Motorcycle Packing Checklist

Click Here for a printable version of the list below. It's handy for walking around the home while you pack. This page gets updated often, so bookmark it now!

“Our pack & ride checklist for motorcycle touring gear is inspired by a long distance trip across the United States Pacific Northwest.”

Inspired by a long distance trip from the Midwestern to Pacific Northwestern United States, this list serves as a basic reference for the intermediate rider. Use it to your advantage! You'd be wise to note that it accounts for multiple riders. Clicking a check mark will remove an item from the list. A page refresh resets everything.

With regard to socks, underwear and t-shirts, the specified clothing linked below are quick-dry and hand-wash friendly. Only two of each should leave your doorstep (pack one and wear the other). Efficient and well thought out products such as these minimize the overall storage footprint required and thereby lighten the load for more nimble riding.
