Planning a Lengthy Motorcycle Trip? A Few Things to Consider

Barb from Portland Oregon wants to know about planing a trip on a motorcycle?

While no car can replicate the feeling of freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle, riders who have never taken long trips need to make sure they’re prepared for the process. Small mistakes can lead to misery on the road, and failing to prepare properly can quickly derail a trip. Here are a few things to consider before embarking on a long journey on your bike.

Is Your Bike Properly Equipped?

If most of your riding is done in the city or suburbs, you might not be prepared for a long ride. While riding below highway speeds, problems with the windshield might not be clear until you reach 70 miles per hour. In addition, you’ll want to check out your seat, as the ride can quickly become unpleasant if it’s not comfortable enough. Make sure your posture is right, as tweaking your back while on the road can force you off the road and end the journey prematurely.

Do You Have the Right Gear?

It’s rare for the weather to stay the same during long motorcycle rides, and you’ll want to ensure you’re prepared for whatever it brings. If you’re heading into warm weather, make sure you have the right clothing to stay cool, and bring an extra jacket if you’re heading into cooler temperatures. Make sure you have a way to check the upcoming weather conditions, and make sure to regularly check for rain, which can come up quickly in some parts of the country.

Maintenance Matters

Just like any vehicle, motorcycles need regular maintenance, and finding out something is wrong with your bike while on the road can end your ride quickly. Unfortunately, some problems can be exacerbated by lengthy periods of high-speed travel. Unless you’re an expert in motorcycle maintenance, have your bike inspected by experts at Orange County Choppers to make sure you’re ready. You also might want to bring along a maintenance book to help you look for problems while traveling.

Plan B

Expect the unexpected before you hit the road, as travel problems are more difficult to handle when you’re riding a bike as opposed to traveling by car. What happens if highway traffic slows down and you can’t make your destination when planned? Do you have a way to find a hotel for the night? If you run into mechanical issues en route, do you have a way to pay for repairs? Envision your journey, and make sure you aren’t caught unprepared.

Proper Mindset

When preparing for your first trip, it’s important to make sure you don’t push yourself too hard, as exhaustion and frustration can be dangerous while you’re riding a motorcycle. Make sure you schedule breaks to give your body and mind time to refresh. Since you’re saving on gas money, go ahead and plan fun stops on the way if your ride covers several days.

Nothing can beat traveling by motorcycle, but it’s important to prepare. Taking time to ensure you’re ready can make the journey safe, productive and, most of all, fun.
