I've completely rethought my solo setup and will post a pic of it in action as soon as I can.

Groovy!
Here`s my briefest campsite ever. Threw my tent up in the middle of an instant storm above Quincy CA. First time I`ve ever seen hail and lightning in combination with each other! Half hour later everything calmed down and we decided it might be prudent to drop a couple thousand feet in a hurry.

Prince Edward Island. Right on the beach, bushes/grass up to the handlebars to get in. One of the best campsites of my life, glad the DR got me there.

I've gone camping with road bikes, but I really like the DR650 much more as a camping vehicle - it is so much easier to go almost anywhere when on a bike that is off-road capable.

All loaded up, just arrived at a nice quiet camp site:

You can't beat a nice sleep in the middle of nowhere with no one else around.

Nothing wrong with setting up at a camp ground of course:

Was doing some single track with a bunch of guys, even took a change of shoes:

Well, for the back wheel at least, the front didn't chew out much on the road so I wasn't so worried about swapping that over.

Last year I went to a motorcycle rally on my ST1300, but it was muddy and slippery and this year I'll be taking the DR650 instead.
I've ditched the saddle bags in the pictures above, change to some Wolfman bags.

Great thread :2_thumbsup:
First "big" trip on the new DR. Three night road/camping trip a couple weeks ago. 1500km in three and a bit days. Bike was awesome :biggrin: Stock seat.... Well, we managed to get through it but our relationship may not be a long one!
