just few short hints for the bike equipment necessary for the long rides.
Gel seat pad, cost me less than 5 euro, at the local "sort of" wall mart shop. Made for bicycle originally.
It works great on my custom seat. Less pain in the spine on the long rides.
5 euro gps/smartphone holder.
Bag like this and duck tape can be used against the rain:
The connectors are from the car stereo which i don't use. Now i will use them to plug in and charge the smartphone while riding.
Doesan't stick out from the bike like bad improvisation anyway:
Note: the smartphone holder isn't recommended for off road. Than again it holds pretty strong on highways even on top speed. Always keep the phone plugged in with the charging cable for extra security in case flying off the bike.
Heavy duty plastic bag is recommended for rain.
That is all for now
