Read articles about the reality of road tripping with your motorcycle
There’s a vast amount of information that you can use to your advantage. We all have different
ideas, fantasies about how will our goal manifest and how we will get there. Most often,
especially if our knowledge about the subject isn’t sufficient, it may be out of touch with the
actuality of the endeavors. Educating yourself about various aspects of your motorcycle road
trip will lower the number of surprises. Regardless if you have driven for years, updating your
knowledge will be as beneficial. I usually prefer motorcycle tours in North India during my holiday to India and always made sure I get enough information to take the trip and return without any issues.
Watch videos of the places you want to visit and contact them before starting your trip
To have a more precise understanding of your future surroundings, you can view the locations
of your interest on Google Maps, local cameras, vlogs on Youtube and through other means.
This point may seem like it isn’t necessary, but if you have specific places in mind as an
essence of your travel, it’s better to spend a minute for a call than experiencing a
disappointment later with your trip.
Find knowledge and advice
Get in touch with other drivers and motorcycle stores to get more information and ask specific
questions, get feedback from them about your expectations. Very skilled motorcyclists are
always improving themselves and might have enjoyed sharing their knowledge with many
people. Ask the most proficient person you know, and if you don’t personally know anybody
with the same passion as yours, you can try to ask the authors of websites, blogs, youtube
channels and join Facebook groups dedicated to motorcycling and road trips.
Collect information and summarize
Before your expected road trip summarize your driving habits, how often you would like to take
breaks, what is your goal to achieve or amount of places to visit. Keep guidebook with things
that you view as important to you regarding your new motorcycle road trip.
Raise your self-awareness
Write down your personal needs that will impact your road trip. Examples: do you feel better
alone or do you need a group of people around you to feel happy? How many frustrations and
inconveniences can you take before giving up? Are you resilient and self-sufficient? Make sure
you are undertaking this adventure for the right reasons and plan it accordingly to yourself. Are
you ready to be transformed, learn something new and meet people from various walks of life,
even if it isn’t your first road trip?
