Hello everyone! So sorry for the delayed response but just figured out this weekend that I'm not receiving notifications of posts on the site. Pieter is looking into it! :roll:

Went out for a few hour ride on Sunday. Beautiful, warm, sunny day and I didn't fall off! Had a lovely time! Must say, all those clothes and metal plates make it a bit difficult to move! I feel like a robot! But at least I look good! "Thank you dear!" And I LOVE the boots!! Not my cowboy boots of course but.......

Look forward to meeting everyone in September! Now how does a woman pack for 4 days in such a small space? This is going to be a trick!! :wink:

Cheers!

Suddenly the 35ltr pannier/liner of a Pan-European appears pretty luxury and extravagant... ;)

Pssst Karen, if Martin is not nice to you, just sit on the parcel you were going to post to him... :mrgreen:
But really, he's a nice guy.

But realistic... :D

Seriously, what do you need when going on a ride for a couple of days...
During the day on the bike you're in the long sleeved/legged functional underwear underneath riding gear...
For dinner/breakfast a pair of loafers/boat shoes (the later collapse) or sneakers, a pair of jeans, 3~4 polo shirts, a long sleeved turtle-neck or fleece jacket, your necessaries, socks, underwear, PJ's, that's it... its not a fashion show... no evening dresses, nor dinner jackets required...

Found this. On a UK website but it says it is manfactured in Belgium.
With this, Karen can't fall off. And we can strap one or two bags to the rack.
I like it but it is damn expensive.

Pieter. Vacuum bags are great for reducing the size of the load. Or a good quality waterproof backpack. Or, as Derek said earlier, post stuff over and I will bring it down. Plenty of space on the pan without the usual camping gear.

Pieter, don't spend money on the back with a rack! I'm not falling off! And I'll certainly manage with a sweater or two, my boots and jeans. 8-)
