Talk me out of waxed cotton

Dang I hope so.... I had a waxed cotton Belstaff decades ago and recent oilskin jacket (not cheap!) and they'll both leave "skidmarks" on anything light colored. Have to take it off driving (light...

Side loaders take big bulky things better (like helmets). For a bunch of small stuff, as many have said, I just use a small duffle bag as a bag liner.

Motorcycle radar

I always wear my left sides significantly faster - for me it's a bunch of reasons:
