Riding a motorcycle is a great feeling. For most motorcyclists, the feeling starts as soon as you put your helmet on and fire the bike into life. But, no matter how much you love your bike, if you take a long ride you are likely to finish it feeling uncomfortable.
The good news is that you don’t have to. There are several things that you can do to make yourself more comfortable on your bike.
You should note that you can choose genuine parts like these BMW accessories or look at aftermarket items. But, while both should make you more comfortable, the genuine parts are likely to fit your bike better.
If you have ever ridden in the cold then you’ll appreciate how difficult it gets to operate your bike efficiently and effectively when your fingers start to freeze. That’s why heated grips were invented. They fit onto your bike discreetly and look just like the original grips. But, turn them on and you can keep your hands warm. That will help you ride further and continue the enjoyment.
Add Heated Clothing
Of course, if you’re riding in the cold then you’re going to need the right gear, you can’t just keep your hands warm! There are plenty of choices on the market but the best way to ensure you are warm is to use heated gear. You simply plug it into the bike, set the temperature, and enjoy the ride. It’s hard to be more comfortable.
Replace the Seat
If you arrive at your destination and your bottom feels numb then it’s time to look, at changing your seat. You’ll find there are a variety of options on the market from cushions that strap to the seat to entire replacements with additional foam cushioning.
Take some time to choose the one that you like the most and you’ll find it makes a big difference to your comfort, whether you’re on a short or long trip.
Another option is to add adjustable levers to your bike. These levers relace the original and allow you to create the perfect riding position. You won’t appreciate how much difference these make until you try them. The fact is that you are probably stretching to use the levers in their current position. Adjustable levers can be situated to suit the length of your hand and ensure you are more comfortable.
Add A Windshield
Not all bikers look great with a windshield. But, they can make a significant difference to your comfort when riding. The shield will push the wind up and over your head, ensuring you can focus on the road ahead and enjoy the ride.
You may feel that cruise control takes away part of the pleasure of riding. However, if you are covering long distances it is a great way to prevent your hand from aching or falling asleep on the throttle. They are easy to fit and you don’t need to use them all the time!
