With summer around the corner, a motorcycle road trip looks like a better idea every day. While that sounds exciting, creating a list of what items are necessary to bring can be a lot. Luckily, we have compiled a list for you to go over before your next motorcycle road trip.
Before any ride, make sure to bring your helmet. Wearing a helmet while riding is critical to protecting your safety and preventing a serious injury on the road. If you plan to buy a helmet, choose a breathable and comfy one to keep it on while traveling. If you are not buying a new helmet, check it for any cracks and confirm that you can easily see through the visor. Replace the helmet if there are any cracks. Even if the crack seems only superficial, it can cause real damage to the helmet and jeopardize your safety.
Flashlights, batteries, spare keys, and multi-tool or pocket are useful for many situations while traveling. Similarly, you should bring water, filling snacks, and a first aid kit to keep yourself safe during your trip. Other small items that can help improve a road trip are duct tape, portable chargers, a backpack, and Tylenol or other painkillers.
TOOLS AND SPARE PARTS
Next, pack tools and spare parts for your bike. You do not need to pack everything, but you should bring the essentials to keep yourself from having to find them on a road trip with no friends or family nearby. The tool kit should be compact. A small bag or pouch with a wrench and socket set, allen wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, and cable ties cover the basic needs in an emergency. Spare parts like spark plugs, wires, light bulbs, and fuses are easy to carry and replace if ever needed while on the road.
CLOTHES AND HYGIENE ITEMS
Finally, pack spare clothes and hygiene items for the road trip. Before leaving, check the weather where you are headed and pack accordingly. If you are traveling far, it is best to pack for every type of weather to avoid riding with the wrong clothing on. Rain clothes, gloves, boots, and other waterproof clothing are critical to keeping the ride dry and fun. If you will be on the road a lot, pack plenty of socks and underwear to stay comfortable. People will not notice if you repeat outfits, but you will notice not changing your socks or underwear. For hygiene items, get the travel size or transfer your home items into smaller containers to keep things light.
