    Oh really? What are the uppers made out of? The ones I've seen have been cloth (probably some sort of cotton blend?) and I had concerns about them drying out fast. The ones I've tried on have been pretty comfy. I don't know why I never pulled the trigger on a pair really.

    I made this video for how I pack my little bike. I know everyone's needs are different, but this is how I do it.

    Yes they're cloth but I figure they'd dry fast enough if necessary.

    I too run the Sanuks. Very light and comfy. Just don't plan to go on a day hike with them. They are camp and town shoes only.

    This is what I have had with me and on the bike since July 10th.

    Left side of bike:

    Sleeping bag
    Pillow
    Sleeping pad
    Stove
    Skillet
    Stove fuel

    Right side of bike:

    Tent
    Spare tube
    Cleaning wipes
    Stake hammer
    Pull straps

    Top bag:

    Clothes
    Ice chest
    Toiletries
    Bike cover

    Tent pole bag:

    Tent poles
    Stakes
    Tent straps

    Tank bag:

    First aid
    Knife
    Tire pressure gauge
    Tire filling tools
    Spare gloves
    Bandana
    Locks
    1.7liters of water


    Panniers are giant loop mototrekker
    Top bag is a sw motech 35l?
    Tank bag moskomoto scout and tent pole bag.

    Main thing I would change is the panniers. I have them filled to capacity and it just sucks to re pack them. Considering the moskomoto back country 35.

    One last note top bag is pretty much over full because I currently have 2 riding jackets on me . IMG_20200811_211620_582.jpg IMG_20200820_175320_912.jpg

    Camp, my tent is on the right.

    My bike loaded.
    [​IMG]

    I weighed everything including my riding gear, boots & helmet, and it weighed 67 pounds. That doesn't include the jesse boxes but it does include the tank bag.

    The bag on top has my sleeping bag, thermarest, pillow and tent. Both ends of that bag has good sized pockets that are water-resistant lined. The tent goes in one side and the rain fly and ground cloth goes in the other side. I also have those pockets lined with trash bags to prevent any chance of a wet tent getting my sleeping bag wet. The main portion of the bag is lined with a garbage bag too.

    One side box has my food, cooking gear, tools. The top of the box has rain gear and lightweight walking shoes. Easily accessible if needed.

    The other side box has clothes, toiletries, electric jacket liner, water, electronic charging cords and such. The top of that box has a camp chair and tiny camp table.

    In the tank bag I keep my wallet, phone, SPOT, camera batteries, and small odds and ends.

    I ride 99.9% of the time with my wife (she rides her own bike), so we split the load. We have Mosko Moto 35liter BackCountry panniers setup (v1) and ride 2 KTM 690’s. We bring enough food (3 meals/day) and water for approx 3 days:
    My load is about 55-59lbs (including the Panniers) everything but tools.
    Tools are about 15 lbs
    Her load is just under 50lbs (including the Panniers)
    We found that it doesn’t matter if we are going for a 2 day or 20 day trip, and since we are mostly in and out of the high country in Colorado & Utah, we always bring cold weather gear.

    Sharing the load between bikes is such a great thing.

    I still have mine. Have taken it everywhere, even let a friend use it at a festival and it’s still going strong. Moved to the US with it, dreading the day I have to let it go. For solo camping I have something smaller but if I’m ever out with my wife or have a car and a dog it’s a goto tent for me.
