Moab Motorcycle Trip: Gearing Up

In the final week before our trip I've been working on the details. That means little things like hand grips, tool storage, water storage, etc.

I took a trip to Home Depot and made a tool tube from PVC pipe. Then I strapped it across my crash bars. It fits perfect and holds all my tools plus a rag and my CO2 cartridge tire inflation kit.

I also dug up my comfort grips and slid them on. Feels nice and squishy now. This should help with the long distance riding.

Finally, I went to REI and picked up a fuel bottle and a water bottle. Plus, they had some cool bottle holders that I'm going to bolt onto my panniers.

I put everything in place for a dry fit just to see how it would look. I might put the bottles in a different spot. But it's looking pretty good. I can't wait to hit the road next week and put it all to the test!
