I Ride A Motorcycle Daily: 6 Things I Wish People Knew


What Do You Do For Luggage?

For luggage, the Triumph Sprint ST has great hard saddlebags which swallow a full-face helmet or even my work laptop. Now the hardbags do affect the bike’s handling a bit, so I leave them off unless I need to have them on. Without the hard bags on the bike, I just use a backpack like you see a lot of people doing. The backpack makes me sweat due to the lack of venting, so I avoid that if the weather†is hot.

I also go grocery shopping on the bike and stuff whatever into the backpack or hardbags. I can’t carry a ton, but it’s not a big deal. Honestly, for 99% of the things you’d want to transport or do on a daily basis, a motorcycle is just fine.
