Important Safety Tips to Remember When You’re out on Harley Motorcycle Rentals in Las Vegas

Taking a bike out on the road comes with its own set of inherent dangers: dangers that experienced riders have come to understand and learn how to mitigate after years of riding. And while it can be said that most bikes are the same, it should also be noted that they’re just different enough to warrant some getting used to—especially if you’re hopping into the saddle of a bike that’s different from what you’re used to.

For most people who seek out Harley motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas, it takes a few miles before they’re truly comfortable, but after that, it’s smooth sailing! For some people, however, hitting the road on a hog that’s not what you’re used to can be an experience that’s a little bit daunting. Take a look at a few safety tips to remember when you’re mounting a bike that’s not your own and what you can do to make sure your time on the road is as safe and comfortable as possible:

  • Before you turn the key and fire up your rental bike, take a moment to make sure it’s the right model for you. If you’re used to a lightweight, smaller bike, you might have to skim through available Harley motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas to find one that’s more to your familiarity. Likewise, if you’re used to a bigger ride that packs a bit more power, give yourself the opportunity to pick something that is more in line with your riding style.
  • Always be sure to check yourself relative to your bike before you head off on your highway adventure. This means making sure your mirrors are aligned appropriately, you’re seat is accommodating, your gear bags and satchels are secure and you’re dressed appropriately for the journey ahead. The last thing you want is to wind up disoriented or uncomfortable midway through your ride, where you’re in no position to adjust!
  • If you’re scoping out Harley motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas, there’s a good chance you’re going to be riding with a group. Most bike owners understand the dynamic of riding in a group, but if you’re a beginner or a casual rider who’s not used to group rides, it’s important to be alert as to how the group dynamic is at any given time. Don’t ride to close or too far, know the signs and signals that your group may be using to communicate and always know your position in the group relative to those riding around you.
  • In continuation of the point above, always have a way to communicate with those who may be riding with you on the road. Whether you’ve all got headset communicators or you’ve predetermined pullover points and stops, being on the same communication wavelength will not only make your trip more enjoyable, it’ll make it safer.

These are just a few of the core safety considerations to keep in mind if you’re renting a motorcycle and hitting the road in Vegas. Ride smart, stay alert and you’ll have a great time as you trek through the desert to see sights that are unique to this amazing region of the country.

Preparing for a Motorcycle Rental in Las Vegas: What You Need to Know

If you’re looking for an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind vacation experience, motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas may just be the perfect thing for you. Whether you want to rent your motorcycle for an extended amount of time, or just for a quick trip, it can be one of the most exciting ways to see Las Vegas and its surrounding areas.

Whether it’s your first official ride or one of many, it’s always important to be prepared before heading out onto the open road. You want to make sure that you, anyone traveling by you, and your bike are taken care of in order to make sure your ride goes smoothly.

Here are some of the steps and preparations you should make when you decide to do a motorcycle rental in Las Vegas:

Make sure your insurance is up to date. When renting a motorcycle in Las Vegas, the insurance is automatically included with the bike; however, there are additional coverage options you can choose from. Those options are:

  • SLI Coverage: this is an additional liability insurance that provides up to $300,000 for any sort of damage to property or other people.
  • PAI/PEI Coverage: this is an additional accidental death insurance option that provides 24-hour accident protection to the person who rents the bike, as well as their immediate family member who is traveling with them.

Make sure you meet the requirements. Renting a motorcycle isn’t just walking up, paying some money and taking a bike out on the road. There are some requirements that have to be met in order to rent a bike, such as:

  • You must be at least 21 years of age or older.
  • You have to have an up to date, valid motorcycle license.
  • You must have a major credit card.

Make sure you have the proper equipment. Upon signing up for a motorcycle rental in Las Vegas, there is a list of items that will be provided for you in order to make sure your trip is safe and comfortable. Here are the items that are included in your rental:

  • Unlimited amount of mileage
  • Helmets for both the driver and the passenger
  • Goggles to protect your eyes
  • Gloves to protect your hands
  • Saddlebags
  • Backrest
  • Cable locks
  • 24-hour contact number in case of an emergency
  • Secure storage for your luggage

Should you decide, after booking, that this trip is not going to work for you for whatever reason, you do have the option to cancel. The policy is that you must cancel 14 days or more in advance to your trip in order to get a refund on your $50 deposit. If you need to cancel and it’s within the 14-day period, you will not receive a refund on your deposit and it will be used a rental you choose in the future. Furthermore, if you need to cancel and it’s within 48 hours of your rental, you deposit will be forfeited and you will lose that money.

