I've been reading the forum for a while but this is my first post.
Lots of good info here.
Anyway, I'm planning my first big tour and wonder if you have any tips for keeping gear safe?
Of course I'm going to bring a lock for my bike, but what do you guys generally do when you have to leave your bags unattended?
My feeling is as long as it looks like it would be a bit of work to open and rifle through the bags, no one will bother with it. But I'm curious if there are any tips.
My trip is across japan so any worrying about theft is most likely just that, a worry. But just trying to make sure it doesn't happen.
