How To Make the Best of Your Motorcycle Road Trip This Summer

Before you embark on your next road trip, you want to see what helmets and motorcycle tires for sale are available, so you can stay safe. However, it is also important for you to have fun this summer. These tips can help you enjoy yourself on the open road.

Bring Food and Water

There may be long stretches of road between gas stations and convenience stores. Always pack plenty of water, so you can remain hydrated throughout the day. It is also a good idea to pack trail mix or energy bars to nourish yourself when you go hours between actual meals.

Use Earplugs

Riding a motorcycle is extremely loud. You do not want a loss of hearing as a souvenir of your road trip. Wearing ear plugs, even part of the time, will do wonders for your hearing.

Rest Often

Some motorcyclists do not see the problem with going 150 or 200 miles without stopping. You should always stop more often than you think you should to relax and stretch your legs. In the event you feel tired, you should absolutely pull off to the side of the road so that you do not endanger yourself and others.

Schedule Time To Shower

If you plan on riding your bike for 10 or more hours, then you can expect to get fairly gross at the end of your journey. You will be extremely sweaty, and you will probably have grime and dirt all over your body. It is a good idea to stop by the hotel and shower first before heading out to dinner. You will feel amazing during that first shower after a long ride.

A little bit of planning goes a long way during your road trip. You can prepare even more by acquiring excellent gear such as an armored motorcycle jacket

  1. Do you ride or drive? I have had my own bike now since 2009 and occasionally ride as passenger for big events. Last summer we road across country (north to south) , I have a 4 part series about that trip on my blog. You bring up an interesting point about showering but let me tell you stopping to shower isn’t at the top of the list. Staying hydrated, yes!
