@JPC IRL it's a bagel basket absconded from a cafe I used to frequent. Before that, I tried a baker's rack but it looked like a hockey goalie's mask. The bagel basket is the perfect diameter and secured with wire-ties.

It's part of my Roadster > GS ensemble. I like to pretend I'm on an ADV bike.

Yes, a bit of GS in every RR while losing a tooth filling or two.

On the rugged Denali Hwy, AK USA a few years back, two GS bikes flew pass me so I decided that wasn't right and picked up my pace. After hitting two potholes and bottoming out my forks each time,I decided to let them win the race as fear of blown fork seals rendering me incapacitated in the wilderness wasn't going to be a victory.

The video doesn't do that justice on how rough that track was. On my trusty GPS, it didn't look all that bad. The further I tried to push on the worst the track got. I was sure relieved at the end of that section of gravel. Not something I would want to do again.
