    i just wanted to find out is here any guys riding mostly self-customised/built aircooled four-stroker´s?
    and what do u pack with you,when you head out to highways or countryroads etc.

    i ride 1240cc harley-davidson "zero" xlch ionhead with completely self made frame.


    i tend to overload tool-rolls and backpack when i kickstart it,and i could use some bright,serious ideas/tips to reduce the huge amount of tools and gear.

    Tools... a wrench, and matching socket for every bolt on the bike. Set of allen wrenches, small and med adjustable wrench, pliers, vice grip, screw drivers
    Tail bag ... extra visor for helmet, rain suit, set of thermal undies, glove liners, bottle of water, snack in bar form granola at the moment, oh and extra socks!

    my regualr EDC stuff goes in the tail bag while riding... i don't like things in my pocketses when riding so the pen, light, multi tool, cell etc... all go inthe front pocket of the tail bag.

    This is my around town back and fourth to work load... if going farther i'd add some other stuff... but not much. ... maybe a tube and some tire tools

    man i want to get some saddle bags... to put my stuff in...

    i ride a metric bike :poke: :beanie:... the only big difference in gear is going to be the metric tools ...

    The Royal Enfield Military comes with a tool kit (lock box bellow the seat on right side), although admittedly it is basic. The panniers - ammo can looking saddle bags, are for every/anything else. I'm still shopping for a hack which, will really let me go heavy.
