Question Getting to hockey on my wee?

I know there are plenty of northern neighbors riding stroms so this problem should be solved already.

How can I get my hockey gear & sticks to the rink via my wee? I'm thinking placing the bag long ways from the passenger seat to the rear luggage rack and ratchet-strapping it firmly into place. Then just slide the sticks in somehow...

What's the general consensus on this?

I do it all the time. I place the bag sideways on the carrier rack, bungee it down with two bungee cords. I place my stick vertically, blade up, on the right side of the bike, through the bag handle and through a loop I've tied in the bungee cord on the right side of the bag. I extend the right side passenger peg and bungee the top of the stick to the passenger peg. This is good for freeway speeds, very stable.

I don't have any pics, but will try to remember to take one tomorrow.
PM me so I don't forget.

Wouldn't your hockey gear qualify as ATTGATT?

Have you smelled used hockey gear?

I don't want my wee stinking like that.

Oh, so like across the luggage plate & where the side bags would go? Are you concerned about melting the bag on the exhaust?

I'll def PM you to remind you because I really have to see this! I'm stoked to make this happen. I have two games this weekend and I would love to use the strom.

No, but my ex-girlfriend has.

Apparently it's an aphrodisiac.

um, oh wow. aphrodisiac? hardly. I mean, imagine wearing something touching your skin as you sweat profusely for over an hour, then take that something and stuff it into a bag, not be washed, ever. Then multiply that by several somethings all jammed into the same bag. Then repeat this process over and over and over for many games over time...

If our team plays after a college or high school team has played (any team where parents are no longer in charge of cleaning the kids gear) it's a frikkin awful stench.

My own gear is as clean as it can reasonably be kept. What can I say? I'm not into skin rashes or staph infections. That being said, "clean as it can reasonably be kept" still stinks quite a bit. Ha!

Default Hockey Gear

I purchased a PVC pipe, cut a couple inches out lengthwise, built straps and used 1/4" aluminum to build a side mounted carrier. I remove one side of the Jesse luggage and mount it up. I use it to carry a water ski. Would work great for a hockey stick and post game laundry. Looks a bit "unique" but I can use it to commute 180 miles round trip. Can supply a pic if you are interested.

Even though I'm in Canada I'm not into hockey but I can see how to load you stuff. If your bag is less than four or so feet long I would just put it sideways across the seat.

If you had side racks I would tie the stick to one and have it sticking up and back behind you.
