Hitting the open road is the dream, isn’t it? So many of us long for the day that we can set off on a road trip, either on our own or with our closest friends, leaving our worries behind us for a few days or weeks. If you have started to plan that perfect road trip, you know that there are some essentials that you are going to need to take along that are above and beyond your usual tools and all-weather gear. A multi-day trip calls for changes of clothes, toiletries for hotel rooms, water, snacks, cell phone chargers and beyond. As you are deciding on the best way to transport all of your essentials, be sure to start by determining your motorcycle’s weight rating to make sure that your total combined gear isn’t going to exceed what your bike can safely handle on a long trip. Once you know that you are going to be safe, you can choose the perfect luggage for your ride. Saddlebags for motorcycles are a timeless classic that is perfect for road trips.

When you are shopping for the perfect saddlebag, leather is a solid choice. Leather is a durable material that is going to do a lot to protect your gear from the elements across the miles. With proper maintenance, leather is going to last you for many years to come, no matter how hard you treat it. Not only is leather a strong, weatherproof material, it’s also classically rugged and will look great on your motorcycle. You can choose from a huge variety of colors, not to mention awesome features. Features like embossed designs, studs and fringe add personality to your new luggage.

As you are picking out your new saddlebags, consider the important features that will make them useful to you. A roomy interior is a must, to ensure that you have the room you need for all of your essentials. A buckle closure is going to give you confidence that your belongings are stowed safely. A padded handle makes it easy to take your saddlebags off for the night as you wrap up a long day on the open road. By choosing saddle bags that look great and work well, you are making sure that your trip goes well. Rather than just strapping some luggage to your motorcycle, get saddlebags that you can be proud of.

Are you in love with the open road? There is nothing better than hopping on your motorcycle and hitting the road, whether you are riding for the afternoon, a whole day or for an extended, long-distance trip. However you like to ride, comfort is key as the miles stretch on. It’s important to bring along your tunes, plenty of hydration and the safety gear that you need. But more than that, it helps to bring tools with you to be able to do quick repairs on the go, as well as all-weather gear to deal with unexpected rain or shine, food for those beautiful sight-seeing stops and anything else that you enjoy having with you to feel comfortable and secure. You can fit most of this stuff into a backpack, of course, but to really enjoy the freedom of the ride it helps to have the right storage with you. The best motorcycle luggage is going to be convenient, durable and attractive on your bike.

What should you look for when you are shopping for the perfect motorcycle luggage? For many of us, fashion is first; you want the bags that are going to look sleek and sexy on your motorcycle. We recommend investing in leather. Leather is a classic material for any kind of biking and it only looks better with time and wear. Not only that, leather is durable and versatile, giving your luggage structure while also being malleable and adjustable. You can choose leather in a wide range of colors, including classic black, as well as embellishments that allow you to show off your style.

You can use any combination of luggage that best suits your needs on your ride. For the most versatility and convenience, it’s best to get a set that allows you to mix and match the best luggage for your needs. A great set is going to include a set of saddlebags that you can quickly and easily access, for larger necessities like spare gear and clothing. Any set you are considering should also have a windshield bag for the items you want to keep in front of you. For tools, bring along a tool bag that is extra durable and able to withstand the shifting of your standard tool kit. A backpack is going to also be handy on those trips where you might want to take some of your necessities indoors once you reach your destination. The right luggage set is going to be helpful no matter where your travels take you!

The ATV Experience

March 13, 2020 1:12 am
posted by GatheringMotorcycleGear

If you’re a person who likes wild, thrilling adventures, you’re probably in love with ATVs (all-terrain vehicle). Riding an ATV can be the perfect way to pass your summer break this year. But sadly, a minimal amount of people are aware of the joyriding an ATV can bring. Apart from the fun ATVs bring from being exposed to the adventurous outdoors, another added advantage of having an ATV is being able to drive it on all sorts of terrains. To experience the joy of riding an ATV to the fullest, it is essential that you have all the necessary equipment needed to make the experience worth your while. ATV bags, for example, are an indispensable tool for every ATV rider. They keep the essential stuff for your ATV riding experience safe with you while you’re taking your ride. The things you can keep in your bag can include water bottles, engine oil, and gloves.

Riding an ATV is a fun experience because it allows you to cover a lot of distance in a short period of time. Riding an ATV gives you the chance to experience nature completely while doing it. A car is enclosed and doesn’t let you experience nature the same way an ATV does, and a ride on an ATV enables you to escape from the stress of everyday life, and it provides you with an opportunity to reconnect with yourself. And besides, why wouldn’t anyone enjoy the ATV experience? It gives you the chance to put in some great exercise while having a lot of fun. ATV rides are known to elevate heart rates, and they can improve aerobic capabilities.

