With money being tight these days, if you are like me I like to have things that have multi purposes. One of these things are my motorcycle luggage. Not only do I like my bags to be functional, but I also like them to be stylish. Take for instance this barrel bag. It is made of soft leather so it looks good but With all the room I can use it as an overnight bag in my car or as a sissy bar bag on the bike.
Need more room? Everyone does. This sissy bar bag set has plenty of room with with lots of zippered pockets for the easy to loose items. It has an easy on/off installation to the bike, which is great for traveling. The bags separate if you only need one bag on the bike. Or if you just need the roll bag to take with you. It also has straps to secure other items such as a sleeping bag, your jacket or maybe an extra helmet.
Have you figured what the weather is going to be yet? Probably not. One day it is semi warm, the next day it is freezing, rain, wind or a mix. Having you gear ready and having the right gear on is hard to figure. If you have your motorcycle luggage ready to go, it helps. Not only should you have a barrel bag ready with all of your emergency gear, you should have a barrel bag ready with extra clothes.
There have been times when no matter how many clothes you have on, you still have a chill. I have found that a rain suit is a great wind breaker as well as a good barrier for the chill. This rain suit folds up so small you can keep it in your motorcycle saddlebag or in your Sissy Bar bag without taking that much room and you have it with you all the time. It also has bright colors on the jacket, so you are seen when you have it on.
