Top 10 Biker Products For A Motorcycle Trip

Aaron Cortez/BikeBandit
If you’re itching to see the open road, there’s no better way to do it than on your motorcycle. Feeling the wind and the highway beneath your Dunlop tires is like nothing else, which is why you want to do it at often as possible. So, with that in mind, here are ten things you should have for your journey:

1. Quality Gloves
After riding for hours, your hands will start to cramp up, and it will be harder to maintain a stable grip. To help prevent you from losing control, invest in a pair of high-quality gloves. They will not only assist in controlling the bike, but also keep your hands warm in the cold.

2. Better Mirrors
If you want to ensure that you won’t get into any problems on the road, then one of the best Yamaha OEM parts you can buy are bigger and better mirrors. Switching lanes on the highway can be dangerous if you don’t see everything around you.

3. Seat Pad
Whether you’re investing in Kawasaki accessories or another brand, one thing that you’ll want is a thicker and softer seat pad. After a full day on the road, your butt will thank you.

4. Phone Charger
Since most of us use our smartphones for everything, it’s imperative that we keep them fully charged at all times. Get an adapter so that you can keep your phone at 100 percent.

5. Touring Bag
Even if you’re planning on a day trip, having a bag for extra gear is necessary for your quality of life. Extra clothes, food, and other supplies won’t store in your pockets, so you need a place to put them.

6. Quality Jacket
Although you should have a motorcycle jacket already, we highly recommend getting a new one for your long distance trip, as most apparel is not designed for multi-day excursions.

7. Map
Even if you use your smartphone as a GPS, the signal is not always reliable. Don’t get stuck on the side of the road because you’re lost. Bring a physical map just in case.

8. Tool Kit
As any motorcycle enthusiast will tell you, the best maintenance is preventative. Ideally, you will check everything from your Dunlop tires to your gas tank before you go, but just in case, bring a tool kit.

9. First Aid Kit
If you plan on taking a long-distance trip, all kinds of things can happen out on the road. Having a first aid kit can mean a world of difference, especially if you’re going off road or into uncharted territory.

10. Bluetooth Headset
If you plan on riding with other people, having this handy device means that you can communicate without having to pull over. Enough said.

Whether you’re going to the beach or heading off into the great unknown, be sure that you’re as prepared as possible for anything and everything that comes your way.
