Published on 25 Mar 2021

5 Tips for our first-time Bikers!

Place yourself in the middle of rustic roads and leafy trees, the car window never blocking you from feeling the wind hitting your face. Feels too good to be true? Bike trips are like a dream come true!

We have made your planning a lot easier by jotting down 5 helpful bike touring tips for first-time bikers-

Ditch ‘cool-looking bikes’ and select comfortable rides

It would be wise to test your bike before vrooming off on a bike trip. Make short trips here and there before the actual motorbike tour. 

Do your due diligence before purchasing the bike of your dreams or if you plan to rent one. 

Do not be swayed by a cool-looking bike, as looks would not guarantee your safety and comfort. 

Here are some spiffy yet comfortable rides to give your research on bike travel a headstart- 

  • Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350
  • Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220
  • Harley Davidson SuperLow
  • KTM 390 Duke
  • Honda CBR 250R
  • Royal Enfield Himalayan
  • Mahindra Mojo XT300
  • Jawa Perak
  • Suzuki V-Strom 650 X

Start with a group Bike Tour

Always take baby steps when you kick off something new. And, the same principle applies to bike tours as well. 

When you are all set with your motorbike, consider a group bike trip before moving on to solo bike tours. 

Group bike tours ease you into the whole bike traveling scene. And you would learn tremendously from your fellow riders and bike leaders when you begin the awesome route of solo bike travel!

Map out the route to take and the fuel stations

For this, we have 3 sub-tips for you

Bring the GPS into play! Make use of advanced technology and let GPS lead the way. It would also save you from the hassle of looking for fuel stations.

Get a mobile holder to uncomplicate your bike travel roue.

Moreover, you can even invest in one of those helmets with fitted Bluetooth.  

For areas where network bars seem to dwindle- Keep a hardcopy of maps ready.

And, do not hesitate to tap the locals for directions!

Be your own Mechanic 

The journey might be a long one, and not calculating for mishaps would be a foolish move. So, watch and learn how to change a punctured tire via youtube videos. 

It will sound like an overly-technical task, but you do not know what the roads have lined up for your motorbike trip!

So, practice-changing wheels rather than waiting for it to happen during one of your bike tours. 

Maybe plow money into tubeless tires as they would not go flat unless the puncture’s massive. 

Remember- Prevention is better than cure.

Taking breaks stands true to a skillful biker

Do not go exhausting yourself on your first bike tour! Also, since your adrenaline rush would be towering, taking breaks would be a clever move.

Listen to your body and hit the brake to relax.

Make use of the breaks to appreciate the beauty surrounding you and checking the tank. 

Also, do not forget to pat yourself on the back for taking an exhilarating bike trip for the first time!

Visit Leh-Ladakh or bike on the exhilarating roads of Bhutan. After all, it is just you and the bike, driving away all the worries of this world. Bike tours are an exciting opportunity and, we make it even more so by filling your travel itinerary with electrifying activities!
