Do you ride a bicycle? Motorcycle? Scooter? Not enough space to carry anything? Why not try this small motorcycle handlebar bag that will fit on any of these, right up front where you can see it. Glasses, keys, phone, any of these will fit and be handy if you need them. Plus it is secure. Now you can go anywhere no matter what you are on. Plus with the easy on and off installation you can you can go from one to the other without a lot of trouble.
I certainly hope everyone had a safe time in Myrtle Beach and a great time. With all the things going on at the end of his month and the long weekend I hope you put your motorcycle luggage on. You could ride to Charlotte to see the races. Go to the infield and have more fun. Or if you want a a more relaxed atmosphere, ride to the mountains and enjoy nature. Or just ride with really no destination in mind. Go and have fun and ride.
Since I sold my motorcycle and still looking for the right one to buy I am really miss riding. Seeing all the bikes on the road doesn’t help. In my trunk of my car I keep my riding gear. Gloves, glasses, boots, helmet and a jacket all in my motorcycle barrel bag. I always try to be prepared in case I get an offer to ride. You never know if friends will come by and say lets go, its a beautiful day.
Don’t have a couple of weeks off to go to Myrtle Beach? Why not put the motorcycle saddlebags on the bike and just go for a day trip. Pack the rain gear just in case the weather changes and an extra set of clothes, but leave enough room in case you find something special or something you are looking for. With the weather being so nice it is great to be outside. It seems that everyone wants to go somewhere and it doesn’t matter how, just out.
I saw another use for this small motorcycle tool bag the other day. I was riding around the beach and saw a few people riding their bicycles. On the front of the bicycle, attached to the handlebars, was this bag. What a perfect place to keep some change, wallet or keys or even a water bottle, while pedaling and getting some exercise or even watching the scenery. It is out of the way, secure and easy to keep your eye on it.
On my way home yesterday, I saw a bike with their coat strapped to the sissy bar with a bungee strap. It seemed secure. The wind was blowing pretty hard and I could see part of the coat flapping in the wind and finally working its way out and he may never know it until it was too late. I thought if he had a motorcycle cargo net there would be no chance for the coat to work its way out.
It is time for another road trip. Myrtle Beach is just around the corner. It is time to check and see if you have everything . Get out your motorcycle luggage set and pick out the bags you need to take. Pack the saddlebags and the backpack with the clothes and the tool bag with small tools for emergency fixes. Get the tent and sleeping bag , strap them on. And of course rain gear, in case of an occasional shower. Have fun.
The weather being so unpredictable lately because of the heat. We have had a chance of showers every day. I always keep my all weather motor scooter cover with me to cover the bike just in case is rains. The cover is not only for the rain. It protects against the heat, dust and salt from the sea air as well. Now I can get on the bike, sit comfortably and ride instead of having wiping it down first. Or trying to find shade.
The weather has been so nice and I have seen so many bikes out, I just needed to ride. The unfortunate thing is I just sold my bike and I have no ride at the moment. When some friends came by my work and asked me to go riding. I really wanted to go but had to go by the DMV and turn in my tag in that day. They said no problem we could go by there and take care of that and then go. I got my motorcycle barrel bag out of the trunk of the car and was ready to go. What better way to end the day.
