Jim Martin and the co-hosts on ARR RAW talk about what you need to consider when looking for a place to put your head down for the night, and how to handle doing maintenance on your bike when travelling.
- when choosing somewhere to camp overnight, what are the things you look for that make an ideal camp spot?
- camp away or near the road?
- do you look for a site with water, or not worry about it?
- do you plan ahead or wing it?
- what time of day do you settle for the night?
- what if you’re in an urban area, have you ever just found an out of the way spot or truck stop and set up for the night?
- unusual camping experiences
- best ways to get work done?
- deciding on reputable shops?
Doing it yourself:
- where to work?
- what to do with old oil?
- setting up your work area?
- essential lubricants to travel with (to be carried)
- on-tool items that must be carried (duct tape, zip ties - what else?) good for quick fixes
