How to prepare for your trip
We bet you’re excited to get on the welcoming open road, but first, you need to know more about this motorcycle tour extravaganza as a rider. Preparing for the trip is important, and there are some things you need to know before embarking on the adventure. Right off the bat, you should be aware that our tours don’t do motorcycle camping, and we stay in comfortable hotels along the way.
First, you need to be sure that you have the proper motorcycling license. American states have strict rules that require motorcyclists to be licensed; if yours works in Australia, it will be good in the States.
Second, we require that all participants buy travel insurance to protect themselves and the group on our journey. Make sure that you have the correct clothing and shoes for the motorcycle ride cruise. While many people already know how to dress comfortably and safely while on the bike, it’s important that you pack correctly. For example, you’ll need to pack your own helmet, or a standard one will be provided. Bring protective glasses, gloves and boots and refrain from riding in loose clothing.
Each tour may have different requirements, so it’s important to take a look at the package that you have picked. If you have more questions and are unsure how to prepare, you can talk to our guides to learn more. Most of all, though, you’ll need to be prepared to have the time of your life! Our guides are here to take care of you and ensure that you are ready to experience America’s Main Street as it was meant to be.
