It’s already started. The bitty bag noise. He he he. I knew someone would say something about it and it only took one day!
“Gee, those are some tiny saddlebags you have on your bike.”
Yes, they are. I happen to LIKE them!
If you didn't know, I installed my Saddlebags on my Harley on Saturday.
I don’t feel the need or have the desire to carry around the kitchen sink on the back of my motorcycle. In my typical female-ness—if I have the space, I need to fill it....to the brim.
So, what’s in my right saddlebag (feel like you are peeking into someone’s medicine cabinet when you use their restroom?)……
Rain gear, (top and bottom)
Registration, proof of insurance, emergency contact card
Riding lenses (clear, yellow, bronze)
12-volt lead w/phone and iPod charging cable (I moved it from under my tank to my bag)
Couple of grocery bags
Small cosmetic bag—‘girl stuff’, couple of granola bars, Kleenex, baby wipes, bandaids, benedryl, extra contact lens, case, and lens solution, toothbrush, toothpaste, and tylenol.
Couple of tools
My right bag is full, my left bag is basically empty. I can put my jacket liner, extra shirt and stuff I normally don’t carry as needed. I use the steel cable and thread it through my leather jacket arms and wrap it around the one saddle bag. It secures the jacket to the bike and locks the bag as well.
What else do I need?? I can’t think of anything else.
Besides, if I ever need to go somewhere where there is no place to buy anything, I’ll just invite my friend Karla along. She carries everything!!!
Keep the shiny side up!
