Honda CT125, Postie Bike, Packing for 48 States

Everything listed and linked below is what I carried to ride for 57 days and 12,000 miles around the contiguous 48 states, this was the route…

On this…

This is the gear I used, obviously, it could be substituted with stuff you already own, but the list fits inside my luggage, and as the trip was done on a minimal budget most of what’s listed is VERY cheap to buy.

The ride took place in late August, September and October temperate ranged from 108f (42c) to 28 f (-2c)
