    I would love to see a video of all the stuff you have packed and your process to strap that all down to the bike!

    Love it!

    You guys are tough....4 of us in our 20's started out for the Baja from Yakima Wa. on highway bikes...intending to camp and ride the coast all the way …..it rains on the Oregon Coast...who knew ???

    By the time we got to Coos Bay we knew that after riding a couple hundred miles a day, we were ready for a bar, a hot shower , a steak with trimmings, and a dry warm soft bed.....no more camping out.....so we ended up giving all the camping gear to a family in a Oregon State Park...... and stayed in motels the remainder of the trip.....in addition, the bikes were a lot more fun to ride on those twisty highways without all that stuff....

    I learned a similar lesson about family trail riding …..and so after a days ride, we would return to a motorhome in the evening....when mom is happy....everyone is happy....
