As a motorcyclist, I love exploring the places near my city. Camping while touring on my motorcycle is the best way to explore new places and make some beautiful memories! I like travelling in a group and also enjoy my solo trips. Today, I am going to talk about three very important aspects that will make your motorcycle camping a success!
Carry a reliable tent
Since you’re not too sure about your next stop and the type of place it will be, you should always carry reliable shelter. The shelter tent you buy should be light in weight so that you can carry it with ease. At the same time, it should be sturdy enough to withstand wind and harsh weather. Try buying a tent with a zipper instead of a less reliable opening. This will help you stay protected while you sleep at night. If you are travelling to a place that has unexpected rain showers, try choosing a safe tent spot that has ample drainage. While you’re in the tent, remember to carry food and water inside, so that you don’t have to step out in the middle of the night for a midnight snack. (Unless however, it's an area with dangerous wildlife. In which case, follow the food storage instructions outlined in park literature.) Another important thing to keep in mind is to carry your motorcycle key into the tent with you. It seems obvious, but you'd be surprised at what you can forget when you take that helmet off and get into relaxed mode. Don't get stranded.
Be smart about clothing
Carry just the right amount of clothes that you'll actually need. If you go overboard by carrying extra clothes, you're going to regret it. Use weather smart gear that keeps you warm and wicks moisture. Think layers. Another important thing to consider is carrying hats, scarves, gloves, and coats to protect you from the sun and harsh wind.
Be food wise
Make sure to carry extra food, especially if you are travelling to a place where you won’t find many stores or if you have specific dietary needs. Different regions stock different stuff. Carry a lot of water. Staying hydrated is clutch. Make sure to clean up and not create a mess along your route. After all, it's our duty to protect the environment we love to bike across.
Safe travels, road warriors.
