Find Gear that keeps you Touring
Basic Riding Gear
My Process before buying motorcycle gear and accessories
Whenever I’m thinking about making a purchase, I try to find someone who owns the gear and ask them what they like and don’t about what they’re using.
If you don’t mind talking to people, other riders are a great resource for learning about gear, tips and hacks to improve your ride. I enjoy meeting and speaking with other motorcyclists and find out how their bikes are set up and what they use.
I also spend a lot of time researching gear online (probably just like you) in addition to gathering opinions about motorcycle gear.
Here’s what I do:
- Start online and research
- Talk to riders I either know, or meet
- Make adjustments and purchase
Think of this page like talking to a rider who has researched and/or tried the gear!
My goal with this page is to recommend gear that is reasonably priced and is road tested. This is gear that I own or researched extensively.
