Summer is the perfect time to take your bike out for your first road trip together. After all, it’s just like a car, right? This article has some smart tips to help you plan your motorbike road trip. New riders can be forgiven for expecting that anything that they can do in a car they can do on a bike. It’s the topic of a long-standing feud between bikers and drivers. And while there are pros and cons to both sides of the argument, one thing is for sure, a motorbike rider needs to consider different traffic aspects than a driver.

Plan an Enjoyable Motorcycle Road Trip

This message isn’t just for the busy city streets, but also when it comes to long-haul highway riding. With years of experience providing riders with the right lubricants for their engine, Ace Hi Oil has some basic tips to help you plan a safer and more enjoyable bike road trip.

Don't Let the Map Fool You

When you’re looking at the simple blue line on the map on your screen it’s easy to think that it’s a short distance. Even with the rest of the information around it telling you the actual miles you will need to ride. After all, you are used to seeing that sort of drive and expecting a comfortable chair with friends around you as you all chat and listen to music. Maybe you’re all sipping on your sodas while lip syncing the words to your favorite song. However, when it comes to your bike, things are very different. Different in the way that you don’t have any of those comforts. You just have yourself on the bike. With this in mind, it’s important that, when planning your journey, you look for more places to stop and rest than you usually would with a car. Take a look at your route for scenic points where you can change your position, stretch your legs, and change your field of vision while enjoying the outdoors. Click here to buy AMSOIL’s 20W-50 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil. Products from this range have been purpose designed to keep your engine clean and healthy for longer. Visit the online store or speak with an expert at Ace Hi Oil by calling (888) 459-9958.

Don't Get Distracted!

A distracted driver is a driver that can cause all sorts of problems on the road. And not just problems for themselves; problems for everybody else sharing the road. To keep your brain alert and your hands where they should be, look through your local tech store’s range of Bluetooth headsets and earpieces. However, when you are looking, shy away from the basic cheap options that you will likely see. While you don’t have to buy the most expensive option that you can find, look for one that:
  • Integrates with your phone’s digital assistant
  • Allows you to make and take calls using your voice
  • Reads incoming text messages and emails to you
  • Allows you compose a new message using your voice
  • Can provide you with turn by turn navigation
  • Works with any other special feature or apps that you have and use on your phone.

Don't Live Like a Troll

Do you know where Trolls live? Under a bridge. Do you also know where motorcyclists all huddle together when they get stuck in a storm or heavy rain? You guessed it! Under a bridge. While you can’t always predict the weather to the minute, you can get a pretty good idea of what’s ahead with a little bit of online research. Check out your route online and see what type of weather you can expect to encounter. If you can see that there is a storm coming while you will be riding, look for a nice town or a comfortable and safe spot where you can plan to be at the expected time. This way, instead of hiding under a bridge you can enjoy a cup of coffee while you watch the storm pass you by.
