A question for those of you who have toured around Europe......


Do/did you take fluid top ups with you for you bike?? Oil,water or is it the case of travel the lightest & if I needed buy.


What about topping up the screen wash & getting the air-con re gassed :-P :-P :-P

one of the guys takes oil with him as his bike guzzles it. But nobody else does. Same goes for all other fluids, nobody bothers. my new bike is due it's next service at 6000 miles and it's highly likely I will do that, oil/filter change before we go. Having the bike serviced before you go is always a good idea.


You can generally pick up anything you might need, like oil. At almost any petrol station so there's no need to carry it with you unless you're really fussy and insist on a particular brand.

Never taken anything


but then my bike uses no oil between the 6k services :)

 

You forgot the mention you don’t need to take chain lube. :wink:

Fluids ? Not required, unless you remember that air is a fluid (but not normally liquid).

I carry a tyre pressure gauge, puncture repair for tubeless tyres and a mini compressor.

Never needed any of it in 30 years of European trips .....

Leave it home once and you will.
