Luggage space is limited on a motorcycle, unless of course you have one of those bikes which look more like a mobile home than a quick get away. The majority of the time my luggage box is crammed to the limit with college textbooks, bike locks and spare clothing in case it gets cold. But the 5 things that you will always find in there are:
1 - Bike lock
No matter where I am going, I always have my lock with me in case I need to leave it somewhere. It would be silly not to have it anyway!
2 - Phone charger
I have a very lovely phone, but being an Android it guzzles up battery quicker than I can charge it, and the last thing I want is to be stuck at a friends not being able to contact someone because I can’t remember their number.
3 - Spare clothes
No matter how hard I try, I always end up cold, so having spare clothes to wear if the weather decides to be mean is always a good plan.
4 - My camera
I have two cameras, and one of which is much too expensive to have with me 24/7 but I like having the little compact with me, just in case I see a photo opportunity whilst out and about.
5 - A drink or snack
You never know when you might get hungry. As for me, I often get very painful cramps if I haven’t eaten at the right time, or eaten enough. Sure enough I could survive without the food, but it would make the bike journey just that little bit less fun.
And an added bonus, my glove box also contains a mini first aid kit... better to be safe than sorry!
So there you have it; the five essential things you will find in my luggage box. What would/ or do you put in yours?
