Essentials For A Big Bike Road Trip

If you want to travel more in this New Year, then a fantastic way to do so is by taking a road trip. While you could do that in the back of a car, the best way to travel the road is on the back of a motorcycle. As long as you have high-quality BikeMaster brakes and tires, then you should be able to go from one corner of the country to the other with no problems. Here are some other things that you should pack before you head out.

Weather Resistant Clothes

Whether riding in warm weather or cold, you want to make sure that you wear the right clothes for the journey. Icon gloves are essential to keep your hands warm and to maintain an ideal grip the whole time. Similarly, an AlpineStar jacket will ensure that you stay protected in case of a collision, and will keep your insides toasty when traveling in colder temperatures.

Map and GPS

While most of us use our cell phones to tell us where we are and where we’re going, we can’t rely on service all of the time. So, be sure that you carry a physical map wherever you go so you’re not stranded when you lose signal.

Battery Charger

Another problem that happens with our phones is that they die easily. To prevent this from happening, be sure to bring a charger with you so that you can keep it running as you ride.

Travel Bag

Even if you’re gone for a couple of days, you will need to have extra storage space for clothes and other essentials. If you don’t already have a touring bag on your bike, then get one pronto.

Tool Kit

Things happen on the road that you can’t control. However, you don’t want to be stranded somewhere because of something that you could fix yourself. Therefore, bring a tool kit to make repairs on the fly so you can keep your trip running smoothly.

Overall, the best thing you can do is be prepared. Check your bike out first and ensure that everything, from the handles to the BikeMaster brakes, is in prime condition.
