My wife wants me to pick up dinner. I want to ride my bike. How do you guys recommend carrying carryout on my bike? I have no saddle bags or anything. Plenty of rope and bungees.

Thanks.

Top box. I used to get Chinese food, packed it into my side cases and took them to pre-designated, by my wife, picnic area. I once tried to carry pizza on the back adventure plate. I strapped it down to the bike and off I went. On the last turn onto the driveway the pizza went whammmm onto the pavement. We had pizza with shifted toppings.

Sandwiches/subs in a backpack? I usually just expand my tank bag and shove stuff in there to keep things from bouncing around in my tail box.

No top box or net. I'm picking up ribs and stuff in the traditional styrofoam container.

Topbox...except for pizzas and anything with >1 included drink. Then, it's the truck. Thinking about getting a rack for the topbox for pizza.

This is why top cases were invented. You're SOL for today, but get one.

I've had good luck balancing a pizza or 2 stacked on my tank between my forearms, haven't lost one yet
I saw one of your pics and was tempted to give it a try. But, odds are I wouldn't fare so well.

Sounds fun! Been there, done that.
First choice: a top box.
If you don't have one yet, it's worth it to get a top box. That is, if you want one.
There are some less expensive options from JC Whitney or ebay. Or even some soft bags maybe?
Second choice: a backpack. Your body won't shake up the food as much as something tied to the bike on a bumpy road.
Third choice: A basket or dry bag strapped to the rear seat or the rear carrier.
The hard part is the soda!! :)

Actually with the drinks, I carry a medium coffee from DD cross-bungeed to the rack three miles to work quite often and never lost one!

Fairly flat stuff works in the top case, drinks, etc go in the Trax side boxes. Working on a way to stabilize a drink carrier so it won't move around. We have a DQ down the street, and my wife likes blizzards. I'm only too happy to oblige. :) Have to remember to have them cap em. Made THAT mistake once. Eww...

Bestem 929 with lights baby! I pick up all manner of take out and groceries in this thing. It rocks! Plus you look like a UFO going down the road at night.
