4 tips before embarking on your next motorcycle adventure

Motorcycles have been an essential mode of transport for delivering food, groceries, and other necessities nowadays.

Before the pandemic arrived in the country, the motorcycle had long been a favorite way to travel for leisure. Many rider clubs were also formed over the years. For most Filipino riders, motorcycle riding allows them to experience adventure which serves as a form of therapy.

As the leading motorcycle manufacturer in the country, Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) believes that motorcycle riding provides physical and mental benefits and helps develop cognitive functions. “Riders pride themselves on the sense of freedom motorcycles have given them in their life. As a rider myself, touring in many different places can truly liberate us from all the hardships of life, something many Filipinos seek these days,” HPI President Susumu Mitsuishi said in a statement.

Since stricter quarantine protocols are currently implemented, many Filipinos are now longing again for a feeling of freedom. If you are planning to de-stress once the community quarantine restrictions are eased, try to travel with a motorcycle. HPI has shared some tips to help every rider get ready for their next adventure.

Make sure you have the right gear.

Motorcycle gear not only ensures the safety of the rider, but it also improves the ride quality. The basic equipment that all riders should have includes helmet, padded clothes, and riding gloves. For a comfortable riding experience, riders can also use padded grips for extra cushioning for the hands and wrists. Gel seats can also be installed for additional support.

HPI also encourages every rider to have rain protection gear to avoid getting too wet during the rainy season. Eyewear and facemasks must also be worn to keep yourself protected from the heavy and dirty air disinterred by other vehicles.

Know your route.

Before hitting the road, study the route that you will take and make sure that it provides the perfect weather, traffic, and view. Most motorcycle riders go out to relax, so it is best to prepare for any obstacles that may come your way in order to enjoy a hassle-free adventure.

Conduct an inspection of your motorcycle.

Always remember to check the letters comprising BLOWBAGETS before heading out to avoid any unexpected breakdown in the middle of the road. BLOWBAGETS means battery, lights, oil, water, brakes, air, gas, engine, tire, and self. It is important to plan and prepare for every motorcycle ride, especially the long-distance ones, as it is a challenge for your mind and body.

Choose the right ride.

The best way to enjoy your motorcycle tour is having the right ride. Your motorcycle must deliver the best speed, control, and efficiency to make every journey fun and exhilarating. It is also important for a motorcycle to have an excellent braking performance to ensure safety at all times.
