Motorbike trips can be exciting, relaxing, and even interesting. These trips are typically taken in natural and untouched places. These events will only fit your expectations if you plan them properly. A poorly planned trip will be hectic and terrible, regardless of how good the trail is. Here are some tips to help you organise your motorbike trip:
- Know Your Limits
Everyone has their limits. Yes, this includes those professional riders you see on the track. It is important to stretch yourself to your limit, but you should never go beyond that level. For example, if the longest you’ve ever gone was 500 miles, you shouldn’t aim at going for a 600miles ride. That will only make your ride a hassle and will take the fun out of the whole activity.
- Make Your Bike Comfortable
Riding an uncomfortable bike can make your experience extremely unpleasant. This is especially if you intend to go for a very long distance. If you are renting a bike, first take it for a test from your local dealer on the same make and model and see how your bottom feels. If it hurts, leave the bike alone. Also, if the handlebars are not positioned to match your body type, you should abandon it. A personal bike can be easily modified to match your preference and don’t wear underwear or jeans with seams in these will cut into your legs and bottom.
- Stay Hydrated
Motorcycling consumes a lot of energy, and that can lead to dehydration. If you have ever engaged in any form of exercise, you know that it is impossible to give your all when you are dehydrated. To make sure you are hydrated enough through the trip, you should drink at least 300 ml of fluid before the ride. Ideally, the water should be taken an hour while on the trip, and keep off the Red Bull and alcohol.
- Prepare for Unexpected Weather
You should carry out research on the place you intend to ride through as that will help you understand the weather patterns. Still, the weather has a small chance of changing unexpectedly. For this reason, you should carry protective waterproof gear, like spare gloves etc.
