Saddlemen Waterproof Storage PacksNot all motorcycles have waterproof luggage, and not all apparel is waterproof. But this shouldn’t prevent motorcyclists from getting precious items wet, such as cell phones or electronic tablets, in case of rainfall.
This is where Saddlemen comes in with its Waterproof Pak storage packs. These Waterproof Paks, which are offered in handy Lanyard or Handle-Top versions, offer protection from water, moisture and dust. Either wear the lanyard around the neck under a jacket, or toss bigger items in the handle-top versions for added protection in saddlebags, tankbags or bookbags.Each translucent pouch is made of a tough rubber-like marine vinyl that keeps the elements out and whatever possessions safe inside. These pouches feature wide heat-welds around the edges and a two-stage sealing system to ensure that nothing gets in or out.The translucent pouch walls allow motorcyclists to easily identify packed cargo.The Waterproof Paks are available in two different styles and a total of five different sizes to accommodate a variety of items.Saddlemen Lanyard Waterproof Paks:The two Lanyard Waterproof Paks are designed to house smaller items like cell phones, wallets, travel documents or other personal items. Both the small (5.5” x 3.4 inches) and large (6.0” x 4.5”) versions feature nylon lanyards with an adjusting bead to fit securely around your neck or to attach to a piece of luggage.Saddlemen Handle-top Paks:The large Handle-top Paks can fit laptops, documents or even articles of clothing from dust and moisture.The three Handle-Top Waterproof Paks are designed for larger items like full-size documents, some laptops, clothing items and more. The small (14.2” x 13.0”), medium (15.75” x 9.5”) and large (19.7” x 13.7”) Handle-Top Paks feature an incorporated carrying handle that also serves as an extra level of waterproof sealing.Saddlemen Waterproof Paks:

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