Whether you’re looking for a long excursion out on the open road or a quick little road trip, motorcycle rentals in Las Vegas are the way to go. Call your local bike rental location today and start planning your next great adventure!

Florida Keys and Miami Breeze | Harley-Davidson x EagleRider

When temperatures and temperaments are down, it’s also the right time to go down… to the southernmost point in the lower 48 – Key West, Florida.

For most, Florida can be a polarizing state but one common tread is that it offers winter riding refuge for the poor saps and souls north of I-80.  Pro Skateboarder, GREG LUTZKA, rallied some snow birds together to migrate south this winter, starting from Miami and rolling down to Key West and back.

FOR THE 2 RIDING DAYS, WE SET OUR ROUTE:

Greg invited his brother ANDY, snowboarder and pilot ALEX D., and the always-good-vibes, mood-boostin’ snowboarder Johnny M. AKA MAMBA!!!

Along with photographer DREW MARTIN and videographer JORDAN LOVELIS (with his assistant MAX JUNK), to bottle up and bring back a bit of Florida sunshine through photos and video. 
https://www.youtube.com/embed/HBNZ2UkfhfA?controls=0

DAY 1 – MIAMI – KEY WEST

Packs were light, as this quick 2-day trip was set to maximum leisure and maximum sunshine. The crew did a quick rental pickup at EAGLERIDER MIAMI and snuck out of the city before Miami gridlock could grab ahold of everyone.

Once the Keys were in sight, stress laxed and the pace slowed down. The general speed limit throughout the key-hopping cruise is around 45 MPH. A refreshing pace for the Sportster and Softail models chosen by the riders for the journey. Two great cruiser candidates are the IRON 1200 and LOW RIDER Harley-Davidson models. Alex had never been on a Harley-Davidson before this trip, but felt right at home after a few hours on the Iron 1200.

The 113 mile (181 km), overseas highway, named U.S. Route 1, connects the Florida Keys together and offers entertaining stopping points along the way. A few selections include: Marker 88 on Plantation Key, a beachside seafood and cocktail hangout, Island Fish Co. on Marathon Key, a tiki-themed seafood spot on the water, and HOG Heaven in Islamodora, a roadhouse grill with plenty of smoked BBQ.

As everyone thawed out from a healthy dose of Florida Key sunshine, it was a race to the southernmost point buoy in Key West to catch the last rays of the day’s sunset. A hot tip while visiting the southernmost point buoy is to park a few blocks away, as parking is rare and limited around this tourist-magnet. The famous southernmost point concrete buoy has been standing since 1983 and has withstood several hurricanes, definitely worthy of an Instagram or Facebook post (to rub it in to all the family and friends back home underneath a few inches of that dreaded white snow).

DAY 2 – KEY WEST – MIAMI

Bellies were a rumbling along with the bikes in the morning, so we crept over to the Banana Café on Duval St. to fuel up on coffee, benedicts, and crepes.

The Florida Keys Scenic Highway takes you along multiple islands and the world famous Seven Mile Bridge, the longest bridge along the way. Heading back up, the squad elected to take a few pit stops around Seven Mile bridge and other scenic key bridges to take in ocean views and snap a couple photos.

If you’d like an excuse to take a detour off the main drag, stop by the EVERGLADES SAFARI PARK for an airboat tour or throw a leg over a water hog and stop by MIAMI WATERSPORTS to rent a couple of jet skis on your way back up to Miami.

Coming back to the congested streets and downtown of Miami may not be your favorite part of the trip, but there is a secret spot that will make take your breath away with sunset views. So that’s what we did.

We headed to Virginia Key and parked at Hobie Island Beach Park (only 20 minutes away from Downtown). You cross a beautiful bridge with great views all around and then enter a mini paradise where time seems to slow down and the sand is as white as you’ve ever seen.

