    Transporting a DSLR camera

    DRSL cameras are wonderful but susceptible to damage from jarring on a rough ride. Do you all worry about that? What do you fellas and gals do to protect your cameras during rides?
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    I always carry my little pocket cannon as I am not a very good picture taker anyhow.

    Like you it never bothered me, it would just get thrown in the bag. However when I did Australia east to west my Olympus DSLR was not working at the end of it  :012:

    Ok, in retrospect I guess it was a rough ride, but it was a massive oversight on my part and since then I've been fairly careful.

    Same for me just lob it in possibly in a small camera bag but again they are Nikon's.  One of mine got thrown down a very steep gravel path OK only about 20 metres but very steep and the camera bounded down it with lens on.  At the time it was just about brand new (first major trip out) and it is still working now 20 years later.  SO not worried about a bit of a bumpy ride especially on 'comfort' setting.

    Yep, just lob mine in the Top box with all the lenses but in a padded bag.

    When I travel with the SLR I take an assortment of lenses and related stuff.  During those times I devote an entire side pannier bag that I have fittrd a compartmentalized unit made for camera cases.  Between this unit and the pannier case I have lined hi-density foam.  Between the Trophy and the previous bike I have been through all 48 lower states this way without issue.
    Not quick to access but then I generally have a smaller waterproof camera in my jacket pocket.

    Thanks for your input.
