Numerous options are available in the market for the budding motorbike enthusiast. From add-ons to the motorbike itself to additional motorbike gear for the rider, there is a great deal to choose from.
If you are a beginner, here are some tips to help point you in the right direction:
The first thing you need to consider is the right motorbike apparel and gear for you. A helmet is a must! Motorcycle boots are a good investment as well. Of course, you shouldn’t stop there. Get a second set of motorbike apparel for safekeeping in your bike luggage rack. After all, you’re sure to need a change of clothes on one of your long rides.
Throughout the history of motorbikes, motorcycle boots have come a long way. There are now so many colors and styles to choose from. A favorite among riders are the WWII-style boots. They are durable, water resistant, and have high sides to protect the rider from muffler burns.
You probably won’t need to buy more than one helmet—unless of course you have a partner riding with you for your trips. If that is the case, you’ll definitely need to ensure you have enough motorbike luggage storage space. Some options for motorcycle luggage are motorcycle saddle bags, sissy bar bags, and leather windshield bags, and leather tool bags.
When buying gear for your motorbike rides, you might need to buy some leather cleaning products as well. There may be a lot of options to choose from, so it’s best to ask the shop owner directly for some recommendations best suited for your purchases.
The smell of the oil, the vibrations from the seat, and the cool breeze on your face as you slip on your helmet and go for a ride. You have your boots on and an extra change of clothes ready to go. You ease the clutch out, rev the throttle, and begin to glide forward. Nothing compares to riding a motorbike. You and the road become one, with your motorbike as the medium.
