A Bike will carry Anything?

For all you hairy biker types and those that wish you were.

A Bike will carry Anything?

Well, I know bikes will carry anything, but is it really wise to use a sling bag off-the-shoulder?

TNT stopped their riders using those bags other than in & out of the buildings as one of them lost a bag including contents down the M1

Its fine until you crash (extra personal injury) :no: , just as bad is wearing the heavy duty motorcycle chain lock.

Deja vu Jack, deja vu....:wink:

They can be handy tho'.........a biker working for me lost his bag ( including collections) off the pillion seat on the City rd which unbelievably was picked up by another biker who worked for an account we held, my number was in the bag.......i had it back in my possession inside an hour..........the meet up with the biker to get his collections was a bit of fun as I let him squirm a bit........the look on his face as i handed his bag back was well worth it. It was a big break for me too though as it had half a dozen clients work in it...,,phew!!.....and yeah the good guy got a drink.

Funnily enough I found one of these bags in my parents loft the weekend while i was clearing out some of my old stuff.

Going to try to change the name label and keep it on the bike .

hooked a car mirror with mine the once , thankfully at very slow speeds so nothing happened , i got used to bungying the bag to the top box not long after that as it was easier than having it flap around or giving you a dead leg when you forgot about it and stuck your foot on the footrest

I can understand losing the bag on the motor way, but how could it end up in the loft? are you sure this is not one of the many that Santa losses every year?

TNT banned the use of them whilst riding when a rider dropped on on the M1 along with the contents of a bank run, after that they all had to be stowed away in transit