Although riding an ATV can be fun, it’s always important to stay hydrated while doing it. Having an ATV bag with you while you’re riding your ATV can allow you to carry a water bottle with you. The sun and the demanding physical endurance ATV riding requires can make anyone feel dehydrated. And apart from carrying water bottles in your bag, you can also take band aids. Band aids are also an essential item you can have if you carry an ATV bag along with you every time you go for a ride. No matter how great you are at riding your ATV, injuries can happen at any time and anywhere. Having a band aid in your ATV bag keeps you prepared and saves you from any severe damage.

Why should you Cover your Bike?

You finally got the two-wheeler you had been eyeing for a while. Whether you chose it for economical reasons or the experience it provides, your scooter will offer you companionship for a while to come, if you keep it maintained, that is. While we all know the importance of wearing helmets to protect our head from injury, we neglect the fact that our bikes need covers too, for protection of their own! While you may be sitting comfortably at home when it’s raining outside, your scooter could be taking the brunt of rain and wind. With a protective scooter cover, you can ensure your precious drive remains safe even in extreme weather conditions. If you thought your scooter was only vulnerable in thunderstorms, think again! Prolonged exposure to the sun can also harm your scooters without adequate protection.

Another big dilemma for bike owners is the fear of thieves and thugs who are looking for an opportunity to steal a bike or its parts to sell. Most small time thieves roaming around the streets are opportunists. The moment they see an uncovered bike, they will jump at the chance to steal it. However, the cover on the bike is an added impediment for the robbers who are in a hurry. It would take time to take the whole cover off, and the commotion will attract attention, more often than not saving your scooter from theft.

If you plan to upgrade to another model later, your bike that has withstood rough handling might not be in the best of conditions to be resold at a good price. Now imagine that you religiously covered your bike every time you parked it somewhere. This way, stray cats were not able to scratch the bike. The scooter dodged bird droppings. The destruction from nearby tree branches or twigs falling on the bike, since we usually tend to park under the shade of trees, was avoided. When you sell a bike in pristine condition, you’re bound to get a better price. It is imperative every bike owner invests in a scooter cover that will lend their bike protection from outside elements. Scooter covers come in different colors, designs, and materials so you can choose one that is specific to the weather conditions in the area you reside. If rain is your biggest threat, get a waterproof cover. You can even get a scooter cover customized for your bike.

Why Choose Motorcycle Barrel Bags

posted by GatheringMotorcycleGear

Thank you for stopping by the blog and welcome to the blog. Are you looking for storage solutions for your motorcycle that is affordable and easy to use? Finding places to store things on your bike can be tough, that’s why saddle bags are a great addition to nearly any motorcyclists’ collection of gear. You can have the best bike in the world but if you can’t store everything you need while on the road then it won’t help you. You need to keep extra clothes or towels sometimes, especially for those that ride full time. This means keeping your basic hand tools handy and keeping all the little things you could need for a repair or something happens. You need to be able to travel with more than the clothes on your body too so motorcycle barrel bags are a great choice for people that need storage.

There are many makers out there of barrel bags and saddle bags. It really all comes down to your own preference and how much room you have on your bike. A good barrel bag will have extra straps for a bedroll or other attachment and it should have more than one pocket to keep your stuff in, it should be easy to install and take off and shouldn’t give you any headaches while putting it on or taking it off. If you are having trouble finding a good barrel bag, try finding a good small company that sells motorcycle gear. You can use Google to do this. Just search for motorcycle gear or barrel bags and Google will sort out some of the places that sell them. Keep in mind that many of the top results on the first page and around it are going to be ads and those will be from the bigger stores out there. They have the marketing and advertising money to run those to make sure that they show up on the top of the list with ads even if they don’t have exactly what you are looking for.

Thanks for stopping by and for reading. We hope that you found something that you can use and that you can apply. If you choose a barrel bag, write in and let us know which one. We are always interested to hear from readers. Stop by again soon for new blogs, we post them regularly and update the blog often.

If you haven’t already purchased your ideal version, we are here to recommend that you invest in a windshield bag.

Many bikers choose to invest in a quality windshield bag to keep their small accessories in. Why? These bags are perfect for keeping the essentials right at your fingertips so that you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. Many bikers choose to keep only the necessities in the bag. For you, that might be a spare pair of sunglasses, a bandana, lip balm or any of the other things you keep with you to make a ride more comfortable. It’s also a great place to store your wallet, cell phone and camera while you’re riding; keeping them in front of you will reassure you that your valuables are still there and they are easy to bring along when you’re parked.

When you are searching for the perfect bag for your bike, be sure to keep in mind the essential features that will help you to feel safe and secure in your purchase.

For larger carrying capacity, you can also opt for one large compartment to make storage easier than ever. Look for a bag that has the clasp that you need, whether that’s a snap, buckles, a zipper or a turn knob. Enjoy your ride!
