Gear Talk / Tandem: Panniers or Trailer?
« on: January 05, 2007, 01:59:59 pm »
My wife and I will be riding a Co-Motion Speedster tandem around the western U.S. We plan to try both panniers and a trailer beforehand, but am interested in the wisdom of the forum.

Please let me know if you have any convincing arguments either way.

We will be fully-loaded, camping, and cooking almost all meals.

I hope to finish grad school in June.  Then my wife and I I will cobble together some sort of Western/Midwestern U.S. route to see family, relax, and enjoy time together.  We will start here in Eugene, Oregon and head West through Missoula and eventually hooking up with the Northern Tier.  Across to Wisconsin to see my family and then over to Michigan for my wife's family reunion.  Head southward to Missouri and then back west on the TransAm to northern Utah and back to Oregon.
What do you think?
Hope to leave in early June and be back by late August.
Also, we want to use our tour to raise funds for the charity Water For People ( Anyone done a tour for a cause before? Tips?
We will hopefully be on a Co-Motion Speedster tandem. Spendy, but very high-quality.  Not sure if we want a trailer or panniers yet...we'll try them both beforehand.
Thanks for the inspiration
