Cheap hacks

Recommended Posts

If you need to haul groceries or a couple 12 packs, stop by super walmuck and grab:
 
1 plastic file tote ( back to school area. Looks like a milk crate)
4 3-ft web strap with buckles (found in the camping/sporting good area)
 
These components will set you back $10 bucks or so.
 
Take the passenger pillion off and flip it over. Pull those straps out and reinstall the pillion. Use two of your new web straps to attach the milk crate thing to the seat straps. Use the other two straps to cinch the crate to the loops on the passenger pegs.
 
Viola old school biker trunk. You can haul all kinds of crap now.
 
Keep a plastic trash bag under the seat in case you gotta haul something on a rainy day. I'd keep a few of those web straps under there too. They're handy as a shirt pocket.

That's the way to do it :)
 
Even though I have a car now, I still think about everyday practicalities of motorcycles.

Do you want to maximize your cargo area? always ask an Asian "biker".

Advance auto sells little stick-on mirros that kinda match the shape of the mirrors that came with the bike. They're $9. I put a pair on and they do a good job of letting me see the blind spot.
 
The inner part of the stick mirror is mostly worthless so I put them there. Quite a few folks wanted to sit on my 07 this weekend and everyone liked the mirrors.
