Beginning riders often have no clue as to what else they need to buy after they have purchased their first motorcycle. It turns out that the list of motorcycle gear is quite long.

Lots more can be added later as you increase the size of your bike. Of course you still need to find places to store all the extra motorcycle gear. That's why people end up with big touring bikes pulling trailers or rat bikes piled high with junk festooned with multiple interlocking bungee nets.
