I have read many threads about luggage / storage in the Solstice. Am getting ready to do a roadtrip so I thought I would photo the pack! I have done long journeys to Halifax and Atlanta with no storage issues as it was just me. This time it is different....the wife is coming!!!
We are going south of Montreal for the Quebec Solstice / Sky meet then carrying on to Quebec City. A total of five nights.
Pictures as follows:
1) Shows all the gear that will easily go into my Sol.
a) Solstice Computer Bag ( bought from Solstice Stuff before they ran out ) this will go behind my seat.
b) Kappasphere duffel bag
c) Motorcycle Tail bag - will mount on GM Luggage Rack. I customized this bag by removing all of the different belts and buckles that would be used to adhere on a motercycle rack....they might scratch
:. I found two "Pontiac Red" bungee cords that will go through loops on top. Bottom has a non scratch pad plus I will put a shammy towel under it. Major shout out to Rob The Elder as he gave me the idea...I lucked out and found the perfect bag.
d) Tote bag by Kappasphere - will go behind wife's seat.
e) Solstice Cooler Bag - not using side attachments to save space. A Latin Venom masterpiece!!! Cold libations are a must after a day of top down driving.
Next two pictures show Motorcycle tail bag on luggage rack. The loops on the top of the bag keep bungee cords in place which allows me to mount it length wise and have more rearview visibility. Final two show trunk with two items for when top is down.
and then the motorcycle bag added in case of rain.
Bag is waterproof but with roof up I would have no rearview mirror visibility.
So there you have it. A Sol packed for a five night trip...no problemo!!!
