Here's a bunch of photos..
The first is my KLR in current state (last summer) when camping.. My stuff all fits in the bags, so anyone who would look at my bike when I'm camping wouldn't have a clue if I just rode 1000 miles, or from around the block.. I was gone for 5 days, and nothing was visible on the outside of the bike.. Luggage is the key..



Same trip, later in the trip, and the bike's fully loaded.. Nothing visible but my helmet and jacket laying on the bike while wandering around Ashland, Wisconsin..



Just to show what a TRUE PROFESSIONAL packs like, this is Dr. Gregory Fraiser's bike at the Very Boring Rally in Duluth a couple years ago.. This guy has ridden this bike around the world, more than once.. That's Greg walking away in the red shirt, in the background.



How my KLR used to look before panniers.. Wolfman Alpha Bag.. The red thing is a chair.. The yellow bag only has a sleeping bag in it, so it wasn't a bunch of weight up high..

Here's a photo of 60/40 (member here) when we were up in the UP of Michigan..



Here I'm on my way to a Guzzi Rally on my BMW.. Everything but my sleeping bag (again, in the yellow bag) is inside the saddlebags.. Tent, air mattress, clothes, etc..



And here's a bunch of us at Aerostich in Duluth a couple years ago..



A few years earlier, before the Pelican top case..





And here's a true adventurer.. I met him at the Walmart in Prairie Du Chien, WI a few years back.. He had recently retired and he was out riding and camping as cheaply as possible, looking for day work to pay for gas.. He was just out for a couple weeks from central Indiana and was riding to the headwaters of the Mississippi in MN.. He had camped in a shelter house the night before, sleeping on a picknick table.. He was at Walmart to buy a warmer sleeping bag.. :)
