You'll probably have to look in your local natural food store or food co-op. snohobo uses one in a plastic case. I get the ones in blue or gray drawstring bags.

Why hasn't anyone suggested deo creams in a can?Any drug store will have it in multiple brands.

Trip tip

1 Buy baby wipes
2 Buy ziplock bags
3 Put babywipes in ziplock
4 Use one at a time for when you need to feel "fresh"
5 Wipes have multiple uses aside from odor control so no need to bring TP along
6 Ziplock bags (bigger sizes) keep clothes moisture and dust free, and when full of ice and placed on stomache, keeps you cool when it is hot and traffic is slow.

I always take a can of Right Guard along, works good in the boots too, excelllent for potato cannon fuel, flame thower when used with a lighter and if need be an improvised explosive device I don' skimp on having my right guard I hate roll ons, they matt my underarm hairs into dreadlock

Easy to carry as chain lube and won't melt either, it pays to carry your RG

Chain Lube works great...and it's good for 1,000 miles or so depending on your sweat glands and the temperatures.

After a nasty hot ride back from Washington to California (left Washington in a drizzle and hit the Cali border at ~100 degrees) I found that I needed to carry the smallest can of Lysol I could find. Spray the jacket insides every night. Made a HUGE difference in the stink factor at the stops.

Embrace the funk. Subvert the dominant paradigm. Go deodorant free. Just don't ride near me, Really folks, motorcycle specific deodorant? Really?

Axe spray deodorant comes in small travel sizes and can be used to spray down the inside of your jacket too.

I have seen these at my local pharmacy but I would have to agree that smelling like a hells angel on any given bike trip has never been an issue. How close are you getting to your ride buddies anyway?

I had the gel melt in my truck before. Truck smelled great for a while though.

I use gold bond powder on bike trips, Handful in each pit, and one on the balls. Works great.

Weird, not questioning that you had this happen...but I have been thru extended rides (as in days on end) in temps in excess of 105 degrees F, as reported in the shade by the National Park or weather service, and never noticed a problem. I have been on tarmac so hot my kick stand sunk into the ashpalt while parked!

Hottest rides:

Death Valley in August.
Big Bend NP in late May.
Sturgis in early August can be wicked hot.

I usually pack the full size Speed Stick unscented or 'powder' anti-perspirant deodorant. I always have it packed in my Swiss Army bath kit and tucked in a saddle bag. Maybe the bath bag and saddle bags shield some of the heat? I have used hard shell BMW bags and cordura soft luggage to good effect.

Check out http://www.minimus.biz/default.aspx for all kinds of travel items, in packets that won't melt in your tank bag or luggage. They've got it all.



These are nice little energy boosters for those times when you're in the Nevada desert.



They even have organic !!



Oh, yeah, and don't forget the SPAM !!!
