Half way through the year already…wow! It’s so hard to believe how fast these months are flying by. You won’t want to miss out on any of this great weather riding & you’ve got plenty of places to ride to that’s for sure. We keep adding events of all sorts. The possibilities are endless & just like the old saying goes, it’s not about the destination…it’s the journey. Make the most of your time on the road & you’ll have plenty of memories to talk about for years. It’s fun to be spontaneous but planning your trip ahead a little can save you a lot of stress & frustration if things don’t go as planned. Fill your gas tank & check your oil before you head out & check your gauges frequently. Check your tires & make sure they have the proper weight of air in them. Under inflated tires can make for some rough handling, especially around curves & turns….trust me, it makes for a miserable ride – pump ‘em up if they’re low. Bring along a fully charged cell phone, GPS (if you have one), small tool pouch, fix a flat, extra bandanas, water & a snack. A small compact mirror comes in handy too if you need to reflect light from the sun or your cell phone to flag down help. A small bottle of Advil or other headache medicine, eye drops & sunscreen may also become welcomed passengers. Driver’s license, insurance, vehicle registration, AAA card along with some cash & your bank and/or credit cards you’ll want to be sure to take along too. Whatever your special needs may be, think a little bit ahead, even if you’re just taking an afternoon cruise, so you can enjoy your ride wherever you plan to roam.
