packed for a 5 weeks camp trip
loaded for 2up
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.
Neat and Tight:
Bungee cords = lost gear and possibly lost eye. May as well put a sign on your bike that says "I am a noob".
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
Set up for 2-3 weeks OTR
Not shown (but on bike): Jetboil and Coffee press. Laptop, cell phones (chargers), DSLR, 1st Aid Kit, tool kit, tire kit.
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.....
Sometimes this one..
Or this one.....

Or this one....
Or, on a warm day...
To much tent information? I've got more.
So, when you strap bags to the Jesse tops, is it easy enough to open the bags still?
Two up and camping gear. Everything was packed inside bags from Helen Two Wheels.
At Barbor in 2006
At Deal's Gap during the same trip
Hubba Bubba two person tent..recommend a three person tent when two up.
make that...DOES NOT....
Taken last week during my first camping trip out on the bike ever :)
Just before leaving (packed for 1 up riding)
Taken during a stop (2 up riding at this point after picking my mate up, so more luggage had been added)
Our homemade home-sweet-home
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.
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:
And once set up all that can be seen is the tent... everthing else is in the vestibule while I'm out riding.
This was my SV 650 packed for a 4 week camping trip
What kind of tent and cot do you have there? Got any more pics?
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.
What kind of bags are those on your side panniers? are they water proof/resistant?
no that ain't mine, that is alot of shit though. But then again those corbin bags suck and he probably only has his lunch in there.
