Motorcycle Pro Tips and Life Hacks

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say there are life hacks for everything, and the motorcycle life is included. DIY motorcycle tips and mods, home decor and crafts, and do-it-yourself helmet expression are just a few.

What a wipeout.

On the road and need to clean up all those bugs you killed? Use baby wipes. They’re easy to carry and work great for a short-term cleaning solution for pretty much every surface, leathers and helmets included.

Take a stand.
Crush a coke can and put it under your kickstand to keep it from sinking into soft ground or sliding on unstable surfaces.
Head in a fog?
Use dandruff shampoo, like Head & Shoulders, to wash your visor. After rinsing, it will act as an anti-fog coating.

Baby it's cold outside.
Does cold weather have your gloved fingers a little numb? Wear tight-fitting latex gloves under your riding gloves for an extra layer of lightweight insulation.
