If you’re looking to get one last road trip before the weather cools down, make sure you are fully prepared. However, make sure you are fully prepared for your trip with these essential items.
A Fully Functioning Bike
Think about purchasing a new bike at CCM Rides for your trip. We have used Harleys for sale in Chicago if you want to road trip with a new bike! When figuring out your road trip path, plan, and time frame, you should have a reliable motorcycle to do it all.
A Map And GPS Unit
Believe it or not, it’s beneficial to have both of these. Using a satellite navigation system can help you figure out which way to go when you are in unknown territory. Mount your cellphone on your motorcycle to save money and allow your hands to stay on the handlebars. However, if your phone dies or breaks, it’s important to have a backup plan—a map. A waterproof and tear-resistant map will never fail you with its directions and is perfect to have in case of an emergency. It’s also a cool way to see an overview of your trip and pick out some good roads and sites to see.
You must get earplugs to help drown out the sustained high-speed travel noises inside your helmet. Avoid fatigue and pick up a pair of disposable or reusable earplugs to keep your ears from ringing.
Flat Repair Kit
If you are riding your motorcycle on bumpy and dirty terrain, it’s possible a tire can be punctured. If you get a flat, your repair kit will get you up and running fairly quickly without having to call in for extra help.
Rain gear—such as waterproof gloves and a jacket—is an amazing thing to have, even if you think you won’t need it. It doesn’t take up too much space and you’ll be glad you have it in case the weather takes a wet turn.
Avoid dead batteries and bring a few power banks to keep your phone alive with GPS directions. You may also want to book a hotel room or check out your next destination—all of which require a working phone.
