I'm guessing a thin neoprene liner in the panniers would do the trick, but just something to think about.
    i have adopted my bridal unit's fabric grocery bags for saddle bag liners

    i just drop them into my saddle bags, loaded w/ my stuff organized in 2-gal zip-locs, for further protection

    hope this helps

    The pics of your bike, the places you posted about in this thread, and your location brought back some good memories of my trusty old Sporty and the two trips we took to visit my brother in Fort Collins...

    Poudre River Cameron Pass

    Devils Tower Crazy Horse Memorial

    Mount Rushmore The Badlands

    The camping I did on those two trips was on the deck, but I hope to remedy that in the future once I get myself set up with some hammock gear.

    Iíve gotta agree with the others... You know how to pack your bike.

    What is Fearless, a lowered Sporty?

    I've been thinking about something like this for some time and may check it out. Thanks.

    Great comments folks. One of the reasons I took up hanging is to reduce my load on the m/c. I agree with ice cycle you may need the tent in some locations. Sometimes it's better to have than to want and I've been stuck in "the want" a couple of times.

    That's a nice size for two steaks. And am I understanding right that it weighs just over 8 oz? I can see one of those in a gallon zip-lock bag packed in my saddle bags or even in my kayak.

    I'm planning on an almost month long mc trip through Alaska next summer. I can't wait. I'm hoping that there are some serious holiday sales so that I can gear up.

    I met a few folks from HF at a campground here in SC that some of us are considering adopting to keep it open (or, more accurately, to get it re-opened).

    I packed my gear on the bike for the two-night hang.

    I just read the comment that if it works for backpacking it will work for motorcycling camping, and yes I agree other than the gear needs to be protected better on a bike. Every thing is so subjected to vibration on the bike that it does not see in a back pack. It will get rattled around on a backpack, but I also off road or at least bad road with the gear loaded. Then there is also getting your gear to survive the mishaps that it will go through when the bike goes down in dirt mud water.
    That also leads to water proofing your gear a back pack or stuff sack is not going to keep the water out of your stuff when doing a 16 hour day in the saddle when it rains 8 of them. Dry bags for every thing, and dry things go with dry stuff and wet stuff goes with wet stuff. On a recent trip a friend pack all his stuff in dry bags and one morning he packed his dew covered tarp in with his sleeping bag, guess what that night he not only had a moist tarp, but he had a moist sleeping bag also.
    Keeping hard things away from soft things that might not do well being rubbed together all day. The spreader bars for my Ridge Runner will wear right through a nylon stuff sack and after that right through what ever they are packed agenst, think tarp or hammock. So they are packed with cooking gear or tools.
    Motorcycle camping is such a small market that there is not very much specialized gear out there so we do have to borrow from backpacking and boating. And use what work best for what we are trying to do.
    One of the biggest help tips I got was from Helon2Wheels (if it ain't tight it ain't right)

    You just need a lot of good straps.
