we will be taking, 1 tent, 1 inflatable mattress, 2 inflatable pillows, double sleeping bag, weekends worth of clothes and bits n bobs( in panniers
+ tailpack) .
Like I said we've got that lot 2 up before now, but Matts been going to rallies for yrs, so has lots of bike camping experience.
I am slowly catching up, but like you, I have a limit to how much i feel safe with. Makes ya feel a bit wobbly if your not used to it. Which is why we spread the load now, and doubt his hip can take that much weight now anyway, if i was to sit on the back with it all.


the only thing I won't be taking...apart from the kitchen sink is a pair of hair straightners....lol


oops bit of a derail there

If we're coming (Not 100% yet), then Sam will be in the car, as Lupo moves around too much to be pillion, and Mina's feet don't reach the footpegs yet.

Eh? Thats not a lot of stuff. I will dig out a photo of my mates XJR with (If i remember)

2 camping chairs
tent
DUVET
Pillows
Clothes
Airbeds
and a unicycle
2 up to Wales. Wide load he was.

I have seen a few bikes that carry the tent straped to the mirrors on the front of the bike!!!
