    I plan to do some camping on my new bike on weekends as well as I am planning a 10-day trip down to Lake Placid. I want to go with Dry Bags and wonder if you prefer to go with one large bag such as a 60L or smaller bags and stack them? I am looking to go with the
    SW-MOTECH Drybag system that is offered at Twisted Throttle.

    Many thanks,

    Cliff

    I prefer to keep weight down low with soft side bags with or without rack. Giant Loop Mosko Moto make some good size side bags.

    I agree, I like to use soft bags to keep it low and if I need to I will use a dry roll top bag on the tail rack. I have a set of dryspec bags that are pretty decent. Not the cheapest, but keep everything dry and seem to be well built.

    Stacking as shown in the first post looks good cool in pictures but in practice it will not last too long if doing any offroading. If you must use two bags, place them in tandem right on the seat and rack.

    A setup with a medium North Face duffle and a dry bag behind it has lasted me 10s of thousands of Kms, on and offroad.

    I have the Giant Loop bags and Kriegas available to choose every time, but the duffel + drybag combo held with ancra straps (non stretchy) proves reliable when riding and easy to undo and take inside a tent or a hotel.

    Enjoy Lake Placid!
