Pre Trip Flash Back: Rain Hats
We have these nice helmets to protect our brains.
However they have holes in them, (the helmets, not our heads)
You'll also notice the snazzy brims attached to the front. Heather hoisted a couple of baseball caps out of a dumpster, cut them up and attached them to the front to help block the sun off our faces. They've also worked great with the rain and wind.
Here's another dumpster rescue. Heather made these seat covers from a broken umbrella.
Dual purpose is one of the necessities of the trip. The seat covers are removeable; when not needed to protect the bike seats from the rain they work great on our helmets.
