Need help with this question!
Hi I'm an australian that is planning on a RTW on a honda XR400. I'm in Kuala Lumpur at the moment about to buy bike in Thailand. Not really sure about how to approach the luggage situation, i have a few objectives:
*About 75L of space
*will wear a backpack to carry essentials (SLR Cam, Passport, eePC..)
*Secure enough to leave on bike while i wonder around, but will only store cloathes and a few other things that are not vital.
So im thinking saddle bags? but i dont want huge bags as they look silly. Wit the backpack perhaps i only need 45-50Litres of space for the bags / paniers?
thanks for any help offered.
Backpack ? Ouch ?
I learned long ago to try to be as 'light' as possible on a motorcycle seat to avoid being driven down into the seat, which, on an XR400, ain't gonna give you much comfort anyway.
Panniers or soft bags will keep you a little more comfortable over long distances.
I use soft and a duffle/backpack, but they wouldn't be too secure if I left the bike alone for any length of time. For that locking panniers and top box would be much better.
Keep your daily stuff in a tank bag if you can.
Just some thoughts...
