Autumn isn’t the best time for touring around Ireland on your motorcycle. It’s rainy, and the roads can be hazardous. But it’s the ultimate time to see the New England region of the USA by motorcycle, and shipping from Dublin is easier than you might think. The leaves are turning colour, but over there they aren’t dashed to the ground by lashing rain. They shine vivid yellows, oranges and reds. This part of America is a major destination in the autumn, but you can escape the crowds on quiet back roads. It’s a dream come true for outdoorsy bikers.
Motorcyclists who want to soak in this sumptuous scenery can go solo and explore on their own, find a tour group to join or mix it up and do a bit of both. You can rent a bike there, or you can look into shipping from Dublin so you can ride your familiar motorcycle on this adventure.
Whether you are shipping from Dublin or renting a motorcycle there, you need to make sure you are complying with local laws for riding. In the USA, these can vary from state to state, so you are best off to get an International Driving Licence before you go. If you are going with a tour group, the tour company can tell you what you need, and if you are travelling solo you can look up the regulations for the individual states you’ll visit online. While the weather is almost certainly going to be better than here in Ireland, you aren’t guaranteed to be rain-free. It makes sense to bring rain gear and clothing for mild days and cool nights.
Shipping a motorcycle from Ireland has both advantages and disadvantages. You need to coordinate things closely with your international shipping company, and you might need to ship your motorcycle ahead of when you leave. If you use your bike as your main means of transport, you’d need to make other arrangements. Rental prices vary, so it pays to research costs of renting versus shipping from Ireland before you decide. Our staff at Spratt Personal Shipping can explain all the details to help you make the best decision for you.
Of course, for some motorcyclists, renting a bike is out of the question. Shipping from Dublin is the only way to enjoy seeing the autumn colours of New England on your own, familiar bike. If you’ve named your motorcycle and think of it as a reliable friend, the adventure just won’t be the same on a strange rental bike. Spratt’s staff are experts at shipping from Ireland and can get your beloved bike to the USA safely so you can purr along the country roads of New England together soaking up the glorious colours, wide open sky and quaint New England charm.
