Over time I’ve finished lots of experimenting on my bike journeys. Each journey has been completely different and I’ve introduced completely different objects with me on every of my excursions.
After almost eight years of bicycle touring, I’ve realized what I have to convey with me and what I ought to go away at residence. And although I’ve realized quite a bit over time about a number of the pointless objects you is perhaps temped to take with you on a motorcycle tour, I’ll probably convey some extra silly issues with me sooner or later.
Listed below are a number of the issues I introduced with me on tour, that I actually didn’t want:
A soft-case ice chest.
A full measurement tripod for my digicam
A full 3-piece cook-set
A photo voltaic panel in Europe (The solar rarely got here out and there was
merely no want for a photo voltaic panel)
My mobile phone after I went to Europe (It didn’t work in any respect and I had
to hold it round the entire time)
Pepper spray (I’ve carried it on quite a few excursions and by no means used it.
I gained’t be carrying it anymore.)
There are probably lots of different silly issues I’ve introduced with me, however I can’t consider them in the meanwhile. I’ll consider them as time goes by and replace you on my stupidity by posting within the feedback part under.
One in all my favourite silly issues I ever noticed somebody carrying with them on a motorcycle tour was a stuffed jackalope. This rider was clearly carrying the stuffed animal as a joke, however that is fairly probably the stupidest factor I’ve ever seen strapped onto the again of a touring cyclists bike.
One other favourite of mine is the Coconut Head that Ted Schredd carried with him on his tour round america. You possibly can learn extra about Ted Schredd and his epic bike experience in his guide, “The Biking Adventures of Coconut Head”
What’s the dumbest factor you’ve got ever introduced with you on a motorcycle journey? Or what’s the stupidest factor you’ve ever seen another person carrying with them on a motorcycle journey?
