8 Essentials You Might Forget To Bring On Your Next Trip

The sun is out, the weather is warm and the road is clear. It's time for your next big trip. If you're anything like me, you're so excited that you want to swing that leg over your Wing and ride. Let's go already! But let's take a minute and make sure we have everything packed and nothing's missing. Isn't it the worst when we realize we've forgotten to pack some minor yet essential item? That's why we've compiled a short list (in no particular order) of some items we don't want you to forget on your next trip.

Check out our newest blog post where we talk about some important yet potentially overlooked items when traveling on your Wing. Click below to read and let us know what you think!

You need to add a tire repair kit including a pump or CO2 cartridges. Have had to plug the rear tire on my GL1800 atleast 5 or 6 times while on the road I would ride without one.. Many auto tire shops wont touch a motorcycle tire.

I carry a bunch of change (mostly quarters) in a little plastic holder. It is handy for toll roads and parking meters. An extra rag or two, or some folded paper towels come in very handy. A few zip ties don't take up much space. A cooling vest or collar can make a hot day a bit more enjoyable. I always carry at least two bottles of water.

Good point, Tal. It has been a while since I paid cash for tolls. But in the past I had instances that made me wish that I'd been carrying the coins. Those instances encouraged me to begin the practice. And of course, when my riding pals and I pull up to parking meters I'm their favorite person. : )
