How often have you been riding somewhere with the assistance of GPS, and it tells you to turn here and it’s a field? What about into a lake? We’ve all been there, told to take a phantom route. Don’t get me wrong, I do use a GPS from time to time, but I am one of those people that really likes to use a map. This type of navigation can be difficult riding a motorcycle, having to make more frequent stops to check the map, it can add a lot of time to your trip. That is until now! K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has discovered a tank mount Deluxe Map Holder and Travel Bag assembly. This bag not only keeps the map in front of you so you can reference it at any point, but it also has “saddlebags” to give you additional storage.
This little gem is 27″L x 16-1/2″W giving you more than enough room to lay out the days route right in front of you. Produced by Hopnel, the leader in high quality, functional, aftermarket bags and accessories. This map holder is designed to work on Honda Gold Wing GL1800 models (due to deployment area, this is not suitable for Air Bag models) and give the rider the ability to break from technology and return to the days of reading a map. You also gain ample storage for things you need to keep close at hand. Wallet, Cell Phone, MP3 player, Registration and more. For those individuals reliant on technology, the waterproof map pocket will hold an iPad or Tablet if you prefer to plot your course on one of the many mapping programs available. Either way, you have enough room for your map (digital or hard copy) as well as room for a sandwich and drink.
When it comes to a great way to store your map and other things too, make sure you turn to Hopnel and their Deluxe Map Holder. Ditch that GPS and get there the Old Skool way, with a MAP. Contact your friends at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) and order up one for yourself. Even though the season has begun, it’s not too late to change your ways.
