After we've decided what we're going to take, we must give consideration to how we're going to place the items in our luggage. Some forethought about what you might need to have accessible on the roadside will save you from the cursed digging. Common items we leave on top of the right saddlebag or in external compartments include glove changes, lip balm, rags and faceshield cleaner, a sweatshirt or jacket liner, sunscreen and sunglasses. It's also helpful to compartmentalize your luggage by employing several thin, liner-type bags. This way you can separate your street clothes (both clean and dirty), rain gear, sundries and other items.