While back in Miami, take a cruise over to Miami Beach to try out some heavenly Cuban and Haitian food, admire local art, shop, and relax on the beach.

END

This route offers leisurely cruising, aimed towards the rider who needs an escape from the frozen tundra or the rider in search of new views. This crew’s riding experience varied from never riding a HARLEY-DAVIDSON before to crunching some serious cross-country miles on an H-D. Although this ride may not offer the most complex riding, it does offer a colorful escape from colder climates and more than enough of an excuse to ditch work and soak up some sun.

Why the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Is Still One of the Most Iconic Bikes

If you’ve ever pictured a motorcycle rider on the open road, then chances are you’re seeing them riding on a Fat Boy without even realizing it. This classic bike is a piece of our culture, and the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy has quickly become a favorite among Las Vegas riders who are looking for the right mix of power, riding comfort and safety. Its rise to prominence is an interesting story that demonstrates why this bike has remained so popular and iconic over its three decades on the market.

Fat Boy history

The Fat Boy motorcycle first hit the market in 1990, and quickly became a sensation. Its designers, Louie Netz and Willie G. Davidson, had created a machine that had a little something for everyone. Many bikes on the road at that time had a “mass-produced” look to them and were starting to blend together. The Fat Boy and its “handmade” style changed all of that. Riders who wanted a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle in Las Vegas could now enjoy touches like a shotgun exhaust, a hand-laced leather seat and its signature yellow trim. All of these details created a bike that was both enduringly timeless and excitingly modern.

How the Fat Boy rides

When talking to fans of the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy in Las Vegas, one of the first things they usually mention is how the bike rides. It’s heavier than most familiar imports, for starters, but it isn’t overpowered either. In fact, its power makes it one of the more maneuverable bikes on the market. Furthermore, its low center of gravity means you’ll be comfortably hugging turns at any speed. Finally, its distinctive rumbling sound means everyone will know you’re coming when you’re riding down the road!

The Fat Boy in popular culture

One reason the Fat Boy maintains such a grip on our imagination is that it’s so frequently used in television and film. If you opt for a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy rental in Las Vegas, it’s easy to imagine yourself in scenes from Terminator 2: Judgment DaySeinfeld and Sons of Anarchy that all featured the exact same bike. It’s no surprise that it’s become a star—this beautiful machine looks great on camera and is a perfect symbol of timeless Americana. As a result, it remains firmly entrenched in pop culture as its popularity stays steady.

As Nevada’s premier motorcycle rental service, we shouldn’t really play favorites with our bikes. But when it comes to the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy in Las Vegas, our team at EagleRiders sometimes just can’t help ourselves! This machine is a favorite of riders everywhere, and every year we rent bunches of them to riders who instantly fall in love. Maybe they saw it in a movie and want to take it for a spin, or perhaps they see it on our lot and know right away it’s the one they want to try. No matter the reason, the versatile Fat Boy quickly becomes a favorite of almost every rider.

If you’re planning to visit Las Vegas soon and are interested in renting a motorcycle during your trip, reach out to EagleRider today to learn more!

How to Get into Motorcycle Riding in the New Year

Riding a motorcycle is an incredible experience. It’s a great way to relieve stress, get outside and check out some unforgettable sights and attractions. Unfortunately, a lot of people who love riding motorcycles simply get out of the habit of going on regular rides. Whether you want to begin riding on a regular basis like you used to or you’re a beginner looking to begin building up your confidence on the road, there are a lot of great motorcycle riding benefits in Las Vegas. Read on to find out how to get into motorcycle riding in the New Year.

Motorcycle riding benefits in Las Vegas

There is a lot of great benefits motorcycle riding offers. For one thing, motorcycle riding gives you the opportunity to spend time doing something fun without getting distracted by work or any of your other responsibilities. In addition, motorcycle riding allows you to meet new people and develop relationships with others who share your interests. Riding a motorcycle also gives you a unique opportunity to experience beautiful sights and explore new places in a free and liberating way.

