Fair enough, but its all about the packing.

How much stuff do you need anyway?
Tent
Sleeping bags
Rolls mats
1 change of clothes
a couple of undegarments
Deodrant

Job done. Fit that in a rucksack you could.

Haha nice one Jester! My mate has been all over Europe for the last 6 years, this is his GPZ900 complete with generator on the back haha. He now has welded some ammo boxes to a custom frame, it does a very good job:



Here are the ammo cans, makes stacking stuff on top much easier too:

I'm going over to the Pub on Sunday evening with Viper, we'll double check what the situation is regarding car / minibus parking and report back.

It'd be handy if everybody who is planning on bringing a car has indicated so by Sunday so that we can make sure we know numbers to that everybody can be accomodated hopefully...

Mrs Ed is acting as sherpa, bringing stuff in the car for me John and Daryl, but she ain't stopping - will leave as soon as unloaded.

Just as a reminder, if you're bringing a car as you have to much stuff or you cant fit stuff on your bike, you dont need to bring a tent or a rollmat as Liz can provide sleeping space and or a rollmat, see here

Just need to tell her you'll be wanting to use it.
