  • Travelling on a bike is the most conventional way
    to enjoy during the trip. Beautiful landscapes on
    both the sides, the freedom of stopping whenever
    you want, ability to navigate through traffic
    better, that amazing feeling of the cool breeze
    hitting against your face, Oh there are lots of
    things to describe the beauty of riding a bike.

  • But riding long distance is not easy. There are
    various parameters which should be taken care of
    (There are many check lists to be met before you
    set off).
  • It can even be life threatening if proper safety
    measures are not taken. No kidding, we have
    actually seen riders losing their life while on
    the bike for some silly mistakes.
  • So here are some of the safety measures which you
    can take care of while planning your road
    journey.

Measures
  • Choosing Your Motorcycle
  • Different Motorcycles are made for different
    purposes. On the race track you wouldn't enjoy
    the long stroke easy thumping engine of an RE.
  • Similarly a sharp KTM RC would not make a
    friendly touring bike or so much fun during an
    off road session. That being said, it is not a
    thumb rule to buy a bike only built for a
    purpose.

Measures
  • If you're a corner junky and occasionally feel
    the urge to saddle up and tour, also if you're
    willing to go the distance, any bike would do the
    trick.
  • It is important however to choose a bike you're
    comfortable riding. Even if you're bike isn't
    touring ready, a little light modifications here
    and there with the help of your local mechanic
    you'll be ready to roll.
  • While touring there is always the other option of
    borrowing a bike that's more lower back friendly.
    Keep your friends close!

Measures
  • Inspect Your Bike
  • Scan your bike and check the condition of your
    Tires, Light, Clutch, brakes, and fuel lines
    before every session.
  • Insurance
  • Always be prepared for the worst case scenario
    when it comes to Motorcycle Travel. Carrying a
    health insurance policy along with your
    motorcycle insurance will help you take care of
    any medical emergencies with ease.

Measures
  • Also carry the originals of your driving license,
    motorcycle papers and motorcycle insurance with
    you at all times. Keep a few photo copies as
    spare in your backpacks to be doubly sure.
  • 4. Route Planning
  • Plan your route thoroughly. Make sure you know
    the places in between where you can halt for the
    night, a place to get fuel, food etc. GPS and
    Google maps are extremely helpful when there is
    nobody else on the road to ask for directions.
    But a road atlas map book works best and should
    be with you on your motorcycle at all times.

Measures
  • Talk to your friends and family who have done the
    route before, make notes. If you're finding it
    difficult to get information from social circle,
    search online. Reading blogs have always helped
    gather information from other travelers without
    physically having to converse with them.
  • 5. Take a Motorcycle Safety Course
  • Imagine yourself to be in the middle of the road
    and your bike has broken down. The first thing
    that comes to your mind is to find a mechanic.
    But what if you are in a remote place where
    finding one is difficult?

Measures
  • Probably the skills learned in the Motorcycle
    repair workshop will become a savior here. It is
    always good to know how to make small quick
    repairs on your motorcycle. Take a 7 day class
    with any mechanic at least 2 months prior to your
    actual travel.
  • 6. Wear your Life saver
  • The most basic and most important of all safety
    measures while riding, is wearing a helmet. It
    can be a deciding factor between "late" or the
    "late Mr."! Of course, wearing a helmet isnt
    enough.

Measures
  • Buying a good one is equally important. An ISI
    approved are the safest bets those helmets are
    tested. Make sure your helmet fits properly. It
    shouldnt be too tight or too loose. It shouldnt
    obstruct your vision, but it should cover most of
    your heads.
  • Stay Visible and Predictable
  • It is best to ride between Sunrise to sunset.
    Most accidents in India occur at night. But if
    you are riding in the night anyway, then use the
    lights. Drivers are used to the patterns of other
    drivers, so dont weave in and out of traffic.
    The more predictably you ride, the safer you are.

Measures
  • Leave Enough Space
  • One of the biggest mistakes motorcycle riders
    make is not leaving enough stopping distance
    behind another vehicle. Dont fully depend on
    your emergency brakes.
  • Pay attention
  • You cannot afford to get distracted even for a
    second. Being attentive is the key to getting
    the most out of the experience and staying out of
    trouble. Get a full nights sleep and stay
    properly hydrated.

Measures
  • 10. Watch the Weather
  • Check the weather before going for the ride. If
    heavy rain or snow is predicted, then do not take
    the risk. Be extra cautious when you are on your
    way. Also remember, when rain first hits the
    road, it makes the road extremely slippery.
  • Even if the weather is supposed to be perfect,
    make sure youre prepared for weather that isnt.
    Waterproof equipment will make the hot parts
    cooler, wetter parts dryer, and the cold parts
    warmer.

Planning For Your Bike Trip Take Care Of Safety
Measures
  • Carry your Food and Water
  • Dont eat too heavy before riding, because big
    meals take a lot of energy to digest and will
    make you drowsy. That being said, dont ever ride
    on a empty stomach! Carry some readymade food
    with you all the time.
  • Dry fruits, protein bars make excellent snacks
    and great source of energy. Easy to carry too,
    fit well in your pockets. Carry water and make it
    a point to drink some every time you stop (even
    if you are not thirsty). It is important to stay
    hydrated.

Measures
  • 12. Get the Right Gear
  • Not just the bike and the helmet, what you wear
    is also a part of your safety and protection
    while riding. Theres a reason a lot of bikers
    wear leather its strong enough to protect you
    in crash.
  • Although Leathers are preferred, understanding
    the weather condition in India, they can get
    cumbersome to wear all the time.
  • So, invest some money in a textile mesh armored
    jacket, gloves and a pair of knee guards at
    least. NEVER RIDE IN SLIPPER OR FLOATERS.

Measures
  • Always use a good pair of sport shoes or riding
    shoes. Army boots are good and cheap alternatives
    to riding boots.
  • First Aid Kit
  • It is good to remain well prepared. Carry a
    complete first aid kit. You will require the kit
    for minor accidents, if not major.
  • Trust your instincts, if you're going too fast or
    getting fatigued, slow down or exit and take a
    break.
