As you prepare for Sturgis 6 Must-Have Motorcycle Travel Accessories
As you prepare for Sturgis (or any road trip, for that matter), be sure to pack your panniers with the following . . .
- No matter how powerful your headlights, they aren’t much help for inspecting tires or peering into fuel tanks, just two instances when Surefire’s 600-lumen LED Defender Ultra flashlight ($250) can prove illuminating.
- Flat when empty, expanded when full, HydraPak’s Stash 750 ($18) flexible bottle maximizes pack space and is much lighter than a hard bottle.
- Carved from a titanium billet, Benchmade’s anodized, single-piece 781 Anthem knife ($500) has a 3.5-inch blade, weighs just 3.7 ounces, and is more lust-worthy than some bikes.
- Saddleback’s full-grain leather Moleskine journal cover ($49 to $69), which has a strong pigskin lining, is stitched with marine-grade thread (as used on sails), and becomes more beautiful with age, will have you documenting your next road trip in style.
- With Weego’s Jump Starter 22 ($99), dead batteries—on phones, bikes, or even automobiles—are just minor inconveniences with this power pack.
- Tools don’t help when you can’t find them, but that’s an unlikely scenario when they’re stashed snugly in the slots of Red Clouds Collective’s handcrafted, waxed-canvas Landseer tool roll ($89), which closes securely with leather straps and solid brass buckles.
