  18. Touring on a bike generally falls in to two camps NitrousbabeNitrousbabe
    1. A set of leathers, a toothbrush, a change of underwear and a credit card.
    2. The kitchen sink.
    I confess to being in the Kitchen sink camp but still find I pack more than necessary. A general rule of thumb is lay out everything you think you will need on the bed and then ruthlessly cut it in half.
  19. G'day NitrousbabeNitrousbabe, sounds like a great trip, any idea of a route yet?

    Chris, you do realise you can wear undies inside out as it becomes necessary, thus getting two weeks out of a pair. (If you need any longer than that, the credit card comes into play*)
