Motorcycle Packing

Below is the "ultimate" motorcycle packing list, compiled following years of touring experiences – good and bad.  It can be used as a luggage checklist when going on a road trip so you can be sure not to forget anything. Because everyone has different needs, tastes and luggage capacity, we have classified the items in three categories: Vital, Plus and Luxury. This helps decide whether it is necessary, a helpful bonus or something you can easily do without. And because you will want to customise it to your own tastes, you can download an Excel version of it here.  If you have any suggestions for our motorbike tour packing list, get in touch at puncture@twistyride.com. We’re always interested to know fellow bikers’ opinions on whether we’re packing everything but the kitchen sink or missing things out.