Getting into motorcycle riding

To get into motorcycle riding and improve your riding experience, no matter your skill level, consider putting these tips into practice:

  • Focus on form: Many riders don’t consider how much strain the body can be under during a motorcycle ride, especially on longer rides. The reality is that maneuvering a motorcycle safely and effectively requires riders to engage their legs, core and arms at the same time. Moving your weight forward while you’re riding can give you more control and make it easier to maneuver your bike. Consider your form carefully and watch how experienced riders use their bodies to maximize bike performance, speed and maneuverability.
  • Use the right gear: The right gear can make all the difference when it comes to how enjoyable and comfortable your riding experience is. Quality clothing, gloves, footwear and helmets keep you protected against the elements and ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible on your ride. When you’re beginning motorcycle riding in Las Vegas, do plenty of research to find the gear that’s right for you.
  • Consider motorcycle rental options: The nicest bikes on the market can be very expensive, but that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on enjoying them. Motorcycle rental gives you the ability to try out different bikes on motorcycle tours without a huge upfront investment. This can keep you motivated to keep riding and allow you to explore motorcycle options and determine which bikes are best for you.

The Best Motorcycle Routes in Las Vegas

There’s a lot to do in Las Vegas. For starters, there’s shows, casinos, shopping and dining. But while those activities are nice, they all take place indoors. If you’re in or around the Las Vegas area and want to experience the great outdoors, taking a ride on a motorcycle is an exceptional way to do so.

This time of year is a terrific time to experience some of the best Las Vegas motorcycle routes. Weather-wise, October is one of the most comfortable months to ride a motorcycle in and around Las Vegas and to experience the best motorcycle routes.

Red Rock Canyon

Favored by many due to its proximity to Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon is only 15 minutes outside of Sin City. It’s a national park that has a 13-mile-long road you can drive on, and this scenic ride will take you about 20 to 30 minutes.

You’ll need to purchase a special National Parks Pass for this ride, and it will cost $10 per motorcycle.

Hoover Dam

One of the great engineering marvels of the modern world, Hoover Dam is actually quite close to Las Vegas, about a 45-minute ride away.

This ride will not only offer you spectacular views of Hoover Dam itself, but you’ll get a nice glimpse of Lake Mead, the Colorado River and the surrounding desert landscape on your way there and back.

If you’re at Hoover Dam you should check out the breathtaking Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge as well.

Zion National Park

Located in southern Utah, Zion National Park is a favorite place to ride among motorcycle enthusiasts. It features 230 miles of scenic road that would take a few days to explore fully. It’s home to astonishing rock formations, cliffs, gorges, arches, buttes and desert landscapes.

The most dazzling view is at a spot called Angels Landing, where you can take in the Zion Canyon and fully appreciate its magnitude and its brilliance.

Oatman, Arizona

Northwestern Arizona is home to a quaint Old Western town called Oatman. It’s a relic of a bygone area, featuring dirt roads, western shows, clapboard buildings and free-range donkeys that wander the town’s streets.

The trip will probably take multiple days, as it’s a three-hour ride from Las Vegas and the only lodging is located outside of town, but taking your time in this old Route 66 mining town will let you soak it all in.

Death Valley

On the border of California and Nevada is Death Valley National Park. If you do decide to make this trip, pack plenty of water and sunscreen, as the temperatures here can get as high as any in the world during the summer.

But this trip is worth it for the barren beauty of the salt flats, the picturesque colored canyons and the surrounding mountains that border on the miraculous. If you’re up for it and want to stay the night, check out Zabriskie Point at sunset and sunrise, as the view will dazzle you like few things you’ve ever seen.

Now that you know the best Las Vegas motorcycle routes, give us a call at EagleRider. We’d love to help you ride through Las Vegas on the best motorcycle routes so you can see the unrivaled beauty of the American Southwest.

What to Know Before Renting a Motorcycle

Cruising down the highway on a motorcycle is the ideal way to spend an afternoon for many people. If you don’t already own one, you’ll need to find a shop in town where you can rent a motorcycle in Las Vegas. The good news is that there are several businesses that specialize in rentals. The bad news is that not all of these places are reputable, and they could lead you astray with your rental.

To ensure you get the right bike for your needs and have the best time out on the open road, keep reading. This post will cover all of the things you need to consider before renting a motorcycle.

