I have a small, 2 man tent (small tent....not a tent fot 2 small men) a sleeping bag, and 2 drop tarps that I throw in the bike and go places.
The tarps are for one on the ground to keep the bottom of the tent dry, and the other is to cover the tent, to keep EVERYTHING dry in the event of a rain storm. A few (4) cheap bungy cords and some washline, and you can make almost any configuration you want.
K-Mart and Walmart sell cheap tents that alone suck ass, but for $30, and then the two tarps (those cheap blue ones) it's a great set up for me. If you get the tent in the spring, you can get them as cheap as $19.99 sometimes at year end close out.
Sleeping bag, tent and taprs all fit in the tourpack. Some clothes in the saddlebag, and a cooler on the back seat.
