A good idea, almost!


I picked up a few extras the other day, payday being the best time of the month to do so 🙂 They came really quickly, quicker than expected so fitting them is taking a while. I chucked the easy one on last night.

The fender bag holds whatever you want, but is designed for a spare tube. I managed to squeeze a front and rear tube in, plus a pair of short levers. It’s a great idea in theory, spare tubes to hand of you need them, without them ever getting in the way.

Unfortunately the KLR front guard isn’t up to the job. Too flexible. Mounting closer to the forks would help, but the headlight gets on the way. I could get a front fork brace, but that just adds extra weight. Hey ho, back to the drawing board for now….

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
