TOUR NOW, TOUR OFTEN. DO IT WITH VENTURA
Just when you think some smart-arse has designed a bike you can’t fit luggage to, those clever Kiwis at Ventura rub his nose in it and come up with a Ventura system that fits.
I have toured many miles with Ventura gear, and it’s always worked, lasted well, and only ever failed once, but that was after a mate catapaulted the bike down a cliff and it cartwheeled a few times. Pretty much everything was broken on it that day.
The Gearsacks and L-brackets you use to fit them up are the stuff of legend. All bike stuff should be this well made.
And now there are Astro top-boxes as well. I acknowledge their practicality, but the challenge to my manhood is simply too extreme for me to fit one to anything ever. More secure men need not have the same issues.
