We all take too much with us when we go somewhere. I do it on a weekend trip, flying to Norway for Christmas and when taking short vacations. We are so focused and even dependent on all the material things that we think will make us happy, that we think we can't live without them. But in reality, their is not much you really need to go for a summer vacation with your Beemer
Just ask Richard from Canada. He would tell you that he can't leave the dog at home so he puts it in a cage on the back. What about the new video recorder that aunt Helen gave him for Christmas? Just put it on top of the tankbag and Richard "Spielberg" is ready to shoot. The spare wheel just looks cool, and you know you are really going places when you carry your own spare (front wheel?).
