I'm planning a (no passenger) cross country trip this summer and need some opinions on my packing plans. My bike is a Fatboy with a Corbin solo saddle and HD’s (small) saddlebags. First of all, I plan to travel light and stay in motels so a few changes of clothes, some minor toiletries, a few tools, raingear, cell phone etc. is all I need to pack. I have a Harley brand travel/duffle (part #98834-84) which is a cylindrical (11" x 23") bag which can be bungeed to the top of the headlamp/passing lights (and in front of the handlebars) - basically "Then came Bronson" style. The saddlebags can hold gloves, goggles, small tool kit (need recommendations plz), disc lock, rain suit, etc. If I need more gear than that, I was thinking of getting a second water-resistant duffle from REI (or any other recommendations?) and securing it across the “shelf” created by the top of the rear fender and saddlebag tops. I would think that the friction of the wind and vibration would scuff the top of the fender in short order. Do you think that a piece of micro-fiber cloth on top of the fender (perhaps taped to the bottom of the duffle) would alleviate the problem? Any other thoughts?
