Or, 'Can I take my evening suit, heated hair straighteners and stilettos ?'
2 weeks before you go, look out everything you want to take and lay it on
the living room floor. I mean it, everything....
Have a laugh, see how much you can get in the panniers..... No ? I thought
Critically appraise every item: evaluaute its
usefulness - I would quite like to take that, it might be handy - vs - I'm
not going 2 weeks without toothpaste !
bulk - note well, it is size, as well as weight, which is important.
Usefullness vs bulk is a personal decision, but:
You do not need a thick woolly jumper, far too bulky for what its
You always take a roll of insulating tape.
And no, we do not have room for your stilettos..... .. no, not even if
we leave the insulating tape at home.
On appraising every item, either
Put it back in the cupboard it came from
Put it in the 'Maybe' pile
Put it in the 'Definitely Going' pile.
You will now get the 'definitely going' stuff in the bags. So, revisit the
'maybe' pile, and maybe a few things can sneak back in.
Leave yourself a bit of slack, because packing on your nice dry living room
floor is one thing. Packing for the fifth day in a row- things never seem to
get packed so neatly.
Now you have it all packed.- put it on the bike and go for a long ride. If you
are taking a pillion, take the pillion. Now is the time to find out whether the
panniers hit the exhaust, whether the pillion can get their leg swung over
the top box, in full bad-weather riding kit.
Find out whether you need to look in the manual for how to jack up the rear
suspension, increase tyre pressures, re-align the headlight. These are not
the sort of things to be doing 5 minutes before you leave for the ferry.
