I enjoy going through the woods on my atv and just ride. It is so peaceful and quiet. Getting out gives me time to think and clear my mind. I like to pack my scooter saddlebags with rain gear and snacks and water so I can ride for hours and not have to get back to the car or stop at a store. I also like to take something for the animals to watch them when I stop to take a break.
The weather was getting warm and I thought it was time to get my summer clothes out. I started to put away all the winter clothes and decided that maybe I should leave a few things out just in case the weather got cold. I took my scooter bag and packed a heavy sweater, my long underwear shirt and a couple of heavy long sleeve shirts. The rest I put away for next winter. I then put the bag in the closet. Now if the weather gets cold I can stay warm.
Do you have a specific look you want for your bike? Most do. Some love the sleek look and clean lines. Others may want the cruising look. With a set of motorcycle saddlebags that are easy to get on and off you can have both. Put your bags on the bike, pack your gear and you are all set to travel the road. Take the bags off and you have your bike ready to run around town with your friends.
I carry a lot of things in the trunk of my car. My fitness equipment, my riding gear and rain gear to name a few. They are all kept in motorcycle barrel bags. They have plenty of room for my stuff and are small enough to keep everything organized in the trunk. They also make it easy for me to grab what I need when I need it. Even when someone asks me to go riding. I grab the bag and get on the bike and go.
Keeping things safe and dry on a motorcycle or scooter is very important. No matter what you have or what you are carrying, everything is important. Even going to the grocery store on your bike, carrying all those bags when you get home can be a chore. How about a bag for your motorcycle saddlebags. You could put all your stuff in this one bag and when you get to your destination just pull your one bag out and go.
Those who ride always want to have what they need with them whether it is a ride around town or one that will take a few days. The touring bikes with the hard saddlebags always seem to have plenty of room. Over time the seals will wear and may not keep your gear dry. A simple solution is an insert for your bag. These bags can be fitted for your bag with a handle for easy pulling out without taking the whole bag off.
The weather was so nice this weekend. Everybody was out. I was at work, but I could see all the bikes riding. There were bikes with single riders and there were bikes with their kids on the back. It seemed like everyone had a plan as to where they wanted to go. You could see the motorcycle saddlebags were packed with gear and there were even some bikes that had no bags at all. Each had a destination. I hope everyone had fun and was safe.
Love to ride? Getting on the bike whenever you can? Or maybe you just ride occasionally. No matter what type of riding you do, day trips, trips around town, or extended rides, you can always have what you need by having the right motorcycle luggage with you. Any combination will work. Some or all, you know the look you want and what you need to make things easier. Put it on, pack and get going. Just have fun and ride safe.
What a great weekend. With the holiday and spring break running together it seems everyone was out. Even with the threat of rain it didn’t seem to change anyone’s plans to get out and enjoy themselves. The beaches were packed. The motorcycle saddlebags were packed and everything was set on go. The plan, there wasn’t any, just get out and ride. Wherever you ended up at you knew you would have a good time. Spring is here and the winter blues is gone.
Today I was on my way home from work and saw something I thought was very interesting. These people were riding their bicycles and they were loaded down. They were packed like they were traveling long distances. The part that was so interesting, was that each bicycle had a set of motorcycle saddlebags on the front tire as well as stuff packed on the back. The bikes were going at pretty good pace and everything seemed balanced. What a great idea to keep your clothes secure and dry.
