This thread is not for how little or how much you load onto your bike.  :deal:

This thread is to show your camp set up and how it fits onto your bike.  :ricky:

My set up for camping, its always the same, one night or a week.  :mwink:

The first two is on a trip from Cape Town to Namibia.
The second set is Cape Town to Mozambique.
Not a fan of big boxes/luggage systems.
DO NOT FOLLOW WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD.
GO INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL.

I use the tank bag for camera's etc and the saddle bag for tent , mattress and sleeping bag. the two side panniers for clothes , food and refreshments. Bag on the carrier plate tools spare tubes etc, first aid and pump under the seat. Total weight of soft luggage loaded  approx. 25 kg's.





ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

My wife worked for a Toyota dealer at the time as a sales manager and she had a lot of stickers.
OK and I am a Toyota owner. That model was just as reliable as the two Toyotas I have but MUCH
more economical!!

Comparing modes of transport in Tanzania and a typical camp setup usually in the grounds of a backpacker. Going on a long trip means having to setup camp quite differently. Organisation saves a lot of time. The panniers we made ourselves, the ones on the market suck. These come off the bike and open up with compartments made up to house specific things be it electronic goods, spares, camping goods, stove, food or socks.. all in it's place.

LOL, It was all thanks to a really great local artist in Malawi..had it painted at Cool Runnings in Senga Bay. I must say it was great riding through Africa on a bike in big, bold African artwork.. I still have the plastics in the garage somewhere but when I got back and stripped the bike for a bit of TLC i put on new ones..
