The weather has been hot, very hot in California recently, but that will change real soon, making it the perfect time to jump on your motorcycle and go for a ride! Before you jump on, make sure you go through and check your motorcycle to make sure everything is in proper working order. Checking oil, blinkers, lights, and kickstand, you can find a comprehensive checklist here. Once the motorcycle is taken care of, you will need to make sure you are prepared with water, food (protein bars work great), a camera, charged phone and the proper gear, making sure your helmet is intact. From here you need to pick where you are going to go. Here is a list of some of the best California road trips on your motorcycle! Jump on, have fun, be safe, and have a great ride!
