Thought about the dri-bags, and even have one already..... but the U-shaped cordura bag appeals to me for some reason.... mainly because I can have all the camp gear concentrated in one bag, whichbeeasily brought out from the "camp stuff store place" in our exercise room and quickly strapped down.... then off you go! It's also easily dismountable and brought inside when we do motel it.With the detachable sidecases and the u-bag, only two trips and I've got everything off the bike and inside..... would work when we tent, too......
I love the ST1300. In many ways she's the perfect bike, but not the ideal two-up camping platform I have to admit. But simplicity in itself is attractive to me these days..... going far with little, that's my ideal! And on the ST, going with little is the only option....
Funny how things change.... back in the days when dinosaurers roamed the earth. Red and I toured on a Suzuki 750 GS!Don't know how we did it! Leather jackets fromSears, blue jeans, army boots! Rain gear? Naw, we'd just hide outunder a bridge, or get wet! I remember I'd strap one sleeping bag w/stuff sack to the front forks! Musta seen too many "Here Comes Bronson" episodes....! Went all the way up the Icefield Parkway that way.... we were so enchanted by the Canadian Rockies we didn't even notice the discomfort.......
