Can you imagine your life without your mobile today?
Is there a possibility that you will hit a restaurant or hotel every time your phone runs out of battery?
The answer to both the questions is NO!!
This is why carrying a power bank is important. It is a must-have piece of equipment in your bag. Well, if you are traveling in your car then all you need to carry is the car charger adapter and if you are not comfortable carrying the power bank on the bike ride then the best way is to preinstall a bike mobile charger fixed with a dynamo.
Maggie on the hills!!
My personal experience says cooking Maggi on the hills increases the taste almost four times.
If you have planned a trip on your bike then why eat in a restaurant? Why not cook it Yourself?
Bro, I am not talking of the cup maggie here. Yeah, cook the two minutes Maggi noodles by your camp, and the camp stove will serve the purpose perfectly. It is lightweight and easier to carry which makes it one of the best gadgets for road trips.
Well, this is one of the basic and must-have gadgets for road trips. It doesn’t need any explanation to tell you the need for a water bottle or is it? If yes, then let me tell you riding from the hills and deserts will make you thirsty, and finding water points won’t be easy.
Plus there are bottle types that carry extra storage space with them. You can make use of such bottles to make your trip easier.
If you are making a travel blog or just traveling to the countryside, to have a break from stress full life. It doesn’t matter, you must carry an action camera along with you.

So, why not keep a record of the trip.
We have been talking about all these important gadgets for trips to carry but how will you carry them?
No, not in the regular or the luggage bag, they will be difficult to carry. The best possible solution to this is the saddlebag. A saddlebag is easier to carry and can be placed on the tail light of the bike. A bag that can carry your camp, clothes, bottles and all the necessary things.
Tip – There was a problem last time I went on the trip with the saddlebag. Although the item is a must and important to carry, there are certain things that you require on an urgent basis sometimes, for example, a raincoat. So what I suggest is along with the saddlebag carry a tank bag.
Phone Holder is one of the best gadgets for road trips. It doesn’t matter if you are traveling in the car or on your bullet, you must have the GPS on, on your phone. We won’t suggest you to hold your phone in one hand and ride with another.
Instead, carry a phone holder, that is what it is made for.
Whats the most unpredictable thing when you are traveling to new place? I say the weather.
So, be ready to face everything. If you have planned a bike trip. It is suggested to have a windscreen, it will protect you from all the dust you are going to face on the way to your destination.
Well, now that you are aware of all the gadgets for road trips, this is not all you need to carry.
You need to checklist a few things before. This includes all the papers insurance, pollution check, Registration Certificate, and license.
If you plan to cross international borders, you must carry your identity proof along with you.
