Get Ready For Your Touring Holiday

So you've booked the time off work, your motorcycle is raring to go and you've made plans for an amazing break with your friends or loved one - what could possibly go wrong?

Well, sadly, quite a lot actually! The weather can be unpredictable – particularly if you're enjoying a stay-cation in this country. Even if you're not, but you're planning to cover some serious miles on the continent you're likely to encounter some of that pesky wet stuff at some point, which might put a dampener on even the best laid plans.

Don't get caught out...

A space-efficient, light option to ensure you don't get caught out is an ultra-handy H-D® rain suit. With a range of options to choose from, all offer you durable protection against the elements and fold up neatly for minimal storage needs.

Store More...

To make sure your luggage stays dry and protected we have a range of waterproof shrink sacks available, that will not only keep your things dry but also shrink them down, so you can fit more in your panniers!

Just you, the open road...and, where are we?

We all know that feeling, you're at one with your metal and with the road, a destination doesn't seem needed when the journey feels this good. But what happens when you run out of road – or gas – and you don't know where you are? Our H-D® Road Tech Zumo sat-navs can be easily installed onto your motorcycle and come loaded with UK and European maps, so they're ready to explore whenever you are!

Fit Shop

Make sure you're fully compatible before you commit to a week or more away together! According to research around 40% of you aren't satisfied with the fit of your ride, so we created Fit Shop, an area designed specifically to ensure everything ‘fits’. The one-stop shop in dealership lets you try a host of different Parts & Accessories to ensure you and your pride and joy are completely compatible, providing maximum comfort and therefore longer riding hours. Ever been hindered by backache, tired hands or an overextended reach? Don’t let anything ruin your touring holiday in 2014!
