Motorcycle Packing List

After three years since my cross country motorcycle trip I’ve learned to pack different things now. Obviously I don’t bring everything on every trip. I just use this form so I know I’ve at least considered everything. Usually on the weekend trips I only bring about 1/2 the stuff. The longer trips do require preparation.

The key things to remember:

  • The two most important things after safety gear are a driver’s license,  credit card, and some cash
  • Know how to use every tool you bring
  • Memorize at least one phone number for help just in case you are not able to use your phone
