Motorcycle riding kit packed into a kit bag

by Jim Blackstock |

There will be times when you need to travel in a car or van or even, by train or air and need to carry your gear with you; you might be heading to a trackday in the van, you may be heading off on a riding holiday in a faraway land or you may simply be going to collect a new bike to ride it home.

But whatever the reason for the trip, you are travelling with your riding gear but not wearing it.

As we have seen in the past when we looked at helmet bags, looking after your kit and keeping it safe is vitally important. It will be no good to you if it has become damaged in transit and could leave you stranded in this case.
