Riding long distance is a feeling that cannot be expressed in words for true blue motorcyclists. It is similar to trying to put into context why a dog sticks it’s head out of a moving car. You just can’t explain it well.
But touring long distance means carrying luggage or many essential stuffs we need or might need for the trip , to keep us safe, warm and well cared for. So naturally , the average guy would go for a backpack, some even expandable backpacks like the one’s used for trekking. Though that is a great prospect when considering the amount of space one can utilize. But from personal experience riding long distance with a heavy backpack/blown out back pack can mean trouble, especially in the form of early fatigue, shoulder pain and other problems, which might make the trip not so pleasant and even turn it into a potential risk factor.
So what are the options we have with us ? The answer to the problem is the wonder creations called Tank bags/Saddle bags/Tail bags whichever that suits the amount of stuff you are planning on carrying with you. These can be fixed onto the motorcycle with straps / bungee cords/ magnets. They take away the weight of the luggage from the shoulders of the rider and give a pleasant riding experience. Of course one must be careful in choosing the models of such stuff, to check if it suits one’s bike or can it be fixed properly and that it won’t wiggle off or shake around during a trip , which can spell disaster.
