hey cruz, still the budget setup. the kriega 10L tail bag for one day trips, then just strap down the 30L dry bag with everything in it including a jerry can of fuel. it will be changing though, got a camping trip coming up so weighing up whether to go the giant loop bag, or cut slots in the plastics with a dremmel and just strap some extra dry bags on the sidepanels roughly like the setup above. how does the 570 compare? well i'm kinda biased as i've fallen madly in love with the beast. for dirt roads to gnarly stuff its great. on bitumen its tolerable but i dont like doing more than about 10km of tar. but then i felt the same way on the DR650 too. it will be better once i gear it up though. running 14/45 at the moment and she cruises nicely at 90kmh. i'm going to go 15/45 on the cush drive rear wheel i've got for adv riding and i think she'll be happy doing 100kmh then for extended periods without that buzzy over revving feeling. then put a 48 on the stock wheel for dirt riding.
