Whether you’re headed to the nearest state park or traversing multiple state lines, a little planning will help you make the most of your summer motorcycle getaway.
Not sure where to start? Our tips will help you figure out where to go, what to pack (spoiler alert: not too much) and how to get there safely.
Where to Go
No, you don’t need an exact plan. But you do want to have a general idea of where you’re headed; you can always switch it up on the fly.
What to Pack (and What Not to Pack)
Packing smart – not just light – is one of the best ways to prepare for an extended motorcycle ride. We’ve all been on a trip with someone who brought four bags for three days. Don’t be that person.
How to Get There Safely
Regular motorcycle maintenance is vital, but so is inspecting your bike prior to hitting the road.
Finally, know your limits when it comes to how much ground you can cover in one day. The more well rested you are, the safer you’ll be — and the more fun you’ll have. See you on the road!
