You should also take into account where you will be riding when you pack for a long motorbike ride. In some remote parts, it might be almost impossible to find someone to find spares if your bike breaks down. In contrast, you’ll find a mechanic or a garage every few kilometers while riding in Vietnam and you have no need to carry spares. Weather conditions are another factor you need to consider.If it’s going to be raining all your gear has to be waterproof.
Having a pillion passenger is good because you’ll have someone to talk to. Trust me, long days of riding can get pretty boring. But it also poses challenges as when it comes to packing. You’ll have to discuss and agree on what and how you are going to pack for your long motorbike ride to avoid confusions and arguments on the road.
