And some folks just take wayyyyyy too much shit.
Looking at some pix here I can't help thinking some guys would be better off taking a truck. Those overloaded bikes must handle like a barge. Unpacking and repacking must take hours.
Depends what you pack and the weight of it. I can personally look inside my bags and know that most of it couldn’t be any lighter. Size is one thing , as long as it’s not making the bike wider than it already is the only thing holding you back is skill and or fear.
I remember a guy in another thread talking about how light he packs , less tools , no tent etc , not leaving the pavement and stays in hotels and I remember thinking to each is own. I hate riding on the pavement , and I will take this bike where no truck will venture and in doing so I’ll be bringing tools and spare parts you won’t cause walking out of the middle of nowhere is not an option.
Sorry for the rant but when I hear people make statements like that I have no idea of where you ride , your ability or how far off the beaten path you want to go to get there. It’s not a pissing contest either just an observation that everyone’s idea of adventure is as different as their ability. There’s no problem with this either.
Enjoy the ride
My R1200GS handles the same loaded or unloaded... one of the reasons I love it and the electronic suspension... with the exception of picking it up :)
I’d rather bring a little extra and be prepared and comfortable.. trying to take off wet gear in a little tent sucks... I always bring the Redverz now and don’t mind the extra size... Along with my Helinox Cot Max...

While I find this statement amusing, I'll wait till I see bikes with firewood packed on them to agree with you.
Anybody pack firewood on their bike?
All included for a two week trip in Europe. I brought 13kg's (28lbs) of stuff including the weight of the panniers!
Headed for an overnight at birch creek. On Skiatook lake.
After 40 backroad miles and about twenty gravel miles.
Never packed this bike for an overnight before so overall I was very happy with the balance and how nothing moved around.
Hope you're planning on being outta there by tomorrow night...the forecast is NOT good...
Yes. I saw that. Be out of here around noon. Hope that's early enough.
Three week trip to Deadhorse AK, everything needed for dry camping packed on the bike.
Love this! I traveled all over on my gen 1 SV650.
Overnight camping trip to CA Lost Coast
Packed for 2 nights of camping in the NV desert
Atlanta to Alaska with dad in 2011-he was 70 at the time, and he told everybody. LOL "I am seventy years old, you know...and have had 3 heart attacks...let's ride!"

Has anyone hauled a smaller dirt bike (250cc/under 300 lbs) behind a big moto, like a liter plus sized street bike? Is that a reasonable idea for a long haul, or just a nutty idea? There must be some sort of rule of thumb, towing moto weight/towed payload. Wondering mind wants to know.
Weekend trip up to Lindy's landing.

Ours is the front AT fully packed, two up for a multi year RTW trip, including a full camping ensemble. We are now 14 months in. The rear AT is our Aussie friend fully packed for an Australia to Greece trip. We met in the fabled Karakoram mountains, Pakistan. What on earth do people pack?
I have to downsize, this is for a one nighter
