Plan a two-week motorcycle touring with a bunch of friends or with your biker
girl and accomplish it, which will be the best decision and memory that you will
have in your life. You can take the smallest roads through the smallest
picturesque towns, camp most of the way and see the country from a totally
different and amazed angle. Of course, the best part of this motorcycle trip is
not the places that you ride to, but the freedom and the feelings on the road.
How to get a bike
Of course, bikers will be safest and the most comfortable on their own
motorcycles. However, it is possible that their bikes may be not the right type
for the motorcycle traveling. Thus, hiring one from a bike rental company is the
best choice. If you are planning to ride on big open highways, a cruiser may be
the first choice, and a nimbler sportbike is suitable for twisty roads. When you
are renting motorcycles, remember to inform the company your skills level and
where you are planning to go. A motorcycle that you can’t handle or one that is
wrong for the terrain will imperfect your motorcycle trip.
What to pack
The principle is to keep your luggage to the minimum. A bike can load as many as
stuff as you can imagine, but you will have to unpack and repack all of it every
day. So, just make sure that you have bring all the necessary stuff that you
need on the road, including good maps, warm clothes, water, rain gear,
sunglasses, sunscreen, earplugs, phone and charger, extra socks, flashlight,
aspirin, basic camping gear if you plan to camp. Of course, there are other
things you can bring depending on your own needs.
Where to stay for the night
Actually, camping has been more and more popular among bikers who are on
motorcycle touring, which allows great flexibility in terms of the route,
schedule and budget. There are cheap and free camping sites along the riding
route, and you can also stop anywhere you find s pretty spot, then set up your
tent and get up early for the next riding day at sunrise. If you are dating a
biker girl, camping can be the most romantic dating for you. Besides, motels are
also available at most of the well-known motorcycle routes.
Tips for making it a great trip
Keeping a positive attitude is the key. When things go wrong, even the most
optimistic biker will get upset. So, try your best to keep yourself warm, dry,
well-rested, fueled up, not lost and not ride beyond your skill level. Establish
plans with every bike friend in your group or with your biker girlfriend about
things that you should do when you get separated. Mark the meeting places on the
map. Try not to ride too fast in case some slower riders will be easily left
behind. If you are riding with your biker woman, just ride with her all the
time, making it a date with a biker, not a race.
