    Default Where to get these stuff?

    Where can I get the following:
    • Waterproof pouches for mobile, cell (the ones that have a sealable opening
    • Reflective tape for affixing to luggage
    • Shoe cover for rain-riding. Don't trust Woddland much
    My usual source eBay India doen't have any of these.

    A good thread, I think there should be a list of items to be carried while on touring. Also a few must DIYs for tourers to learn.
    I know the list of tools is subjective, but even to the person who is a total newb at mechanical stuff (like me), the importance of carrying a spare key can never be over emphasized. We saw one guy who lost his brand new P-180 key at Kuntala Waterfalls last time&man was he worried!

How I rode from Kolhapur till Belgaum I don't remember at all. Only enjoyed riding through Kambakthi ghats. Was freaking awesome overtaking the Safaris and Swifts People were gaping on seeing someone riding with saddlebags, leaning.

    Kolhapur to Hubli is the best stretch. Very little pedestrian activity and traffic isn't much.
    That's too bad. But we were having some good fun riding and blasting down the roads. I now know why this route is preferred by most of the Saddle Sore riders.

    I usually just tuck into some chocolates or dry fruits. But if chocolate has that kind of an effect on you, then avoid it

    1) Zip-loc covers are available in any large departmental stores.
    2) Shoe cover available in a hardware shop (at least here).
    3) Same with reflective tape.

    Here are a few pics from the weekend:

    @Akhil: Man-In-Black. Make sure u stick some reflective tape wherever possible if u ride in the dark! Or only the H/L of ur R1 will be visible!!!

    What was GS doing in the Innova? That MT looks puny with GS on it man!!!Hahaha....

    That would be good, but then I won't get to carry my GPS cell with me.
