    Yeah, thanks :-) I made my own luggage rack on a rear seat base to hold two backpacks on the sides and a duffel on top. That way I have a waterproof system (30l backpacks and 60l duffel from Overboard) that I can move to my bicycle, and carry with me if I do day hikes (or more) away from the bike. And fit all my fishing gear All at a fraction of the cost of e.g. ortlieb, and with a whole lot more versatility.

    I posted about the rack in the "make your own farkle" thread on advrider.

    It's like 75 pages long by now. Good thing it's a weekend, so you don't have to take time at work to read it!

    I recently sold a TLR so I could buy an Aprilia Futura because I thought that would be a better choice for touring.

    The TLR is an amazing bike, loads of fun to ride. The Futura is dull by comparison even though they're both litre twins =D(

    Wish I'd manned up and built my own luggage farkle now!

    Motorcycle's and Hammocks....great combo.
    Loaded my DRZ400S with my gear for a recent overnighter http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=814111

    One side bag carries, Hammock/Tarp/UQ, stakes & lines with camp shoes and shower bag.
    Other side bag carries, Wiggy's blanket &/or TQ, cook kit, clothes (one change) with room to spare.
    Seat bag holds Kelty 9x9 tarp, floor tarp, food and snacks with Kermit on the seat.

    I mostly now travel with a REI Flex Lite Chair that fits in the seat bag which is really compact and sturdy http://www.rei.com/product/829239/rei-flex-lite-chair instead of the Kermit. This set up, other that a few extra clothes, is my main traveler set up for overnight to five weeks either on the DRZ or GS.

    I plan on doing some hammock camping with my bike, in fact that's one of the main reasons I decided to buy a hammock.

    My usual trips have been ride bike out to park... Hike trail, sleep, hike back to bike and ride home... Scenic routes as often as possible... So the pack just gets strapped onto the bike with saddlebags holding just a few things that I don't want smooshed in the pack when I strap it down... Just bought a sissy bar for the bike so I hopefully won't have to smash everything down and can just fasten my redwing to the sissy bar and away I go... Hammock gear just makes sense because there is no hard poles limiting what shape the pack can be and how long something has to be... I like that its all soft stuff(other than stakes) that can be smashed and pushed into areas that usually you couldn't with tent gear...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    Buy, Try, Learn, Repeat

    Now there's a man with good taste. I have a DRZ and a Wee Strom. In fact it's a white '09 too. I haven't tried to fit much luggage to the DRZ yet but I'd be hard pressed to give up the Kermit.

    Thank you Sir, I do enjoy the DRZ, a 2011 by the way, and the long distance ability of the R1150 GS. I too was hard pressed to give up the Kermit but finally found a very light weight, compactable, comfortable, four legged chair for the DRZ backwoods gravel road trips which holds my, uh humm, 235 pounds of roundness without problems. I have found the Wolfman racks and bags are an excellent choice for soft bags. They will hold everything you need and do it very well.

    However for the multi day rally it's still the Kermit.
