Nothing says adventure quite like a big, multi-cylinder adventure bike with hard luggage mounted. And if those large aluminum boxes have stickers from various countries it’s even better. I’ll be candid – I like those big boxes. The good ones are lockable, waterproof, and dustproof. The last large adventure bike I owned had those same type of boxes mounted on them. However, the question isn’t whether you like hard luggage; the question is if hard luggage is an appropriate choice for adventure riding. I wrote this article to provide you with information you might want to know before making your choice.