Type of bike

The first thing to think about is the style and brand of bike you’d like to rent. Although it’d be fun to rent a bike that’s totally different from what you’re used to, that might not be the safest or most comfortable option. We recommend renting a bike that you’re familiar with to ensure you get the most out of your time cruising through the Southwest.

Bike condition

Before you put down your credit card, be sure to thoroughly inspect the bike you’re about to rent. Even slight signs of wear and tear can be a safety hazard and indicate that you’re not renting from a reputable business. At EagleRider , we pride ourselves in only renting out bikes that are in pristine condition.

Safety gear

Before you rent a motorcycle in Las Vegas, double-check that all of the required safety gear is provided with the rental. After all, there’s no reason to spend extra to rent safety equipment. All EagleRider bike rentals come with helmets, goggles, gloves and more to ensure you’re safe, comfortable and street legal on your ride.

Valid documentation

Some states might allow you to rent a motorcycle without a motorcycle driver’s license, but that’s not the case in Nevada. In addition to having a valid license, all renters need to be at least 21 and have a major credit card.

Trip duration

You don’t want to rent a bike from a company that only offers hourly or multiple-day rentals. Choosing between one of those two limited options doesn’t fit your needs or budget! EagleRider has a variety of options for motorcycle rental in Las Vegas. Choose between hourly, single-day or multiple-day rentals.

Price

It’s tough to put a price on the amount of fun you’ll have on a motorcycle, but there’s no reason to spend a fortune on bike rental. We recommend doing some research and comparing rates from different companies. While you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the bike, a cut-rate rental might not be the safest option.

Rent your bike from EagleRider

With safe bikes, affordable rates and helpful employees, EagleRider is your go-to destination for motorcycle rental in Las Vegas. There’s no better time to get out and ride, so contact us today to reserve your rental!

Best Sights to See on Your Motorcycle Ride in Las Vegas

Countless tourists who visit Las Vegas never step foot outside the main Strip. While there’s plenty of fun to be had at the casinos, the hidden treasures of Nevada lie just outside the city limits along the most famous motorcycle routes. Next time you’re in the area, take a motorcycle ride past these favorite landscapes.

Red Rock Canyon

Forget about the infamous Strip. Red Rock Canyon is a short 15-minute ride from the heart of Las Vegas and puts the state’s diverse landscape on full display. Rolling mountains the color of terracotta take the breath away from even the locals. The state park has 13 miles of motorcycle-worthy roads you and your friends will enjoy. This canyon is so gorgeous, you’ll want to pull over and snap a few photos while you’re there.

Valley of Fire State Park

The go-to motorcycle route for locals is the Valley of Fire. The name itself conjures visions of fiery rock formations straight out of a sci-fi movie. Tourists will be shocked to discover the Valley of Fire lies just 20 minutes outside of Las Vegas, conveniently allowing you to get the usual casino experience and a taste of what the surrounding landscape has to offer. Plus, motorcyclists can enjoy scenic views of Lake Mead along the way.

Mount Charleston

Mount Charleston is a bit farther away, but nonetheless worth the trip. Motorcyclists who visit Nevada in the wintertime might even get to see the mountain capped with snow. Mount Charleston’s chilly climate is a welcome reprieve from the searing deserts and stands in stark contrast to the rest of Nevada. Those who are feeling ambitious can ascend the mountain and end the day on a high note. The motorcycle route leading up to Mount Charleston is beautiful itself but pales in comparison to the final destination.

Jean Dry Lake Bed

Cyclists with a little more riding experience should check out the Jean Dry Lake Bed. This adventurous motorcycle ride takes you off the beaten path and across the cracked, dry floor of what once held an expansive body of water. If you’re a fan of western films, don’t let an opportunity to visit the Jean Dry Lake Bed pass you by. Chances are, you’ve already seen this lake bed on the big screen!

Hoover Dam

Tourists who want to see the best Nevada has to offer can’t miss out on Hoover Dam. The highways surrounding Hoover Dam have changed over the years, but eager motorcyclists can still get pretty close on the loop. Located just 40 miles from your hotel in Las Vegas, a motorcycle ride past Hoover Dam will give you impressive views of the colossal landmark.

