We purchased
much of our gear
second-hand
through
PacSafe eXomesh Pannier Protector
The Ritz-Carlton is not in our budget.  But our
tent is not the most secure place to store our
gear while we are out and about seeing the sites.  
Our PacSafe  eXomesh Bag Protectors allow us
to lock up our gear and leave it in the campsite in
our tent without having to worry all day that we're
going to get robbed.  While it is not Fort Knox it
keeps all but the most determined theives from
walking away with our gear.  We bought them on
eBay.
When parking your bike,
leave it in the hardest
gear - the one most
difficult to pedal.  That
way if a thief hops on and
tries to ride away, they will
have a tough time getting
away quickly.
We have not been
sponsored by any
company.
If a product stinks,
we'll tell you.

We also carry a six-foot
long flexible cable to lock
the bikes in guesthouses
or when shopping.  It get
locks with a combination
lock...no need to carry a
key.
Cycle Touring Reflective Vest Photo along with Schwalbe Marathon reflective tires.
This is Rich preparing to cycle out of the
Bangkok railway station at 4 a.m.  Notice
the reflective vest and reflective tape stuck
all over the bike.  Reflective vests are
available from almost any bicycle shop.  The
3M tape is the stuff used on highway guard
rails in the U.S.  We purchased strips of it on
eBay for a few dollars.
