First is from Mackinaw Mille Creek Campground (Mackinaw City, MI) and second is from Wilderness State Park (Carp Lake, MI). Cargo is for my wife and I to camp for a weekend.





Bike is a little tippy at low speeds but fine once we're rolling. I don't get how people think a K75 is underpowered for this kind of thing...with the both of us and all that cargo we can still do 80 mph without downshifting. Then again I weigh 150 lbs and she's like 108.

She brought up how much weight the bike can carry so I calculated what the bike weighs empty (608 lbs according to my work's freight scale) and our body weight from the GVWR and came up with 114 lbs. We probably carried half that weight

Nice, almost looks like a sleeper cab on the top case.

From last summer's lap around the Gaspé Peninsula.

Kind of crazy, they charged us for two campsites for two bikes and two small tents.  But there was a double rainbow and whales as well.

boy, these are old!  Hard to find camping pictures, think we were too busy inebriating.  Parking lot is Mt St Helen's about 10 years after she blew, still pretty desolate.

Getting ready to roll! Next stop was in Meeker, Colorado after leaving Utah. I have a regular camping spot there about half way to Salida, Colorado from Park City, Utah. The photo is two years old, but the  Kryder will be on the tarmac again soon....very soon.

Hi Johnny. Thanks for the reply. I do likes the iconic 22 liter topcase and had one in the past on my ole '87 K75T and will own one in the future. I ran across the Reynolds for a cheap price and bought it. They do make it difficult to remove the panniers. Happy trails and further moto adventures!

I am just back from a camping trip around the Black Forest in Germany.  Brilliant 10 days on fabulous roads, good campsites and great walking in the forest. The tent I took was a 41 year old Robert Saunders which finally split a seam on the last day, now retired with honour.

Weekly dump day campout. I can get all my camping gear into one pannier, shelter, sleeping bag, self inflating mattress, inflatable pillow, two ground sheets(picnic rugs). Bike forms part of the shelter. When summer comes all I need is my compact chair two footstools, and a picnic rug.

Got the flash on the camera working, clearer shots.  I am the only camper and bike, the others sleep in or on their vehicles.The car queue can go for 300 metres, the final pedestrian queue up to 150 metres.

Laitch to further perplex you, I started off 3 years ago sleeping on the bike. Progressed to sleeping propped against the bike on a cushion. Next was the fold up chair with two camp stools to put my feet on, threw a groundsheet over me when it rained or in heavy dew. Then with winter coming on I decided to up the ante. Installed an attachment point for a horizontal fibreglass pole under the top box and attached a modified OZ army Hootchee and with a self inflating mattress, a sleeping bag home sweet home. Map of gate protocol attached, although I could actually get in as far as the fourth gate as part of the perimeter fence consists of vertical poles. I could ride in but I might cheese off the security.
Regards Martin.
