Pack It Up - June 28, 2010, 07:15 PM

I have read quite a few threads about riders taking or wanting to take weekend trips or longer. A common questions is how to get my bike packed up with all the stuff needed.

Helen2wheels is a great place to start. She is a rider and all of her stuff is water proof, well made and designed to be ridden hard.

Here is a H2W duffel and packing straps. On this trip were in the rain from Stephens City to Pine Hurst and the contents were dry.

I usually just pack everything into Todd's rolling Samsonite. LOL

We have a waterproof duffel that he straps across his back seat/saddle bags. With the VTR, I had a tank bag, saddle bags and a tail pack; all had rain covers, but we also bought some dry bags as an extra level of protection. This set up didn't work quite as well on the CBR but since Donovan's racing is taking up all of our time, I haven't looked too hard for stuff that will work.

Mom of Donovan,

Aerostich is a nice one stop shopping place for travel gear. I know what to take I just have no room.

2008 with no tent:

My ghetto set up last year:

Better this year but the curves were calling. I dragged the bags so hard they both sport holes now.

Next year's set up will rock your face off. Think aluminum. I'm actually drawing it up now. No more shopping for clothes mid-trip.
