Transporting beer

I packed some Guinness in the topbox [Guinness tastes good warm] Rode up to the Bald Eagle Bastard's 7 Mts campout. Had a blast. Unfortuanatly the nitrogenated cans also had a blast. All over everything in the Givi E-52. I suspected it might be a problem, but took the gamble and lost. Just posting this to maybe save the next guy from some grief.

They best way I've found to carry beer is in a soft cooler riding in my lap. Really.

Packed a six pack of Coors in my Top box (Filled the top box with Ice too)on a two day 200 mile offroad ride. We stopped and set up camp and My Bud made the comment "Man a beer would sure be nice to have" So I walked over to my top box and popped a cold one for him. He looked like this guy then he looked like this guy . And I was doin this

Thumb Beer transportation

Silly concept...beer does not travel well...it is recommended that you don't even put beer in the door of your fridge as that is too much travel...(door swinging open on occasion). Purchased fresh from as close as it is brewed is the answer...

When in Rome....

Or Montana...

There are a few essential non-essentials that can be packed if you just give it some forethought: soft bread, eggs, fresh fruit, beer. I don't do any off-roading so I can buy most of that type stuff at the end of the riding day. For beer, a soft-side cooler can hold a six pack with ice and can even be carried like a back pack.

Should of mentioned that the 7 Mts campout ride that it took was all dirt and gravel. Pavement probably would not have been a problem. I told one of my friends about the beer transporting problem and he shook his head and said,

"One more reason you should start smoking pot"

Best beer I ever had was one you pulled out of that cooler and handed to me somewhere in the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico.

I like beer as much as the next guy, but carrying it on a motorcycle is too much of a pain. Takes up too much room, can't keep it cold, gets all shook up etc. This is a much more practical approach. Plastic travel model. We ride in Ar. frequently and there are a lot of dry counties down there.

I converted my tailpack into a padded cooler. It's big enough for a sixer and padded well enough that it shouldn't shake up drinks too bad. Hard to tell though, haven't tested it fully yet.

I've had bottles pop the cork, but never had a can explode. I've shook cans hard as a joke for a friend and never had one explode. I'm guessing something punctured a can.
