What does it take for a long-distance motorcycle ride in Patagonia? I ask myself this question almost every week. I am constantly trying to find ways to make myself more prepared for the tours I guide with Moto Patagonia. There are three main things I focus on, the physical, mental and the cultural. First is being physically fit to take on day after day of motorcycle riding in remote areas with different road surfaces, weather and duration. This requires me to be physically strong and resist getting sick. Its important to recognize the amount of stress you will be putting on your body on a big motorcycle trip. I personally ride bicycles to get in shape and that has two awesome benefits. Whether on my full suspension mountain bike or my gravel bike both my moto riding skills and my fitness are gaining huge benefit regarding balance, cornering and endurance. With many hours on my bicycles I can help boost strength and riding skill. Second is being mentally prepared to ride a motorcycle in Patagonia. They say, those who rush in Patagonia lose their time. You must be prepared for the little things like road construction, rain, and flat tires. The people living full time in Patagonia have a different sense of urgency. Slowing down and recognizing that things will be much more relaxed will help you enjoy your ride. Culturally Patagonia is far different than the big fast paced cities of Chile and Argentina. Being physically, mentally and culturally prepared for the remoteness of Patagonia will help you have the most fun and simply put the best motorcycle ride possible.
