I was gunna just click “ like”, but that’s too easy. You are 100% correct. We rode what we had, with the clothes we had (much of it from Army Surplus stores) with old leather saddle bags, canvas bags, shitty tents or home made swags. . . and often on Jap roadies. “Adventure Riding” is a modern, bullshit term to sell products. If you left a city or big town on your bike in Australia you were adventure riding.
