Okay everyone I think I have the hang of this so I thought this might be a topic close to all our hearts.
Your off on a road trip. One night away, round trip 900 kms. Other than your bike (Fueled and serviced), your stand up cloths.................what do you just love to take with you????

Hey there Falcon, we have a pop up, Tom pulls w/ his bike. It opens up to a queen size bed, w/ 3ft standing room when you walk in, 600lb max load, I don't know the cubic ft, but it holds, our chairs, grills, food cooler ect, ect...And if it rains, takes 3 min, to set up. Another cool thing, because we're 3 ft off the ground, we get air, feels ooh so good. Not like a tent. Although it is canvas, but w/ plenty of screens.And in between the hitch and the pop up, we have another spot to put the "beer, juice, water" cooler. One screen, (if you're feeling lazy/hung over you can open it up, reach the cooler (beer, water, juice) and not even have to leave the bed. It rocks.
Here is a pic for now, I'll try and find others another time.
exactly!! i was reading thru and thought u have to be kidding me. i pack gas money and that's it. map? i get lost, i ask someone. i break, someone will help. that's the journey. the road just like life has it's diversions. u just gotta learn to roll with them.
I ask him how much room I have or take a back pack.I can roll up a weeks worth of clothes in backpack plus my women products....so if no bags on bike I at least know ill have clean clothes.Oh yea and don't forget the chap stick.
Duct Tape; bail money, old out dated maps; one pair clean underwear (just in case you are in an accident... remember Mom); one change of clothes; toothbrush; small bottle of JD; sun glasses... and more duct tape.
i like to take the essentials tooth brush and paste toilet paper change of clothes ahammock to sleep in its more comfortable than the ground i like to get a motion senitive camera to see what critters visit in the night you know they do
WhiskeyRich write: Maps? No darling, I ain't packin no map. If that curvy road to left looks good to you then we're gonna go see where it goes. Don't a map to spoil the surprise. As far as other things, I like to keep it light, sleep bag, flashlight, babywipes, most of the small stuff ya'll have said. I always pack a bottle of Jack too, it's almost a ritual, not for the road mind you, but for the relaxin at the end of the ridin day.
Well, as long as you have Jack, I can see why we don't need to find our way home! However, I prefer the Captain for relaxin'.
Well darlin, we'll just have to pack along some Capt along with the Jack so we can both relax and have a hoot at the end of the ridin day!! Hope we get the chance one day.
Peace Sister, ride safe.
