Before you head out for a fun road trip this summer, you want to ensure your bike is equipped with the best gear. You will find plenty of Suzuki and Honda OEM parts with Bike Bandit, and here are three essential items every motorcycle enthusiast should have.

  1. New Tires

 Do you still drive your motorcycle with the tires it came with when you bought it? There is nothing wrong with all season tires, but you may want to consider winter and summer tires for part of the year. During the summer, you want specific summer tires that come with specialized tread patterns to enhance precision with the road. They also come with shallower tread depth to give you more stability when you turn corners. Summer tires will also help prevent hydroplaning on wet surfaces to an extent.

  1. Brake Pads

Before a big road trip, you want to inspect every component of your motorcycle to ensure all critical parts still function. This is particularly important for your bike’s brakes. Check to make sure the brake pads are still reliable, and invest in a new pair of pads fitted for your specific make and model of bike to brake with peace of mind.

  1. Engine Guard

 You may not want to think about potentially ending up in an accident, but they happen all the time. You should absolutely invest in protective components, such as an engine guard, that you can attach to the exterior of your motorcycle to safeguard interior parts. You may be able to reduce the amount of damage your bike sustains in a collision, and you may qualify for certain insurance discounts if you invest in protective parts.
