Did a 13 day trip with a Geigerrig water bag and large ortlieb dry duffel. Sink wash riding cloths and keep a a set of clean cloths for the evenings.

Have the large MG tank bag along with the small tanklock bag (Onar mount). Only bought the Ventura frames and just tie down Givi/ortlieb dry duffel bags. Any extras can be tied to seat. Light bike, happy bike.

Not on that trip, but adding a tent and other gear on the rear rack (which I later added) would not have been an issue.

There’s loads of good throw over stuff started to appear out there on the web in the last 12 months, no need to start bolting brackets on as I have done previously, just travel light and add extra deodorant instead. These days, this is a weeks touring worth for me - just a 30 litre dry bag.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

As others suggest, throw it on the back.  I find a couple pieces of rope and a Trucker's Hitch Knot to be the best "back to basics" way of holding it down.  Those spigots under the seat are real useful for that.

Thanks for the input! I will likely go with a dry bag of sorts that I can use on any of the bikes. I generally just use 1 bag for change of clothes & personal stuff, the other is as mentioned, tools, plug kit, rain gear.

I use the original panniers and a Ventura rack worked well I had 2 x 50-litre bags that zipped together
for big loads, I now run a tank bag of a Stelvio panniers and role top 60-litre bag on the seat [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Any old side racks (HB, OE unobtainium....) plus a duffel bag fit everything you can really ever need. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Please forgive if I said this already but the OE pannier frames also make superb dry bag carriers if you don’t mind looking like an inshore lifeboat. 😂

I had these three Kriega bags (20L w/10L drypacks attached to the side) for 10 years on two previous bikes. The securement is phenomenal and quality unsurpassed. Sufficiently sized for a good three day weekend getaway.

It's a great area. Looks like you picked the right place with Encinitas and close to San Diego which is a fun city. Spent some time mapping the best bike route from San Diego to LA. All those town south of Encinitas are superb. Been working on this for ten years and close to shoring it up.

Top boxes are fully for sure but quite secure
Don't forget the extra 5L gas cans strapped to the passenger pegs

Bump for Kreiga, used US-30 dry back for a week long trip in Europe. If going for longer, I would also add a US-10 which can either attached to the US-30 or on the tank via the tank bag attachments. Also consider their 3L waist pack, easily fits phones, wallet, small visor spray, cloth etc which makes it easy to access.

Also used an Oxford roll top 50l tail pack. Also excellent, but the Kriega strap attachment cannot be beaten and the multiple compartments the Kreiga offers is more piratical.

Don’t you find the Kriega a bit too modular. I’ve got a couple and unless they are packed to the gills they are a fiddly PITA. Ironically on my Spain trip, 3 of us had Kriega bags and every one got our stuff damp in biblical rain, this hasn’t ever happened with dry bags.

I have a pair of soft saddlebags I used before I got the H&B Hardcases. Worked fine for day trips. bent Sheetmetal worked well enough as a mounting point/Frame. If you want them Let me know, they are just gathering dust in my storage locker. Have some old Pics I can dig up if you want.

.
I used Ogio panniers and fabricated a carbon fibre rack that can be removed leaving no
bits & pieces hanging off the bike. I've fitted an Ogio stealth tailbag on it. I replaced the Ogio logos with the Guzzi Eagle. I believe it will give me enough capacity for long distance touring.
