Have an insight into our luggage on the trip

We got asked many times, why we have so much luggage, so we thought, we just unpack everything and let you have a look. This is obviously variing a bit during the trip, but you can see the basic stuff. The photos are taken while riding in Australia. Since we do lots of camping, we have proper gear for temperatures between -10°C to 50°C (14°F to 122°F). Sometimes we also pass areas where no water is available, so we have to carry all the water and the weight increases even more.

    Looks like you share the load. How would you go about if you had to be self sufficient as an individual rider? Just for interest sake

      Hi Geno,
      we share a bit of our load, but mainly carry our own staff e.g. I (Tobi) would miss my chair, a tent and a water filter. However, I carry all spare parts, cooking staff and would need a much smaller tent when riding alone. So I guess it wouldn’t be a big deal to carry my gear only.
