JUST KEEP ME MOVING:
Mission to Montana


EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK

The following is a list of everything packed on my motorcycle when I left Montana, headed for Alaska.  Believe it or not this all fits in standard BMW luggage, including a tank bag, side cases, and a top case.  All of the camping gear, as well as a few spares, are stored in an Ortlieb dry bag, strapped across the rear seat.
