    ps - no camping, only hotels, 2 pannier bags total 12 kg max plus some junk in top box. Always leaving room for 2 cans of beer from the fridge in the filling station when I top up with fuel before parking for the night
    Carpe Diem!

    I believe that nowadays it's fashionable to have one's own velocopede inside a tent as well.

    Tent is on top of one panier in a lomo bag and a pair of chairs is in another
    Cooking stuff is in the 2 lomo bar bags which are my new favorite thing.

    German guy over there for about 4 weeks.
    I've toured all over Europe 2 up with camping gear on my TL1000S. Pack what you need only, there are shops over there. You'll be fine.
