LONG-DISTANCE TRIP? PLAN LIKE A PRO

Pack for the road

Determine how long you will be gone, where you plan to go, and where you plan to stay. Invest in some good saddlebags and tank bags, and make sure you pack a safety and repair kit.

Inspect your bike

Dress to adapt

Wearing several thin layers is better than a few thick ones because you can add or shed layers as needed. A good touring suit is also a great idea.

Have snacks at the ready

When you're far from a restaurant or convenience store, having a few energy bars, trail mix, and bottled water will help you fend off hunger and stay sharp while riding.

Centralize the weight

When loading your bike, put the heavier/more solid items on the bottom and sides closer to the bike. Lighter items go on top. Secure loose items with a Bungee net.

Protect your money-maker

A full-face helmet offers max protection during accidents and from the elements.

Plan, plan, plan!

Plan a route and get the most out of your daylight, stop whenever is necessary, fuel up often, and invest in a GPS...or just tape the directions to your fuel tank (unless it's raining).

WITCHDOCTOR'S BIKE OF THE MONTH

Brian Lininger: 2009 Victory Hammer

Brian bought his Hammer in June 2010 and has since put in a lot of work, including:

  • Factory wheels have been chromed
  • Replaced round headlight with bullet style
  • MBW rear turn signals
  • Side-mount license plate holder
  • Kuryakyn smooth vs. swept exhaust
  • Chrome swing arm from Conquest Customs
  • Added cams (106hp/112tq), power commander, S&S airbag, timing wheel, cruise control, & 1/4-turn throttle ring

A drop left a big dent in the gas tank, which led to a new paint job, seat recover, and under-glow lights. Brian went with Tequila Gold over the factory Ice Blue paint. For distance riding, he has a lock-and-ride windshield, saddle bags on ghost brackets, and a Victory touring seat.

Congratulations, Brian! It's a great bike. We look forward to hearing about your rides along the Blue Ridge Parkway and The Tail of the Dragon!