You’ve got the route all mapped out—now you just have to find the right motorcycle for the trip. Look no further than EagleRiders for bikes that are born and bred for Nevada’s toughest roads. From a trek across dry lake beds to a cruise down the Strip, our motorcycles will take you to every corner of Las Vegas and beyond.

10 reasons to travel by motorcycle. What’s yours

Do you like traveling and living out new experiences? Are you one of those people who don’t conform with run-of-the-mill plans? Whether you’re a biker or not, you’d love to travel and go on new adventures. If you want to try something unique with lots of benefits, take a look at all our reasons to travel by motorcycle.

Traveling can be the greatest thing in life, and if on a motorcycle, so much the better!

Normally we seek out new experiences when going on holiday because when we stop our daily routines, our bodies and minds are reset and our burdens are lightened.

For those who are passionate about motorcycles, this won’t come as a surprise because you’re already quite aware of all the benefits they bring, but for those who haven’t experienced them yet and are considering taking a motorcycle trip, we’ll surely give you the push that you need here at Eaglerider we offer the best and latest motorcycle for rent with the best rates.

10 reasons to travel by motorcycle

  1. Freedom and adventure

What better way to escape from the daily grind than by motorcycle? The feeling of freedom you get on two wheels is total, and riding doesn’t merely get you to the destination: it is the destination itself.

Not only because of being in contact with the wind, the sun, and the rain, it will be because you won’t feel closed in, because you are deciding your route yourself because it will be like floating on air. Riding a bike brings such a wonderful feeling of freedom, that it’s worth it just for that sensation.

Not to mention all the adventures you can have… a thousand and one!

  1. Ease of getting around

There’s no doubt that riding a motorcycle is very easy, more than an organized trip, than taking a bus, a train or your own car. You can move more freely because it’s easier to find parking and cross narrow roads, move through traffic jams, etc. Furthermore, you’ll get to your destination less stressed out than being in a car.

  1. Shared camaraderie

Motorcyclists often feel that they’re part of a larger community.

We share bonds that differentiates us from other worlds such as the car world. We generally try not to enter into rivalries. We just try to help each other out and make the route as pleasant as possible.

The riding sensation connects us to other bikers. We even have our own language to communicate, both by words and signs.

  1. Individualized throughout

It might seem contradictory, but having camaraderie and good vibes among the riders doesn’t stop the trip from being an individual experience the majority of the time.

We like getting together, going out with friends, but who hasn’t got on a bike and taken off alone? It’s a way of living in tune with ourselves, with nature and with the motorcycle.

  1. It keeps you young and active

Traveling by motorcycle is an activity that always keeps you active.

The social component is undoubtedly exciting, but so is the trip itself. Those who travel regularly seem to feel younger and are more open to what the world has to offer. It opens your mind and keeps you away from a sedentary lifestyle and routine.

  1. It improves your physical and mental health

Motorcycles can be incredibly good for your body and your mind.

Traveling by motorcycle is very healthy because we have to make an effort when riding and firing up our neurons. According to several studies, traveling by motorcycle is very healthy: it burns off calories, tones muscles, improves mental activity, cognitive functions of the brain, concentration, and reflexes.

There is no therapy that surpasses a motorcycle trip, it’s surely the best antidepressant in the world.

  1. You’ll stop being dependent

When you plan for a motorcycle trip you have to anticipate various factors so that you won’t have any problems during the trip.

On the motorcycle, you carry your cases, papers, a tent if you go camping, tools, a basic first aid kit, food, … whatever is necessary to be self-sufficient and for stopping where you want.

You’ll have a bit less comfortable, but you’ll gain in preparedness.

  1. You’ll take more advantage of the time

When traveling by motorcycle you can move more easily. If you want to get on an alternative route because you’ve discovered something halfway down the road, you can. If you have to move through a city with restrictions, it’s a lot easier. So, in the long run, this lets you make the most of your travel time.

  1. Improve your introspection

The self-determination or empowerment you get when riding a motorcycle helps you appreciate the simple things in life. So many hours on the road make you more in tune with yourself and with life in general. There is more time for reflection and contemplation.

  1. It’s fun! a sufficient reason

And lastly and perhaps the most important, we do have a lot of fun traveling by motorcycle.

