Who knew that this lockdown would increase the potential to test the functionality of our long term Indian Chief Vintage?
This classic-bagged tourer has visited all but two of Burton-on-Trent’s supermarkets over the last weeks, keeping three of us fed from a small fridge and a small freezer – which prevents me from doing fewer, bigger shopping trips (officer) – and yes, all this did fit in to the two panniers … and they were securely closed.
And no, we haven’t lost a single egg yet and I must have carried a couple of dozen over the weeks now in anything from an empty pannier to this. And I realised as I fastened the QD straps this time that I couldn’t remember which bag I’d packed them in.
Then it was a quick blast back to the Hornsbase Bunker – as my mum’s conservatory has become known – to restock the larder.
When I’ve got time, if you’re really unlucky, I’ll share that journey with you, but for now I’m making the most of the opportunity to tidy up the warehouse/workshop, between interesting and exciting phone calls relating to what kind of world we will emerge into.
Stay safe out there, and if you have an essential journey to make, make the most of it!
