The earth is gorgeous and touring it on a bike makes it feel even more beautiful due to the fun associated with bike riding. Motorcycle tours are growing in popularity nowadays due to their fun-filled experience, and there are just so many routes you can explore to that effect.
The kinds of motorcycle tours present today are guided or unguided. The guided tours are mostly organized by travel and tours companies, while unguided tours can be random adventures by a group of people who could be your friends or strangers and you decide to join. Guided bike adventures usually assign a person a rider or a bike if they are interested in riding themselves. Unguided tours mostly require you to have your own bike or you can still hire one for the adventure.
When preparing for the bike tour, you must consider packing suitably to make the trip enjoyable. One of the most important things to pack for your ride is appropriate gear. Some of the things that you must include in your checklist are; a helmet, waterproof clothing and boots, gloves, sunscreen, first aid kit, warm clothes, toiletries, cell phone, cash, waterproof flashlight, tire repair kit, licenses, medical insurance cards, identification documents, sense of adventure, chargers, hard bags, and so on.
You must be prepared for all kinds of weather and for anything before setting out on your trip. Make sure that the items you carry are not too bulky to overload your bike and compromise on your safety or slow you down. While on a guided trip, there is usually a van that follows the path of your bike and carries luggage to relieve your burden. Regardless of this kind of gesture, make sure that you pack as lightly as possible.
As you pack your things, keep them in a polythene bags to keep them protected from water in case it rains while you are on the road. You can separate your dirty clothing and clean clothing in tiny bags to prevent a bad smell being transferred on the clean clothes. If you plan to do laundry while o your trip, you can choose to carry some detergent and save costs on Laundromat or laundry expenses at the hotel.
Choose more money over more luggage since many of the items you will need can be easily acquired along the way. When you buy souvenirs, send them to your home address rather than carry them along making your bags bulky and less portable. Stay in hotels that are on the edge of town to avoid the active hours traffic that can be hectic to deal with.
