Touring setup for 2019

As part of my touring setup for next year, I have purchased the Kriega Duo 36 Saddlebags. Throw over luggage for my Yamaha XSR900. They are fully adjustable and easy to fit. They suggest a £90 support frame for the XSR900, but I decided to simply fashion some aluminium side panels to protect the bags from rubbing against the tyres.

I bought some 1.5mm Aluminium sheet from Wickes. I created a cardboard plan first before transferring it to the metal plate. With a hacksaw and metal file, I cut and shaped it until I was happy with it.

The Journey

A short investigation of a journey. I take many road trips, stopping at the service stations in Great Britain. These are the forgotten memories of our holidays and brief encounters with other travellers that are not documented. It's important to remember the incident of life and that although not so important, they did exist, albeit briefly.