That alone would be enough to decide to live out this experience. Riding a motorcycle is great fun, it offers you multiple options depending on your skills and the challenges you like.

If you want to live out the experience in another way, you can do it with Eaglerider, on our tours or on your own fully equipped motorcycle or you can even rent from the city you at from EagleShare. We can offer you several options, but you choose the route.

The open road nothing but freedom ahead and the past behind

For the motorcycle enthusiast, wherever you go your bike is always there with you. Whether you’ve been planning a camping trip since last fall or it’s an impulsive drive, there are some unique motorcycle camping hacks that will allow you to relax and enjoy those cool summer nights.

  1. Motorcycle Pull Behind Camper

If you have the money to spend, then caravanning is probably the easiest way to camp without excessive planning or packing. If you’ve got the payload then consider strapping on a motorcycle camper to that blown bike. Enjoy the comforts of home.

But then again, where’s the adventure in that besides extra weight and the inability to travel some truly unexplored dirt roads? We just wanted to throw that out there for you.

  1. Motorcycle Tent

Of course, there’s the usual way of camping, and that involved a motorbike tent such as the. A motorcycle expedition tent will provide a comfortable place to sleep under the stars and let you retain a little privacy. The MotoTent even has a vestibule area to protect your bike against the elements and nature. Dedicated motorcycle tents are lightweight and incredibly easy to set up.

  1. Tarp

This runs standard for any outdoor camping trip. Be sure to pack extra tent poles and extra tarps to protect your tent and your bike from the rain. You can even place tarp under your campground after a storm to keep it dry. The question always remains, to keep the tarp or not to keep the tarp?

  1. Motorcycle Luggage

Tent, cooking equipment, clothes, food, camping gear, and… how are you even supposed to fit all this stuff? You don’t have to roar down the highway with a garbage bag flapping at your side, there are luggage straps for that. With a little compression packing, you can place all your luggage onto your pillion in a convenient little trunk.

  1. Compression Packing

Compression packing is essential if you want to carry anything more than a backpack on your motorcycle. Place all your equipment into vacuum-sealed bags and then in a mesh compression bag. This will fit neatly into your pillion luggage. This also makes re-packing your equipment a breeze. Make the most out of limited storage space.

  1. Homely Comforts

You don’t need to bring a caravan to retain all the comforts of home. An air mattress, a fold-up chair, and a sleeping bag for star gazing can be easily packed into a rear luggage container. Just don’t overpack. That beast can only handle so much payload. Those cool summer nights don’t require any blankets, but never forget a pillow!

  1. Motorcycle Backpack

Avoid spending money on costly motorbike tents and luggage containers and get a motorcycle backpack. For the motorcycle minimalist, you can pack all your compact motorcycle gear and air mattress in one backpack to save you gas along the way.

Half of the journey is the ride, so ride comfortably.

  1. Cooking Kit

An iron skillet and some silverware are all you need to sizzle up a hot meal on the road. You could even splurge for a camping cooking stove that won’t take up too much space. Just make sure you have enough room to fit a clunky skillet on your bike.

Your motorcycle camping trip shouldn’t be fueled by anything but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Wrap some frozen food in tin foil and by the time you arrive at your destination it should be thawed and ready to enjoy. Of course, if you need some hot food, you’ve got those wheels right by your side.

  1. DIY Mosquito Repellent

A little jelly in a water bottle could go a long way in keeping the flies away from your food. Tea tree oil helps repel ticks and eucalyptus oil is a great mosquito repellent. Honestly, though, a little can of bug spray and mosquito repellent will probably save you a lot of trouble. There’s nothing worse than riding back on the open road with a bunch of itchy bug bites.

  1. Bike Repair

Don’t get stranded in the middle of nowhere without a roof over your head. Camping is fun because we get to go home, right?

An extra kickstand can go a long way in keeping your bike safe and its appearance clean. Consider bringing along a compact tire repair kit with a mini compressor and jumper cables. As we say, know your bike in and out.

There are hundreds of compact tool kits on the market. We always suggest bringing some extra fuses in case of an electrical malfunction.

