yeap Lowryder..been on a few trips..I actually like to bathe in the streams..very refreshing. take a small line, string between a couple of trees and can wash clothes too..hang to dry..depends on where ur going..cooler weather..stream..keep your beer and pop in the stream..

Of all the items mentioned,I didn't see a flashlight.Does everyone ony ride in the daylight.I carry several small tactical flashlights manufactured by Surefire.I also carry several knives,one small for cutting or splicing wires and one large for other more robust chores.I also carry duct tape and some bailing wire.
I don't expect my new scooters to break down,but old habits are hard to break.

Ivory soap floats, we can wash in the rivers, streams, ponds; small bedroll, few personal hygiene things, a few clothes, good to go.

BHG knows how to travel

packing list
backpack tent less than 5lbs
sleeping bag -20..I have been camping when it dropped below zero at 3am and the bag failed..learned sun worship.
camp seat..air mattress
journal, camera, harmonica, clothes, toiletries kickstand puck and of course the ghost in the machine..
Being a backpacker as well most of the gear translates really well inlcuding the cooking utensils but it is easier to find a place to eat on the road than pack food you need like in the wilderness.

Since I have a hitch on the Chief and have a trailer, I can pack all that catchme and seeme need, including tiedowns for the dog kennel. Plenty of room. One day I might even buy one of the pop-out tent trailers for the bike.

Possum,
No, but Oz is somewhere I always wanted to visit, with a side trip to NZ. Over 30 hrs air travel commercial last I checked and that was before all the security stuff. Some day, I hope.

Possum,
Guess everyone is planning on camping. I'd just plan to camp on the first floor of a motel and bring the toiletry bag, swim suit/shorts, pair of boat shoes and change of underwear for one night.

Suspended,
Nothing that outrageous for me, just a car starter strapped on the rear seat once. But in the Dominican Republic I saw a guy and his girl (in a dress!) riding an ancient Honda 50 carrying a big piece of plywood under their left arms and she had a big mesh bag of fruit in her right.

One bag. Oh, tank bag included, make that two. It holds the emergency essentials. You have your own bike, so you can pack what you like. B)
