Afraid so kooky.... like flicking channels on a Sky remote!

kwakgirl..... pleasure until those batteries leak and you get those nasty acid stains around your positive terminal!! ......

.....But, what is a guaranteed pleasure, is my set of Oxford throwover panniers. Lots of room in the expandable zippered compartment, with full waterproof covers. Double web under the rear seat with a click lock latch to prevent the top web from accidental fastening!

What's you're opinion, kwakgirl?

I take it 'ianhg1971' you don't like chilli, or for that matter, Brummie Jackie's car!!

That chilli sauce is a real pain to get out of car seat material..... It'll probably just stay there with all the other stains!!

do we need a white flag to join in this? all of above seem quite valid (luggage options i mean! waving flag here look!) however, over years... if your leaving bike /luggage to do tourist stuff, hard luggage more secure/ less stealable? top box throws weight a bit back? tank bags great for stuffing stuff...gloves for on payage?....drinks......chips on way back from sea.. hard panniers more rain proof over weeks trip? (get leather seats, the chilli tends to rub off then if your quick, 5 second rule helps if you eat it quick?)

Here, Yamahama. There are 2 blokes in your profile picture. Are you a double act or something? (like one called Yama and the other called Hama). Which one is you?

Also. I never ride wearing a rucksack. I always tie any bags to the bike, that way your protective clothing can do its job properly should you and your bike part company.

i had a rucksac with a built in (removable ) spine protector, which also had an expandable jip, to acomodate your helmet off the bike, worked well, though i feel less bulky without it , and using hard luggage drops your centre of gravity (cos we are at such a cutting edge of skills) and anything i can do to apear less bulky is good (it`s only a little post holiday weight!)

I've seen recommendations to carry laptops in rucksacks to insulate them from the bike's vibrations. Has anyone any comments about that?

Cataraptor @ 02/01/2011 18:38  

I insulate mine by leaving it at home

I am with you on that one Julie

Rather than risk my spine if I part company with the bike my 'top box' actually fits where the pilly seat goes, comes in handy for rallies or if I use the bike to go to work on, working in an accountants office it raises a few eyebrows still when I go in on the bike & then have a skirt & heels on in the office

why do you want to take a laptop on a bike Cat.

I don't at present but I used to as part of my job when I worked for riders' rights. Plenty of people who use a bike for work may want to do so. However, I always carried it in the tank bag when I took one on the bike and it didn't seem to do it any harm. Magazines suggested using a back pack to carry a lap top so I wanted to see how that squared with the discussion.