  1. Fire Starters

Skip the kerosene and create a fire the way nature intended you to.There are DIY hacks you may also consider- my favorite being petroleum jelly-soaked cotton balls.

There are many DIY fire starters over the internet, but all of them require a spark. Don’t forget the matches!

Be sure to bring a flashlight if you’re burning the midnight oil. If you don’t want to rely on batteries, bottle cap candles will burn for hours and are a super easy DIY hack.

  1. Blue Automotive Towels

Don’t underestimate the power of microfiber or blue automotive towel. These towels are machine washable and will dry by the time you get to your next destination.

These towels are so strong you can even filter coffee beans through them for a brew. Pack a few towels if you need to save something that gets wet during a rainstorm. Imagine packing up your own abandoning your campsite to get some food because your fire starter got wet from a storm.

  1. Baking Soda

Need to treat a motorcycle rash, brush your teeth, or clean those pits? Baking soda is the ultimate all-in-one cleaning and cooking product to bring on any camping trip. It also serves as a great temporary first aid kit for any minor biking accidents you might get into.

Clean your products and reduce the odor of fish by washing your food with some baking soda. A little pinch of baking soda has even been found to help fight heartburn.

For the motorcycle enthusiast, wherever you go your bike is always there with you. Whether you’ve been planning a camping trip since last fall or it’s an impulsive drive, there are some unique motorcycle camping hacks that will allow you to relax and enjoy those cool summer nights.

  1. Motorcycle Pull Behind Camper

If you have the money to spend, then caravanning is probably the easiest way to camp without excessive planning or packing. If you’ve got the payload then consider strapping on a motorcycle camper to that blown bike. Enjoy the comforts of home.

But then again, where’s the adventure in that besides extra weight and the inability to travel some truly unexplored dirt roads? We just wanted to throw that out there for you.

  1. Motorcycle Tent

Of course, there’s the usual way of camping, and that involved a motorbike tent such as the. A motorcycle expedition tent will provide a comfortable place to sleep under the stars and let you retain a little privacy. The MotoTent even has a vestibule area to protect your bike against the elements and nature. Dedicated motorcycle tents are lightweight and incredibly easy to set up.

  1. Tarp

This runs standard for any outdoor camping trip. Be sure to pack extra tent poles and extra tarps to protect your tent and your bike from the rain. You can even place tarp under your campground after a storm to keep it dry. The question always remains, to keep the tarp or not to keep the tarp?

  1. Motorcycle Luggage

Tent, cooking equipment, clothes, food, camping gear, and… how are you even supposed to fit all this stuff? You don’t have to roar down the highway with a garbage bag flapping at your side, there are luggage straps for that. With a little compression packing, you can place all your luggage onto your pillion in a convenient little trunk.

  1. Compression Packing

Compression packing is essential if you want to carry anything more than a backpack on your motorcycle. Place all your equipment into vacuum-sealed bags and then in a mesh compression bag. This will fit neatly into your pillion luggage. This also makes re-packing your equipment a breeze. Make the most out of limited storage space.

  1. Homely Comforts

You don’t need to bring a caravan to retain all the comforts of home. An air mattress, a fold-up chair, and a sleeping bag for star gazing can be easily packed into a rear luggage container. Just don’t overpack. That beast can only handle so much payload. Those cool summer nights don’t require any blankets, but never forget a pillow!

  1. Motorcycle Backpack

Avoid spending money on costly motorbike tents and luggage containers and get a motorcycle backpack. For the motorcycle minimalist, you can pack all your compact motorcycle gear and air mattress in one backpack to save you gas along the way.

Half of the journey is the ride, so ride comfortably.

  1. Cooking Kit

An iron skillet and some silverware are all you need to sizzle up a hot meal on the road. You could even splurge for a camping cooking stove that won’t take up too much space. Just make sure you have enough room to fit a clunky skillet on your bike.

Your motorcycle camping trip shouldn’t be fueled by anything but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Wrap some frozen food in tin foil and by the time you arrive at your destination it should be thawed and ready to enjoy. Of course, if you need some hot food, you’ve got those wheels right by your side.

A little jelly in a water bottle could go a long way in keeping the flies away from your food. Tea tree oil helps repel ticks and eucalyptus oil is a great mosquito repellent.
