A thread for tips and rules-of-thumb while we are away from home and travelling with our bikes I'll kick off! One thing I've recently picked up is this: In the regions pubs and clubs open their dining rooms for dinner around 5-5:30. I've figured out EAT IN YOU RIDING GEAR. Then go back to where ever it is you are bedding down. Then you can shed the riding gear, clean up and relax without having to worry about feeding yourself. On my next multi-day trip I plan to ride all day, as I have in the past. Plan to enter a town before dark and eat straight away. Then I'll organise a camping site or a room. If I'm camping I've got a full belly. I can buy some stuff for brekky, refuel then head to/find a campsite. I reckon I'm on to something with this. Or am I just stating the bleeding obvious. This approach has to make life much easier on the road.
