An adventure motorcyclist requires certain tools to aid them in exploring the world by trail and lonesome highway. One such tool is a paper map. We’ve all done it: let the GPS run out of battery, accidentally forgot to load our tracks or lost service on our cell phones. Surveying your route on a tiny GPS screen can be a challenge as well. When our electronics fail us, we turn to our paper maps. And we try to do it quickly! Pulling out a paper map, stuffed into whatever crevice we deemed “accessible,” isn’t always as painless or swift as we had hoped.


The BarPack Mapcase is a thin handlebar mounted map holder that removes the stress of searching for your map. It also keeps paper maps protected from the elements and tearing. It’s far less bulky than the typical tank bag-map case combination that can get in your way while riding off-road, and it has enough room inside for a pen, notepad or cell phone.

  1. This is not a simple bolt on item (Tusk 1 1/8″ handlebar). Even the photo shows you need something like the Roxx bar risers to make it bit as the stock mount is for 7/8″ bars. This fact was not mentioned in the article.
