How to prepare your first motorbike road trip

8th February 2022
"How should you plan your first motorbike first road trip?"

How should you plan your first route? When we first start in the motorcycle world and want to travel with our beloved motorcycle, this is one of the first questions we have.

To make the most of our experience, here are some tips on how to stay safe while still having a thrilling ride:

Choose a comfortable bike

Whatever type of bike you choose, you must always feel at ease with it.

If you find a bike that needs to be modified to make it more comfortable for you to ride, make the necessary changes right away.

Changes that riders frequently make include getting a different handlebar, a more comfortable seat, guards, better headlights if they plan on doing a lot of evening riding, a new exhaust, and so on.

Remember that it's not just about looking good on your bike, but also about riding it well.

Dress appropriately

Dressing appropriately for road trips, especially on a motorcycle, is essential.

Always wear riding pants, a comfortable t-shirt, ankle boots, a full-face helmet, and bring your favorite jacket.

If you anticipate a bumpy ride on two wheels, choose elbow and knee guards for added protection.

Wear fitted clothing because baggy gear can be uncomfortable for long-distance riding.

Plan your route

Once you've decided on a destination, you should plan your route to take advantage of the great open roads and spectacular views.

Schedule fuel stops so you know when to stop for a stretch and a bite to eat.

Even if you've planned your route, you should always carry a physical map with you in case of any accidents or road closures that require you to react.

Don’t overpack, pack light

Wide ranges of luggage carriers for motorcycles are available.

The best ones are saddlebags, which can be easily attached to the bike's sides or back seat.

Other great bag ideas include tail-bags and tank bags, which include magnets to immediately hug your tank.

In addition to selecting the appropriate bag, you must also carefully select your luggage. When going on a motorcycle road trip, always pack light.

Take breaks

You may require more rest than usual while on a biking road trip.

Sitting on a bike for long periods without a break can result in saddle sores.

Recognize when your body and bike are telling you to take a break.

Avoid going overboard with it, as it will only lengthen your journey and make it more frustrating in the long run.

Use the break to rest and to check if you need to refuel your tank or if your bike is in good working order.

Tips to store your bike properly for the winter

4th January 2022
"Properly preparing your motorcycle for winter storage can save time, headaches, and money when nice weather rolls around"

Winter sucks for motorcyclists. And properly preparing your motorcycle for winter storage can save time, headaches, and money when nice weather rolls around.

However, here are essential tips to prepare your bike for winter storage:

Clean the bike

You're going to want to clean your motorcycle of road grit, grime, and bugs because they'll eat away at any clear coat, anodized, aluminum, polished metal finish, and stainless steel.

Clean your bike thoroughly and dry the entire frame and all the components with a rag as crusted mud on the tubes or deep in the components is the last thing the bike deserves.

Scrub, wash, dry, and wax

Start with the dirtiest part of your bike. That means the chain and brakes.

You'll want a grunge brush and an O-ring safe degreaser for your chain.

For your brakes, you'll want a disc cleaner. Inspect everything while cleaning so that you don't discover any surprises during the spring.

Lastly, wax and treat your paint and treat any chrome as well. This will add an extra layer of protection for your bike while it's in storage.

Store in a well-ventilated area

The best place to store your bike is somewhere well-ventilated indoors.

This way, air will circulate, and moisture won't collect under your cover.

Just make sure there's no fertilizer or chemicals around your bike since they can end up corroding your motorcycle.

Store on Center stand or Stands

If your bike has a center stand, use it during storage. If you can get both wheels off the ground with motorcycle stands, this would provide the most optimal situation for storage.

These techniques keep the tires off the ground, preventing the need to rotate to reduce flat spots though still inflate to the proper pressure to retain shape.

It also keeps the suspension unloaded, which helps suspension longevity.

Use a correct cover

You obliviously want proper protection for your bike. A cover that is poorly made may trap water, slip off, or chafe against the paint.

The result is that your bike will come out looking worse than when it went in. While often used, a plastic cover is not the best choice for a motorcycle cover.

It will trap moisture, cause corrosion, and mold. You can get an affordable, breathable cover instead.

Motorcycle Life Hacks Every Biker Should Know

4th February 2022
"If you're a biker, you'll want to concentrate on the road and keeping your baby safe with as few hassles as possible."

If you're a biker, you'll want to concentrate on the road and keeping your baby safe with as few hassles as possible.

Make use of these motorcycle life hacks to make your life as simple as possible.

Keeping track of screws during maintenance

Your bike is held together by a large number of screws. Attach your screws to a labeled piece of cardboard, corkboard, or another surface to keep them from becoming jumbled up during maintenance.

Now you'll be able to quickly locate your screws and get back on the road.

Newspaper inside boots

Getting your boots wet on the road while on a lengthy journey? Don't be concerned. You may not have the luxury of air-drying them for several days or utilizing foot inserts to absorb odors, but you do have the next best thing: newspapers.

Simply grab what's black and white and go through it all, then roll up some papers and stuff them into your boots. Repeat this technique throughout the day to improve your job (and even at night). Your boots should be dry and ready to travel by morning.

In addition, when you are caught in a sudden blast of cold, newspaper serves as a trustworthy type of insulation.

Wire helmet lock

This motorcycle hack is intended to divert your attention away from your helmet.

Purchase some galvanized cable from your favorite online retailer or your local hardware store. Make sure it's long enough to loop through the chin bar of your helmet with a few inches to spare.

Make loops at both ends of your cable with crush sleeves as well.

Loop the wire through your helmet and attach it to the helmet lock on your bike after you've parked your bike. After that, loop it around your seat latch.

Duct tape visor

If you're a regular rider, you've undoubtedly seen this trick before.

Attach an inch-wide strip of black tape to the top of your helmet's visor to block off the sun's rays in the early evening, especially if you're heading west. You'll be grateful for a break from the sun's rays, especially if all it takes is a simple head tilt.

You can simply store the tape on the back of your helmet at night or when the sun is high in the sky for quick access during future rides.
