    My new Arkel T-42's

    My commuter is looking more tour-ish than commute-ish.
    But I'm liking it!

    I'm also riding new Armadillos.

    How much stuff do you drag back and forth everyday?

    My mantra was to whittle it down to the minimum possible load. Shirt, pants, socks, underwear. Sack lunch.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    how much...

    Well, I'm in the Navy, so the backpack thing was really messing up my uniform. Sometimes, I have to bring 2 uniforms to work if there is a dressy event going on.

    I have enough stuff to change out 2 tubes and patch more (good thing because I had 3 flats in one day - the day I gave in and bought the Armadillos). I carry a decently equipped first aid kit, sunscreen, and anything else I can think of that I may need.

    The T42's are waaaaay more room than I need, but now I have - well, way more room than I need rather than hoping its enough.

    What do you think? Like them?
