Oh dear, just read it, point taken, so apologies for any transgressions on my part in the past. This still is the best and most polite forum around so please keep it going Steiner.

Not a big deal, all heavy stuff in bottles, oh sorry meant of course in the bottom ;)
Well, that's certainly a way to free up space on the bike, with bottles in the bottom!![emoji44][emoji44][emoji6]

I can't believe all that gear was packed in/on the bike 😱😱😱😱😱. I take it all that stuff is in bags, like pannier bags, I think I might have to do a practice pack!! 🤔 For when we eventually get away. Great topic and a great help thanks.
Smile you ride a BMW.
