Great idea for a thread. Love seeing all the loaded bikes too.
Reading through the Post a touring photo ... thread I saw the comment above and thought that might be an informative and even humorous thread. I did a search of the forums and didn't find such a topic so here goes. Post examples of failures, successes, entertainment, ingenuity ....

Short comments encouraged, but let the pictures provide most of the enlightenment and entertainment.

Here is a picture of my first overnight trip on my trike in January, 2020.

Surely there are more examples of 'well-loaded' cycles, good examples and bad.

Rocco - my first touring bike.

This was in France on my way to Spain. I'd set off at pretty short notice and just used the two panniers. The balance was off though, so I picked up two cheap panniers in Paris and had my front rollers sent on down to Spain.

There's a lot of mountains in Northern Spain! I was pretty glad to feel confident whizzing down some fine roads at 70kmh!

That's a Coleman 3 man tent on the back - tough as old boots, I loved it. But it weighs more than most bike packer's total gear!^_^

And a solar panel. No good on the back of a bike.
