10 Affordable Farkles for Under $40

Upgrade your ride without downgrading your dough.

2. BarPack Folding Mapcase ($36.00)

  6″ x 10″ Folded Size
  5″ x 9″ Folded Map Window Size
  12″ x 18″ Unfolded Map Window Size

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.

  3. How did you put the bar ends back in that klr? Just did this mod on m y 2014 klr but don’t know how to put the bar ends back

  4. Coleman saddle pad is barely a half inch thick and pretty useless. I gave mine away for free after a 600 mile ride in which mine did ZIP ZILCH NADA for comfort. In fact, I rode through rain and it made my behind and inner thighs feel about 1000x’s worse than if I didn’t have it.

    • Everyone’s different, I guess: I’ve heard a few different guys praise the Coleman as a cheap, yet useful add-on that gave them some saddle relief.
