Can anyone spare me a picture?

Hi!

I'm looking for a picture of a fully loaded touring bike to put on my website. I'm putting together a group ride around New Zealand South Island for friends and friends of friends, some of them newbies to touring, and need a picture of a simple touring set up to inspire. My own rig is not so typical as I carry a guitar and have dry bags not panniers.

Anyhow I would greatly appreciate it if one of you guys would post a picture and give me permission to use it. This is a totally non-commercial project.

Criteria:

Two rear panniers
Tent on top of the rear rack
No front rack or panniers
Handlebar bag
Two or three water bottle cages
Not so much "custom stuff"

Thanks for your help

The website is here: http://www.whoopswrongplanet.com
