The above fits on even my KLX 250s fairly easily. Luckily, my BF carries our tent and mini stove and most of the water because his bike is much bigger.
The best thing I did was getting Lasik, because a few years ago contacts and saline would have been on this list.
As far as hairstyle, I'm a big fan of a single braid or two pigtail braids.
I have a story about that--- when I got my new jacket (Ventura by Rev'It), there is a detachable wind collar that velcros off. When it is off, it leaves a toothy strip of velcro across the shoulder blades. My braid kept getting caught in the velcro -OUCH- and it yanked if I turned my head sharply. DOUBLE OUCH.
I wrote to Rev'It about it, and they promptly mailed me a strip of velcro sized to go over that toothy strip. The coolest part is that the fuzzy strip also has reflective backing, so now I have a reflective strip across my shoulders and no more OUCH. I'm curious if they changed that in the next round of production (would have been easy-- just reversing which part of the velcro goes on each piece so that the fuzzy side remains when the wind collar comes off).
I really love Rev'It. They rock!! Before and after below.
