30lbs of gear

Recommended Posts

I took my wr450 to the shop to get the suspension dialed. I thought it was important to know my actual riding weight. So I took my gear bag with me.

I weighed myself. 205lbs.

I then picked up my gear bag, which contains everything that I wear when I ride, including boots, leatt brace, chest protector, a 3/4 full water pack, moderate amount of tools, energy bar, etc...

The scale said.... 238lbs

that means that I strap on about 30lbs of gear when I ride.

That's incredible!

Does anyone have an idea of how much their gear really weighs?

Boots and helmet and tools are heavy. How much does your gear bag weigh? Why not get dressed and then weigh yourself with it all on?

I don't carry and excessive amount of stuff for an off road rider. I like to ride long distances in rough and remote areas. I do need to be prepare to do some basic maintenance.

My gear bag isn't all that big and it weights about 5 lbs.
