Do you play up on the first day and night of a long motorcycle trip and then suffer the second-day blues with a headache and muscular aches and pains?
The first day of a long ride is easy because you are fired up, excited and fresh from sleeping in your own bed the night before.
You tend to ride hard and long and at the end of that day, you are keen to share your bench-racing stats with your mates over a drink or three.
But if you plough straight into a drinking session, you could pay for it with muscular aches and pains and a hangover the next day.
Aches, pains and headaches are dangerous because they take your attention away from the job at hand – riding.
The best way to avoid the problem is with preparation.
