Golden Oldie! About 2002 from Cape Town to Durban. approx. 370 kg dead weight on a long road trip with a few steel parts in the ammo boxes....... Appropriately titled "Travel Light" I remember the front wheel came up real easy in 1st and 2nd. Once cruising speed was reached 120-140 solid as a tank. Total storage space approx. 270 litres

Those BMW Airheads get VERY jittery front wheels when you load them like that!
The need tank mounted saddle bags to spread the weight better.

EDIT:
My big boxer loaded for the recent  :ricky: trip around Lesotho:
(Credit Card Camping, so no tent or sleeping bags!)

I've since resolved to ditch the tank bag due to refueling hassles.
I'm looking to buy tank saddle bags.

My trippie sal erg kark wees as ek my bike so moet laai.
Gelukkig is ek 100% maplotter so vat altyd net die stel klere saam wat ek aan het,kortbroek en t-shirt  plus spaar onderbroeke en sokkies. Daar is nie sprake van skeergoedjies en sulkes nie. :mwink:
So lig as moontlik,min is meer vir my. Daar moet ook altyd plek wees vir my bottel soetes van Vinkrivier se wereld niks OB kak nie.

Tent en opblaas matras slegs een keer gebruik, kamp stoel ook slegs net een aand gebruik (Dit was toe nie nodig nie want ons het nie gekamp nie), te veel klere in gepak, dit was toe nie so koud gewees nie ;D, sal volgende keer 'n kleiner kamara neem, die ding vat die helfte van my tank bag se spasie.

Fokkit manne, vat julle nie te veel goed saam?
Ek het mettertyd die kleinste moontlike tent, opblaas matras, kussing, en warme slaapsak wat "dun" opvou aangeskaf. Het op die trip nie eers a tankbag nodig gehad. Fiets het lekker hanteer en kon met hom speel in die sand + hoops waar die kans hom voorgedoen het. Geen stoele - sit g.t neer op klip, ens
Sheet...hoe verlang ek nou na daai GS - die ding het mos geen insthouding gevra! Die HP is nou egter 'n ander storie....
