I am posting a complete list of my touring gear here over the next few months. During the winter I usually go through all my gear and take stock. Some items are in need of replacement others need a good cleaning etc… This year I am going to document the process and give a brief explanation as to how it earned its way into the touring kit. Since 2020 was a complete bust for touring with COVID restrictions , campground closings etc I was able to take some time and refresh a LOT of the gear. I will post a category first and then go through each item contained. The first on will be my Handlebar bag as that is the one that gets the most questions lately.

I hope you enjoy this and that it helps someone. I fully expect to hear from folks that have very different approaches. This is not in any way meant to be a “how to” site. It is just how I do it and one small opinion.
