Trailside Mechanics at Their Finest

There’s nothing quite like a great adventure ride on your motorcycle. What better way see beautiful places, strengthen relationships or make new friends? However, the more you ride the more you come to realize a certain truth: motorcycles break down from time to time. Whether it’s a flat tire, a leak in a hose or case, a busted lever from tipping over or maybe even a broken chain – once in a while there will be a need to do some trailside repairs on your bike.

Flat Tires Happen, so Make Sure You Are Prepared!

Since it’s not always easy to forecast what you think could go wrong on your motorcycle, it makes knowing which tools and products to pack difficult sometimes as well. After many adventure rides and plenty of opportunities to learn by experience, we’ve zeroed in on some of the basic tools and accessories we’d rather not be without on our adventure rides. Keeping in mind that every bike and ride is a little different than the next, we think we’ve narrowed it down to a pretty handy tool kit. Take a look at which tools and accessories we don’t go without in the video below.

Get Ready for Your Next Adventure!

The primary takeaway from the video is to know your motorcycle and the parts it takes so you can know the tools and hardware that are required for maintaining it. Some beforehand knowledge will help you pack the appropriate tools and hardware, and ensure you have what you need when you need it. It will also ensure you aren’t carrying the extra weight of unnecessary items around. Hopefully we’ve helped you get a pretty good idea of what you need to bring in your tool pack so that you’re ready for whatever comes while you are on your next ride.

Take a look below for the tools highlighted in the video that Justin keeps in his tool pack. Just click on any picture and it will take you directly to the product on our site so you can buy them for your tool pack!
