Bring rain gear with you too and keep it safe in your motorcycle tank bag until you need it.

You are alone to deal with your bike’s problem and at that time you will find that toolkit and parts like spark club, oil filter, brake cable, tire repair kit, chain oil, and clutch lever very handy and useful.

Medical supplies:

If you are one of those persons who consider takinga water break a time-consuming act, it’s better to bring your water bottle with you which can help you quench your thrust even while continuing your journey.

Camping equipment:

If you wish to add more adventure to your venturesome road trip experience, bring a tent, sleeping bag, and other camping stuff with you. Furthermore, if you are planning to camp somewhere, you must have some snacks to keep your belly fill when staying in camp.

Important documents:

Besides all the aforementioned stuff, keeping your important documents like motorcycle registration card, your passport, driving license, maps, and bike insurance card in your handbag is of dire importance.

How to pack your stuff ingeniously?

Roll, don't fold your clothes:

Tightly rolled clothes will not only save packing space but your clothes will remain wrinkle-free when you reach your destination.  Once are done with rolling, place pants and tops in your suitcase prior to shoes and accessories; then, fit in other oddly shaped items like a hairdryer.

Place heavy items at the base:

Stuff weightier things like shoes, books, toolkit, and spare parts closest to where the bag will be mounted on the bike. This placement will not only help your bag stay stable but stops other items from getting smushed too.

Organize your liquids bags

It’s better to stash liquids in a separate bag so that they may not make your other luggage dirty in the event of leakage or spillage. Moreover, bring breakable stuff in your carry bag or in between the layers of your clothes.
