Things to do before a Road Trip.
Everybody has once, twice or maybe a couple of times have thought of going on a vacation or on a tour leaving behind their day to day mundane tasks and just tuning it down a peg. Going through nature and just taking in what it provides. Going through a forest while the fresh air refreshes your mind and soul. Just visualizing the situation calms your mind.
Nowadays, a lot of people have started riding bikes and going on long rides with no destination particularly in mind either solo or with a squad. Among all those who are wanting to go on a road trip, there are people who are just starting out and don’t really know about the do’s and don’ts while going on a bike tour. This article will help the newcomers get them ready to set out on a tour they have dreamt of.
Pick a bike that you have comfortability with
No matter what bike you choose, you must feel comfortable while riding that said bike. If you feel slightly uncomfortable while riding it, don’t use it as that certain uncomfortability will rise up to be a problem in your long ride. If you feel comfortable after a certain modification, get it done before going on the trip as this will help you in the long run. A better grip, improved headlight, replacing the exhaust, do it all before going on a trip. You look good when you’re driving the bike good, so do all these necessary things before going on a road trip.
Service your Bike
This is one of the most important objectives before going on a trip. The last thing you want is your bike to stop working mid ride. That will be a bummer for not only you but the whole team if you are riding alongside them. Give your chosen bike for servicing before going on a trip, you will be doing a great deed for your squad as well as your fun of your ride. At the end of the day, you are going on a trip to reduce your stress, not increase your stress when your bike breaks down.
Saddlebags or hard bags are available in abundance in the market, pick the one you like the most and which suits the bike. While going on a trip, it is very important to pack light so that it won’t become a hindrance throughout the trip. If you want to go one step above from packing light, try packing most disposable products so that you don’t have to tag them around wherever you. Since it’s disposable, you can lose some of that additional weight. You don’t want to lose half of your energy carrying heavy items while on a trip, now do you?
You gotta dress right while going on a road trip, while keeping the weather condition of your destination in mind. If the place you are trying to go has a rainy and cold environment, you wouldn’t particularly want to ride with a T-shirt. If safety is your first priority, then we recommend you ride while wearing different riding gears with boots and what not so that you are protected when some atrocities do happen during the trip.
Tools and Essentials

Check the Weather

If it starts raining mid trip and no rain coats to protect you from the rain, the whole trip might be ruined as someone might be sick. So before going on a trip always check the weather and carry equipment according to the weather.
There were the pointers and important things to keep in mind and perform before going on a long road trip. No one wants their trip which they thought would be relaxing to be filled with stress and problems.
