Ha, camping in Scotland requires extra everything......for two. My pal on the GS was solo, he had more kit than we did for the two of us. There's 2 chairs & hiking kit on top of my topbox. We had gone for a 10 day tour including a rally at Gairloch with a run up to Lochinver. We did have some good weather, but not a lot.

Camping does require a lot more I suppose, especially for 2, this was me last week camping for 1 :




I still reckon I took too much and will be dumping the topbox in a few weeks for a North Wales camping trip, only 3 days mind.

Yes, lot of weight high up there. Solo, I get all me kit in the panniers, tent in bottom. Bed in topbox, me panniers don't leak but I don't chance it. Also 2 empty 2L containers, one for wee in the night & one for me water, mustn't get um mixed up. I like to take the topbox to lock up me helmet. All me other bike kit goes in the panniers, it's like a wardrobe.  :152:

We have to have some little luxuries at the bike rallies. I travel a tad lighter on tour. That tent fits in the bottom of my smaller (exhaust side) pannier. Lovely to stand up to pull yer pants up.

SW Motech cargo bag. 50l storage, keeps everything dry (as long as you pack it correctly) straps down security to the bike, no wider than the handle bars. Easy. Been doing tours round Europe like that for years.

Fancying a bit of comfort eh Tim. It's a Vango Galaxy 300, several of my chums now have them. Weighed it 5.5kg & as I said fits in my 37L pannier with the poles separate across corners. I bought the footprint to go with it at approx. 35. It does come with a clip-in bathtub groundsheet for the front section.

Hard to find footprint but easy to make from a go-outdoors groundsheet, I have one ready to do that (bit tougher).

Ah, its a Vango I bought, but the little Banshee 200, I didnt want to spend too much as I wasnt sure whether I was gonna bother with camping again, but I did quite enjoy it. Ok, maybe for next year, I do like the idea of being able to sit in a chair or stand up, especially if the weathers shite



This thing fits in the tank bag if I carry the poles seperate

Aye m8, that's a bit tiny innit. I have several tents. I currently take a Vango Tempest 300 when I go light for Euro touring and a Eureka Bighorn for Scotland. The Galaxy 300 I've had for 3,1/2 years, it did 2 weeks of rain & wind on IOM up on Peel campsite & maybe 20 rallies since, still good.

Most important thing, for me, is that I can at least kneel up to take a pee in me container when I wake in the night, without me head in the roof. And, if weather is bad, to be able to make breakfast & a brew indoors safely, sitting on a seat.
