I need 3 water bottles on my bike. I'm dumbfounded that Serial 1 didn't provide attachment points for traditional aftermarket waterbottle cages. Kinda pisses me off. What is everyone using for waterbottle holders? Anything clever ? I want to keep the bottles off the handlebars.

I have a step-thru and bought these water bottle mounts. Since I don’t have a top tube works great. Not sure how it’d work on the conventional frames but they do have side loading water bottle holders. You could also get a frame bag and then insert a hydration bladder.

I just bought a rear rack bag that holds a water bottle. I dont like to mount a lot of devices on the bike, and 1 bottle is not enough for me when it gets hot, I have a small hydration back pack from my mountain biking days that has a water bladder and drinking tube that you can drink while riding that I will be using. I agree Serial 1 should have provided at least 1 mount for a bottle cage.

I guess I am a lucky guy,the stores,bars and restaurants are always on my path. I can quench my thirst and rest my butt as frequently as needed. If I am in the boonies,I can hydrate from many fresh water springs along my way,the rite time of the year you get fresh wild fruit too,lol

I am surprised the HD hasn’t created line of accessories for their Serial 1, just like their conventional bikes. From what I understand that is or was one of their profit centers.

Trying to picture a collection of Serial 1 t-shirts from various HD dealers. Maybe a Serial 1 night at the local HD. Sorry getting off topic

The local dealer here didn’t have anything but a tiny Serial 1 sticker that ended peeling off my bumper in just a couple months. They of course have tons of stuff for motorcycle riders. They planning department just didn‘t think of the accessory/apparel merchandising side of things When they put Serial 1 together. I wanted a jersey like in the enjoy the ride video.

There should be plenty of them. It’s not difficult nor expensive to put those studs while forging frames. Now are the days of fusion of bike design for commuting, bike packing and touring. Many bikes come with that.
