    Had trouble keeping the bag on the rack with all the rough trail.

    Bag Contains: hammock, sleeping bag, thermals, busicuits and cream for dinner.
    I camped not much further along this trail.

    Bungee cords = lost gear and possibly lost eye. May as well put a sign on your bike that says "I am a noob".:nod

    When I go for road trips with my vintage bike, I use a set of Aerostitch panniers for all the camping gear. . . and a tank bag for clothing, rain gear, & personal kit.

    (Right Side - pannier)
    Western Mountaineering sleeping bag 35 degree down bag
    3/4 length inflatable Thermrest pad
    first aid kit fits on the top
    all packed in a waterproof liner bag

    (Left side - pannier)
    Eureka One-Man Tent, rainfly & ground cloth
    Poles for same are < 12 inches long fit in the panniers with tent

    Flashlight, pen and knife fit in the panniers' pockets.

    When the panniers and tank bag are loaded on, it makes a great wind break for making time down the road. Once you're camped the panniers come off for rides.

    Kermit chair can be strapped to the downtube from the seat to the rear shock.

    Works for me on the vintage and similar config on the G/S

    That tent is ten years older than God. Got in in the late 70's and it went into a trunk with the all of the other impluse purchased backpacking gear. The last time I used it prior to the picture was in 1986.

    I could'nt normally tell you when I last used a specific piece of gear, but I remember this one. It was on a climbing trip and my partner took a header into a [SIZE=-1]crevasse[/SIZE]. He was packing the poles and the rainfly for the tent in his pack. The fall didn't kill him, but he broke his back.

    The SAR people said that he landed on his back and that the pack (containing part of the tent) saved his life. I never used that tent again, that is until that bike trip.

    I use this one most of the time now.....

    So, when you strap bags to the Jesse tops, is it easy enough to open the bags still?

    On the way to DVDaze last year, I ran out of lean angle and ended up in this position:

    Rode another 200+ miles to get there with a rather interesting load.

    This is with the stock panniers... I've since changed to the TT 35L special set. Haven't used them when camping, yet.

    [​IMG]

    The left bag holds riding and bike gear (extra layers, cycle pump, bike cover, etc.) the right bag holds clothes, shoes, toiletries and speakers for the iPod when in camp! An H2W bag holds sleeping bag and thermarest strapped above the right pannier. The tent and kermit chair are strapped above the left pannier. A cooler containing food is held to the luggage rack with a bungie net. The left tank pannier holds about 2 liters of water, my lantern, cook set, and collapsable bucket. The right tank pannier holds hatchet, stove, water filter, cup, and Aero Press coffee maker. That leaves the tank panniers maybe 2/3 full. I suspect I'll space in both sides of the TT panniers, too.

    When not taking food with me it looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    And once set up all that can be seen is the tent... everthing else is in the vestibule while I'm out riding.

    most of the stuff in panniers to keep the weight down low, use exped dry bags inside to keep everything dry including a laptop on this trip. tent and bag with shoes/boots/sandals in. all tied down with rok straps and a cargo net to hold water bottle(s). small bag which holds stove fuel on the top.
