The best bit was, that after packing all that gear, the only place he could find room for his sat nav was in the chin guard of his lid.



and I'm not kidding.

I've known people to cut their toothbrushes in half to save space in their rucksacks when on expeditions.
This bloke obviously isn't one of them.
(I mean, his sleeping bag is in a Stuff Bag. It should be at least half the size it is.)

It's a wonder he doesn't have a Belfast Sink hanging off the tail. green smile

Yours looked pretty much like that when we did Spain a few years ago Rosco. But I bet he isn't carrying a full size football or a torque wrench in there.

That's not a bad effort then. Cool 
It still reminds me of The Beverley Hillbillies though. Very Happy


(I didn't realise it was a forum member's bike, I thought it was a random from somewhere and fair game for a bit of ripping the piss. Laughing )

He does . . . It's doubling up as the right hand side pannier, which is why it can't be seen in the pictograph . . . hilarious

We all start somewhere and learn very quickly what's hot and what's not.
I'm still a past master at taking 'too much'.

Irrelevant story and pic:
In 1982 a friend, his wife and I embarked on an epic journey in South Africa on two bikes. Admittedly, I did take some of their luggage, but it was a camping 'adventure'.
The pic is of my mate's wife riding my bike, I'm fearlessly riding pillion - taking the pic with my Kodak 110 Instamatic (fitted puurfectly in my dungaree's pocket/pouch) pmsl 
We were on our way home from a rally where we had bought some proper leather jackets from a new brand called Hein Gericke.

mine was a lot neater on the ride down, but it was impossible to get all the stuff I brought back into the panniers. everytime id think id done it I found ( or should I say alex or paul handed me) something else. good job I brought plenty of bungee ropes.
