Going on a road trip is a dream that lingers in the mind of almost every motorcyclist. Escaping the daily grind, riding out onto the open road, going wherever the wind of fate leads you—it’s the biker’s heaven. So what’s stopping you? Are you afraid you won’t be able to get the time off? Do you think you don’t have the money to do it? Do you think it’s going to be too much of a bother? Well we’ve got some reasons why none of that stuff should matter.
Five Reasons Motorcycle Road Trips Are Good For You
- You will learn about yourself–Having to pack light, forgoing the creature comforts, and injecting your life with a serious dose of independence can make you think. On a motorcycle road trip you get to think about what’s weighing you down—a bad relationship, stress, your job—and you can come up with new ways to deal with these problems.
- You will learn about your motorcycle–Nothing teaches more about your bike than being stranded on the side of the road with just a paper clip and a rubber band. Okay, so we can’t all be like MacGyver, but being handy at motorcycle maintenance will get you out of a lot of bad situations, and it’ll teach you how to pack a basic tool kit.
- You will find places you never imagined– Exploring is half the reason we ride, and there’s a lot of exploring to do between the here and there of a road trip. Taking a left turn in the middle of nowhere can lead you to great restaurants, town festivals, and quaint holes in the wall.
- You will find freedom–Making every decision, every turn, and every stop that you want to make while feeling the wind in your face is an experience that changes your life. What do you think you could do with all that freedom?
- You will have tales to tell–You will explore strange places, endure the odd hardship or two, meet new people, make new friends, eat things you never heard of before and smile all the way home. That sounds like quite the adventure, and adventures are the building blocks of every great story!
