Motorcycle Adventure Packing: you’ve planned your trip – now you’ve just got to figure out what to bring with! “Will I need this, will I regret not bringing this, how will all my stuff fit in this one bag…”, where to begin? Obviously on Ride Expeditions tours we will be bringing all the necessary tools so you won’t need to worry about that (unless you really want to bring a few basics of your own). We will also have the support truck for your luggage bags so the only thing you’ll need on your back are the essentials. We have compiled a list of items you will need, might want and some motorcycle adventure packing tips to help you. Enjoy packing!!
Travel light: No one wants to be under prepared but you don’t want to be lugging around a great big suitcase either. We will carry your main suitcase in the support truck but please keep your luggage to a reasonable size. If 10 riders have packed everything but the kitchen sink then it will be a game of Tetris every morning trying to fit all the bags in. There will be opportunities to get your laundry done along the way (roughly every 3 days) so you don’t need to pack clean clothes for every single day.
Test your backpack: As you will be wearing your backpack for the majority of the tour you will want one that’s not too heavy… not only will you have some personal belongings but about 3kg of water on your back as well.
Boring things: Don’t forget to notify your bank that you will be travelling abroad so they don’t block your card. A load of extra hassle that can easily be avoided. Also print off a copy of your insurance documents to keep on your person whilst riding.
