Travel kit contents to pack when going on a long trip
Planning a long trip? Here are a few items you should have with you:
  • Tire gauge
  • Tire in a can
  • Flat tire kit
  • Duck tape
  • Zap straps
  • Basic tool kit for the bike (plyers, wrenches, screw drivers, etc)
  • All weather gear (cold, wet)
  • Water and snacks
  • Small first aid kit
  • Plan fuel stops
  • Plan services if longer than 1500 km trip
  • Jerry can for extra fuel if travelling in remote areas
  • Satellite phone if travelling in remote areas
  • Safety inspection on the bike (condition of brakes, chain and sprockets, tires, oil, etc)
  • Let someone know your route, and check in with them!

It's also a good idea to plan your route using an online mapping tool (Google, Mapquest, etc). We use this tool to map out how long each day's ride will take, gas stops, and possible rest stops.
