where to put the gear?

Ok,
I go running to the lake (north beach area)in the summer. I absolutely love it, it feels refreshing especially on a hot summer night. It would be perfect to ride there, but where do i put my gear- jacket and helmet??
any ideas??

You can lock your helmet on the bike (does the bike hahhve a helmet lock?) and you can take a kryptonite or bicycle chain and feed it through the jacket sleeves and lock it up to the bike also.

There are better chains out there... lock the stuff up to be sure, but I don't think anyone will be that desperate to brake a chain and lock to steal a woman's riding jacket and a small size helmet.... put a lock on the motorcycle as well (wheel lock)... if you don't, the bike itself might not be there when you come back from your run.

Jenya, Locks are expensive. and they are extremely heavy, you have to have some kind of backpack and or a tank bag to carry them in. do you have one? I loaned mine out to this chick i know, I can get it back and let you use it if you want it

The wonderful world of GIVI hard bags. Work great for locking things up, keeping things dry, and as crash protection.

They are super expensive too, plus I still haven't figured out how to lock a tank bag (and it’s contents) to the bike

Locks are not that heavy or expensive, I can fit a disk lock under my seat, or in my jacket pocket, you can take a chain lock and tie it around you waist under your jacket while riding.

IMO, sportbikes and running or hiking…. That just doesn’t mix unless you have hard bags on your bike to lock up your stuff… it can be done but it’s just a pain in the A

Tank bags: That's one of the reason we've designed my tank bag to be easisly removable with all the electical gizmos I pack. This way when I pull up to an unsafe location, hotel, and/or rest areas I can lock things up quickly. I'm on probably my 6th or 7th tankbag. I'm currently using a Wolfman tankbag. It's met all my needs and expectations.

Safety: I've also have heard of riders leaving gun holsters on their bikes while they sleep at rest areas. Not that they are carrying guns but to someone looking at an empty holster they might think otherwise.

I agree with Vivid, go to a bike shop (You are close to Dan's Bike Shop, Roosevelt just east of Oak Park Ave, ask for Nick, tell him Alan sent you) get a New York Bike Chain, ain't nobody stealing it with that on. As for being heavy, well maybe 10 lbs. but worth carrying in a bag or under the seat if it fits.

That's one of the funniest (and most obvious) things I've heard of.

I'm guessing $35-$50, but if you talk to Nick I'm sure he'll cut you a deal.

I've done the bit with a cable lock for years to secure my bike and gear. I used to use a lock and cable you could tow a tank with. It's still around and I've had it since 1974. Now I just use a middle weight Kryptonite cable with a built in lock. I got it on sale at Sportmart for $20ish. All you can really do is make it a pain for someone to go after your stuff. If they really want it they will get it.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
