The winding roads of the countryside during the summer season, beckon to biking enthusiasts all around New South Wales. When you see the vast expanse of the road in front of you, running between the mountains and trailing into dirt paths and off roads less travelled, all any biker would want to do is rev their motorbikes and ride towards the horizon. Before you step on the accelerator, check if you have got these things in place first;
The Right Kind of Machine
The perfect biking experience is brought to life by the right piece of equipment. Depending on how fast you are planning to ride and whether or not you are a racer, the engine capacity, brake strength, gearing, controls and the bike frame will need to be altered.

Safety First: Clothing and Headwear
Just as you think of the machine of your choice and how safe it is, you need to think about your personal safety as well. Gearing up in protective clothing such as a biking jacket, bike pants designed to withstand dirt and be durable against the weather and a helmet that provides sufficient protection to the head and face while shading the eyes are important pieces of attire that every biker should essentially own. While keeping you safe from any external harm, the right kind of clothing will also support the speed of the bike and make your body more flexible by supporting the movements of your body while riding rather than obstruct it.
All the Parts in Place
A motorcycle is not fit for long rides on isolated country roads if its components are not of the expected standard. So before you set out on your much awaited journey, get your bike checked to see if any parts need to be replaced or upgraded. For example, the engine may need to be upgraded to a higher capacity racing engine if you are hoping to race. The exhaust system will need to work really smoothly to support continuous riding hours. You also need to make sure that the brake system is well in operation so as to not cause any trouble along the way. The control and cable works need to be properly inspected to confirm that the bike is apt for racing and fast riding. The wheels need to be properly aligned and the tyres need to be inspected for proper grip and friction so that the bike will perform well as it speeds along the long straight roads of the countryside.
