Planning a great motorcycle road trip is as much about having fun and keeping safe as it is about staying sane. The same rules don’t apply when you would plan for a car-based long haul drive.

No rider likes to think that riding a motorcycle has limits, but the reality of the situation is that they do. And these limitations are never more prevalent than when it comes time to plan for a road trip or a long haul drive.

Planning a Great Long-Haul Motorcycle Ride

Mooresville Synthetic Oil knows the importance of not only enjoying your road trip but just how important the planning stage is to make it a successful one, that they have prepared the following tips to help get you started.

Enjoy the Trip with Friends

Road trips just aren't as enjoyable when it’s just you. After all, you never see characters in a movie doing it by themselves. Instead, it’s always a group of people enjoying the adventure. The same goes for when you are planning a motorcycle ride. Just because it’s only you on the bike doesn’t mean that it isn’t a social affair. Look for some friends or family members with bikes who are interested in making the trip with you. Each time that you stop to take breaks, make the most of them with small exploratory adventures or long lunch stops where you can all get together and talk about the sights you’ve just seen and the roads you’ve ridden, along with any interesting points coming up which will be of interest.

On the Subject of Long Breaks

It’s important to remember that you can’t ride as long as you can drive. As an example, when you are driving and feel thirsty or just want to eat a quick snack, it’s simply a matter of reaching over, opening a can of soda or cookies, and everything is fine. On a bike, however, such a simple act requires you to safely pull over, switch off your bike, take off some gear, and then refresh. For this reason, when you are planning your route and your final destination, keep in mind that you will need to take more breaks. Not just to eat and drink, but to also stretch your legs and take your helmet off to refresh for the next leg of the journey. This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to reach a destination far away, it just means that you should plan for it. Click here to buy 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil which can work to keep your engine in good health over long rides. Additionally, products like these used in conjunction with a synthetic oil change can also help minimize engine damage and extend the lifespan of your motor.

Avoid Boredom

Nobody said that riding alone is an exciting affair. In fact, the very opposite was mentioned in the first point.  However, for the times you will be riding with just you on the bike, music is a great way to prevent boredom and the safety issues which come with it, along with making it a more enjoyable ride. In the car, you would usually listen to the radio, changing stations each time that the music becomes uninteresting. However, it isn’t as easy on a bike. To combat this, use your favorite music streaming app to create some playlists for the journey. As examples, create one with your favorite music when you want to sing (nobody can hear you in the helmet), create a playlist for when you think you might need loud and fast music to keep you awake, and then one for when you expect to be riding through serene surroundings. When these are ready, download them into your phone on your home wifi so that you can enjoy them even when you don’t have any cell signal. Once this is done, head to your local electronics store and pick up a high-quality Bluetooth headset which can connect with your phone’s assistant. These can allow you the ability to make and receive calls along with dictate and listen to messages all without the need to use your hands.
