    Transporting bottles of wine during warm weather on a r 1200 RT

    What is the best way to transport bottles of wine while riding on the bike... I have a collapsible cooler... Ice mule... It's the small one..

    Iíve had no problem with left side case or top case, would avoid the right because of exhaust

    Iíve been know to haul 40 oz bottles of rum to rallies and 6 packs of beer. If you want to carry your wine safely and change containers have a look at the Corcickle insulated bottles. We usually carry Manhattans in ours.

    I use Aerostich Tank Panniers, Competition-size, but they may not fit on your RT.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Another good insulated bottle is this Thermos brand bottle.

    They do a great job of keeping our water cold on the bikes and we have never had one leak.

    I'll take "Things you never hear a Harley rider say" for $1000 Alex.


    I've had the same issues transporting my Grey Poupon, but never really had the courage to ask a group of motorcycle riders that question.

    Debbie carries the little 4 packs.
    Most of the time the bottles are plastic.

    You could always drink the wine before you left.

    U Betcha!!!

    I'd suggest a simple ice pack near your Vin Rouge; Do Not Ever over chill your Red vin!!!

    Last but not least, Do Not lose your corkscrew!
