Prepping a bike for the TET? You and hopefully many others!

Share your preparations here. When you're out on the TET, remember to post photos and reports on the FB Group.

What’s the right bike for the TET? The one you have. So.. I’m off on 800 mile UK TET trip soon on my Fantic Casa 250 - for which a larger fuel tank is not available :(
Kriega OS base with two 12l bags, 35l roll top Tek bag on rear, Kriega 5l with a fuel bottle on the tail, Giant Loop handlebar bag for bits, and a Kriega 25l rucksack. We’re probably wild camping so tent, cooker, etc is all going on the bike. The bike is standard except for a softer rear spring , some cheap hand guards, and Mousse front and rear.
Will post some pictures on the TET FB page when we get going in a couple of weeks.

Me and my mate are planning on large parts of TeT Sweden and Finland. We will both be going on a DR650 (a 93 and 94).
For luggage we'll be using Lomo panniers and probably a waterproof duffel on top. Both on TKC80 fronts and Mitas E-07+ and K60 Scout on the rear, 25L fuel tanks, Zeta handguards and tapered handlebars.
