Can I carry loads on my motorcycle?

If you’re going to carry a load on your motorbike, you must make sure that the load is secure and the motorbike isn’t overloaded.

Look at your motorbike handbook for information about how best to safely carry loads. You can buy specialist luggage and load-securing equipment, such as panniers, tank bags, top boxes and luggage racks, at motorbike supplies shops. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions or ask for specialist help to make sure you use the equipment correctly.

Use the same tips as when carrying passengers to prepare your bike for carrying a load and when riding with a load.
