Remember when packing for trips, not everything needs removed from bike and carried around long distances to the hotel rooms etc...
I realized this last night when I had to carry a HEAVY bag and other stuff from garage parking through Harrah's way down a long hall, ride elevator up a floor then carry it all down a LONG hall again, and this morning the same thing but in the other direction just as far to get to the wing again.
Let's see now.
50 packs of cheese, 4 rolls of Ritz crackers, large jar of peanut butter, canned chilli, canned Ravioli, and other similar items, all in the bottom of my main bag under the clothes.
Think maybe I could have left about 20 lbs of stuff out there on the bike last night perhaps LOL
I had all that stuff as part of my survival supplies for that 2 day bus ride out to San Jose, CA. to pick up the 95 1500. I ate lots of things I carried, that's just what was left over I have not ate yet and good for snacks on the road still or camping.
Perhaps it's time to repack the bag and just leave some stuff on the wing all the time, you think?
Riding the bus I needed it all packed in the bags to carry for when I changed buses of course, I just never took it out yet.
Now to find a nice desert area to camp a night or two and eat that stuff so I don't have to haul it around anymore LOL
