Motorcycle Touring & Travel -Everything You Need to Know

Motorcycle riding gives us an inherent sense of freedom. There are many people who like to arrange tour in a motorcycle rather than in trains or buses. I am also a person who loves to arrange motorcycle trips. There are a lot of benefits of riding a bike when compared to other vehicles.

Flexibility in Traffic and Easy Parking Facility

Even if a motorcycle gets in to a jam, it can wend its way forward without much difficulty. It’s for the same reason that traffic police in many cities have adopted this vehicle. Parking a motor bike is also very easy as even in the busiest place you can find a spot to park it.

Cheaper to Run and Maintain

Motorcycles comparably use much less petrol. Motorcycle riding is the best way to conserve oil. As its engine is more accessible it is easy to repair and maintain. Many repairs can be done by us as it is a small vehicle.

Moreover it is the best option for sight seeing and looking around new places. This is possible because it can be pulled over anytime at any place we wish because there is no chance for traffic blocks. It can be easily pulled onto the side walk of a narrow street.

Planing Motorcycle Tours :Tips for Planning a Motor Cycle Tour

  1. Arrange spare wheels.
  2. Get it serviced and maintained before the tour.
  3. Carry extra oil if it may be needed during the journey.
  4. Never forget to wear a helmet for your safety.
  5. Keep enough water on your tour for drinking or washing purposes.
  6. Include an emergency tool kit in your motor cycle.
  7. Carry emergency medical accessories (band-aid, creams, cotton etc).

Always be very careful while riding your bike, especially on highways.I always use cotton in my ears for long trips, so that heavy pressure of air doesn’t affect my ears. Drivers falling asleep at the wheel are one of the main causes of accidents. But it’s not likely to happen on a bike. The feel of the wind, the wet and the cold always keep the motorcyclist awake and lively. So there is no question of getting bored in a motor cycle tour. It also provides you a pleasant journey.
