Bike trips may not be for everyone, but for motorcycle enthusiasts, long bike trips are adventures they live for. They may be the source of excitement & happiness, but these adventures can turn into disasters if you don't have the right things (accessories & gadgets) with you while traveling long distances on your bike.
Here are a few essentials and two-wheeler accessories you cannot miss to carry with you on bike trips.
1. Essential Documents
Bike documents are must-haves for any road trip or even while driving generally. These include a driver's license, registration certificate, bike insurance, PUCC, etc. Moreover, you need to keep all essential documents safely in one place. Nowadays, there is a government-approved Digi-locker where you save digital copies of your documents, such as your license, PUC, bike insurance, etc.
2. Spare helmet
Carry spare helmets with you. In case your helmet gets damaged during the trip, it is always a good option to have a spare one.
3. Bluetooth headset
Taking your phone out while riding a bike is never a good idea. Bluetooth headsets allow you to pick up important calls without getting your hands off the bike handle. Remember to wear Bluetooth earphones in one ear to be able to hear external voices. Also, Bluetooth is a great means to help you navigate the GPS.
4. Power bank
You never know when your phone batteries will run out on the road. So, a power bank is essential to carry with you on your trip. Charge it whenever you can or need it.
5. First aid kit
Safety must always be your first concern while on the road. Therefore, a first aid kit that carries all the required items, like bandages, ointments, tablets for fever, etc., should always be with you on all bike trips.
6. Luggage straps
You must invest in a good quality luggage strap. These straps will secure your luggage safely and spare you the constant worry of handling your luggage.
7. Phone holder
Invest in a good quality phone holder. It will help you easily navigate or receive calls easily.
8. Road maps
Although most of us are used to navigating our GPS systems, carrying a physical road map is always a good idea. It will come in handy if you face connectivity or battery issues with your phone.
9. Wind goggles and Bike mask
Whether riding through cold or windy terrain, these accessories will greatly benefit you. Wind goggles will protect you from extreme winds or dust while riding. Masks will also protect you from pollution and dust.
10. Repair kit
You should always carry two-wheeler accessories that will come in handy in case the bike breaks down or runs out of fuel. These include a bike and tire repair kit, extra fuel, etc.
