True about the Ural: I initially thought "never a packing conundrum again!".... not so; in standard trim, with my partner sitting pillion and the dogs warming the tub, I really only have the rack and boot: less packing space than the two panniers on my ex-GS!!
But in this instance I'm looking at things purely from a principled point of view, especially as all the lessons learnt from our Argentina trip a slipping into my memory lost pile very quickly.
This is particularly poignant for me as I suffer from chronic "what if" syndrome where suddenly back-ups for the back ups seems like a good idea!
As you explained: I like to know what logic is applied, rather than the same tired lists of objects, particulary as the objects you need on one trip with a given bike may bear no relation to what is needed on another trip and another bike....
All good so far: keep 'em coming!
Adventure: it's an experience, not a style!
(so ride what you like, but ride it somewhere new!)
