Hmm well, what do we have here? A whole bunch of crap stuffed into a bag!
- Firstly I have a 65L ‘cuba’ Black Wolf backpack which has a small 15 L daypack. I bought this on sale for just under $200 dollars from Anaconda Stores. Usually retails around the $250 mark. Very well made with plenty of room and a rain cover built-in. Lockable zips and plenty of compartments.
- I roll up all my clothes to pack in better.
- I have a toiletries bag to make showering easier when staying in hostels.
- A quick dry towel works wonders when you are on the move.
- My camera is a GOPRO Hero 4 with numerous attachments for motorcycle videos. I have the duel charger and 4 spare batteries. The wi-fi remote is a must have addition for ease of use in many different scenarios. I also use the GOPRO selfie stick because it can be used as a tripod and has other bendable positions for getting those cool shots. I keep all this stuff in the GOPRO travel case
- My 13″ Macbook Air which I use for video editing,blogging, and everything else.
- 2 jumpers
- 2 pairs of jeans
- 3 shirts
- 1 pair shorts
- 5 pairs jocks
- 1 pair sandals or thongs
- 1 pair Converse All-Stars
- 1 scarf
- 2 personal padlocks and 1 bag lock(for hostel lockers etc)
- iPhone 5c unlocked
- small torch
So what stuff do you strap to your moto?
- small travel tent (generally the cheaper it is, the wetter you get when it rains)
- spare fuel container
- 2 spare tubes and puncture kit (or repair strips and piercing tool if you have airless tyres)
- chain and large padlock (for motorbike)
- GOPRO mounts everywhere
The key is to travel light. The more crap you have the more of a pain in the ass it is. More crap to lose and more crap for people to steal. Keep your stuff close and in sight, or otherwise locked away in the hostel. Chain and padlock your bike when you are leaving it somewhere. Also have a lockable fuel cap to stop your go-go juice from being stolen. If it isn’t locked down or tied up there is a 100% chance it will not be there when you get back.
