    Here is my bike packed. 55 liters of total storage for a 7 day road trip, camping each night. 5L tank bag, 20 and 30 liter kriega drypacks. I bought the tank bag new and the drypacks used. $250 total in luggage.

    5L Givi tank bag holds first aid kit, electronics, maps, faceshield cleaner, wind breaker, sunglasses, toilet paper, and 32oz nalgene water bottle.

    20L Kriega drypack holds extra clothes, toiletries, towel, headlamp, book, and rain gear. I carry 1 extra underwear and socks, and wash each night. 1 pair of shorts or pants and sandals for camp.

    30L Kriega drypack holds tent, chair, sleeping bag, pillow, air mat, cook kit, and miscellaneous camping bits like spare batteries, bug spray, repair tape, etc.

    Tent is Big Agnes rattlesnake sl2. Chair is amazon backpacking type, pillow is Exped inflatable. Sleeping bag is DIY 2.5 Apex quilt, air mat is Thermarest Neoair regular. Cook kit is Toaks 550 mL Pot and Esbit ti-wing stove with DIY windscreen. Everything including fuel for 5 days fits in the pot.

    Most of my camping gear is from backpacking. My summer quilt is good down to 55, a bit lower with extra clothes layers. I have a 20* down quilt for colder temps, that packs about the same size.

    Didn't consider panniers? I honestly don't want to be a ass, but that has to be the worst location for weight on the bike.

    I didn't have the 500-700 for a set of racks and panniers. And this setup is under 35 lbs for everything. Less than 1/3 of the weight of a passenger.

    Well, that is pretty light for all your gear. Good luck, be safe.

    Recently got back from a trip out to Maine with the Daughter. We camped 2 up on the way out and back. No extra bags, just smart packing. 62952049-08CB-4B45-BE64-2645A32B00A4.jpeg
    Here in lake Placid.

    Bottom one in Grafton Notch. We cooked most nights. Hammock is great for extra room and keep my gear corralled at camp.

    Has anyone tried strapping any of the larger stuff to the front crashbars? Like a tent? I have seen people putting fuel cans on the enfield but have not seen any one do this with baggage.

    I believe people avoid placing sturdier stuff up front to avoid causing damage to the radiator for instance during a possible accident/tip over.

    Aw man! I had a similar load on a Gen 1 KLR with a worn out stock rear shock a couple years ago (no milk crate) . Felt raked out like I was in Easyrider or something.

    No rack, just a heatshield on the exhaust.

    Not a big fan of camping but if I really have to I'm ready :) The big roll is the double size sleeping pad, on top is a 4 person tent. All fit on the bike very well, hard to tell the difference in bike handling with that nonsense strapped on.

    2-3 days of dispersed camping. Everything fits in this 35L duffel I got on amazon. No stove or meals, but snacks, water and coffee in the tank bag. I do carry a water filter and a chair. In one pic I have a day pack strapped to the front of the duffel for hiking, but it's empty. I'm looking at a set of side holsters (with removable dry bags) though...
