Definetly the Camelbak BFM. I use it with the optional 6liter bladder with inline water filer and the Camelbak water pump.
It's definetly the most versatile backpack I have ever owned. And I have used many backpacks, military and hiking. Compress it down to standard size or fill it up with Laptop, clothes, toolkit, first aid kit,...
MANY compartments, sturdy construction many important small details. Amazing. Comfortable to wear, not too big to be uncomfortable on the bike.
Add MOLLE pouches for even more space.

Just a note: Filters don't remove viruses. They will remove the chemical taste of the stuff used to kill them.

Oh please. Lighten the fuck up. The best bike in the world? The one you're riding. Now go start your own "I Love the GS" thread.

Buffalo Airflow summer jacket. Comfy, protected but lets the air through - lovely. No more sweaty sunny journeys.

Yo. Brother.


Criminey am I bored...what else is there?

Nose hair clippers. Here's why, certain RPM nose hairs vibrate and tickle the hell out of me...it's maddening on a high-mileage ride.
