Touring Tips From Our Team

We asked around the office here at Scooter central, what our staff’s favourite tips for touring on their scooter are and here is what we came up with:

Scooter Central’s Top Tips for Touring

  • Carry a spare key. Hide it somewhere on your bike with a cable tie or duct tape, or better yet, trade spare keys with a travelling companion.
  • On high-mileage days, you’ll feel a lot better if you carry eye drops. Use them every time you stop for fuel, especially if you use an open face helmet.
  • If you’re nearing the end of your riding day and want to set yourself up for a quick getaway in the morning, consider riding to the far side of the next city or town you reach before you stop for the night, eliminating urban traffic the next morning.
  • Always fill up at the end of each day. It’s a pain to get all dressed up ready to ride in the morning only to have to stop a few kilometres later for fuel.
  • Keep your stuff dry in saddlebags etc by using garbage bags as waterproof barriers. Buy the thicker and more durable ones.
  • Consider buying some velcro style saddlebags for extra storage. We sell them here at the store, and always use them when we have extra gear to carry.
  • Use earplugs to help reduce wind noise. This is a must have item to reduce fatigue on longer rides.
  • Don’t forget that Australia Post is just about everywhere. They’re perfect when you spot that set of jousting sticks you’re dying to buy and your hundreds of miles from home. When we go to the MotoGP in Melbourne each year, we ship our street clothes to the accommodation to save having to travel with extra gear.
  • Don’t forget a small towel or rag for cleaning your visor, wiping dew off seats, wind shields and mirrors, and even for doing a quick whole-bike clean up. A moist microfibre cloth in a zip lock bag works best.
  • Pack an extra occy strap, a shifting spanner, 6 cable ties and a roll strong of tape. This will fix many common problems (like a mirror coming loose)
  • Pick up a Corazzo Nomad bag that hangs from your wing mirrors to be able to see and use your phone GPS as well as handy storage for quick access to those items you need most like sunscreen, sunglasses, garage remote, wallet, visor cleaner etc.
  • Go ahead, buy that GPS you’ve always wanted. They’re perfect not only for finding yourself, but also for allowing you the freedom to get lost in the first place.
  • Look over your scooter carefully every morning on the road. Checking the simple stuff-air pressure, oil level, loose or missing fasteners-can save you from big trouble.
  • Stash a little hidden cash somewhere on the bike or on you, so you can make something happen when all else fails.
  • Take a look back at where you were parked every time you leave some place. You’d be amazed at what you find.
  • A mobile phone can be a lifesaver in an emergency. Make sure to charge up each evening.
  • Good riding gear really is worth it. Waterproof, breathable linings in jackets will transform the way you think about bad weather. We love the Corazzo range here at the store, because they make a product to suit your style of riding. Make sure to check it out.
  • On a long tour, plan for at least one day every week of doing nothing. Time is the ultimate luxury, and can mean the difference between a great holiday experience and an endurance run.
  • Be realistic with your daily mileage. In really scenic areas, 150 kms may make a very full day. Don’t assume you can achieve freeway mileage even on good back roads.
  • Guidebooks can be invaluable. We use a guidebook called ‘Bitchen Bitumin’ which is designed for all of us two wheel nuts. Grab a copy and start planning your route. The route planning before you leave is a big part of the fun of touring.
  • It is possible to use a kit to make emergency repairs on tubeless or tube-type tires alongside the road. But before you count on this as your safety net, practice using the kit on an old tire in your garage. Check out our puncture repair kits.
  • If you call a hotel (even if you’re already in town)–you can often get a better rate than if you just walk in. And if you have access to a computer, there are some spectacular Internet-only deals available these days. Either way, do yourself a favour and have a reservation by 4 pm.
  • Try to not be riding country roads at sunset. Kangaroos and other wildlife can venture onto the roadside at this time, and visibility can be difficult when the sun is low.
  • In the morning, get up and ride for an hour, then have breakfast. Food is a great motivator to knock off those first few miles each day.
  • A tank of fuel in a your typical 250cc or bigger scooter will see you do 200kms +. BUT, its best to ride no longer than 1 1/2 hours, so be prepared to stop for fuel on most breaks.
  • If you don’t need fuel, stop anyway and walk around the scoot a few times before continuing on. You’ll be surprised at how refreshed you feel.
  • Layer up your clothing in cold conditions. It keeps you warmer and is also easier to strip off as the day warms up.
  • Take two pairs of gloves, one for the colder mornings and another lighter pair for later in the day.
  • If it’s really cold, put your gloves on the bottom of your under seat storage when you stop for fuel and they will be warmer from the engine heat when you put them back on.
  • An anti fog visor is a must if conditions are expected to be cold.
  • A Corazzo Under Hoody is the best piece of cold weather clothing on the planet. You can even wear the hood under your helmet and it keeps you super toasty.
  • Carry a neck sock to keep out the drafts on cool mornings. Low cost and very effective, we have them is store.
