     :046: I over packed for the last one.  Planning for a week on the road.  What would you take with you?

    Clean socks, underwear and shirts for each day and a pair of pants for every 3-4 days depending on temps.  I usually take one long sleeve T shirt per week, seem to have at least one cool day per week. That and a comfortable pair of walking shoes.

    In Texas, at least one change of underwear per day, and at least one of the moisture wicking shirts per day, and never pick a route that has a lot of cities with stoplights or you'll need all the Trophy's remaining GVWR for WATER!  :745:

    I always pack a pair of underwear for each day, a shirt and pair of pants for every 2 days. Also, I pack for a refresher bag of toilettries. Phone charger isn't needed anymore since I drive a mobile generator.
    Oh, and I pack a USB hard drive and laptop for the TomTom Bandit to offload to. I do charge these every night, so I bring 2 USB chargers along.
    Last year I had enough with the two pannier bags on the BMW K1300GT. The trophy's panniers are a bit more spacious.

    Can't get that image out of my head.  Oh right, it took up some room being occupied by something a lot less pleasant, so it's all good! :008:

    Seemingly we're all just typical males - and then we complain about our pillions' packing habits! A bit of washing powder for the soft stuff is much lighter to carry than any daily supply of shirts, socks, underwear, whether for a week or a month-long trip....
    We met a couple on a Sprint ST at the ferry crossing to Hull this weekend. They were up from Brighton, for ten days, but had one small top-box only, for all their clothes. It was the hottest weekend in Scotland, and both were clearly very clean!
