Here's a pic of my old faithful Shogun touring bike back on the road across Tassie after another lease on life. Some of the components are still original which still ceases to amaze me. I wont bore you with the specs but you are more than welcome to ask.

Great looking bike. I think it would look better if it had some Peruvian dust on it....or maybe some mud from the Dempster.
It's time to quit your day job and head out.
Seriously, it looks like a solid "go anywhere" machine.
Now I don't feel so bad about my LHT I too pack a lot of stuff on my touring bike I will post pic as soon as I get done packing it.I still have a lot to pack or should I say to buy first.Just would like to know whats its weight - you on it.I thinking mine will be close to 100 to maybe 140 when all done.And yes I need all that stuff when I hit the road.You do have a nice bike your brooks saddle is a work of art I think.You can't go wrong with a brooks.
