Luxury Motorcycle Adventure Gear
As motorcyclists we know it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. But there’s something to be said for having some creature comforts on hand when you reach your goal. Whether you’re heading off on your first motorcycle crusade or you’re a seasoned tourer, these modest additions to your motorcycle adventure gear will make your time out of the saddle much more enjoyable.
Ghost Outdoors Packable Hammock
If youíre heading out on an overnight ride there’s a good chance youíll be spending the evening surrounded by trees. That exact scenario is when the Ghost Outdoors Packable Hammock is in its prime. Made from ultra-light parachute nylon the hammock and all its hardware weigh a measly 520 grams and pack into a carry bag thatís only 16cm x 10cm. When unpacked the Ghost Outdoors Packable Hammock measures a generous 2.6m x 1.4m. To ensure you can relax as quickly as possible the hammock is a cinch to hang thanks to two included 2m climbing rope tree attachments and their accompanying carabiners.
Solar Camp Shower
We love the sense of achievement that comes with roughing it in the wild but can do without the bodily odours that go with it. An outdoor solar camp shower is a great way to stay fresh on your next road trip. Using the suns rays this 20-litre solar shower can deliver a refreshing flow of warm water via its 27-inch flexible hose. Simply fill it up and leave the PVC pouch in a well-exposed place to heat up. Youíll be the envy of your travel buddies and more likely to make new friends on the road since they quite literally wonít avoid you like a bad smell.
Apotheke Charcoal Bar Soap
Whatís the point of taking a shower if you donít have any soap? The Apotheke Charcoal Soap Bar is the ultimate in camping luxury. Each bar is made by hand and features all-natural ingredients that will cleanse and moisturise your skin. The soap’s main ingredient is sourced from coconuts which have been mixed with 3 kinds of natural oils. A bevvy of sweet-smelling essential oils including cedarwood, sandalwood and smokey amber will leave you the best smelling biker in the campsite. But never fear, no one will be questioning your manhood because this toiletry treat is a badass looking black.
Stanley Classic Flask
We donít advocate drinking and riding, but when youíve reached your destination a celebratory drink sounds ideal. The Stanley Classic Flask is built to last. Made from 18/8 stainless steel itís rustproof and as tough (probably tougher) as rusty nails. Thanks to its svelte dimensions itíll easily fit into a jacket pocket or the corner of a backpack. The flask also features a wide mouth allowing you to fill it, or empty it, with ease. Best of all with a capacity of 1 cup (8 oz) it holds enough of your favourite grog to share with your companions or to see you through several nights of travel.
