Riding a motorcycle is more than just a form of transportation. This is an experience that hooks riders for life. Motorcycles are fuel-efficient ways of getting from one destination to the next, but they require a level of experience for longer trips. 

Without a doubt, riders need to have their full attention on the road ahead — but what if you get hungry? After all, some of the best rides go for hours at a time. Lucky for you, Design Corse is here to provide motorcycle trip tips that will transform your cruising lifestyle for good.

Motorcycle Trip Tips for Long Rides

If you're planning for a longer ride, why not pack a bag? This might not be anything new for more experienced riders, but you always want to plan for the unexpected. This includes getting hungry on the road.

Motorcycles are a physical workout. Keeping balance and staying alert requires the use of your arms, legs, hands, and feet at all times. If you do get hungry, it's important to pack snacks to replenish your energy. For riding, packaged and canned goods are essential. Here are our five favorite snacks for a motorcycle ride. 

Snacks for Motorcycle Riders

  1. Nuts: Nuts are a fantastic source of protein. Whether you are purchasing peanuts, almonds or cashews, this snack is inexpensive and available in cans or reusable bags. If you're planning to eat nuts on a motorcycle ride, try to shy away from sugar-coated options that will make you thirsty.
  2. Fruits/Dried Fruits: Stopping to eat an apple, orange, or pear adds a nice taste of vitamin C to your trip. Fruits help to keep you alert and full of energy with natural sugars, and they take up little space in your bag.
  3. Carrots/Celery: Carrots, celery and other vegetables are light in weight and make great snacks. These foods share nutritional value and last several days without refrigeration.
  4. Beef and Turkey Jerkies: This recommendation comes with a fair warning. Most dried meats on the market are extremely high in salt. With a little research, you can find a number of healthy jerkies that are made with natural ingredients and low levels of sodium.
  5. Energy Bars: Energy bars are convenient because they are prepackaged and take up little room in your travel bag. Be sure to scan the ingredients for whole grains, dried fruits, and nuts. This is an ideal snack for riding because energy bars combine several items from this list into a single serving.
