Loaded and Ready to Ride (Pictures)

I guess this is the place for this! Post up pictures of your moto camping set up loaded or unloaded.

Getting this started with an overpacked weekend trip.

Nice setup. It would be cool to see everything unpacked and laid out on the ground vs. packed and on the bike.

Even a Buell Blast can be a pack mule for camping if planned right :)
And that's my riding jacket, cap and helmet draped across the seat. The saddle bags were to support the Helen-Two-Wheels medium duffle. Very little in the saddle bags.

I try to keep minimalist gear on my trips, so most of the time it looks like I don't have anything with the side and top cases. But these are instances where I was packed up either more or without cases.

Zig-zagging across SE Alabama with Glenn and Shepcam...








Somewhere near Tunnel Springs, AL...




Trip to Grand Isle, LA and camping in Natchez, MS...







On a very cold and snowy ride in December 2011 on the BRP. I didn't even camp it was so cold...




On a 350 mile Dual Sport trip on my wife's XT225. I was set to camp at Cheaha on the way back home but it rained ALL DAY and I never could get warm or dry, so I just rode it home...



On a 12 day trip "Go West, Young Man" trip out west...








Camping at Elvira with Scott and Kyle...




On my "Go East, Young Man" 5 day trip to the Outer Banks, NC and then across VA to ride the BRP...





My tent, an MSR Holler 3, was stolen on the trip out west. I replaced it with a more compact and moto-friendly Kelty Salida 2. It is compact enough and has short enough poles to fit in a Givi 21 liter side case...



Disposable $0.99 plastic shower curtain ground cloth, stove/gas/cup and Eno hammock for those R&R breaks while riding...





The top case has my Academy 20 degree bag, clothes, laptop, food, etc...

For the KTM 640 Enduro I decided to go with the Bilt roll top duffle bag in size L. It's a big bag but does allow you to compress it down a good bit. It worked well and kept everything dry on the trip. I'm looking forward to a minimalist overnight camping trip soon now...



All loaded up and ready to make the 133 mile ride back to Ellijay...

Giant Loop and medium Wolfman Expedition Duffle on the KLR, this was a summer overnighter so neither was anywhere full.


Same on the KLX a little smaller dry bag.

Quite a bit of an update now that I've added the hard bags and jumped into the Helinox equipment (chair, cupholder, table, and high cot).  Just got back from 5 days in Raceland, LA and here she is packed up and ready to go:
