One without the pooratech rain protection, a veritable symphony in red, black and yellow. Kit for anything between two days and two weeks - I like my little extras

10 Days to Namibia recently, no camping, two up, the one on the left is mine.
Trax 37L panniers with additional top expansion bags, 38-45L Rackpack, KTM tankbag, extra waterbottles.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Hard luggage on both, no camping equipment.
