Southern Wyoming on my way back from Yellowstone NP
My first trip on the Tiger headed to eastern Oregon for the GiantLoop ride last month. Sleeping bag and clothes on right side, tent and misc. left side, food and cooking items in top box with chair & cot in duffle bag. I never had a chance to use the fly rod since all the forests where closed due to fires.
@vfrpilot show them your organized set up
What a weird skidplate. Love the backrest pad!
Yeah that was the worst skid plate ever,dont remember the brand but the sides were riviets that kept getting loose and rattle like hell.Sold it with the bike,great bike tho.
if you insist
Look forward to seeing it Sunday.
Sunday is the day my camping set up will be developed.....
Loaded up for five days camping. Orange bag is tent, green bag is sleeping bag, pillow, mattress and extra down throw, black bag is clothes and heavy sweatshirt, black duffle shit I didn’t really need, right pannier tools, air pump and tire plugs, a quart of fuel, and camp stoves and cookware. Left side more shot I didn’t need, food snacks and water.
if I didn't carry stuff that I didn't need, I could get it all on a moped
Yep, me too. Although my excuse for this trip was that I needed to also carry a computer and work clothes.
Less stuff is less top-heavy.
In my defense I wasn’t sure where I was going to end up each night so I was prepared for dry/remote camping which in this case included a chair, table and folding shovel, and other tools and convenient items that I thankfully didn’t need to use. :)
Don't pull the table or the Kcup adapter. Or the saw or the fire starter or the..... (Other stuff I might need)
I just got back last week from a free form 2 week trip. No itinerary or plan.
I knew I was going to stay in the mountains and mostly camp. I ended up on the mabdr going north, though the Adirondacks, around lake Champlain, down through VT, and home to Asheville.... All backroads and as much dirt and gravel as I could find.
My set up has been a work in progress. This is the heaviest I'll load up. On board is food for a week, all my camping gear, tools. I saw temperatures from the high 20°s to the mid 80°s.. (so layers of clothes) One of my goals was to avoid civilization as much as possible and without a plan, I wanted to be prepared. I'm pretty happy with how it worked out. Those blue dry bags on the panniers are 15l and I was happier with running 10l with how they strapped. I need to parse the kit down a bit more still.
I pack to camp anywhere any time.
Heres a pack out for a week on the road. Could go a lot longer. You basically just have to give up cleanish clothes. But other than that everything can fit in the small side bags and one medium duffle for your tent and sleeping stuff. This is tools and spare tubes and everything else you could need on the road for a repair.
Helps to have a backpacking mindset and gear. When I am riding I can't even really tell that I have all my gear on the bike.
I kinda cheat a bit.
did you ever use the massive locks and cables?
Yeah, once. Other trips with more sketchy motel stays, I use it frequently. Force of habit had me strap it on, and on the AT, I don't notice it. Certain areas where free camping can difficult to find, I'll sometimes lock it up at trailhead and hike to a spot. If someone wants the bike bad enough they'll get it, though I'll be less likely to beat myself up then if I did nothing.
