Perazzi, do you often wade into threads not involving you and shit all over everything, or is there someone here that you just can't stand?

One camping tip I read in one of Peter Eagan's columns years ago:
He would save his old underwear throughout the year, and pack it when going on a motorcycle trip. Each day, he would throw out the old skivvies. As the trip went on, there is less weight and more room for souvenirs bought along the way, and fresh new underwear waiting when he got back.

For some throwing out a few pairs of underwear along the way would be like throwing a deck chair off the Titanic in hopes it'd sink slower.


Some people under pack most people over pack and still are few others take just enough. Who cares (apparently some). I really don't care what you pack, how you pack or where you stay. But it doesn't mean you aren't going to get a bit of ribbing along the way.

PerazziMx14.
Dude, almost spat my wine. Some one bad mouthed you a few posts back but I love the repartee.
Those of us that camp are gonzo camping buggers and you with the single track are a gonzo rider bugger.!
Enjoy the restaurant in the hotel at the end of the day as we enjoy a flask around the campfire.

I put some kayak D rings on one end of my Givi Trekkers to catch the brides overflow, like shoes.

I put them in a waterproof bag and lash them on with the D rings.

When on country motorcycle trips, I stay in pubs. Old country hotels in Oz usually have low cost accommodation. They don't usually have ensuite facilities or a fridge, the toilets and showers are at the end of the hall and the bar is downstairs. They usually have a selection of meals available.

The other less preferred alternative is a motel.

3. Depends if you would visit her.

I camp but I use my 4WD to get there.

Wife and I camped out of the Jeep, Trooper and 4Runner and the BMW with a Ural sidecar towing a Kwik Kamp tent trailer.
We'd be two up camping on the solo bike early on. After her hip replacements she preferred more than 2 wheels.
We'd spend 3 week vacations in campgrounds, no hotel, motels.
I don't know that we could afford hotel/motel lodging for 3 weeks.

P38, Do you always bring your dogs with you on your camping trips? Funny looking breed.

So getting back to the OP original thread "adding capacity" this is how I do it. Vario panniers and top case:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...F&&FORM=VRDGAR


This give me the ability to add or subtract capacity without any additional external addons.
