camping...

backpack while riding??

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder,
Where the fair wind blows.

Probably not. Really high center of mass.

I ride with a backpack just about everyday. I have not had any problems. Most of my time is on the street. I'm sure how it would be off road. I would think if the pack is loaded& fited properly there would not be any problems.

Yes, probably OK for a daypack style pack. I've ridden quite a bit with a daypack or over the shoulder pack, but not on the KLR.

I was thinking about a big tall frame pack with 2 weeks worth of pork and beans.
