I'm writing to female riders and passengers as I am both. Also, I'm a recovering chronic overpacker.
Starting with whatever warm-weather base layer I'm wearing before departure, my preference is to pack only one other of the very same.
Preparing for a solo motorcycle trip is one thing but riding two up presents an entirely different set of challenges.
There’s a lot of psychological gravity involved with long distance motorcycling. For one, keeping the motorbike nimble means packing as little as possible.
