We wrote a dedicated guide just to answer this question because we get asked it so often.
Our How to Go on a Motorcycle Adventure guide is an introduction to bike travel. It explains what you need to know, how to prep and what to expect. Once you’ve had a read of that, you’ll find loads more detailed guides for specific areas of bike travel in our Guides section such as riding gear, luggage, packing, adventure motorcycles and much more.
If you’re looking to go on a round the world trip, then we also have a dedicated Guides section on RTW travel too that explains everything you need to know.
We are building this site to be a detailed resource to help you prepare for and go on a motorcycle adventure or even round the world.
But, if you can’t find what you’re looking for here, don’t worry. Just visit our Contact page and send us an email. We’re always happy to help fellow motorcycle travellers.
