What and how do you pack for two if camping on a GW. Can it be done without a cargo trailer. It seems we just have enough room for clothes in the saddle bags, trunk, and trunk top bag. That leaves no room for tent and sleeping bags.

We would like to make about a week long trip to Colorado, approx. 2500 RT, without having to motel every night.

I know the feeling. I'm working on fitting the camping gear on the CB550 for an over nighter here. Some good ideas and advice so far.

not sure if you call it the same over there but we have a thing called a greedy rack, it basically fits to the back of the bike and provides a shelf for putting some more items on like tents

Looks like I've already missed a couple of good threads that were already going. And maybe we just pack too many clothes.
