For most motorcyclists, road tripping is not as simple as gassing up the car and heading off to your destination. There’s also a big difference between motorcycling along local streets on a Sunday afternoon and traversing hundreds of kilometers on a long journey. Free spirits throw caution to the wind and hope everything works out, but smart motorcycle travelers know that common-sense preparation goes a long way. Here are basic essential things that you need for a comfortable, safe and secure ride where the comfort, safety, and mental clarity you get from buying the right gear will pay you back in memorable riding fun.


Without the luxury of space, packing what you need for a trip on your motorcycle can be challenging. To be able to bring all the essentials that you need, external compartments are the key.

Shad designs and produces OEM applications such as cases and seats. Shad motorcycle luggage is an aftermarket option that delivers high quality and well-designed motorcycle cases, racks and saddle bags. Shad luggage is engineered for riding to hold up to the rigors of the road while adding in functional carrying capacity to make your commute or road trips more enjoyable.

Gone are the days of wearing a heavy backpack while riding. Take the weight off of your shoulders with one of Shad’s case or bag options. Most motorcycles don’t come with spacious trunks to store your essentials so Shad motorcycle luggage helps to make your ride more functional.
