    Tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad and pillow all go in the wolfman bag. Clothes in left case, camping/cooking gear in right case and camera/electronics/misc junk in top case.

    First trip with this bike had to tweek the saddlebags a bit with a couple extra straps, but other then that everything worked ok. Leaving my house on a nice 8 day getaway.

    This is a blast from the past - 2004 to be exact. Found this pic going through some old photos. You can tell it's ancient, because it was a very, very, very early digital camera.

    This is my old 2002 Ace 750. Big walmart tent strapped across the bars did a great job as a windshield. Big walmart sleeping bag served as a backrest. A small bag on top of that for sunglasses and other small items.
    The rack is originally a universal UJM rack for 70s bikes, but I was able to slide the mounting arms shorter and use it on the Ace easily. That let me mount an Action Packer tub (also from walmart) to the luggage rack and take the rest of my meager gear with me. I have no clue what I packed in there after all this time, but I do remember after unloading at the campsite I went back out and filled the tub with ice and beer :)

    Action Packer tubs have an element of charm that's hard to describe. A step up from a milk crate, but not too big of a step, haha. I ran one on my former V-Strom 650 for 10 years, and still have it in the garage.

    The drop bear, assigned the fictional scientific name Thylarctos plummetus, is a hoax in contemporary Australian folklore featuring a predatory, carnivorous version of the koala. This imaginary animal is commonly spoken about in tall tales designed to scare tourists.

    No, they are real!! One dropped down my brothers shirt just before climbing into his hammock one night.
    The dancing he did was Soooo comical I almost rolled out of my hammock.


    It was a twig from the tree his hammock was tied to.

    It was funny.

    I rode it west to east a few years ago (2013, wow a long time ago).

    My sister lived in a neighborhood just off of 38 and 93 in Hamilton and I left there and rode the pass on my way back to DFW via Jackson, WY.

    Trip to Sturgis, Moab, Grand Tetons & Yellowstone this summer during Covid so thought I would mostly camp and brought way too much stuff - sleeping bag/pad, pillow, tent, cot, table, chair in Expedition bags on rear seat, clothes in left bag, food/stove/misc in right bag, rain gear & heated gear & electronics in top case. Even had air pump, tire plug kit, tools and battery charger straped inside the rear crash bars. Great 4,500 mile trip but bike was just too top heavy - luckily I kept her right side up.

    Tent, pad, bag, liner, and (gasp) small chair in the cheapo wallymart dry bag. Rokstraps and it never moves. I can’t kill the darn thing, if it would leak I could replace it.
