2. Carrying Capacity

Motorcycle Luggage

Luggage – hard or soft – bungee cords, cargo nets, etc., are necessary for non-touring bikes with no factory-included carrying capacity. One of my personal favorites for touring on a non-touring motorcycle is the Ventura Bike-Pack System. The multi-use system can carry the waterproof bags, but also to it can be attached a sleeping bag, a tent, even firewood. But nothing’s 100% water-tight, so consider wrapping clothing in trashbags prior to packing your luggage. Bringing a nylon clothesline is recommended, because, eventually, something’s gonna get wet.
