up for a 10-day trip to the SE. Dry bag full of clothes and my Kermit chair strapped to the back seat, camping gear in the topbox, and tools, food, and assorted sundry items in the side bags.
And, here's my current ride, set up for a 5-day trip up north. I can pack a lot more on the RT utilizing the built-in storage as well as using a larger top box (52L on the RT vs. the 46L on the Mana). The only thing not in enclosed storage on the RT is my Kermit chair and an extra pair of shoes.
Sometimes I have trouble warming up to certain color schemes,such was the case here,but the more I look at it the more I like it.
The mis-matched top box kinda makes it.
30 Tecate's, a load of firewood and good food for a week put me on the ground.
I'd like to meet you there.
Yeah, BMW doesn't give folks much choice of colors for the RT -- what shade of gray would you like? In my case, "we'll just mix all the drab colors together and put some swooshes on there." Thanks, Motorrad.
Here are a couple from my trips...
Camping on the Road Rocket...
Heading North with friends on my R80st...

Just to prove you don't need all the latest kit to go touring, Graham has done 100,000 miles with this bike and still rides it today.
Down in Kent, with my M33 and Pav41

1972 Moto Guzzi Eldorado - James Bay Road, Northern Quebec

Kev and Nick, I am duly impressed. Touring on those old bikes must take some fortitude that I don't have. And mechanical ability that I lack. Good on ya.
Dave, they were "new" bikes once, so back then they would have been used like we use them now, nothing has changed, so why not use them like they were intended to be used
I love to see those older bikes getting used like they were meant to be. The Speed Twin was unexpected and appreciated. And your BSA? Beautiful.
I love that M33 and PAV. That looks like a super rig.
I've used a trailer a few times, but Casey was never terribly fond of it, and is now too weak in the rear end to jump in. Perhaps I'll do some modifications (ramp or something) and try again.

Probably not a hard decision if one is being shot at. ����
