Rider Magazine’s Arden Kysely may be a little miffed about being left behind on a recent trip (who wouldn’t be, really), but in the end he comes out the winner, sharing the joys of minimalist rough camping with his adventure machine, a BMW F800GS, and Giant Loop’s Great Basin Saddlebag, Great Basin Dry Bag and Coyote Dry Bag. Go light, go fast, Arden!
Highlights from Arden’s practical, concise adventure motorcycle camping run-down:
“While the pros are sipping Pinot in a parking lot, I’ll clue you in to real, back-of-beyond dirt camping made possible by a bike such as the BMW F800GS.”
“Too much weight can spoil a ride, so lighten your load with luggage that doesn’t outweigh your gear. Giant Loop’s Great Basin bag packs so low and narrow on the bike you hardly know it’s there.”
